My self-summary
Hi there, so nice of you to join me on this journey to the center of my ego.

I have been living in this city for some years, moving here from Austria to start doing what creatively and intellectually really stimulates me.
I can be shy but also excitable like you wouldn't believe. I am also very open about how i feel (a blessing and a curse, depending on the situation) .

In more recent news, i quit smoking about 9 months ago after 23 years and replaced it with exercise.

To keep this simple and to avoid potential grammar disasters (english third language and all that) I'll just sum it up all nice in bite sized factoids.

Things i like:
Can't emphasize this one enough: conversation
(not small talk, that's like foreplay, but without all the fun)
the sea/diving
Physical activity
People who say how they feel and actually feel how they claim
Absurd humor
traveling, last was australia, next is iceland
red wine
the smell of coffee

Things i don't like:
binge drinking for it's own sake
Television (with a few exceptions)
Granville weekend night life
being more or less confined to your table in any bar
the taste of coffee

oh, and here is one of my favorite things on the internet
What I’m doing with my life
learning new skills
having fun when i can
meeting new people
learning some more
Travel whenever i can
spending forever in 1 spot trying to get that 'perfect shot'..
I’m really good at
remembering full sets of dialogue from movies that i have only seen once.. my brain is chock full with useless information
The first things people usually notice about me
either that i am very quiet and serious, or that i am loud and animated. it can switch from one second to the other.

Life, the universe and everything.
And sex.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends, maybe for a drink, maybe at home playing games, maybe relaxing after a hard week of work.. i don't really have a regular thing i do.
I love going on photo safaris at night to capture anything interesting i find. for some shots from my travels and other photo experiments, here is a flickr account that i am in the process of populating.
extra bonus for hilarious comments from my dad
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm not a very private person, i actually prefer to talk about private things to make other's feel more at ease.. that and I loathe small talk, let's talk about something with some substance
You should message me if
I am looking for my companion, my partner in crime, a genuine connection. I am not opposed to just having fun and nothing starts as a long term relationship right away, but that is the goal.
I also find that while i very rarely get attracted to people, when it does happen i go from 'you're interesting' to 'i want to do naughty things to you' in the blink of an eye.

Message me if that, or anything else in this profile resonates with you, but i am not looking for internet pen pals (i stole that line from someone else admittedly) but rather to meet in person.

Thanks for reading,
Talk to you soon, or best of luck !
