My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I knew I shouldn't have kept this part till the last bit. I think I said most already below this "summary".

Maybe some character traits:
- I'm hardworking when it comes to my office work. I have no problem in working late or working really late, 'cause I know that there's not enough engineers to do all the work anyway, and that as long as our clients give us more work, it means they are happy with what we can do for them. So, hardworking. But not at home. I can leave the dishes a whole week (most of times, i run out of forks after 5-6 days and then I have to do it). I think that as long as I'm the only one who has to deal with my home, that's not going to change.

- I can get quite passionate and stubborn about some topics. Very very broad range of topics. It can be world politics, or whether to bake something in oil, butter or liquid butter (the last one is something that is never crossing my doorstep!).

- On the other hand, I really like to put things into perspective. I'm never ever going to say we live in a stupid country that does everything wrong. Absolutely not. Some people can't live through one day without criticizing their neighbours or the government (lack of speedbumps! too many speedbumps! children play too loudly! my outrageously big bonus is not outragelously big enough!). Take a few steps back and realize we live in one of the best places on the entire earth. Maybe not the prettiest of all places, but we have it better than 99% of the world. I mean, you're reading this. Think about how many people of your age can't even read, let alone read something on the internet.

- I'm very very very very very messy. Until I clean up and organize all my closets and drawers and stuff, then I'm not messy. For 36 hours.

- I tend to write texts that are way too long to be considered readable by modern standards. My opinion on this: deal with it. It's my text. Don't tell me how long it should be. I'm not giving in to the short-attention-span world.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a partner in a smallish office that deals with architecture, building engineering (structural and technical installations) and consulting (expertises, assessments, ...). I'm responsible for the design of the technical installations in buildings - an area that is in increasingly high demand and for which no specific training exists; which means a lot of work for a relatively small number of people. Besides my work, I'm an avid music amateur. I play guitar, saxophone and bass guitar, and I love to play different styles, ranging from jazz to metal (not much metal for saxophone though...). When the weather's good, I like to take my bicycle for a recreational ride.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- giving the impression that I'm good at playing music
- simplifying things. I'm an engineer, not a rocket scientist.
- giving the impression that I know something about whisky. I just like to share it and give a very very basic explanation on the difference between two bottles. It does not make me a "connaisseur".
- making awkward first impressions. But I live by a "if you can only judge one impression, you're not even worthy of my attention"-rule, so I'm absolutely not bothered by it.
- filling out these summary things, apparently. 'Cause I feel like I'm on a roll right now.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physical:
- get some exercise
- those blue eyes are really blue
- that forehead must have it's own area code

Other, depending on how I acted:
- arrogant little bastard
- doesn't really say much, does he?
- He's really outspoken, is he? *
- You really look like your father (friends of father)
- You really look like your mother (friends of mother)

* My best friend once explained:
If a stranger meets me for the first time on (for example) a party, there's usually three scenarios:
- I'm generally nice towards the stranger
- I leave him/her well alone
- I get into discussions, or pull his/her leg a bit, make remarks.
Despite the third option being the least favourable for most party guests, it's actually the best option. The second one (me ignoring) is actually by far the worst, because it means I'm not at all interested in him/her and that will probably not change.

It's probably exaggerated, but I think he's at least a bit right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I recently (finally) read the first part of the Millennium trilogy by Stieg Larsson. Finished the 560 pages in one day. Books 2 and 3 are on the reservation list in the library.

Movies: there's so many... Toy Story 3 for a good tearjerker. And I really like Christopher Nolan's work (Inception), as well as Leonardo DiCaprio's recent movie choices (Shutter Island, for example).

Series: probably half of the HBO list: Deadwood, Game of Thrones, Sopranos, Dexter, Carnivale, ... Then there's Twin Peaks, Battlestar Galactica, My Name Is Earl, Tremé, The Wire, ... I'm missing quite a lot, I'm sure.
Something I can create quite a fuss about: how "Lost" generated such high expectations during the first 1.5 seasons and then detoriated into the most intelligence-insulting crap that has ever been shown on screen.

Music: aaaaah, way too much. But I grew up on a diet of Nirvana & Metallica, got into Pink Floyd later on and now I listen to about everything that is not rap, r&b, or anything too "techno". Recent albums/artists I had the pleasure of discovering: Rumer, Melody Gardot, Mark Lanegan & Isobel Campbell, Steel Panther, ...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- Food/drink
- Music, if it needs to be one concrete thing: a guitar (with unbreakable strings and unlimited supply of picks)
- Writing material
- Love & friendship
- My mind.
- Something small and practically useless to play and tinker with. Lately I have a spintop on my office desk. Sometimes i give it a good twist and then it just stands there, twisting and turning for over a minute. Absolutely nothing remarkable or practical about it. Not really fun or entertaining too. But I would miss it if it were gone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Planning. But it never works.
- Why on earth "a career in media" is considered to be a better life choice than a career in engineering.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
if not working late (it happens. understaffed. and friday nights are perfectly quiet in an office environment, so surprisingly productive):
- out with friends (movie, football match, dinner, ...)
- just with friends (homemade dinner, boardgame or poker, ...)
- in a bar with coworkers (usually after a busy week)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Can't really think of anything. And anyway, I'm quite sure that whatever it is that I would want to admit, it's absolutely not that shocking. Which of course does not mean there's nothing to tell. Just not here.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you would like to get to know me, of course.

If you're looking for a long-term relationship: I know it's not on my "looking for", but don't let that stop you. It's just my way of saying I like to take things sloooooooooow. Very slow. As a matter of fact, I have never loved a girl/woman who I wasn't friends with before. "Love on first sight" is not in my dictionary. "Love out of friendship" is.

Which means I don't go out on "dates" to see if someone is a potential lover/mate. I just can't bring myself to "deciding" whether or not I love someone after only 10-20 hours of getting to know one another. And that probably has got a lot to do with why I'm single ;-).
