My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
“Of all manifestations of power, restraint impresses men the most.”
— Thucyclide
I feel that we are the sum of the people we interact with the most. Most of my friends are highly intelligent and active.

What I'm looking for:
I looking for someone who is a friend first. It's important to base your relationships around respect. In general I seek authenticity and try my best to live authentically. I want to spend my spare time with someone who inspires me.

The banal:
~ I'm eating more veggies and less grains. (I prepare my own food as much as possible)
~ I like to look for dress shirts in thrift shops.
~ I focus on maintaining energy levels and sleep <-I'm visible at around 1:20.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It really depends, this winter I've been interested in mid-east politics and its interplay with western media and how that shapes popular opinion.
Staying current with things that I value while looking for new avenues for growth.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've tried my hands at other things with varying success but cycling takes up most of my attention. (A 300 km weekend of riding would not be abnormal)

I tend to invest fully in my interests. (some stick better than others) I just picked up an Arabic language book. It's pretty exciting to start something new from scratch.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's pretty mixed bag and sometimes contradictory. A stranger once told me that I'm the most outgoing shy person they've met.
My cycling friends say I have massive arms and legs. Body building types would say I'm tiny. (My legs are 22-23 inches while my waist is just under 29 in the summer.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I read mostly non-fiction but have a soft spot for Camus, Sartre. Zizek.

Movies: Anything by Stanley Kubrick or Ridley Scott. I'd say that I prefer mostly drama or documentary movies (social justice/social equality). (I refuse to watch action movies)

Music: Joy Orbison, Lana Del Ray, Robert Henke, Daughter, Bjork.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Avocado. Quinoa. Steelcut oats. Cinnamon, Merino and engeineered garments.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Geopolitics, ethics, bioscience, it really depends on the day. Currently, I'm interested in mid-east politics and am trying to pick up another language.

How a good stretching routine prevents injury. Pre-hab is rehab.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most often I'm resting or cooking.
Stretching and working on core while listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's not really private if it's written on a public forum.
~I imagine that I do interesting things day to day but to be honest I have a hard time deciding if I'm boring or interesting. (Trying something new entails getting a different type of bike)
~ I watch about 0 hours of tv every week.
~ I train about 10-15 hours per week. I selfishly protect this time. I struggle to strip away muscle mass every summer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

~Are a native speaker of anything other than English.
