Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
He is incurably curious, social, an analytic thinker, eager to
engage in conversation in most any topic. He has an open-minded,
sensitive, and mischievous personality. A young dog as a partner in
life. Loves to tinker with stuff, to sail, and to explore new
places. Also, he always talks about himself in the royal third
I've finally learned how to lead a happy life by myself, and that's
a good thing. However, life would be even more fun with the right
person next to me. I'm well capable of supporting myself and
looking after myself -- instead, I'm looking more for someone to
share new experiences with and to come home to. Someone to explore
the world with, to have incredible sex with, to wake up in the
mornings. I hope that someone is independent, super-smart,
well-educated, pretty and fun to be with.
Also, I don't necessarily think the personality traits given in my
profile are that descriptive. I regard myself as rather kind and
helpful person, and not quite that non-optimistic, either. I might
be wrong, of course!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm learning hard to lead a not-such-a-job-oriented life, and I
believe I'm having a moderate success in it, too. Having taken a
dog a year ago, I'm now spending more time at home with the pooch,
or at least trying to mostly visit dog-friendly places. I love to
sail, but I'm currently between-sailing-boats. I'm also very much
into making things - 3D printing, (camera) drones, occasional
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- making dogs adore me (what a useful skill, eh?).
- fixing other people's problems.
- making sarcastic comments at improper occasions.
- getting absorbed in my occasionally rather peculiar personal
- counting in binary numbers with my fingers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot, both fiction and non-fiction. I often lean towards
Sci-Fi, but am not limited to it. Economics is a one particular
topic of interest. A few recent reads: New York by Edward
Rutherfurd, Puhdistus (Purge) by Sofi Oksanen, Grapes of Wrath by
John Steinbeck (now, THAT was a book), Red Plenty by Francis
Spufford, Last Night on Twisted River by John Irving, Baroque Cycle
and Anathem by Neal Stephenson, lots of Robert Harris.
In movies, I guess I don't share Hollywood's perception of
"comedy". Other than that, it really depends. I enjoy both brainy
drama and action/scifi escapism.
Regarding music, I've lately become rather ignorant.
Rock/pop/soul/funk/jazz/blues of 1970's, 80's, and 90's is the
surest thing to please me. Oh, and Bossa Nova, always.
I'd like to define my eating habits as "trying to avoid anything
with both spine and legs", but I'm not being really too strict
regarding that. I always have a weak spot for Japanese food,
though, and usually for seafood in general.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Of immaterial things, I need time of my own and a space of my own,
but on the other hand, regular social contact is something that
helps me maintain my sanity. The thought of living indefinitely
without any affection or sex is a horrifying one.
In the physical realm, it's a bit tougher. I'm a poor packer,
trying to always take too much stuff even for a simple weekend
trip. I lug my camera bag around pretty often, but that's hardly
something I never could do without. Although, on that deserted
island there might be interesting things and sceneries to shoot.
Also I'm a bit of a geek, although I have been quite happy without
most of my geekery on the sailing trips of up to one month. I guess
I'd feel a bit lost without my phone, though. Not that it would be
of any use on the deserted island, either.
Did that make up for six things yet?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
