Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a peaceful boy with a rather simple style of living. My
interests have been social issues (like international economy,
environment, social sciences, philosophy) and music. I also study
languages by myself (previously French, Spanish, and now I am into
I live in a small apartment and travel by my bike. My material
living standards I tend to keep low. I take my daily biking trips
as physical exercise (also practice some running and skiing). I
have not had much interest in traveling despite of being interested
in international affairs.
Being into rational thinking and having intellectual interests is
what I value most in a woman. Having at least some originality in
cultural tastes gives extra points. But these are not requirements
for less serious encounters.
I do not have a need for having more than one companion at the time
but I am ready to consider poly-arrangements - after all it seems
almost everybody in my Internet circles is a polyamorist.

I have not developed a habit of watching TV series or movies. It
seems I prefer reading texts to watching moving pictures for some
reason. Last films I enjoyed watching were Yasujiro Ozu's ''Late
Spring'' and "Tokyo Story". So, films with sociological
underpinnings might be my preference.
I am mostly in non-fiction these days. I used to read lots of world
literature classics (plus some hard sci-fi) at the high school but
now for many years I have found it difficult to allocate time for
reading fiction. I still read something though. Currently I am
trying to read short stories in Chinese. Some poetry is fine at
times (less time consuming than novels...), currently going through
Guillaume Apollinaire in the original language.
I have always taken music very seriously. My favorite genres are
classical and jazz (especially jazz fusion). I am also into other
old Afro-American genres like 1970s-funk and old R&B. Further,
I may listen to demoscene radios on the Internet. I keep on
exploring all kinds of stuff (right now: Brian Eno & Talking
Heads). On the classical side I enjoy most of big names from
Monteverdi to Schönberg and beyond. Recently I have returned to my
old hobby: making tracker format music with a computer. I can play
keyboards and guitar.
When it comes to food, I am very modest and I try to pay attention
for health aspects when choosing what to eat (have been vegetarian
since 1998, but I certainly do not preach about it). Food is an
important source of pleasure for me, but it does not need to be
anything special. Simple stuff tastes good when in hunger.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
