Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Italian, or at least so says my passport. Regardless, I don't
watch nor care for football, I don't usually drink coffee, and I
can be surprisingly quiet and calm. I've been told these are
unusual traits, in an Italian.
I have never really lived in my home-town, as I started travelling
from a young age. Actually, I have never lived for more than 4
years in the same city or country, and have no idea of what it is
like, to be "rooted" in a place, to feel nostalgic about it..
I'm kinda introvert, and usually prefer to hang out with a small
group of good friends rather than with a crowd of strangers. I
sometimes try to push my boundaries, but I mostly fail. I love
spending time by myself, but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy doing
stuff with other people too.
Mostly, I am naturally at peace with myself and others. In practice
this means that I hardly ever get annoyed or angry, and that I
naturally avoid any type of drama in my life. I am surprisingly
honest, and quite shameless.
I try not to judge other people unless I have a clear idea of what
their background is, and where they're coming from. Life and human
behaviour are both complicated matters, and trying to simplify
things as plain right/wrong, smart/stupid, cool/lame, etc, doesn't
really simplify things. When you're with me, you can feel free to
do anything you want, so long as it does not harm or harass
I'm kinda tired of trying to initiate conversations while upholding
demands like "don't say hi, be interesting, entertain me". Write me
something and I'll gladly have a conversation with you. "hi" is ok.
Last time I checked, it was still a very normal way to start
talking to another person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm on a PhD program in Robotics and Machine Learning at the
University of Stuttgart. At the same time, I am following German
courses at the VHS.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sleeping, poker, board and card games in general, ice-skating,
looking as if I'm bored or annoyed when I'm not.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My ear-ring, my very dark and impenetrable eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Purely fiction, either thrillers (dexter, the diceman),
sci-fi (asimov) or fantasy (harry potter, game of thrones), just
stories of weird people or events (Norwegian Wood). I also enjoy
reading text-books about the subjects I work with.
Movies: As above, with the addition of cartoons and musicals of
various sorts (JCS, The Book of Mormon, Wicked, Pippin, Hedwig and
the angry inch, etc.. ).
Shows: British panel shows (QI, 8 out of 10 cats, big fat quiz of
the year, etc..)
Music: Definitely not a music snob, I can live with anything. Kinda
do like rock and indie rock a bit more. I do tend to listen more
Daft Punk, Foo Fighters, the Shins than other stuff..
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good novel.
A good text book.
My backgammon board.
My running sneakers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Whether someone in the future will be thinking my same
Whether someone in the past has thought my same thought.
Whether they will think or have thought of me as someone in their
past or future who has thought their same thought.
How to win at everything.
Which parts of my personalities are just learned behaviour, which
parts are built-in human nature, and which parts are truly
Whether we have free will.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
By myself I enjoy browsing the internet, watching a movie (or some
nice british panel shows), studying, reading, playing online poker,
practicing my poor guitar skills, skyping and/or chatting with
When I'm in a company I enjoy watching a movie, playine some
board/card game, going out drinking.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty shameless when it comes to saying embarassing/private
things about myself, but I'm wiser than putting unnecessary things
