My self-summary
Greetings, online traveler. I'm here looking for adventure, beauty, romance. Or something like that.

You'll find in me someone who …
… likes to attend hacker camps and hippie conferences.
… has a great love for the history of cinema, and often hosts movie nights.
… occasionally dances to exhaustion.
… enjoys discussing books on history, anthropology, language.
… cautiously experiments with psychedelics.
… is patient, and seldom gets angry.
… very casually plays Magic: The Gathering.

I'm interested in sharing tenderness, perversion, and folly. I like holding hands, guro porn, and watching silly stuff together. I fancy cute faces, intellectualism, and worldly curiosity. I'm turned off by big lips and skin conditions, and some piercings give me body horror. Genital interaction is low on my list of erotic passions. My ideal date is a walk through the park, or strolling through the city.

Some more data points you can use to filter me in our out
====================================

I'm self-employed as a freelance programmer, but I've also written a book or two on political/cultural issues of the digital age, worked as a film critic, and done some futurological seminars.

I enjoy eating non-maritime meat, but can also happily live off vegan Küfa cuisine for extended periods of time. I'm a very picky eater, though. For some reason, you can chase me away with offals and food that comes out of the sea.

I have a tent and a backpack, and enjoy using them once in a while (but am no jungle survivalist). I want do to more traveling, and visit the museums of far-away historical sites.

I don't consider myself religious, but feel no resentment towards religiosity per se. (Having grown up in a very secular East Berlin environment, where churches had a recent history as havens for left-wing dissidents and punk concerts, my atheist contacts with religiosity were rather benign. Maybe I've just been lucky never to have suffered under powerful dogmatisms of faith. In any case, the result is that I'm more often annoyed by Dawkins- than by Bible-thumpers.)

I'm a vi user, but I tolerate emacs users.

I have some affinity towards avantgardy non-vocal repetitive music, from techno to Philip Glass. My knowledge of musical pop culture is superficial at best; I can dance to it if it has a beat. I'm very slowly teaching myself to play keyboard (and improvise easy Glass imitations :D), and once every few years I try to compose something on my computer.

I can barely drive the bicycle (only when there's no traffic to fear), and cars (outside of GTA) not at all.

I'm not much of an activist, but a lot of my political thinking broadly fits into lefty, anarchist, socialist-libertarian categories – maybe with a sprinkle of Californian Ideology, as I half-seriously entertain extropianist/singularitarianist ideas. You better don't count on me for allyship or solidarity, as I can be quite a coward and self-minded in a petty-bourgeois way. I rarely get passionate in political arguments, but I find it hard to tolerate disdain for sex work, picking on the poor, hate against pedophiles, and praise of the police.

I'm undecided and lazy about my beard growth. I shave the thing away completely every few weeks, and then let it re-grow until I find it irritating again.

Practical dating considerations
===================

I'm not here looking for penpals, but for face-to-face meetings, and I'll try to steer most conversations quickly to the point of arranging those.

The amount of free time available to me varies greatly from week to week. In any case, I try to keep the work out of my weekends and evenings, and usually can afford to stay up late without worrying about any clock ringing early in the morning. When my workload is heavy, I prefer to keep my social appointments during the week after 9pm, otherwise I'm very flexible. Most Thursdays I host a private 8pm screening of episodes from the TV shows *Hercules* and *Xena*, to which I gladly invite anyone interested.

I'm a cheapskate when it comes to going out: I prefer activities that don't require spending money. When meeting for drinks, I usually order one glass of water for the whole evening.

Since I don't drink alcohol, I can be unfairly un-tipsy opposite people who do.

Do message me if you'd like to get to know me: I smile about every message I get that doesn't look like spam, even if it's just a "hi", and will most probably answer it sooner or later.
