About Me Though sometimes extroverted and outgoing on the outside, I am really an introvert, I enjoy 121 conversations of substance, I like to spend time reading, hiking with my dogs, watching movies or just watching the sunset on a sunny autumn day. And, I love the sound of sea waves on a beach, the squaking of seagulls or the sound of fire crackling...

I am a good listener and dependable and loyal friend. I am quite serious-minded, down-to-earth and intense but I know how to enjoy and appreciate the simple things in life, I like to have a good laugh, I have sense of humor and like getting to know new things.

I am interested in psychology, sociology, photography, film, theater, world politics.

I divide my spare time between animal welfare work, hiking or swimming, spending time with my friends, reading and theater-going. I love taking a good long hike with my dogs or go for a swim after a long day of work, sometimes a good book, movie (mainly documentaries and independent movies, though I've seen Iron Man 3 also :)), or a good theater play does the trick.

Oh, and I like music too..the selection depends on the mood but I hardly ever say no to Damien Rice, Leo Cohen, Keith Jarrett or Placebo. Also, I find instrumentals by Mihaly Vig, Clint Mansell, Abel Korzeniowski or Ennio Morricone hard to resist.

I also like to travel...I've been to most European countries, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, I lived and traveled in the U.S. and enjoyed it all as it's been a great learning experience.

I am a believer in animal and human rights and have been an ethical vegetarian for 16 years. I firmly believe that awareness and education are key to tolerance and personal development.

I've volunteered in animal and homeless shelters since high-shool. For over 3 years now, I've been running my own small animal shelter in my spare time (I have a full time job in banking). On top of providing shelter to strays, we provide work opportunities to homeless people who receive moderate wages and sometimes shelter in return.

Furthermore, we focus on educational activities and work with elementary schools to promote volunteerism and integrate animal welfare as part of the curriculum.

I value sincerity, thoughtfulness and dependability and offer the same. I always dig beneath the surface for substance and character in whatever type of relationship.

I relate to somewhat introverted and philosophical-minded people of firm character and principles with an open mind and inner gentleness who are perceptive, reflective, thoughtful, sincere and socially aware. I hold special respect for people actively involved in a cause that helps others (people, animals, environment..) not just concerned with themselves and their own needs.

I don't get along well with superficial or overly assertive, loud, impulsive, insensitive, narrow-minded, indifferent and forceful people with me-first attitude, lack of respect for others, lack of empathy and backbone.
