So, I was born in Jo'burg and moved to Portugal when I was 9. I spent all my life there, not feeling at home and not identifing my core belifs with those of the Portuguese society.
So, on January 2nd 2013, I arrived in CT alone and without knowing anyone here or the city itself.
Regarding "what I do", my life was very much dedicated to humanities. Studied social communication, marketing and psychology and dabbled in some other areas too.
Since I became aware of myself that I knew I'd always love people. Socializing and helping others was something that really resonated in me.
I'm an observer of human nature, a scholar of human behavior and I continue to maintain my love of people.
But Cape Town is an unforgiving city when it comes to meeting people and making friends.
I find that most Cape Townians are rather cliquey, keeping themselves closed to new friends and trend followers which isn't something I can't identify with.
I pretty much like to do my own thing and don't give a damn about what's the latest fashionable thing to do or what other people think about that.
At my core I am an empathetic soul. I like meeting people and interacting with them and building meaningful friendships.
I'm a firm believer of Universal Love, changing the world one mind at a time and the pay-it-forward theory.
I seem to have a good sense of humor because often the people listening to my string of stories of nonsense are laughing.
I'm also partial to a good sense of humor, wit, intelligent conversation, challenging minds and non-judgemental people.
After a life of not believing in anything metaphysical or not proven by a reliable scientific source, I've now decided to put my skepticism aside and start trying new things I believe will make me a better person overall: Yoga and Reiki.
Personally I love music so concerts and festivals are a must (if with good company), watching football, rugby (still learning), tennis.
Going out with a group of potential and/or friends to a bar to have a drink and talk about absurd things with the sole intention of being silly and having a good time.
I have quite an incisive sense of humor, loaded with all kind of unorthodox things to say and absolutely politically incorrect. I'm gifted also with a dirty mind. Well I lived in Portugal and when in Rome...
But I also believe that humor can be found in anything and we must try not to take ourselves and others too seriously.
I'd like to start doing adventurous things like skydiving, shark cage diving and other interesting things that my cross my mind.
I'm not a kid anymore but it's never to late and I still have it in me to try something that's sounds fun at least once.
I'm not on this site with the primary intention of finding love.
I want to make friends. People to hang out with, do some of these crazy things with me, have deep and not so deep conversations with and slowly getting to know them.
Basically, friends. I'm looking for friends.
Casual sex is out of the question and I must explain that I do not accept this concept of "dating" that puts too much pressure on a simple conversation.
I'm partial to having a drink or coffee in a nice quiet place and talking to our hearts delight.
When it comes to the heavy and grinding "quest for true love", it's not a priority and if it is to happen, a friendship is a very good beginning.
That said, warning, I'm a complex person that may become complicated to deal with if rubbed the wrong way (which isn't that easy to do but...); highly intuitive, more often than not I see right through bullshit so don't waste both our times; obligatory characteristics: honesty, integrity, goodness, kindness and intelligence.
So, that's basically me. I might change many things and contradict myself because I'm constatly questioning everything. But those principles that I've listed above are who I am always. The rest is human day to day conclusions, so mutable.
As it seems so popular and in demand these days, I'd just like to add that I'm ENFJ.
It really doesn't matter because not one thing can ever define me or anyone else for that matter. But happy to indulge...
