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 consuming. :D
Oh, I forgot: I'm also housetrained. :)
