My self-summary
Attention: This is a friend of Nils adding her comments!
Nils is quite a catch. He is honest, intelligent, caring and
sensitive. He can dance (including ballroom) and enjoys going to ballet performances, theatre, movies or spend time exercising in the outdoors. With his education and abilities, he will always have a job and be able to support himself and a family well. Take him out for a date and understand that he might be a bit awkward and shy until he knows you better. You might have to make the first move ;)
Now back to Nils's own writing...

I'm originally from Germany, and came to the US after I finished my PhD. I lived in Chicago for five years before taking a job in Iowa. I'm more of a city person at heart, but I've made myself a home here. Whether I'll stay in Iowa for the rest of my life is an open question.

I have found that openness, honesty and kindness solve a lot of life's problems. I believe in continuous self improvement, but also in the importance of being happy with who you are right now.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a physicist for a university, but realistically most of what I do these days is more closely related to computing and data science. The job comes with quite a bit of travel, and I am still making up my mind whether that is a good or a bad thing.

After my IronMan last year I'm dialing back my athletic activity (at least for a while) and am focusing somewhat more on my dancing and other hobbies. At some point I was taking guitar lessons, maybe I start with those again.
I’m really good at
My job, for what I do, I'm one of the best in the world. I also regularly get admiration for my abilities as a cook, dancer or triathlete. Generally I'm also quite good at listening and advice.
Six things I could never do without
Assuming that the basics like food and shelter are already covered: My computer and the internet. Beyond that running and dancing. Not sure what else to add, six is a very large number. Maybe my phone and my iPod.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
way too many things. If I see a curious problem, I immediately start thinking about what would be the ideal solution for it. I really enjoy thinking about any kind of problem, be it work related, or philosophy or anything else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm willing to admit almost anything, but you at least have to ask.
You should message me if
you find me interesting. I think of myself as a kind and generous person, who always tries to do the right thing. I do not lie or play mind games, almost never raise my voice, and I am always open to compromise. I'd expect the same in a partner.

Apart from that you should have something in your life that you feel passionate about or can be proud of. You should no longer be living with your parents; and ideally you would have lived in another state at least once and have traveled abroad.
