Although I've studied physics and am kind of a science and computer geek, I do have a lot of other interests and sometimes a hard time prioritizing work over leisure activities.
I love travelling. I've been studying in Boston, USA, for a year, and spent 3 months in Latin America, to visit friends and learn Spanish, diving and some Salsa dancing.
When visiting other countries, I prefer getting to know locals, either through friends or via couchsurfing, and travelling with a backpack and maybe even hiking and camping, instead of staying at hotels or booking an all inclusive club vacation.
I like to listen to music, and to play or sing myself. I also tried arranging/composing myself and really enjoyed that, although I'm probably rubbish at it.
I prefer cats to dogs, but always wanted a squirrel as a pet, which recently became reality - I'm coddling up several squirrel foundlings, and they are SO cute. It means feeding them every 3-4 hours, also at night... but it's totally worth it.
I am a militant non-smoker, prefer watching movies in the original version, if I understand the language, sometimes I like to be surprised by going to sneak previews. I'm not doing enough sports, but would like to change that, if I found something that catches my interest or someone to help me fight my inner couch potato. At least the sports I do or did include somewhat fancy things like scuba diving or formation ballroom dance.
What I don't like: People who think they already know everything, prejudices, egocentrics, egoists, machos.
I like honest, open-minded and tolerant people. They should be just. Good listeners. Generous. Helping others without expecting anything in return. Uncomplicated. Believing in the good in people (Individuals. In bigger groups, people tend to emphasize their worst habits). Not afraid of admitting an error. Friends that can be trusted and relied upon. I like it if someone takes the extra time and effort (or rather, if it is no extra effort for them) to get little things right, like correct spelling on the net, including foreign names etc. :-) If you can play an instrument or like to sing, can make people laugh, have interesting stories to tell, share some interests with me, can teach me something interesting, I'd like to get to know you. Or if you're really good in bed :-))
