My self-summary
I AM NOT IN THE U.S. RIGHT NOW!!
I am a reflective, understanding, and sociable guy.
I like to believe that one can keep growing and learning all through one's life, and that it is always great to find opportunities to find out unsuspected aspects of one's own mind and make oneself more valuable for both oneself and others.
What I’m doing with my life
I AM NOT IN THE U.S. RIGHT NOW. I am an open-minded, sweet, honest, cultured and well-travelled guy. After having lived for several years in other countries, I am staying in my homecountry Brazil for at least a few months. I have my hedonistic side, but I also like to work out hard, and keep myself in great shape. I sometimes like enjoying the nightlife in good company, but if I had to choose I would rather stay home reading or watching a good film, which can range from a great European arthouse piece to the latest disposable Hollywood comedy. I can also enjoy cooking or gardening, etc., either in the company of my partner or a few selected friends. Having now obtained my PhD in German philosophy from Cambridge, I am excited about the idea of becoming a professional academic or reaching a position in the corporate world, where I can apply the ideas I have been developing at the intellectual level. I want a gentle leader, not exactly a sugar partner or a spoiler. I am looking for an approachable, friendly and reliable person who can be a respectful and caring partner. I am not expecting you to be a dominating figure in sexual terms. Actually, when it comes to intimacy, I like to feel that I have someone who is concerned with our mutual satisfaction, in the most flexible possible way - I can be up for a long romantic couple of hours, or an intense exploration of dirtier ways to cross the line. So the leader I have in mind is someone who will be willing to help me become a better person and professional, where the financial support will be the least important. My partner will rejoice at my success, and will be proud of me... My partner will be the reason why I will always aim higher and higher, in a way that the both of us will have a great time together.

Music
A nice place to run
A quiet room to sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Trying to make sure that next time I go to bed I will feel I am a better human being.
On a typical Friday night I am
Preparing to go for a concert or a movie with good company.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to listen to a few specific Abba songs at my occasional melancholic periods.
You should message me if
you would like to chat and laugh over a cup of coffee.
