My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Another year, another rewrite :-) I think I know myself pretty well by now, but this is still hard..

I can honestly say that I'm an honest person. I'm fairly intelligent. Not that it has done me much good, I've had to work hard to teach my brain to shut up. I'm sensitive, which I like being even though it's scary sometimes. Because of that, I've had to learn how to be brave when meeting new people. I've even worked with sick people and drunk people, in weird and sometimes threatening situations and I've gradually learned not to take things personally. But honestly, I'm still a little shy :-) I'm a genuinely caring person, I know it sounds like something you would say to get girls, but it's true. I feel strongly for the people I meet and I strive to understand why people think and act the way they do. I also do that because I'm genuinely curious about the world and the people in it. I can lose myself for hours in an encyclopedia, or in a fascinating person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working part time as a taxi driver while writing my thesis in cognitive science. Actually, the job is mostly medical transport, and the thesis is more like linguistics coupled with epistemology :-)

I'm in a choir. I never listen to that kind of music, but it's fun and challenging trying to get it right together with another 30 people.

I work out a couple of times a week. I stopped for a while but I'm very happy to be getting back into shape now.

I used to do kundalini yoga and I've been meaning to come back to it, it made a big difference in my life and I miss it.

I also used to be involved with roller derby, but that didn't really work out. Great sport though, if you have enough time for practice and enough energy for all the drama.

I'm happy to try new things, I've taken a few evening classes in different areas but nothing that stuck.

I'd like to spend more time learning languages, it's fun and comes easy to me.

Other than that, I like to cook and spend time with friends, preferably at the same time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Figuring out what motivates people. Massages. Cooking. Solving problems. Hugs. No, really.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
One person called me "unexpectedly intense". When I asked what that meant, she said that I came across as quite shy at first but then there was like an explosion of congeniality. Other than that, I'm guessing, that I can't hide my feelings for shit :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: I like spicy food, Indian and Ethiopian are long time favourites. Italian is really nice as well. Right now I'm really curious about North African cuisine, it seems to marry general Mediterranean-ness with eastern spices - best of both worlds. I think it's morally right to be a vegetarian, but..well I'm not. I eat meat but I really hate how animals are treated. I'd like to find a way to resolve that.

Movies: Right now I'm into Jim Jarmusch's films. I really like films that change my world, make think somehow, which generally means independent films. A couple of favorites with really generic names are Broken (2012) and Heaven (2002). I love A Clockwork Orange, Pan's Labyrinth, Lost in Translation and The Wicker Man (the original, obviously). La Haine, La vita è Bella, Only Lovers Left Alive. Pretty much all the Studio Ghibli films. All this doesn't mean I can't enjoy a stupid disaster movie or whatever, but they rarely change your outlook on life :-)

TV shows: British Comedies, cooking shows and The Walking Dead - that's pretty much it. Python, Green Wing, Black Books, IT Crowd and The League of Gentlemen in the first category. Fawlty Towers still makes me laugh like nothing else. Cooking Shows: The original British Kitchen Nightmares, Master Chef Australia, Good Eats. And The Walking Dead. Oh, oh, and Grand Designs, I love it!! I want to be like Kevin when I grow up.

I love to read when I find the time to do it, I really want to give it more space in my life. Right now I'm reading Stephen King again, even though I never intended to like him :-) Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams obviously. Good science fiction. History is fascinating, as novels or biographies or factual books. Possibly fantasy if it's not too..ridiculous. I guess magical realism is more my thing. I think the theme here is escape from reality. It bites.

Music: Yes please. I listen to all genres except country music, but according to some of my friends, even that doesn't always suck. I particularly like EBM, black metal and folk music. And reggae. And jazz if it's not too weird. I know, this doesn't make any sense. It just totally depends on my mood. If music is food for the soul, I guess I'm just really hungry. And crave variation. And maybe I'm easily bored..
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hugs. Really.

Honesty. I need to be feel that I can trust the people in my life.

At first I put down "challenges" and "growth" as two different items, but I think I'll just combine them into "change". There is this Woody Allen quote; " A relationship is like a shark, it has to move forward or it dies". I think the same thing can be said about life, I don't feel alive unless I move forward, evolve in some way.

Someone to talk to.

Love I guess, but it's such a ridiculously cliché thing to say, especially on a dating site. But speaking of things that make you feel alive, love usually does the trick.

Someone to have fun with. You can't really overestimate how important a sense of humor is.

Porn. Sorry, I ran out of things to say and I wanted to see if you have a sense of humor :P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Funny words. What makes people tick. Stupid puns.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a nice meal and watching a movie. I work long hours Fridays so I'm happy to stay in, but I'd love to find someone to stay in with. I'm honestly not much for clubbing, once in a while it can be fun but I prefer someplace where I can actually talk to people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I fantasise about being a writer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
..I make sense to you. Hopefully you're also open-minded and share basic values with me. Same thing really :-)

I'm generally happy to talk to new people. If it says I rarely answer, it's because I for some reason get a lot of messages from people who I have nothing in common with. People with 30% match, who yell at me for thinking that women and gay people deserve respect (true story). Needless to say, I won't answer messages like that.

It's hard to find anybody who makes sense on a deeper level, it's hard to find somebody with the same weird sense of humor, whom you also find attractive. If you think there's any possibility I might be such a person, it would be a shame not to give it a chance, no?
