Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Attention: This is a friend of Nils adding her comments!
Nils is quite a catch. He is honest, intelligent, caring and
sensitive. He can dance (including ballroom) and enjoys going
ballet performances, theatre, movies or spend time exercising
the outdoors. With his education and abilities, he will always
a job and be able to support himself and a family well.
Take him out for a date and understand that he might be a bit
awkward and shy until he knows you better. You might have to
the first move ;)
Now back to Nils's own writing...
If I had to describe myself in three words I'd say: Scientist,
dancer, athlete. I've always had an interest in science and
technology, but the other two came later in life. I started running
when I lived in the suburbs for a while and there seemed very
little else to do. I started dancing shortly afterwards in an
effort to become a more well rounded person. Both have evolved
since then: I did my first IronMan triathlon last year, and
participate regularly in local dance performances.
I'm originally from Germany, and came to the US after I finished my
PhD. I lived in Chicago for five years before I came to Iowa. Not
sure if I will stay in Iowa for the rest of my life, but if I
wanted to I would have that option.
While I do quite a bit of sports myself, I don't enjoy watching
sports. I'd much rather go to the opera or the ballet. I do dance,
but for me that mostly means going to dance lessons and dance
practices, only rarely if ever do I go to dance clubs. And if I go
I'm way too shy to talk to any girls.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a physicist for the university. The job comes with quite
a bit of travel, and I am still making up my mind whether that is a
good or a bad thing.
After my IronMan last year I'm dialing back my athletic activity
(at least for a while) and am focusing somewhat more on my dancing
and other hobbies. At some point I was taking guitar lessons, maybe
I start with those again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My job, for what I do, I'm one of the best in the world. I also
regularly get admiration for my abilities as a cook, dancer or
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming that the basics like food and shelter are already covered:
My computer and the internet. Beyond that running and dancing. Not
sure what else to add, six is a very large number. Maybe my phone
and my iPod.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
way too many things. If I see a curious problem, I immediately
start thinking about what would be the ideal solution for it. I
really enjoy thinking about any kind of problem, be it work
related, or philosophy or anything else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm willing to admit almost anything, but you at least have to ask.

you find me interesting. I think of myself as a kind and generous
person, who always tries to do the right thing. I do not lie or
play mind games, almost never raise my voice, and I am always open
to compromise. I'd expect the same in a partner.
Apart from that you should have something in your life that you
feel passionate about or can be proud of. You should no longer be
living with your parents; and ideally you would have lived in
another state at least once and have traveled abroad.
