My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a professor in the US, working in Berlin for at least one year, possibly longer. I've lived in Berlin before, so I know my way around, though my German is pretty weak. My German friends find my attempts to speak German highly amusing, so you might too.

I'm definitely the dorky academic type. I enjoy a good zombie film, road trips, divey restaurants, book stores, great conversations. I'm a cross between a hopeless romantic and a pragmatic pessimist with a hard exterior. I attribute my hard exterior to the 10 years I lived in NYC. :)

I'm looking to meet someone around my age (give or take 10 yrs?) who is independent, interesting, confident, thinks for himself, and is doing something with his life. Someone clear, honest, communicative, and has his shit together. I have a hard time connecting with people who are unfocused/scattered/unable to follow through.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Teaching, learning, writing...oh and cooking. I can cook a mean Morgh e-Torsh! (google it). No really, I'm an awesome cook.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing obscure and dense prose that nobody will ever read in order to get tenure.

I'm good at listening.

Procrastinating. Wanna go to a museum?
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Maybe my lips. My big semitic Arab nose (meine große Nase) :). I dunno.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Toni Morrison, James Baldwin, Jean Toomer, Melville, Balzac, Achebe, Edward Said, and good ole Fredric Jameson. Then there are the Arab writers, but you've never heard of them. :)

Music: Anything from soul/R&B to classical (Schubert, Beethoven, Prokofiev). I grew up in Detroit, so I am loyal to Aretha Franklin (and others from Motown). I like bad Arabic pop and classics like Fayrouz. I think Broadway musicals are awful--trite, cliched nonsense. Yes, I'm a bad gay, and proudly so. If you're obsessed with Broadway theater, don't message me. I'll want to punch you if we meet and you sing Broadway show tunes.

Food: Arabic, Persian, Thai, Vietnamese, Ethiopian. Did I mention I'm a good cook?

Movies: Horror, Foreign, Indie, and the occasional Hollywood blockbuster. I love Iranian cinema, Almodovar, and political documentaries about how fucked up capitalism is.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
tbd
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How shit's messed up yo!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends.
