My self-summary
The thing I value most in life and in other people is honesty. I won't do without it. Does that sound too German? Well, forgive me, I am German. Living in New York now for almost a decade and LOVING it. I'm a nomad by heart, though, so traveling is an essential part of my life. Road trips in this country rock! Hiking, too.
I have lived in various places on this planet and hope to continue this exploration. I feel you haven't really experienced a place until you paid your first utility bill there (ever tried to decipher an electricity invoice in Hebrew?).
I live in a beautiful communal house with four like-minded people in Brooklyn. This has been a wonderful adventure, with its usual ups and downs, but has become the way I would like to live life and create family.
I am a very independent person and need friends, lovers, partners accept that part of me. At the same time, I am open-hearted and absolutely accountable -- if I say I'll call you I will do so. You can trust that I will be honest about my feelings and say what I think. And if I've taken you to my heart you will have a hard time getting out of there again...
