I'm a calm person and way better in listening than smalltalk. Besides that, I like to know how stuff works, at least so far that I can get it to work the way that I want. I love playing around with new consumer electronics to see what they are capable of.
I tend to have a good sense of humour, too, and sarcasm is my second mother tongue.
I am, by the way, REALLY bad in reading subtexts in verbal communication. Id rather hear things less polite but straight forward than in some unnecessarily encrypted way. If you need to tell me something, just do it. In fact, I find it very annoying when people are unable to communicate clearly.
In return, I rarely hide my opinion behind flowery words, but rather say honestly what I think. I am absolutely able to come to terms with compromises unless they completely contradict what I stand for. In the latter case, I can be rebellious and stubborn too (and I have a little history in fighting authorities for acting in an unacceptable way).
I do like (almost) all animals, I especially adore cats for their ability to be part of a family and still stay independent. Also, I am a helpful guy who always offers assistance to friends when needed and who won't abandon you when times get rough.
