I'm not cocky, but I try to temper a disproportionaly large self-esteem with humour and self-irony.
Okay I might be a bit cocky.
Update: I'll be adding more pictures later. As I'm quite honest in my questions and answers I prefer semi-anonymous pictures because of my work/friends/family (you never know who's watching on the internet!). And again, with the being cocky, I get a lot of messages. Like you women like your message to contain more than "hi, how r you?", so do I. Meaning I won't respond to those kind of messages. Unless you're like my dream girl come true. Also, please do check that we're actually compatible in some shape or form. I don't really care about match percentages, but I've got to laugh at those who contact me but want to wait with sex until after the marriage. Read questions and answers.
I do not subscribe to the typical "Look for your one true love theory" as it's emotionally unhealthy. I never go into any interaction with the intention of "finding True Love (tm). If something develops in a serious relationship it happens naturally over time. And I'd probably never date someone that dislikes sex so much, or isn't open enough about it that they take ages to figure out if they like someone enough that they want to sleep with them or not. For me, sexual chemistry is top priority in any sort of relationship, be it a casual one or a more serious one.
To recap: I don't respond to short one-line messages like "How are you" or "hi". Please stop. They're terribly boring. I don't mean to sound mean, but I assume you haven't read anything I've written if you can't write more than one sentence.
Please read my "Looking for:" and "You should contact me if" sections below.
Physical stuff. Studied various martials arts for over two decades. Been involved with different kinds of physical training. I also studied massage for a few years, and learned more about it when I lived in Asia. Worked as a PT on and off.
Disclaimer: I don't really consider what books, movies or music one likes to be indicative if someone is a good match for me or not. If we like the same things, cool, we have something in common. If not, you can always learn about new stuff from someone with different tastes than you. In other words, I don't really think a long the lines of "oh noes she likes x, CLEARLY WE'RE NOT MEANT TO BE".
You need to be able to survive somewhat bad or dry jokes, and puns.
Except if you like Justin Bieber. Then you're out. Sorry.
Caffeinated drinks. I'm a night-person.. that wakes up early. Ugh, bad combo.
The sun. Living in a part of the world that has extremely long and cold winters, the Sun is one of the thing I cherish most in life.
Alone time. Both work and a hectic social life means I sometime needs a bit of "me-time" to reflect, recharge the batteries and just be me.
A computer. I'm a nerd. Not really, but a lot of my interests and my work kind of demands one.
Physical Activity. Interpret that as you will.
Also, I'm a Wizard.
