My self-summary
Hi. I'm Jere, and I've just moved to Berlin from the UK. My German is not up to speed for a profile page yet though, so I hope English will do...

I'm a mathematician and an all-purpose nerd. I enjoy my subject, scifi, comic books, board- & video games and think it's brilliant that this site lists C++ in its languages section!

I'm also into the goth, burlesque and bdsm/fetish scenes, which wasn't the main reason for my recent move, but it was certainly convenient.

I'm in a committed albeit polyamorous relationship, and am here looking for both new friends and maybe new partners if the right person comes along. Obviously, the latter can only happen if you're open to at least trying polyamory as well.
What I’m doing with my life
In addition to maths, I spend a lot of my time on Steam, watching classic films and drinking coffee. I'm into all kinds of strategy and puzzle games, from Rubik's cubes via Starcraft to X-wing miniatures. I guess a one word answer would be "thinking".
I’m really good at
Being quiet. Also indecisive. What I'm not good at is talking up my achievements without first being subversive.

I have an award for "best painted army" from a wargaming tournament, so I'm at least competent at that. I'm also pretty decent at throwing a whip. I have a PhD in maths, though it feels like that had more to do with a series of lucky coincidences than any exceptional talent.
The first things people usually notice about me
My ponytail, and at the moment, a fair amount more facial hair than is evident in my profile picture. Shortly followed by my fondness of puns and an air of cynicism, at least if I'm on form.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've got quite a few I could name for each category (it seems everyone does), but I think this shortlist is representative.

Book - Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka
Movie - Pi by Darren Aronofsky
Show (TV) - Twin Peaks by David Lynch
Show (play, musical etc.) - St. Joan of the Stockyards by Bertolt Brecht
Music - S&M by Metallica
Food - Spicy. Turkish and Mexican especially.
Six things I could never do without
In no particular order: coffee, my work, a computer, broadband, Soontir Fel and, recently, Google Translate.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My thesis corrections, as well as "What's the word for X in German?"
On a typical Friday night I am
Most frequently at home. Often with my laptop. I don't lead a very hectic lifestyle.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm into BDSM. It hasn't been a part of all of my previous relationships and doesn't have to enter into all of my future ones, but I do have a certain fondness of submissive or masochistic people.
You should message me if
We have something in common, or you think at least one of us might be interesting. That's probably enough for a good start. And you either want to be just friends, or have noticed the part about polyamory at the start.
