Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Muscat, Oman and raised for the first six years of my life
in Malaysia. Lived in the Netherlands ever since. Living in
Rotterdam, playing sports, writing, cooking, sailing and doing
about everything that's worth doing with or without my
Overall I'm a very calm guy with some ridiculous outbursts. It's
not easy to get me mad, but if you really insist on being a d*ck, I
will play that game and play it well.
Things people have said about me:
-"Your room contains as many weird things as your mind, and that's
- "You're the kind of guy who should be driving an old Land Rover
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a program and project manager at a high-tech company on
the verge of product launch . Basically I'm the planning monster. I
like to row, sail, ski, play squash, play golf, and being at
parties talking to strangers.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking crap that doesn't sound like crap. Playing the devil's
advocate. Being a tour guide at a museum. Making tiramisu. Fixing
costumes for fancy dress parties. Finding exactly what I need for a
ridiculously low price. The list is endless...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know what they notice, maybe my length (not THAT length),
my style of dressing, and you will doubtlesly encounter my dirty
mind....A dirty mind is a joy forever, and i have been enjoying it
a lot! Maybe you'll notice i sing along with EVERYTHING, and
sometimes i'll be singing at you...Maybe you'll notice the
everlasting big fat smile on my face when i'm surrounded by people.
But most probably, you'll notice that i have noticed you!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Catch-22, A short history of nearly everything, Brotherhood
of war, In the middle of the road as fast a possible, The Romanov
Prophecy, Soldaat van Oranje, Am westen nichts neues. Pretty much
everything you toss in front of me.
Movie: Forest Gump, Blood Diamond, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Spy
Game, The Thomas Crown Affair, Weddingcrashers, Band of Brothers,
Hornblower, Interview with a vampire, The Life Aquatic.....I love
watching movies, and I do it a lot. I see them as entertainment,
and I'm not very interested in meaningful 'art house' things. The
most important thing for me in a film is ambiance, and I will watch
a carefully selected 5 minutes of a movie just to get in the right
mindset for something.
Music: Anything, but really like '30 and '60-'70 mostly old pop and
Food: I like almost everything, and I even enjoy cooking it. My
specialties are mostly oriental and Italian, but I have a
particular fondness of having fun with old Dutch cuisine at the
moment. The general idea of Dutch cuisine is horrible, but can be
really interesting if you do it right.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My heart is always set on leaving the place i'm in. It would be a
bummer though, to see the world without good food, smokes, sunshine
and booze. Other things:
-The Holy Trinity (soy sauce, powdered ginger and galanga
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time having thoughts like:
-what to do if you'd win the lottery
-what my cat is thinking
-why people can be so stupid
-why do the buttons on mens clothes are on the other side than
womens clothes (I know the answer to this now!)
-if everyones view of what blue is, is the same
-why beer tastes so good, even though it has such an undiserable
and so on, and so on, and so on...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a good movie, listening to crappy live music in the pub,
going out with my friends or spending way too much time in the
I have to be home by 12, or a pumpkin turns into me. And even
though the idea of mutual clone masturbation is interesting, I
think 1 is enough.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I would have definitely enjoyed being born a century ago. Oh....and
i am in fact Washington Irving...
I believe life is about collecting experiences, the good and the
bad. This has resulted in some stuff that I'm typing under the
title: "Things I wouldn't tell my mother." Ask me about it.
I honestly don't get the Sushi-craze. Sashimi is awesome, but you
can leave the cold rice somewhere on vacation where it will
thoroughly enjoy itself.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've read this far you'll have a pretty good idea of the
person I was when I wrote it, and still am most of the time.
You: Very intelligent, educated, mature. You don't need a man to
base your self-confidence on. You're a sparring partner, not a
head-nodder. You love to dress up for yourself, not for my sake.
You like it when I bore you with endless amounts of 'fun facts' in
museums and during films. You're your own social entity, and know
you way around a party with only strangers around.
We: Have a drink, laugh, get drunk (or have coffee for hours on
end). I'll cook, you'll sit there drinking wine and being pretty
(helping me cook is dangerous; lots of running, incoherent words,
and flying knives; and I simply like to cook for you). Dinner turns
into long talks, and playing eachother different songs with an
almost competitive enthousiasm.
Lots of 'Damn.... the bottle's empty...already'-moments, making
silly future plans we don't take seriously...
I want to be romantic, and I want someone to share that ambiance
with me, who will build it with me. I'm not here to take you for a
ride....I'm looking for someone who will build that ride with
Interested? Shoot me a message, anything at all.
Don't message me if your jaw is permanently working on a piece of
gum; it's disgusting.
