Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The thing I value most in life and in other people is honesty. I
won't do without it. Does that sound too German? Well, forgive me,
I am German. Living in New York now for almost a decade and LOVING
it. I'm a nomad by heart, though, so traveling is an essential part
of my life. Road trips in this country rock! Hiking, too.
I have lived in various places on this planet and hope to continue
this exploration. I feel you haven't really experienced a place
until you paid your first utility bill there (ever tried to
decipher an electricity invoice in Hebrew?).
I live in a beautiful communal house with four like-minded people
in Brooklyn. This has been a wonderful adventure, with its usual
ups and downs, but has become the way I would like to live life and
I am a very independent person and need friends, lovers, partners
accept that part of me. At the same time, I am open-hearted and
absolutely accountable -- if I say I'll call you I will do so. You
can trust that I will be honest about my feelings and say what I
think. And if I've taken you to my heart you will have a hard time
getting out of there again...
