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 :-)
