My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Everything with moderation, including moderation." (Oscar Wilde)

Back in Frankfurt where...

I try to find my way between a 'mature and serious life' (studying, getting up early, planning my career, exercising...) and a certain amount of 'self-destruction' which - for now - I still consider indispensable to my youthfulness :) and which includes: drinking, smoking, parties, spending days in bed, and so on. I'm pretty realistic and pragmatic about all that, though. Whatever feels good.
I just realized that self-destruction probably is way too violent a word for what it really is. Although it necessarily involves some of that, I guess you could just call it hedonism, leisure, enjoyment, or whatever. Up to you.

I have a sweet tooth, and I've definitely had my slice of humble pie. I don't think the two have anything to do with each other, but they both tell you a little about me. :) (be it only that I like puns, and English language expressions...)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Next to nothing; and a lot of things, depending on what's fun at the time; and in many places. I've recently moved to Frankfurt, where I'm doing a master's in Political Theory. In and out of university, I spend a lot of time thinking and discussing about politics - not in the sense of party or world politics, but rather the utopian kind (check out my books section on that one!)... I "pride" myself on not being quite the overly theoretical, ivory-tower kind of person, though. Sometimes, or rather every day, that is, I like to just call it a day, I'll settle down on a sofa with my roomies and some drinks, and talk really important bullshit. The "good-life" is important, and I sure know a good laugh when I see one!

For some time now, I've been planning on doing a PhD and engaging in a university career of teaching, reading and "researching." If it all doesn't work out as planned, though, I'll either do a training as a flight cabin attendant, or - new plan - just win the lottery.

In a half-serious effort of refusing to age ;) , I'm kind of in the process of starting a band right now. Something I really hadn't given any thought to since age 18. My friend wanted do something punk-esque at first, until my other friend joined, who's gonna play her K-Oscillator and / or keyboard. So most likely it's gonna end up being somewhat new-wavey... I really can't tell yet cause we haven't had a single rehearsal. :p
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Cooking: I make a mean veggie lasagne, which I hope you'll get to try once.
- Languages, I guess. I've been living in, and traveling to, quite a number of different countries within the last few years, and I've managed to pick up some of the languages...
- Auto-psychoanalysis :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- My glasses. I love 'em but I keep getting the impression that my face just isn't made for them because they keep rubbing against my ear, which hurts pretty bad at times...
...that stopped happening a while ago. People do still notice my glasses though. Besides, my hair: it becomes curly when I grow it. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:
As for fiction, I'm quite into 20th (and 19th) century classics - Dostoyevsky, Nabokov, Kafka, Camus, and many more... As for the more recent stuff, I really enjoyed J.S. Foer and especially "The Corrections" by Jonathan Franzen - a must-read. And Harry Potter, of course.
Recent addition: Michel Houellebecq. Plateforme was a fantastic read, I thought.
My non-fiction (I'll try to keep that short) definitely involves Adorno, Marx, Feminist Theory, and some history books; generally 'leftist' Social Theory and Sociology, you get the picture...

Movies:
I used to be one of those people for whom basically, movies are like books, except not as good. Only recently have I come to appreciate movies in their own right. Hitchcock's Vertigo was pivot to this. After that, I really liked Tree of Life. And Punch Drunk Love.

Shows:
Bored to Death, Lost, Breaking Bad, Arrested Development, and most recently, Girls.

Music:
The Shins, Belle and Sebastian, Hot Chip, The Postal Service, Feist, CocoRosie, Rufus Wainwright, The Smiths, The Beatles, The Beach Boys - I keep thinking that my playlists haven't changed much in years, but that still doesn't make them change... :)
Recent additions: Lana Del Rey, The Knife. <3
When I go out, I prefer electronic music.

Food:
I loved pho in Vietnam, spicy ma po tofu in Beijing, hummus and falafels in Israel, and pizza and pasta all over the world, including in my kitchen, wherever that may have been at the time... What I actually hated was ugali in East Africa - food has to be well-spiced and tasty, it has to be a pleasure, and it's definitely not just about getting yourself nourished for the next (work) day...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
First of all, a nice person to enjoy all those things with. Since that's not a thing, it leaves me with another 6 things to write down, no progress in terms of getting this profile done :) So...

- Cuddling
- Books
- Tiramisú
- stupid, or not-so-stupid, jokes and a good laugh once in a while
- a nice and comfy bed
- ...and coffee to get me out of that very bed (it's quite comfy after all...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Progressive politics and the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School
- how I came to be who and what I am now, and what a great surprise that is, given my parents. I find that quite comforting.
- what to eat and drink at night to get my mind off all the serious and boring stuff
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
having a nice dinner, with good wine and an espresso afterwards, getting ready to go out and party...
I’m looking for
  • Guys and girls who like bi guys
  • Ages 18–35

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you want to.
...you don't think that studying Political Science makes me a politician. Or even interested in elections and all that stuff so much. Think of me as a philosopher instead, I guess that'll give you a better idea. ;)
