This is ultimately about creating new moments. What I'm looking for is someone who is inspired, creative and uninhibited. Ideally what I'm looking for is the normal type of interaction that I would have with a good friend but +2. This summer I've taken an increased focus on fitness and started yoga to complement my cycling. I'm also exploring healthy eating/cooking. So if you have any good quinoa recipes, I'm all ears.
This quote in particular resonates with me. "Always recognize that human individuals are ends, and do not use them as means to your end."
~ I'd like to meet someone who is a combination of fun, intelligent and sensitive. It matters that you are by nature curious. I'm not particularly into a type of person but the more fiery the better. As it stands I spend a fair amount of time training so I do have a developed taste for people who are active and healthy.
There are too many people with intangible, agreeable sounding interests on this site. In the end, it doesn't explain anything about who they are. How are you unique? Is there something about you that sticks out? I'm looking for more exciting than normal, I'm sure you are too or otherwise you would be folding laundry now and/or watching TV.
For example... Next time I travel I want to spend it doing something more exciting than touristing. Maybe it would be to attend a special conference about something. Many countries offer 3 week intensive language courses in their major cities. Maybe an epic bike ride across some coastal mountains in Norway. (Actually I've only been spending vacation time to race but this is what I'd like to do with someone special)
Yes I've traveled. (Probably 12 months out of country) Not outside of Europe but I managed to pick up limited competence in Swedish. My level of French can be considered fluent in practical terms but it does need work. Last summer I read “L'Etranger“ by Camus in french. I confirmed that I pretty well grasped it by reading the english translation. On the other hand Nausee by Sartre is giving me trouble.
disclaimer: I'm not perfect, I make mistakes, prejudge people, complain about my weight, fail to make a difference in a meaningful way, forget to return phone calls, have unrealistic expectations of myself and others.... but try my best.
Too shy to contact me?
Just add me as a favourite and if I'm interested I'll contact you. The ball can be in your court if you decide.
Make sure you give me a way to look a pics. It's a bit awkward asking for them. I can't stress enough that you must declare tangible interests for me to contact you.
I like the idea of creating culture rather than consuming it. I'd rather try to cook something new rather than go out.
Rebar cookbook for a 2nd date if there's chemistry. Jogging? I'm trying to improve my french conversation skills. So if you're looking for some practice I'm interested.
