Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the kind of guy who usually thinks things through, then gets
sidetracked an somehow still gets the important things done. Or
At times my way of thinking can be a bit convoluted, probably
because I tend to switch perspectives. To my way of thinking, the
ability to differentiate between standpoints is underrated.
Therefore, I prefer compromise over getting my way.
Oh, and I don't like being the center of attention. Better being
the unknown power behind the throne than some poster boy. :-D
Well, I guess the saying "still waters run deep" applies best to my
I've decided to give online dating another shot because although
I've been self-dependent and quite content with that for quite a
long time now, I'm starting to miss the intimacy a relationship can
bring. Also, most of my friends are getting married and I feel
kinda left out. :-)
It's not that I really crave a long-term relationship no matter
what or that I have the compulsion to marry on the spot, but I hope
to meet intelligent, interesting, charming, enchanting or in some
other way special women to spend a good time together. Whether it
ends in friendship, a fling or a true relationship, I'd appreciate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as an R&D Consultant and really liking it,
in my free time I like biking and swimming, visiting bars or going
to concerts with friends and in the sumertime hanging out in
beergardens or parks / public places after a hot day with one or
more cold ones, discussing everyday matters, personal problems or
debating about a wide range of things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Improvising, rationalizing, analyzing, having reasons to say "I
told you so" '(sometines it'S almost uncanny), getting the gist of
things, being clueless.
And I've been told that I'm a good listener and in providing
reasonably good advice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I prefer scifi and fantasy novels, especially the works of Terry
Pratchett with the occasional non-fiction book in between,
preferably about recent history or on political / sociological
I'm not that much into movies and like GoT, cartoons, some comedy
shows (IT Crowd, Inbetweeners, Misfits and Scrubs) and I really
like Doctor Who. There are many shows I plan to watch sometime,
when I have nothing better to do.
Although music is quite important to me, I like too many styles to
list them here. I tend to prefer harder, faster or darker
Regarding favorite bands The Sisters of Mercy, Garbage, Siouxsie
and the banshees, The Prodigy and Scooter come to mind.
I really don't like R'n'b, Gangsta Rap / Hiphop and Volksmusik.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Oxygen, water, food, clothing, shelter, electricity - the basic
needs in a urbanized society. Apart from that coffee, bike, books,
access to the internet - it's about things, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The deviation of politics from democratic principles and human
rights, the dominance of neoliberal economic principles over
democratic ones, the growing prevalence of reactionist/racist or
chauvinistic currents in society and why so few people care.
Ways to get rid of "concernded citizens" and their ilk.
Usually it ends in some cynical jokes, disillusion, the notion that
there are just too many stupid people around and another beer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Increasingly at home browsing youtube for old music vids, gaming or
getting to bed early, with the occasional binge in between.
You should message me if

you want. I would be thrilled.
I try to answer every message, even if it is only to say "sorry,
not interested". I expect the same, 'cause I think every serious
message is worth it.
