At times my way of thinking can be a bit convoluted, probably because I tend to switch perspectives. To my way of thinking, the ability to differentiate between standpoints is underrated. Therefore, I prefer compromise over getting my way.
Oh, and I don't like being the center of attention. Better being the unknown power behind the throne than some poster boy. :-D
Well, I guess the saying "still waters run deep" applies best to my personality.
I've decided to give online dating another shot because although I've been self-dependent and quite content with that for quite a long time now, I'm starting to miss the intimacy a relationship can bring. Also, most of my friends are getting married and I feel kinda left out. :-)
It's not that I really crave a long-term relationship no matter what or that I have the compulsion to marry on the spot, but I hope to meet intelligent, interesting, charming, enchanting or in some other way special women to spend a good time together. Whether it ends in friendship, a fling or a true relationship, I'd appreciate it.
Right now I enjoy making sculptures out of stone.
Apart from that I like biking and swimming, visiting bars or going to concerts with friends and hanging out in parks / public places after a hot day with one or more cold ones, discussing everyday matters, personal problems or debating about a wide range of things.
And I've been told that I'm a good listener and in providing reasonably good advice. (No guarantees)
Oh, and sculpting. (Well, not really. I`m no artist, but usually the stuff looks like I intedet it to do).
However, I have the the suspicion that I seem overly serious.
I'm not that much into movies, regarding shows I like adult cartoons (e.g. Rick and Morty) and scifi and fantasy (e.g. farscape). And Dr Who. Absoulutedly thrilled for the new Season starring Jodie Whittaker.
Although music is quite important to me, I like too many styles to list them here. I tend to prefer harder, faster or darker styles like Metal, Punk, EBM or Hardcore-Techno.
Regarding favorite bands The Sisters of Mercy, Garbage, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Battlebeast and Scooter come to mind.
I really don't like R'n'b, Gangsta Rap / Hiphop and Volksmusik.
Ways to get rid of "concerned citizens" and their ilk.
Usually it ends in some cynical jokes, disillusion, the notion that there are just too many stupid people around and another beer.
I try to answer every message, even if it is only to say "sorry, not interested". I expect the same, 'cause I think every serious message is worth it.
