I can be chatty, but I am also comfortable with silence. I can be very silly, but also enjoy long, deep discussions about politics, philosophy, history, religion, life, universe, everything... 42, anyone?
One of the joys in life is a good discussion with someone with insight in a topic, preferably slightly different views from you, that enjoys sharing views and broadening perspectives, and realizes that the goal of life isn't to prove everybody else wrong.
I am not religious, and I am not areligious. I simply don't know. And I am happy like that. I don't care too much about your religious convictions, but if you are practising any religion very seriously, I may feel slightly awkward. If you love Jesus more than me, then we'll have problems.
I am slightly naive, by choice, because I find cynicism so ugly.
My favorite smell is vanilla, but for ice cream my favorite flavour is chocolate (with marshmallows).
I like pound shops.
My favorite sound is of a sharp pencil writing on paper, but also the clickety-clickety of typing on a keyboard and the gentle tapping of rain on the window sill, and of course the crackling of burning wood in the fire place.
I do very well with numbers and logic and languages, but not all that well with music, rhythm or a football.
I have a geeky streak.
I have a university degree in statistics. But that was a long time ago. I am a totally different person now. At least within a 95 percent confidence interval. I also studied various other courses at uni, bits and pieces of linguistics, philosophy, maths, physics, finance, and more. Now I work in IT. Life is unpredictable. Isn't that great!?!
I'm old enough to know better, but young enough to not care sometimes.
I am halfway between deep thinker and a kid at the back of the bus. I have passions and opinions.
If you're into Myers-Briggs, I'm an ENFP, but the E is quite close to an I sometimes. Read more.
I am always up for an adventure
I am honest and straightforward and expect the same in return. No game playing or passive aggression, thank you very much.
I have a license to drive heavy forklifts.
I enjoy watching the occasional sport event but find life too short to be fanatical about the success of any specific team.
Simply that joy exists is reason to rejoice.
I am originally from Lund in Sweden, but have since 2000 lived in Paris, Galway, London, Durban, back to Lund and now I am back in London again.
I like the matching system here on OKCupid, the women I have met with high match-% have all been very interesting.
But in the OKC analysis of me they say I am "less friendly to strangers" and "worse mannered" which i think is incorrect.
I would probably also turn up that gauge a notch on both "more political" and "more mathematical".
