My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Rich, I'm originally from the UK.

I thought it's time to update my profile as I have been lazy on here.

So, I'm looking to meet confident, kind, outgoing people with shared values.

I would like to say I am a mixture of both creative, and logical thinking, which actually compliments each other. It works well if you are self employed. Although I like logic, I also like to hear about emotions too, and express myself clearly as a way to show my strengths. It's the only way to build deep connections that last a lifetime.

Just a warning my profile is long, to attract only the brave. It's not to show off, but to not let the right person pass by. I am always curious about those who see this site as a game of Russian roulette.

I take risks, but I won't waste anyone's time if they don't appreciate someone for who they really are.

I have a dry sense of humour with new people. But mostly enjoy fun and witty conversations. I love conceptual jokes with a twist of sarcasm whilst poking fun at social norms.

I feel I'm open minded with views of others and axiomatic and rational with my own. I believe I am pretty well read, personable, articulate and like to make my own decisions using several sources of information not one as I understand most institutes have their hidden biases. That and I don't take myself seriously.

So yes I am a critical thinker, it's the only way to survive in this day and age. Not only that, but it's the only way to live a fulfilling life.

I really appreciate others who use their wit to make others feel more confident and appreciated.

I'm looking for someone who is calm, creative and kind, who is ready to think confidently outside the box.

If I were to choose someone who was either kind or witty, I would choose the kind person every time. I'm very loyal and my friends will tell you that you won't find anyone more genuine. I sincerely hope not anyway.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I own my own consultancy firm in Shanghai, now run by someone else, I also freelance for publishers to help with business development.

I am traveling to what feels like almost every city in China for my job, but I will make time for the right person. If I make time for you, it means you are really special, as I crave stability and want to settle down.

I believe in continually challenging myself in what I believe. I have my core principles, (a word not used often anymore), but I am open to changes when presented with new empirical data. That means constantly learning new things.

Graduated from the school of Autodidacticism like all creative minds.
Working on using analogous reasoning where possible.
My hobbies include screen printing poorly and wasting too much ink and chemicals.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Building client charters.
Making people smile.
Making people laugh.
Making shy people feel confident.
Making people enjoy and not shy away from their intelligence, which is something most play down.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is that I'm awesome and kind to everyone.

Kindness, patience and empathy is not a weakness. I could go further into this but the right people will get it straight away.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In order of importance
1) Good friends
2) Interesting books.
3) A purpose and set goals outside of work.
4) Thoughtful and reflective silence. (For self knowledge and introspection.)
5) Several hundred news-feeds on one app (as I feel it's important to be informed.)
6) Morning coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

But mostly thinking about Voluntaryism, American history. What the premise of all human action is. How best to convey rational proofs of secular ethics to an increasingly pragmatic and uncaring world. Applying the Non Aggression Principle or NAP with regards to the utter failures of politics and statism.

Also logic, epistemology, European history, Austrian Economics, Business Cycle Theory, Agorism, Zeta issues, what to cook next and the various dance moves that I have not quite perfected.

I like to think about my next topic to write about, as I write for 2 major European mining companies in my spare time.

I am also currently writing my magnum opus on Negotiating with Children, The Average Don't Move, The Art of Engagement and Outside of Shanghai. This is based on well researched empiricism rather than someones opinion. Maybe ask me about it sometime.

How to use a priori reasoning to persuade others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Socialising, networking, or watching a film with some relaxing drinks and enjoying a fun conversation.

Sometimes I enjoy socialising with people too once I'm done anthropomorphising beverages.

Sometimes I spend it relaxing with a book as I'm a bit of a closet introvert. It depends on my mood.

If I'm really bored, Freyja (my poor excuse for a cat) and I like to stare at walls. (Updated she now lives in France).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am working on making the world a better place. But it's a multi generational process that starts with logic and peaceful parenting in the home instead of politics or protesting in the streets.

I enjoy both books and audio books, sometimes simultaneously to test our capability of learning. I respect formal education, but I appreciate that the greatest minds learned from outside this structure. Therefore, I believe in un-schooling methods as an alternative to private, public and homeschooling. This is for when I choose to have kids, which if I do will probably in my late 50's, sorry ladies, you will have to wait. Maybe sooner for the right person. If you know anything about Montessori educational methods please message me.

I enjoy reading about the history of the Gnostics, even from a secular point of view, which was the earliest form of Christianity before it became an institution for state power. Gnosticism is closer to Buddhism than the other forms of state religion we have today. But I am not religious, I enjoy my secular ethics too much.

Despite the display of bookwormery on my profile, I love ALL PEOPLE and can spend hours chatting about none of the above. I am also told I am great at listening and very patient.

I am always surrounded by a sea of interesting people, but not found the meaningful connection I want.

Philosophy and universalising principles is the fulcrum of which I revolve around.

I am also dyslexic and slow to trust people.

I get what I want and I work for it.

I am a philosophical anarchist.

So now you know more about me than some of my closest friends. Have fun thinking up an original message. You don't have to find any of this stuff interesting for me to find you interesting.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you enjoy talking about the etymology of idioms or turning positive observations into cheeky references.

If your goal is to be happy and leave something positive behind, not just to be rich.

If you believe in the next revolution of child education.

If you read this and you are not bored.

If you love extreme sports, skydiving, rock climbing, zorbing, zip wiring. I've done them all, but need an activity partner to push me even further.

If you want to join an acting class with me, because I suck at it.

Bonus points for confident introverts. :)

Really...I don't care, as long as you have a big heart and some self knowledge.

Oh and please don't message me if you like The Big Bang Theory.
