My self-summary
My passions are writing, drawing, taking photographs, full-bodied Spanish wines, and binge watching quality TV shows, such as Fleabag. I love real books with pages to turn, crackly vinyl, and driving long distances. I love dry heat. I live with my mum. Not really. I live with my feet on the ground and head in the clouds. No. My head's on the ground, my feet are also on the ground. Something's up there in the clouds, I think it's one of my hands. Or a satellite. I love life's pitfalls and triumphs, I'm considerate of others, even strangers who seem to be in trouble or troubled, I enjoy helping lost tourists, and I'm easy to get along with although I sometimes suffer from occasional low blood sugar induced mood swings. Then I remember to eat and all's well again.
What I’m doing with my life
Writing at home. Writing in cafes. Talking to strangers.
I’m really good at
Making delicious sandwiches, and defusing conflict; often at the same time. My sandwiches are that good.
The first things people usually notice about me
I unintentionally smile at them as if we know each other and, just to add to the confusion, look like someone they know.

The six things I could never do without
Lost Causes
Coconut milk curry
My old mucker J.
Eye contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Food combinations and time travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Writing, out, reading a book, talking to someone, watching TV, drinking, eating...you name it, I'm probably not doing it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I never choose the front jar or tin of food on a shop shelf.
You should message me if
...you'd prefer to talk in person rather than online.

...I've stated that I'm looking for women, but men are also welcome to get in touch. When I changed it to "Everybody" I received lots of emails from men from a million miles away.

...when you reach a certain age people will be able to tell from the lines on your face that you've always smiled and laughed a lot. Unlike that dreadful woman who works in my local bakery.

...you actually listen to the other person when involved in a conversation, and you're not a flake or busy-body.

...you're German and you're willing to pretend that tandem-speaking is an option, even though it's safe to say your English will be far better than my German, so if you're fine with that then we can both laugh at my attempts at speaking your language and then switch back to English.
