Hey! I'm Charlie! No games, no rubbish, I just want to find true love. Nothing temporary. "Yeah they all say that..." Sceptical? Think I'm lying through my teeth? Take a shot! I am like a book, there is no ambiguity. It either works or it does not. I will not play with anyone's heart, I know too well how it feels.
Hobbies: Bicycle, mountain skiing, running, serious photography enthusiast (Nikon, Leica M6), cars (german ones mostly), dining, wine tasting, music (ALL sorts of music!) I have a university degree in music.
Goals: Balanced humans generally want to be happy. I am a balanced human. I want to be happy. Easy, right? Not always easy... Road to happiness is often unpaved and way too often we are lazy and pick the wrong stones. I want to become better at choosing the right stones, a little bit more, every day. Enjoying what I already have (health, an income, gorgeous summer sunsets...) and trying to build on that to make it better... over a life-time.
Unique? Well we all are different, aren't we? Some of us get along with each other quite well, some less. It is hard to explain in words how different we are without being able to be there in person. I believe that I am, who I am. Authentic. A bit secret at times. Patient. Quiet. Calm. But I do have my moments of excitement. Strong desire to communicate. Oh! Here's one thing! I hate how people often treat other people like consumers goods, especially when it comes down to relationships: they take what's good, then, when it doesn't work anymore, they put everything into the garbage! The End. I tend to repair things when they are broken, —not literally because I am a terrible handyman, first strike, ok, alright!— but because a person you care about should be treated as such! So, why not try to TALK when something's wrong?
I'm rather passionate about what I love do to in life. Whether be my hobbies, or people I care about. I tend to "overspoil" because I like to share what I have. I like my moments spent alone but I also tend to like devote a lot of my time to the person I love. Complicity is a big thing for me. When you do things that are never crazy enough (nothing bad or illegal!) with your loved one and you feel like there is no end to laughing about it together, you know you're with the right person.
I don't like bitter people, those who are bickering all the time, those who unconsciously focus on the negative side of everything. Life IS fun! So find what's good in it, and enjoy it!
Enough said. I like writing don't I? Sorry! Don't think that I am this kind of person who is an unstoppable (and intolerable) chat. I only wrote this text so you can have an idea of who I am — in the end, because POF asked me to :) I am a good guy. Write to me if you are interested in knowing someone different. :)
"Invisible women" needn't apply unless a photograph is provided. I do respect your desire for privacy, but I just happened to have been born with two functional eyes and for many of us humans, love cannot exist without at least some sort of physical attraction. I am pretty sure it works the other way around for you ladies.
Oh! Last thing (honest). Proper grammar and spelling go a long way. British spelling haters need not lapidate me (ref: apologiSe and sCeptical used above) ;)
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something simple. A coffee shop, a movie at the cinema (if you are afraid of lacking words, or you are shy), a drink in a relatively quiet place. I don't like to yell.
