My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Why am I here? I'm so busy I wonder how I would fit someone into my life. That said, I've always been busy, and when 'that' person comes along...everything else fades in importance. My big problem is I'm interested in all kinds of stuff...I've not lost my sense of wonder. Some more stuff below...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living in Switzerland and enjoying it very much. I'm an engineer working in a rather obscure & specialized area of high voltage engineering. It's varied and it takes me all over the world, which I like.
When I'm not doing that: TONS OF OTHER STUFF. My life is pretty full but I often miss sharing it with someone which is why I'm here..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singapore noodles, lamb saag, finding difficult Messier objects, listening, writing, talking, chopping kindling, helping friends, figuring things out, fixing stuff...and creating an atmosphere.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm tall, approachable, I engage people, I'm enthusiastic & observant. Sometimes I'm very outgoing, but from personality type I'm an introvert. Most people guess I'm much younger than I am. And I'm more of an aesthete and more of a romantic than most engineers (at least male engineers :-p ).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
After having neglected reading *books* during recent years, now I'm making time for it. Recent faves: The Unwinding (shudder..), Tom Wolfe's I Am Charlotte Simmons, William Boyd's Restless & Any Human Heart, Jonathan Franzen's Freedom, February by Lisa Moore, Sabine Bode's Kriegsenkel (& -Kinder). I like History (e.g. Antony Beevor) and lots of other stuff. So many things to read, so little time...

Movies: I really love film but haven't been getting out enough. Just saw Fury (which I superb, despite the parts which have garnered the poor reviews), Imitation Game, haven't seen the latest LOR flicks (but I liked them till now). I liked: Django, Cloud Atlas, We Need to Talk About Kevin...Mommy (gives your French a run fer sure) An Education, The Reader, The Hours, Atonement, Snatch, Heist, The Departed, Mystic River*, Bienvenue Chez Les Ch'tis, Jason Bourne, Koyaanisqatsi/Powaqqatsi, 2001, Pale Rider (pretty much anything Clint did except the stupid comedies), La meglio gioventù, Lawrence, Passage to India, Merchant Ivory...etc oh dear I have gone on a bit

Music: oh that's a big one...U2 (older), Peter Gabriel, Neil Young, June Tabor, Altan, Mary Chapin Carpenter (a goddess..), Dylan, Joni, Emmylou, Santanna, Royksopp, The Knife, Talvin Singh, Eno, Michael Brecker, Joshua & Dewey Redman, Marcus Miller, Miles, Charles Lloyd, Coltrane, Monk...Melissa Etheridge, Sarah McLaughlin, Pumpkins, Roddy Womble, Patti Smith, Richard (and Linda) Thompson, Eddie Vedder, Bach, Brahms, Biber, Sibelius, Chopin, Vivaldi, Verdi, Youssou N'Dour, Tiken Jah Fakoly, Toure Kunda, Ismael much music, so little time...I like live concerts, but don't get out enough. Saw Elton in Dec 2014, laugh if you want but one of the best shows I ever saw, he rocks. So: 'eclectic'

Food: spicy Asian, pancakes, biscuits, fresh bread (= stuff I like to make), 'country' Italian & French, grilling fish on a wood fire, fondue & raclette, omelettes aux truffes, white chocolate (but only the good one from Aldi)...and for me good food includes good wine! :-)

wow I wrote a lot...left out 'Art' & 'Cities' like Beyeler, Hamburger Bahnhof, d'Orsay, MFA/ICA Boston...ok i stop
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My amazing great friends, mobile phone, Swiss army knife, music, The Economist, glasses (incl sun)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
a lot of stuff...sorry, that's the way it is :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging & cooking with/for friends, playing Scrabble, Uno, dominoes, or backgammon, discussing Gott & die Welt...if it's clear, going out with my telescope :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...even though most of my friends wouldn't believe it, that I'm actually pretty shy at times, that be the 'introvert' part :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're real and down-to-earth and still haven't lost your sense of wonder. Affectionate helps :-)
Alora: recently I've seen some really great 'statements' from y'all Ladies, so in response: I never set out to 'have a family'. Was close once, but I'm about 99% sure I don't want to start making babies now. But if we match, and you've already got a child...well....I believe in the transformative power of love. I have seen a lot..and I have many friends whose kids delight me.
Alora2: I find some of the OKC questions stupid, obnoxious, useless, too precise/narrow, or two wide-open and not worth answering. OKC questions like "How would you feel if your partner's sister showed up with a video camera and wants to film you doing it with her gay chimpanzee in the town fountain' - I tend not to answer...
