How does one describe themselves without sounding narcissistic?
I'll give it a go.Real Life Reudh:
I'm twenty, male, about 180cm / 6'0" and 80 kg / ~170 lbs. I have vivid red hair (akin to Valid_Dark's) courtesy of my Dutch / Dutch-Friesian / British lineage, and the beginnings of a beard. (I hope one day to have a superb ginger beard, but I fear I have to wait I'm relatively muscular, but I haven't really been doing many weights lately, so that's beginning to lapse a little.
I'm studying the first year of a Bachelor of Biomedical Science, which I hope to move into Paramedicine or Medicine later on.
I wear glasses, but I have only done so for the last one and a half years. My vision is more or less normal with the glasses; without, somewhat short-sighted.
I am highly eccentric in my behaviour and am considered rather odd but very kind.
This eccentricity may stem from a diagnosed Asperger's Syndrome, though I'm only just considered over the border into Asperger's.
I have had one girlfriend, which ended poorly for a few reasons, the reason finally being that she was having trouble understanding her sexuality (and had been having boyfriends to convince herself.). I don't think I have had any other girls outrightly state "I am attracted to you" without being joking.
I have trouble telling when others are sarcastic.
I'm quite a good conversationalist, except when I'm tired (talking end of a long day tired) or drunk.
I am well known as quite kind and wise. As a result, many females assume that I am gay, because (This really happened once) "Heterosexual guys aren't nice to me unless they want something."
One time, a friend while drunk described me as a 'Victorian gentleman... a relic of a lost era...'
I have a deep seated fascination with how the world works.
I enjoy bushwalking. When bushwalking, I pack huge amounts of food and water and carry my pocket knife, just in case.
I consider myself reasonably fit. I am in quite good health.
I generally wear jeans (normal fitting or skinny) of either blue or black colouring. I tend to wear relatively trendy clothing, but I hate having logos or visible tags.
I'm well known within my neighbourhood as "That guy who knows random things."
I consider myself quite strong; I can lift one sibling in each arm (one's 14, 65 kg and the other's 17, 60 kg), though the experience is tiring for me and painful for them.
Gaming wise, I'm a big fan of RPGs, sandbox games and similar. To a lesser extent I enjoy FPSes or RTSes.
I'm also a bit of a retro gamer.
As for my name and avatar:
Reudh has a number of origins.
Back when I played Runescape I was excited over the 'Display Name' update that allowed you to use a name that wasn't your username as your display name and promptly drew up a list of potential names. I made most of them up.
I narrowed it down to:
Reudh - A bastardised translation of Ruadh, so it's easier to say. It's pronounced roughly 'Royth,' with a th as in 'that'.
Ruadh - Scottish Gaelic for 'Red' - I am utterly proud of being a redhead due to the hate I have suffered as a result of being redheaded. It's pronounced a bit like 'Ruarth'.
Rauthaz - Proto-Germanic for 'Red'. Sensing a trend here?
Llansing - I don't even. Tried to make it sound Scandinavian but it kinda failed.
I then affixed Lord to it, and struck on the idea of Reudh being so eccentric he insisted
on being called Lord, but wasn't really. I could probably find the origin story of Lord Reudh on the Runescape Forums if you're interested.
Anyway, Reudh is roughly an idealised version of me... Ha.
