Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
As if I could summarize 'myself' in a handful of lines of text! I
consider it illogical to be asked to summarize that which is still
ongoing. If I get enough requests (or the urge otherwise prompts
me), I may write the requisite biographical book (but summarization
would still have to wait). It appears that some people have
insufficient tolerance for ambiguity...
Comme si je pourrais récapituler 'moi-même'; dans une poignée de
lignes de texte! Je le considère illogique pour être invité à
récapituler cela ce qui est encore continu. Si j'obtiens assez de
demandes (ou le recommander m'incite autrement), je peux écrire le
livre biographique requis (mais récapitulation devrait encore
attendre). Il s'avère que certains ont la tolérance insuffisante
(avec l'aide de 'BabelFish')

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I tend to do things in cycles....
I've owned my own business(es). I can touch my nose with my tongue,
and even put my feet behind my head. I've travelled to a number of
countries, and visited many of the places that my ancestors are
known to have come from.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
It has been indicated that I have travelled to more countries than
the average person, and read considerably more, but this is all
relative. When I was younger, I used computers quite a bit compared
to the average person, but then quite a few other people decided to
I've found that survivability can be enhanced by allowing others to
provide qualitative ratings.
I've managed to graduate from a university with a degree in
Engineering, which I found challenging, frustrating, and sometimes
aggravating ('specially the parts which I had experience with in
advance!); I didn't always agree with their methodology, pace,
scope or judgement, however (I'm not sure that I recommend the
Some people appear to think that an ability to travel in/to
multiple countries is unusual... perhaps living in a foreign
country for a few years as a youth (and studying french later)
assisted me in that?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm... I used to read many more books before the internet provided
me with apparently nearly endless supplies of reading material.
Then: Science Fiction (Zelazny, Orson Scott Card, Asimov, ...),
later Science Fact. These days, I prefer to stick with animated
movies, educational films, and documentaries. Foods? including
Thai, Indian / Nepali, French, Vietnamese, Chinese (or a salad or
sub sandwich can do it for me as well). [I also appear to be
'lactose intolerant' (or at least it has tended to give me
indigestion, in later years, especially if I consume milk products
right before bedtime)].
I have also read a variant or two of the Kama Sutra as well as some
of the more popular works of Henry Miller (Tropic *, 'Rosy
Crucifixion', etc), though I have tended to skip around to the
parts that I found most interesting, and wouldn't say that I
necessarily agree with the philosophies of either...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I think I'd prefer people to send me a message either if:
A) the intent is for the purpose of mutually exploring common
interests / bonding (intended for those who are potentially:),
B) are interested in somehow getting together.
However, I think there are other possibilities, which could likely
be of mutual value; if you think you should send me a message, or
otherwise feel like it, you might as well.
