My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am hot, funny & smart - just like your elegant self! :-)

"For my own good, I want to hang out with people who want to find out what it would be like to live in such a way as to leave no unspoken words, no unfinished business; I want to be with people who are hungry for the truth, who want to spend time learning and sharing what they have learned rather than defending their images or reputations." (Brad Blanton in "Radical Honesty")
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am originally from Germany, have lived in NY for quite a few years, also spent a year in Barcelona.

I am a curious mind. Love to learn.

I am unconventional. I like to do things "my way", not necessarily "the system's way".

I admit, I derive a certain pleasure from then succeeding with doing it "my way". ;P

[See "Education" below. Actually, dropped out of high school when I was 18 to become a professional musician. Thankfully, that was a very conscious decision, I never had to regret it and achieved what I wanted to achieve. Yes..., you may have to put your preconceptions aside there for a moment. No..., that does not mean I have to be some uneducated "simple mind". Does my writing indicate that? Plus: little, old me speaks four languages. Pretty fluently, actually. ;) Ha, take that! Usually not the bragging type, btw.]

Wow, did I just turn 44? ;)

Doesn't feel like it. And you'd probably give my (current) pictures a few years "credit" as well.
(Most people think I am in my mid 30s. Thanks, mom & dad, for the good genes!)
Oh, and good news! Apparently, I look better in person than on pictures. Better than the other way around, I say.

I was a professional jazz drummer for quite a few years.

Then life took a left turn and I did real estate investing in NY for a few years.
(Who would have thought a few years earlier? Certainly not me.)

Learned a lot, but in the end I wasn't passionate about it.

Now I found a way to combine my passion for music and business: I am producing and publishing music instructional videos with many of the greatest jazz musicians. Lots of fun, lots of work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being strong & stubborn, but I am also kind & generous.
cuddling.
kissing you longer than anybody else before me.
knowing what I want and what I don't want.
making you laugh. (If you get my type of humor. Full disclosure: not everybody does.)
smelling good.
your mom liking me. ;) [Alright, we might be past that stage. Or not?]
being articulate and spelling things correctly.
NEVER giving up, if the cause is worthy and I am fascinated.
really having your back, when I am on your team. You can count on me 200%.
seeing the positive, even in the midst of turmoil/chaos. There is ALWAYS a way!
being a hopeful romantic.
PS: massages. ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Tall, dark & handsome. ;P

And after that:

I have good manners.
I'm kind; and strong at the same time.
I have a dry sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
MUSIC: anything with a strong atmosphere. (Love Joni Mitchell, Ivan Lins & Shirley Horn, for example.)

FOOD: most anything where people really cared to make it! (My favorite hobby? ;)

BOOKS:
Recently read lots of productivity and biz books... Sounds too dry? Well, Rilke's 'letters to a young poet' are great, too, and I like Milan Kundera (time to take the dust of his work, and read one again, thanks for reminding me!).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
BEING AN AMAZING DAD to my 7-year-old daughter (who lives mainly with her mom)
FOOD (*GOOD* Food!)
SEX (Make that GREAT sex)
BEING KIND (and doing the right thing)
DIVERSITY (noooo, I don't mean different ladies)
LAUGHTER (even when the sh*t hits the fan)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Warum ist die Banane krumm? (Why ain't the banana straight? Hint: it rhymes in German. Nope, no sexual connotation; just a joke)

Am I spending my time/LIFE doing something meaningful and fulfilling? (I am content with my current answer.)

UPDATE: a woman on this site put the following into this section:
"... Does anyone ever really tell the truth here? I've read some pretty obvious lies. Ok fine, I'll take one for the team of humanity. I think about food and sex. Almost exclusively. Try and tell me you're any different."

Thanks for setting us all straight, lady!

I shall admit: those two are pretty present on yours truly's mind as well!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Don't have typical Friday nights, you dig.

I may be partying.
I may be working.
I may hang out with my daughter (every 2nd weekend she is with me.)
I may be relaxing at home.
I may eat my butt off at a nice restaurant.
I may be sweating it out at the Russian-Turkish bath.
I may see some friends play music at a club.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
10 years ago, I cheated on a very good friend with his girlfriend. Stoopid.

That said, my level of integrity is overall rather impeccable, I would humbly say. And sharing this piece of info does *not* represent what I stand for and how I live my life.
Trust, transparency and integrity are not just nice-sounding words to me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you really read this - AND it spoke to you.

Yes, I can be a wordy bastard, but you know something about me now.

I am not into spending my time on rather meaningless/chemistry-less dates and back & forth. I am straightforward. I am not an easy catch. But one of the "good ones".

You are probably warm, funny, somewhat feminine (duh?).
You are open-minded and curious about other cultures.
There is something "good" about you.
You are soft and gentle. (I don't mean weak.)
You smell good.
You look good - but you are relatively low maintenance. (Ha again, take that, too!)
You probably do not own a tiny dog. (There, I said it - and hereby eliminated 70% of you? ;) [Then again, feel free to prove me wrong. No, really.]
You have your own thing going on already and we don't have to cling together all the time to be happy. A little independence = vely healthy fol lelationship!

And, yes, I do have a wonderful 7-year old daughter, who lives mainly with her mom (who I am on very amicable terms with), but I am certainly also very present in her life. So, you have to be ok with that part. (No, not looking for a 2nd mom for her.)

One more superficial thing: I hate to say it, but fake b...s are kind of a turn off over here.
No offense or insult intended at all.
But, it's good to be clear, yes?
