I'm an old soul, always been more mature, responsible and
contemplative for my age. And yet, I can also be quite playful, and
like to nerd out on occasion. For the most part, I don't take life
too seriously, taking pleasure in whatever I can find. I am
generally very sociable, and can get along with just about anyone;
but I only have a few close friends, and very few things in life,
in my mind, beats a good evening out with them. In addition, I am
very partial to snuggling up on my couch with some tv or a good
book. I also enjoy exercise, going to the gym regularly, running,
playing sports and doing martial arts.
What I’m doing with my life
Sometimes university lecturer. Sometimes babysitter. Depends on the
day. Depends on the students.

Procrastinating. I'm trying to be less good at it, to a varying
degree of success.

I can't swim. I also don't like to swim, but that may be a product
of the former condition.

You are independent, intelligent, compassionate and have a sense of
I also like to be challenged. Someone who can engage with me
intellectually is very attractive to me. It's not that I enjoy
debating per se, and I can certainly admit when I'm wrong about
something, but I find that a stimulating conversation about
anything (or even nothing) is a good way to connect.
