Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Dream with feet on the ground (well ... I try hard :-) Critical
nonconformist spirit. Words are easy, facts count. Life is a game,
take it easy but play serious. Laugh, especially about myself.
Straightforward whenever possible. Consequent with own ideas and
curious about other's: there is always a new angle. Brains are
sexy. Carpe Diem. If there is a problem: sleep over it, the next
day it looks different.
Personal and professional background: German nationality, changed
regions and cultures several times, then moved to Andalusia (Spain)
27 years ago. Working in an international organisation, moving a
lot around Europe and also Central/South America where I may end up
sooner or later. Multi-cultural mentality and background is a must
for me in life and in a relation.
Partnership (or whatever we are looking for at OKC): "Loyal
complicity" as core term - joining independences because it's more
fun together while it lasts. Looks, attraction, sex, education,
interests are like a multiplication: the more of each, the better,
and none of them must be "0". Virtual communication for a start
(OKC Qs are fascinating to find out previously about each other),
but only real "chemistry" matters in the end: whatever we say in
written, at the end of the day, only meeting people tells you who
they are and if you might match. Attraction at first sight: yes -
the important is not how long it lasts, but that it shall be
memorable. Summary: a realistic romantic :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Made a job out of my hobby (or viceversa), with a lot of travel all
over Europe and South America, defining practical actions around my
goals and dreams. Freelance that managed to never be an employee -
like a country mouse: not rich but free. Open for any new area or
activity, in the past I did about everything from academic work to
brick laying. And it seems there is a lot of time left: according
to OKC tests my "real" age is only 38 :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being Mephisto: my favourite! Critical character to whatever comes
up, provoke discussion and "check" on supposed truth. Good at
reducing complexity of things, and to structure situations. Be
curious about whatever's around me. Procrastination is my
speciality. And from time to time, I am pretty good at doing

They SEE me with 188 cms / 6' 2" :-) Open-going, at the same with
with a controlled and "reserved" touch. Definitively NOT a
"carnaval" type of person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Woody Allen and similar. Or the "classics". Bottom line:
there must be something to think about, then is all the same if
action, romantic, science fiction, horror, drama, ...
Shows: forget it - I prefer real things
Music: very very varied - anything from classic to "house" or
"dance" to chansons to Gregorianic chants. But pleeeease: somehow
melodic. Little chance for Free Jazz, Reggae, or Rap.
Food: the more exotic and un-known, the better. Basic rule: "if
locals eat it and do not die of it - give it a try"
Books: not too much my matter - if any, then a bit brain-demanding
such as Kafka or (more recent) "Las Teorías Salvajes" by Pola
Oloixarac. Or non-fiction. Neruda and similar are deal breakers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) you (if you are my match)
2) a mental or intellectual challenge
4) freedom of mind
5) good food and drink (red wine !!!)
6) Wikipedia (and by logic, internet)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* our match is above 9x % - just for finding out if this
calculation is somehow valid apart from having virtual fun with
* you like anything you've read here. I take OKC as an
entertainment site with attached dating: contacting "just for fun"
- otherwise we'll never meet new or interesting people. It's like
lottery - unlikely you will ever win, but you need to play to have
a chance for it.
* or if you would like to comment - there's a lot for this in my

interesting if you DISagree (best friendships arise after serious
