I'm a shy and introverted man from Norway, I have a severe social anxiety disorder and PTSD. When It comes to this, I'd like to be abundantly clear that this is something I refuse to be ashamed of, so I hope this will be sufficient to repel the potential bigots out there.
I am in no sense a push over though, I demand respect and I give it back in great abundance. Reciprocity is a principle i practice in absolute terms, I would under no circumstances assert dominance over someone or submit to a position of inferiority. Moreover I am incredibly polite, relatively unbiased sources have characterised me as sympathetic and fair. I take pride in my integrity and I have a well articulated sense of what is right and what is wrong.
Due to my severe wasp and bee allergies, I loathe the summers, but I love the winters and autumn.
That said, in the spare time I make closet music at home. None of my musician friends are particularly fund of collaborating musically in any worthwhile extent, so while it is in no way a prerequisite, finding a partner that is skilled at playing an instrument would be a bonus as that is a very rewarding intellectual pursuit.
However, I do spend most of my time at the University in Oslo where I study History, as a minor I take The history of ideas which moderately satisfies my philosophical interest.
I regard myself as a bit conservative when it comes to relationships, I don't approve of polygamy or one night stands. It's not that I think any less of people who tend to be liberal in that regard, I don't, It's just that we wont be compatible. I am extremely loyal, and I expect the same trust in return. Some say that makes me extremely patronising, an accusation I remain indifferent towards.
I'm looking for someone that can connect with me, someone who is capable of having a platonic conversation, someone who is kind and patient and thoughtful, someone willing to commit for life. I don't really mind where you are from, I like to think I can get along with everyone, and being different is something I regard as a positive trait. I am first and foremost attracted to your personality, your achievements or lack of, while certainly important in their own regard, does not influence my romantic estimation of a person, besides it is a poor indicator of a persons integrity or dignity. Intelligence is a non-romantic prerequisite for a relationship as far as I'm concerned, vulgar bigotry, wilful ignorance and vanity are characterises whom I am severely allergic towards.
Politically I swing left, but not all the way. You may interpret this how you wish, or even better, ask me;) But certain keywords would help: equality of sexes and equality of opportunity. Which roughly translates to distributive justice and feminism.
I've lived all my life in Norway, but when it comes to communication my mastery of the English language is far better than Norwegian as it is the language I think and dream in. How this happened, I am not certain, but I regard it as a strength, albeit an oddity.
