Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Before i start, let me apologize for my nickname, was chosen one of
those Shanghainese mornings when my skull was three sizes smaller
than my brain. As we say in my home town: if you spend the night
living like an artist, you will wake up feeling like a clown.
Yes, i'm a proud Shanghailander born and raised in Barcelona.
I had a very comfortable life in Barcelona, money in my pocket,
plenty of time for myself, great friends and cool jobs but i was
bored to death, so i decided to reinvent myself and my life big
time. I had only one thing crystal clear in my mind: Fortune favors
So, on January 30th 2005, 15:30 local time, i arrived to Shanghai.
No job, no friends, no word of chinese, no place to stay, just me
and a suitcase, the rest is just history in the making, my
adventures and misadventures in Shanghai will definitely deserve
and need more than one chapter in my memoirs. I've seen things you
people wouldn't believe...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Well, i quit two months ago my job, as a personal concierge for
filthy rich tourists, working for the best inbound luxury travel
agency in the country.
After 382 flights and aproximately 635000 kilometers (395000 miles
if you don't use metric system) within China in the last six years
i've decided i had enough.
Was "married" to my job being on the road nine out of twelve months
a year. I did enjoy my job and career but the personal price i was
paying was too high, almost impossible to meet someone when you are
So i decided to quit the job, the glamour and my successful career,
get out of my comfort zone and reinvent myself and my life
I recently started my own project/company of specialized History
& Architecture tours in Shanghai. Now not only i'm my own boss
but also i'm making a living through my passion and the things i
love, which makes me a very happy and lucky guy i must say!
Now that i have my life back i want to share it with someone
because some roads aren't meant to be travelled alone.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sarcasm. Dispensing fairly reasonable advise. Horizontal
activities. Following my instincts. Making and keeping amazing
friends. Reading on a beach under a palm tree. Hosting dinner
parties. Cooking mediterranean food. Spoiling my niece whenever i
go back to Barcelona. Riding aimlessly my bike through Shanghai's
French Concession old lanes. Making and finding new excuses to not
work out. Cursing in chinese. Making a wide variety of mean drinks
and cocktails. Drinking them afterwards. Making people feel
comfortable. Giving nicknames. Classic western mythology.
Assembling Ikea furniture. Inane pop trivia culture. Zombie mayhem
survival skills. Giving hugs. Petting cats. Having mystical
revelations in the shower. Not taking any shit from no one.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My personality, it is so magnetic i am unable to carry credit
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm an avid reader, from comic books to philosophy and everything
Cinema is one of my great passions in life. I can't live without
watching movies. I'm kind of proud of my top shelf collection
acquired during all this years in Shanghai. The list would be so
ridiculously long that makes no sense to start writing it.
It gets easier with tv shows, i like to spend my days and nights
with the boys: Patrick Jane, Hank Moody, Don Draper, Sheldon
Cooper, Raylan Givens, Sterling Archer and Peter Griffin.
About music, my range of interest is wide enough, techno, punk,
rock, but i like any group that can pull off a great life
performance, not assembly line studio groups.
And food, oh, i'm a foodie and i love it. To eat good food is a
vital and moral obligation i have with myself.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My passport: In China you need it for everything.
My queen size bed: I spend a 1/3 of my life in it.
My friends: When you're living 11000 km from home they become your
family and safety net.
Sarcasm & Sense of humor: I wouldn't had last all these years
in China without them.
My Iphone: yup, can't live/work without him.
My bike: She takes me wherever i want to go.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I live in Shanghai, surrounded 24/7 by 25 millions of chinese,
there is no typical day in my life.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Being the only boy in a family full of women i learned first hand
about the sincrony of menstrual period among women living together,
it is not a urban legend! Learned that once a month i had to tip
toe and be extra careful about what to say and what to do for my
own safety, that's why whenever i've been in a relationship i
always knew better than my partners when it was that time of the
month... Pure survival instinct!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think you have what it takes to deal and handle someone like
me, it won't be easy, but i'll make it worth.
P. S. If we don't have at least 70/80% match & friend please
don't contact me. If i want to talk with someone without anything
in common between us i just have to go out and talk to one of the
25 million Shanghai inhabitants. Easier than here...
