Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in a small town near Cologne in West Germany, surrounded
by Cattle, Sheep, Chicken and our two family dogs. I guess I've had
a very protected and happy childhood which I mostly spent playing
with my friends in the forest, building huts and barrages, digging
caves and getting most of the bones in my body broken in the
As a 16 year old I spent a year abroad in a small town near Oakland
to visit high school. I totally fell in love with California and
frequently came back to visit ever since. I have been working in LA
for a couple of years now and somehow I still like that
I'm a practical, straightforward and down to earth person who likes
the simple and classic things in life. The kind of person who
favors a play at a theatre over a loud broadway show and who
prefers a simple glass of beer / wine over the most recent
lifestyle drink any day.
I enjoy routine and the feeling of getting things done. Mabye I'm
too serious at times. But I'm also open minded and constantly
looking out for ways of experiencing life to it's fullest through
sport, art, culture and interactions with interesting people.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Since my childhood I was fascinated by hospitals - maybe because
I've spent so much time in there. I remember watching every episode
of a dopey 80's German hospital show and my parents even bought me
a boardgame where you had to "operate" on a wooden puppet and
answer questions about medical conditions.
After finishing high school, I've studied medicine at Heidelberg
University and Oxford Medical School. I spent my residency in
different hospitals across south-west Germany and in Finland. Ever
since I was approved as a specialist for radiology I have worked
and lived as an assistant medical director in Switzerland.
Besides my job I regularly work out at the gym and go running. I've
finished 7 marathons by now - aiming for 10. I've also been a keen
handball player for over 15 years and I'm very disappointed by the
fact that Americans don't seem to appreciate this great sport
Since you also don't seem to "get" what kind of handball I am
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
That's for others to evaluate.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a calm and considerate person who doesn't try too hard to be
the center of attention. Rather than being noticed myself, I like
to watch others. People often say that I'm a good listener.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I adore classical / romantic German literature, especially Goethe,
Schiller, Herder, Wieland, Schlegel, Hoffmann and von
Concerning romanticism: waiting to see a profile which doesn't
answer the question:
" To you, which adjective best describes hopeless,
with foolish instead of romantic. To me, that's the very definition
of a romantic situation.
Of the more contemporary authors I admire for example Nabokov,
Kafka, Thomas Mann, Safran Foer, Roth and Jonathan Franzen.
My current playlist includes Elvis Costello, PJ Harvey, Muse,
Tocotronic, Wilco, Fiona Apple, Yann Tiersen and a lot of Schubert
I like all kinds of food, but I love traditional German and
Japanese cuisine. I also love cooking but I don't really have the
time or the energy to do it on a daily basis. Cooking and
celebrating meals together with a bunch of good friends is one of
my favourite activities though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My job, my family (especially my two little sisters), Sport, long
conversations with beautiful women late at night at romantic street
cafés, Music (mostly folk, alternative rock and classical music - I
play the piano), reading the newspaper at the breakfast table
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Deep, philosophical questions... Hey, I'm German after all.
At the end of a week of double shifts and working over time I
usually think about turning on the TV and falling asleep while
watching a stupid game show though...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working or at the bar. Socializing with the west
finest radiology team, one way or another...
Generally speaking, I'm quite eclectic in my taste of
but my ideal friday night starts at a lounge-type place or a
smaller bar / club, prefarably with live music, spoken word
and ends at an awesome dance location. Well, it doesn't have to
there of course... ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look great in Lederhosen!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are capable of having a date with a German guy without
bringing up either the war or Hitler :)
On a more serious note: I'm not reluctant to having a long
relationship or getting married, but I'm also not especially
looking for it right now. If it happens - perfect! But I'm
desperate. If you have the same attitude that would be great.
Also message me if you just want to do something together.
