I absolutely love the outdoors. Always up for hiking, camping, running Lake Merritt, swimming and most other things done outdoors (the big exceptions are snow-related activities and sports that require hand-eye coordination - I am spectacularly bad at them).
I love dancing and know and/or can fake enough steps to any dance to have a good time, without being particularly good at any of them. I also like strumming chords on my guitar and singing along.
I am biased in favor of foreign movies (The Lives of Others, All About My Mother, Head On to list a few). I am pretty illiterate about TV shows but I do watch (and love) Game of Thrones and the occasional Turkish soap opera.
I loved the Beatles as a teenager (and still have a special place in my heart for them). I am not up to speed on contemporary music and like the older stuff (60s-80s). I like dancing to Latin and swing beats. I love old school jazz, and Balkan/Rebetiko tunes melt my heart.
My cooking is Mediterranean-ish and I can probably happily live for a *very* long time on feta, tomatoes and olive oil. I have vegetarian tendencies but generally appreciate food in all forms and shapes.
Also, I am a data scientist - I believe in the power of algorithms and big data so I do take this match percentage thing somewhat seriously and have a preference for those who are a reasonably good match by okc voodoo standards.
P. S. I am not on the A-list thing so if you "like" me I won't know who you are - please send a message instead!
Also, please no contentless one-liners like "hey, how r u?" - I truly don't know how to respond to those.
