My self-summary
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 person.

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
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 woodworking, etc.
I’m really good at
- 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 projects.
- counting in binary numbers with my fingers.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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
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
The Sunscreen song.

What is short-term dating?
On a typical Friday night I am
pretty often at home, nowadays. Home is a happy place.
You should message me if
you think I'd enjoy receiving a message from you. :-) Or if you've a pressing need to correct some mistakes in my status. Or if you'd need somebody to move some furniture and connect a ceiling light for you. Or if you'd want some good company to go out with. Or if you think YOU'd enjoy sending a message to me. Or if you need a hug.

In any case, I hope we could meet rather soon in real life. Only then you really know how things work out.
