My self-summary
Hello my name is Marius.

What I am seeking for is an intense closeness with my destined soul mate. I will definitely contemplate a long term relationship commitment should I feel comfortable with her.

I invest in relationships by being loyal, fair and just with all people in my day to day life. However, I tend to be quite cautious especially emotionally.

I feel that balance is an important essential in an ideal love partnership because I value reciprocity in my relationships and aim to treat a loved one (and others for that matter also) in the same way as I wish to be treated. I am a caring and compassionate and will be incredibly loving and highly sensitive to the wishes of a partner in a generous thoughtful manner.

The first thing that you might notice about me is that I may be
highly analytical and creative with all sorts of ideas and may be slightly detached emotionally. I am rather intelligent (I don't know the exact IQ number, but hey does that really matter?), witty and usually a bit of a philosopher.

I am normally ordinarily neat, tidy, careful and organized and tend to pay particular attention to detail. I normally look at the little things to because they do play part in the greater scheme of things eventually. Small things today can (and usually do) affect things later in life.

I have a strong will with lots of mental energy which is helpful with research and thinking and planning about projects, and organisation and as such I am capable of quickly adapting to any job. I am normally expected to be dedicated and keen to make a difference regarding the achievement of goals. I also enjoy helping others achieve the things that matter to them and that is something that I find very satisfying. I have a forward thinking perspective that is sometimes uncanny to those around me be cause I tend to see things of what can be and with the right focus and planning it can be brought to fruition. I may sometimes also have a rebellious streak to change the status quo (if things can be done better or more efficiently then why not?) and as such I can be stubborn and determined to make things different and perhaps more interesting.

I may not seem to be too materialistic. However, I do appreciate the benefits that finances bring and if directed in a sensible manner it can make a big difference in people's lives.

I have taken the The LONG Scientific Personality Test - and tested INTJ -The Mastermind - I think this link describes my personality rather well: http://www.keirsey.com/4temps/mastermind.asp
What I’m doing with my life
I am following my dreams, which have been turned into reality by working in the legal profession. I am grateful to be able to follow my passion and make a difference in people's lives.

I enjoy the outdoors and the natural beauty of Cape Town. I love to capture the essence of a scenes in a photo. I am spending time to enjoy the art of photography as a hobby.
I’m really good at
Listening to people and understanding what is being said or sometimes not said. I am generous in helping people where I feel that I can make a difference in that person's life by being a friend. I cannot change the world by myself, but I can change the world of someone else by lending a helping hand and providing a vision of what is possible.
The first things people usually notice about me
People usually notice my warm gentle smile, sparkling blue eyes and my sense of humour, which usually gives them a good smile and a chuckle, if they get my humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have read a number of author's works but I must confess that I greatly enjoyed Lin Yutang's The Importance of Living. I enjoyed his flowing writing style and unique way of expressing his thoughts which greatly resonated with my current tastes. The Bible as it teaches profound life lessons and is a treasure trove of wisdom.

I also enjoy watching movies from time to time but will spare you from reading lists of titles, I have watched a fair share. One movie that did stand out for me was Hero directed by Zhang Yimou. I am drawn to the depth of understanding of life that is portrayed by the artist's work.

I enjoy classical music and also some more modern artists. I feel that music is food for the soul and one should savour it with discernment and good taste. Time spent with friends enjoying food food, music and conversation creates those special memories one treasures for a life time.
Six things I could never do without
Life, Air, Water, Food (including but not limited to coffee and chocolate), family and friends, my cats and last but not least books and the internet (to download more books and information).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
That depends what interests me at the time. However, this is the nature of a Libra but I do love books and great ideas about life, the universe, economics, spirituality and last but not least law.

I also long for a special person in my life to share life's special moments with and while creating our lives together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends and family or relaxing after a hectic week and catching up on some reading.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, if I do it would no longer be private.
You should message me if
You are ready to engage in interesting conversations, which could lead to a beautiful and special friendship that may last a lifetime. Who knows where the path of life will take us...
The two of us
