Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just moved to Zurich for a new job. I hope to create a new circle
of friends but of course also for something more serious.
I love traveling (backpacking) around the world and outdoor sports
(hiking, camping, kayaking..). I like older kinds of music like
jazz and blues but also Ska and rock recently I got into
electro-swing. I love backpacking and spend almost all my vacation
days someplace else.
I would say I am an easy going person (for an engineer) and
flexible due to life. I am definitely introverted and a realist
(Definitely not an optimist but not quite a pessimist). I am a
straightforward person so I am easy to get along with or to hate. I
also love to tease people and to just say silly things for
interesting facial expressions. At the same time I know what I want
I realized I am a bit strange because of my musical taste I do not
like going out to clubs and also I do not enjoy getting drunk. I
wonder what my friends see in me but it must be something :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Moving to Zurich and learning how to play the Harmonica.
I gave up on trying to get a PhD while doing my current job. It
does not seem to fit well due to different requirements. I am
thinking of how to do it. Mean while I am putting even effort to
improving my German and French.
I am trying to swim in as many natural bodies of water as possible
(regardless of temperature).
I am also trying to get a haircut in every country I visit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-Not taking life and myself too seriously
-Getting around new towns without a map.
-It seems I am quite good at gardening.
-I think and so many others that I am a good in the kitchen and I
like to cook with others ;)
-I think I am quite a good engineer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am quite silly. I say things just to see peoples reaction.
Often its not appropriate or politically correct. I guess my
glasses stand out?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
music: I like ska, jazz, klazmer, cuban music and blues. Recently I
discovered electroswing. So some of my favorite music is Leningard,
B.B. king. Balkan beat box, Manu Chao, Amsterdam Klezemer Band,
Louis Armstrong, Oi Va Voi, blues brothers, Howling wolf, Caravan
Palace,and many more.
Books: Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy, Asimov... basically a lot
of sci fi books but also some fantasy like Terry Pratchett's and
Jack Whyte's books. I read mostly for fun and relaxation. I also
read books about travel and cooking. I also read a lot of work
foooood: I love food! when i travel someplace i must try the new
foods. I used to love meat but after my South america trip I
overdosed I still love it but I just do not desire it as much, I
like baked goods, good bread is surprisingly nice (dont ask why) I
also cut on this as it seems to hurt when I eat a lot. I still eat
whole lot of chocolate, all manner of chocolate infused items. I
started paying a lot of fruits these days especially in
I try to bring back new teas from far countries. I am a big tea
lover and drink it a lot more then coffee. In fact all manner of
exotic food is great.
Movies: We used to watch many movies while we could not go out
because of the snow blocking the doors during the long Canadian
winters (sometimes while we waited for the baby seals to come up
for air) but in the mild European weather is nicer to go out.
Anyways some movies that I enjoyed are Brazil, Das boot, good
Goodbye Lenin,Kin-Dza-Dza, Solaris (the Russian version not the new
shit), A boy and his dog, fight club, Amélie (not sure if i should
be ashamed of this),Rejsen til Saturn, Monty Python, Everything is
Illuminated, The lord of the rings movies etc. etc. If you can
suggest a good one I would appreciate it as I have not see anything
I was a lot of educational series on the web as well as Ted. I do
this surprisingly often as I do not even have TV.
p.s. I tend to read magazines and profiles from the end.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Chocolate (or something else sweet to go with the tea)
-The great outdoors and my time alone there
-Seeing and doing new things (I have endless curiosity)
-Job that I enjoy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I seem to spend a lot of time planing my day to optimize my time. I
rather not do it but i hate wasting time even more.
Often I think about my next vacation. One big thing that always
What i am going to cook/bake/make for the next meal. mmmmm :D
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am new in Zurich so nothing typical. I am open to suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an engineer but I like curves!
