Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok, let's try once more...
To beginn describing myself, I would probably say that I'm rather
independent. I was using public transport on my own by age 8 (which
other mothers thought of as very dangerous at that time), started
off the St. Jackobs Way pilgrimage on my own at age 16 and moved
out from home at age 20, Nowadays I'm going from country to country
to learn languages and their culture while trying to start my
professional career (kind of hopless).
No-one would probably make the mistake of considering that I'm an
average guy (once one person did, and was utterly dissappointed): I
don't watch TV at all, I'm a morning person which goes early to bed
and doesn't like clubbing, and if I could I would spend my life
studying at the university (someday I shall return to study some
more masters, meanwhile I learn languages...).
On the other hand, for those people brave enough to try to get to
know me better, I'm also a very open, sincere and warm hearted
person. I mean, I'm like that all the time, but I guess that it's
not automatically perceivable to all because of my kind of cynic
attitude and dark sense of humor. But once you know me, I'm a bit
like a big dog: faithfull, caring, funny, absorbing and time
Oh, I forgot: I'm also housetrained. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Was born, went through school, grew wide instead of tall, went to
university, shrank to normal proportions again, studied a master in
Bioethics (in what? In Bioethics: you heard it right, even if no
one knows what it is), went to Russia over winter, came back (which
is not necessarily obvious, some people don't), and had the crazy
idea of joining the Swiss Army for fun.
Well, it wasn't too fun... I guess comedies like "Achtung, Fertig,
Charlie!" are not the best source to create ones' expectations
about reality: but I succeeded once more and I'm free like a bird!
Now I'm planning and organizing my new projects for 2015: I have
basically already booked the whole year:
-From January till April 2015 I will be in the far far South
Africa, getting my English Proficiency exam and the Divemasters'
course to become a professional diver. And of course, I'm really
looking forward to get to know that amazing and not very well known
country! If you are from there, I would be very happy if you showed
me around! :)
From May til July, I will be back in Russia. Destination not yet
defined: maybe Irkutsk? Novosibirsk? Vladivostok? There is only one
rule: the farther, the better. :D
From July till October I will be back in Switzerland, in Stans.
It's important to give each country at least a second chance.
And finally, the rest of the year I will be working in the Balkans,
and let's see who I meet there! haha
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sarcasm and Trolling around...
Studying languages and stuff.
Planning great adventures, putting them into motion, and then
regretting the very day I came up with that "brilliant" idea. Yes,
my life can be actually divided between those moments where I'm
actively looking for "adventures" (=problems), and those where I
have to regret having found them! :D
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The only thing I know is that usually everyone knows me but I don't
know them. Some years ago it was obvious that this was because I
was somewhat over-weighted, but nowadays I have no clue as to why
I'm so noticeable...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I love movies and cinema. I like war movies and I'm
discovering the inmense production of russian films (Mosfilm),
which are sadly mostly unknown in Europe.
Books: There are way too many books to be read as to read a book
twice. Good thing that I have a good memory!
Lately, for example, I read 2 interesting books: "Narziss und
Goldmund", by Hermann Hesse, and "The rise and fall of the third
chimpanze", by Jared Diamond. I can also add "Edad Prohibida".
Curiously, I have had quite a lot of time for reading in the army!
Food: I love going out to restaurants for dinner! As someone once
put it, "your hobby is eating". He was as right as one can be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Home is where internet connects itself automatically, so probably
internet is vital to me! Although lately I don't even know what to
do with it!
Lebensraum: I guess that I'm a rather independent person and that I
need quite a lot of time for myself. Also, from year to year I
increasingly feel the urge to travel abroad for some months.
Routine wasn't made for me!
Learning: Life would be pointless if you couldn't learn new
Women: Life would definitively be pointless and dull if there
weren't women around to put some color into it with their easy
laughs and their shining smiles and their eyes full of warmth.
And because that only makes four, and people always tend to say how
much they need air and water and food to subsist, I will bring two
more fundamental needs than those: the eternal laws of nature and
carbon based chemistry. Without those, we could definitively not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much I simultaneously love and hate humanity... and what "42"
Also, I'm still trying to solve the mystery about why women aren't
attracted by good guys, even though they usually spend half of
their profile swearing about how much they hate "bad guys". Maybe
they don't recognize a good guy when they encounter one? Or is it
too good to be true and they simply don't believe it? Are good guys
scary because their motivation to be good guys is not
understandable? Is it biology and genes? Am I thinking too
...And, of course, I usually spend my nights elaborating plans for
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
What is a typicall friday nowadays? :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that i like to cuddle a lot. :D
