My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not looking for anything, sorry. I found fursa_saida and she's the best human on the planet.

I'm Ben. I like drawing and painting, cooking (especially cakes), playing the guitar, playing the bass and writing songs. Here's my Soundcloud account, where I sometimes upload covers and original songs:
I'm not great at singing but I really enjoy it.

I love languages; I work for Nintendo, translating videogames from Japanese to English.

I play Magic: The Gathering semi-seriously. Recently I've been travelling to tournaments around Europe: Vienna, Warsaw and Milan so far this year and Strasbourg in November.

I really like to stay healthy and go to the gym as often as I can. I try to eat healthy most of the time but I don't stress out or feel guilty about the occasional Friday night burger or brunch blowout on a Sunday.

I do a lot of improv comedy, which is something I NEVER thought I would be writing. I took it up just after getting to Germany and holy cow it is the most fun ever. I recently joined a team so I've been training with them a lot and I will be going on stage with them to do monthly shows, starting sometime next year.

I put 'Judaism' under religion because I was brought up in a Jewish family and I identify as Jewish in many ways. However, I'm 'laughing about it' because I'm pretty much as atheist as they come.

I don't have a sense of smell.

By the way, if you want to know a bit more about me, I recommend checking out my question answers. I quite often add a paragraph explaining my answers and I think it does a pretty good job of letting people know a little bit about myself and my outlook on life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the beginning of 2009 I wrote this on my OK Cupid profile: 'I'm a firm believer in going out and making yourself the happiest you can be. I've decided that 2009 is going to be the year I look back on and say "That's where it all changed". I don't know why, or how, or when, but exciting things are going to happen this year. If they don't, then I'll go out and damn well make them happen.'

Well, 2009 was the year everything changed. I moved to Japan. I thought I would be there for 3 months and I was there for 4 years and 9 months. I scarcely recognise the person I was when I first wrote this profile. I've had a lot of adventures and a lot of experiences. Last year I read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho and it changed my life. Perhaps that's a bit of a cliche, but it made me realise that I'd strayed a little from how I imagined my life would turn out. So I quit my job and since January this year I've been working at a large videogame company translating games from Japanese to English. I'm really enjoying it so far.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing, though I've wanted to get better for a long time. Now I've finally started to learn how to paint digitally maybe I can actually get on with that!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my ridiculous eyebrows or my gingery beard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I really like Haruki Murakami, especially the Wind-up Bird Chronicle. I have read all the Song of Ice and Fire books so far and enjoyed them very much.

I'm not really a movie buff so if you have some favourite films please tell me what I should watch! Recently I saw "Begin Again" and loved it.

Keep your '100 Best TV Celebrity Crib Reality Lists of 1978' and give me: Peep Show, Darkplace, The Day Today, Spaced, Arrested Development, The Office, The Office (American version), Never Mind the Buzzcocks, Harry Hill's TV Burp, Lost and QI. Recently I've been watching How I Met Your Mother, Parks and Recreation and Doctor Who.

Music is something I'm passionate about. My favourite artists at the moment are Mae, The Reign of Kindo, Jason Mraz, John Mayer, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, The Gaslight Anthem and The Weeknd .

Food-wise, I am a man of simple tastes, possibly because of the no sense of smell thing. I like cheese, meat and vegetables. I have an extremely sweet tooth and love cakes and pies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Incredible, brilliant and passionate people around me to give me something to aspire to.

A cold foot against my leg, someone caring enough about me to want to take a little of my warmth for their own.

A pencil and a piece of paper within easy reach.

The heartbreaking beauty found in the perfect chord change.

A world beyond my front door.

An uncomplicated, innocent and unbearable excitement at the sheer intense, incomparable joy of living.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I have an imagination like a constantly exploding firework. I think about the strangest things.

I do spend a lot of time thinking about Feminism. I'm still learning about it, but I am a fierce opponent of misogyny and rape culture, and of course transphobia and racism as well. 'My feminism shall be intersectional or it shall be bullshit.'

I'm currently writing a story based on my time in Japan and the wonderful people I met there. It's not a 'novel' yet, but I hope it will be someday.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to make 'fetch' happen. Failing that, probably having a nice cocktail somewhere or staying at home and indulging one of my many passions. I don't tend to sleep much at the weekend so Friday night always lasts well into Saturday morning.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cried at the movie Bridges of Madison County.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over. think we could have an interesting conversation at the very least.

If I had to describe my ideal woman in five words, they would be:
- Geeky (by which I mean someone who revels in the power of imagination, both their own and others', and who surrounds themselves with things they are passionate about)
- Silly (by which I mean someone who does not take life too seriously and who takes pleasure in the unexpected)
- Artsy (by which I mean someone who seeks out opportunities to express themselves through creation)
- Sexual (by which I mean someone who is comfortable with sexuality and able to discuss sex frankly and honestly)
- Fierce (by which I mean someone who knows exactly what they want and who will fight tooth and claw for the things they believe in)
Bonus points: tattooed, hard drinking, kinky, enjoys working out, and last but by no means least plays Magic or at least has an interest in learning to play casually. It's fun, I promise!

I have a lot going on in my life at the moment and I'm mostly looking for interesting new friends who are living in and around Frankfurt. However, if you think you match what I wrote above, then I'm open to more.

I respond well to 'would you rather?' questions if they're good ones.
