Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an American (yes, how boring) currently living in the
Netherlands and working in London, I commute about every week. I
just moved to Haarlem in the Netherlands - as a sort of resting
stop. Hopefully I'll be able to sort out a residency permit and
move to London full time before the end of the year.
I have been an ex-pat for nearly eight years now and love living
outside the US. At my last home, in Geneva I'd been active in rock
climbing, cycling, and mountaineering. Now in NL, I'm looking to
make friends and find new activities here.
I have a lot of freedom with my work so I have time to workout at
home in the mornings or evening and spend my weekends in the
mountain or doing anything else that sounds interesting.
I would be nice, though not necessary, to find a partner who is
also wanting physically active and interested to find common
activities. I do eat well and exercise as much as possible, I would
probably only get along well with someone who also takes care of
Having common interests, especially recreational, is always a great
foundation to build a partnership. Of course, there is also a need
to have strong physical attraction too. I need a partner who is
adventurous, open minded, curious and constantly needing to try new
things, both in and out of the bedroom. So I'm a nice and naughty
guy. Looking for the same in a partner ;) The naughtier, the better
- you really can't scare or surprise me....
I also enjoy travel to exotic places (and hopefully to climb
mountains in far-away places like Nepal), and many of the other
finer things in life, art, music, wine, food, and lively debate.
I've visited plus 50+ countries. Airport lounges and airplanes are
sometimes my second home.
By the way, my US home is in Austin, Texas, I visit there usually
twice a year. I have lived in Houston, Southern California,
Manhattan, Chicago, Riyadh, Bahrain, Geneva and now Netherlands -
the UK is next!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living abroad, letting the other mice run ever faster on the
treadmill of life, enjoying outdoor activities, exploring my
limits, and seeking a like-minded partner. I'm blessed in that
'work' is essentially a hobby for me now, I do what I want, when I
want how I want. Yes, I worked like a mad-man earlier in my career
to earn that, and now I'm enjoying it.
For the last 3 years or so I have been leaning toward Asia as being
the place for the next phase of my life. I've been to China 8 or 10
times for business (but could never live there), Singapore too many
times to count (absolutely could live there), love Hong Kong and I
spent 8 of the last 18 months in Thailand (great place to consider
as my next move). I've lived in US, the Middle East and Europe, so
perhaps the east is next for me!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Solving complex problems, making great tasting meals from leftovers
and random things in the kitchen, planning exotic trips, and
testing limits (both mine and my partner's).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that I typically don't care about what people notice. I live my
own life in my own way and don't seek the attention or approval of
others. My friends and family back in the US think that it's quite
abnormal that I don't own a car, a TV, or a microwave and that I
can quite easily move my limited amount of stuff via checked

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - all sorts of non-fiction, book on history, science,
physics, astronomy, mountain guidebooks.
Movies - ones that make you think. I haven't been very impressed
with movie lately, most are just 'fluff' entertainment. Last good
movie I that left an impression were Gravity, Insterstellar and the
Kingsmen unexpectedly quite entertaining.
Music - anything non-commercial, I've been away from music for 3 or
4 years, but I like creative, interesting things, not

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why women squeeze the toothpaste from the top.
An acceptable punishment for people who don't know the difference
between you're and your and there's and there are.
What country should I visit next?
The USD/CHF/EUR rate.
Sex. Sex. Sex.
What to write on the landing card as occupation.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home of course, why else would I be on a dating site?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've had a vasectomy.
I'm left-handed but can't use left-handed scissors.
You should message me if
