My self-summary
Looking for new friends, no dating nor sex. If this is fine by you, please send me a message! It's safer than betting that you really mean it if your profile says you're looking for new friends :-)

French guy who recently moved to Helsinki with his girlfriend, looking for people to chat with, to broaden my knowledge of the place and its people.

Very geek, happy father of one, stepfather of two, plus one bunny, I have little time outside family life now, but I enjoy spending it on games, or reading, or with friends, hopefully with some nice drink ! (Rather cocktail than beer, an I like making them myself)
What I’m doing with my life
I studied computer science and now I'm a math and physics teacher. in a bilingual school - I'm still studying finnish, but it takes time when I don't need it at home or work !
I’m really good at
Listening to others, even of different views, something that tends to be rare unfortunately.
I'm quite good at cooking, but not healthy, I confess!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Now that I have less time for games, I can answer that :)

Books : I cannot say I am an avid reader. When something interests me, I can read a lot, but I don't feel like reading all the time. However, I clearly enjoyed diverse books such as Tolkien's books,Harry potter, Wuthering Heights or lately the french series from early 20th century Fantômas.

Movies : a bit of everything as long as it's not too .... artistically pretentious. I could cite movies from X-men to The Fountain, of from Benjamin Button to Mr Nobody. I rather have a thing for dramas :)

Shows : not too many, it takes too much time. X-files, Friends, Dr Who mostly ; though I have finished none of these. A lot of anime too, but I haven't had time in a while !

Music : things with a nice melody, nice voice too, whatever the genre ! Samuli Edelmann, Samuli Putro, metal, original soundtracks of movies, series or games :)

Food. All of it. Weird stuff (durian), classics (pizza), delicacies (sushi), ... But i don't have much of a sweet tooth, mostly salty things for me ! My girlfriends thinks it's a shame for a French :)
The six things I could never do without
Programming. Seriously, I don't do it for work and I miss it, I do it anytime I can!

Playing video games. Though really I can do without, but it is nice and relaxing. And I mean those with a story.

Some time alone. It's good to disconnect from the world.

(to be continued when I think of more !)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How petty interests, mostly rich peo-... men wanting to be richer, have made the world a wasteland. And the people's minds too.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday is pizza night at home! But with kids, my Friday nights are not so wild :-)
You should message me if
You're not looking for love nor sex. I'm taken and happily in love, please respect that.

You *are* looking for a new friend, or even better a penpal !
Especiallly if you are from Finland, I would love to meet new people here and improve my Finnish ^^
