Try floating for the first time, go hiking (was more fun than expected in 2016), visit at least two festivals (WGT and Amphi), do more bicycle tours than in 2016, more live concerts (Knorkator 2016 was great), play more boardgames (for the BGG Boardgame Challenge 2017). :)
If you are looking for a burly hairy patriarch and provider, well, then all the best luck to you, but I'm not the one.
As much as I gladly share what I have with those I love, I despise the outdated gender roles, clichés, and whatever else enforces artificial and unnecessary limits unto us. And all the same I try my best to never judge people, because what do I know about their lifes or what they experienced?
I'm a friendly and open minded person. When I don't know someone I might be shy, but if I like you, I can quickly become a good friend.
I'm quite nerdy, which is not surprising as I work as a programmer. I read a lot (check my librarything account mentioned later in this profile if you enjoy reading as well), love board games and weird movies.
I'm still not confining myself to the office and my flat, but instead enjoy bicycle tours, walks in the forest, caring for my plants, and several times a year make my way to different festivals. And while I do not have the body of a greek god, I am not allergic to sports either (swimming and gym). My greatest accomplishment of the year in this matter is a 230km bicycle tour through the Rhine Gorge (try an image search on the web for "rhine gorge", to find out why we picked that route). :)
According to that Myers-Briggs test I'm an INFP or INFJ.
I'm striving to improve myself, not only in acquiring new knowledge as my job requires, but also in any other way possible, with mixed results.
Oh, and in matters of sexuality, GGG is the way I enjoy it most (in case you are unfamiliar with that term, look up "good, giving, game" if you feel like it).
What did I forget... Ah, boardgames: https://apps.quanticfoundry.com/tabletop/71ef7f4f3f094cf7a458f8e356faa42c/?n=Orya
Working, gaming, reading, spending time with friends, travelling, biking, swimming, walking through forests, festivals, cooking with friends and spending time with friends in all kinds of other ways.
I also got a goodreads account, but it's not as up to date as the LibraryThing one.

I have also watched quite a number of japanese movies which I enjoyed as well, such as Hadaka no Shima, The Castle of Sand, Tokyo Story, Floating Weeds or a number of Takeshi Kitano movies.
I do not really like movies that focus on glorifying violence (such as those Saw films, brrrrrr). But some films are so extremely insanely over the top, that they basically break through the "eewwww" barrier and reach the "wtf" place where it gets interesting again. Such as "Tokyo Gore Police" or "Vampire Girl vs Frankenstein Girl".
Monkey Dust, Futurama, Rick and Morty, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones. I don't watch much TV though. Oh, and also Star Trek of course. :D

tea, chocolate, uuhm.... hm.... chocolate? hmm... and tea... fish is good too, and about all foods if cooked yourself/with friends
"How do I program that the best way?"
"How do I explain this board game best to my friends?"
"What plant is that one, that grows over there?"
- pc gaming alone or with friends
- playing board or card games with friends
- cooking alone or with friends
- watching a documentary, while most often working or gaming at the same time
- going early to bed to enjoy a very long sleep without missing half of the saturday
- every once in a while also a visit at a gothic club or a pub
- taking a long bath
A future, where we'd travel to foreign countries together, getting to know their ancient culture, taste interesting food at their restaurants, make new friends.
A future in which we'd spend rainy afternoons at friends houses, laughing and playing board games with them, or watching movies.
One in which we both and our friends would check out interesting festivals, hopping from concert to concert and spending the time inbetween in museums, cafés or lying in the grass in sunny parks.
One where we'd stroll through forests on hiking tours, the sun casting warm patterns on our skin. Or through a cold misty forest, sharing snacks and hot chocolate or coffee while hunting mushrooms.
Well, or that's at least stuff I like. While a partner obviously can't enjoy everything of that as well, enjoying at least some of those things seems necessary. :)
Edit: I'm also a great fan of visiting people in foreign nations. So you want some pleasant company and don't mind showing me around a bit, then don't hesitate to send me a message as well. :)
Edit again: if you are about to press the like button, consider sending me a message instead. I have no premium account so I don't know that it was you who liked me and thus can't get back to you. But if you send me a message, everything is possible. :)
Edit again: also feel free to message me in case you are looking for a travel partner and think we could get along for that duration. It could be fun to explore some foreign place together, and maybe we are interested in the same countries to visit.
