Languages are my passion, at the moment the French language is in the works. Never had anyone to have a real use for it..German and Swedish on moderate level with some more languages on starter level..
My 'hobbies' are usually related to everyday functions, I love woodworking, enjoy fixing the old house. Sewing new clothes for myself or fixing/tuning old, painting with oils or drawing, reading, learning new. Exercise is seldom an activity itself for me, taking care of my forest with my chainsaw is the best gym, and rowing across the half a kilometer bay to 'my' island for a swim from its rocky shores keeps the body in good shape.. though not available now!
When talking over long distances, Skype helps to 'meet' each other almost as in a real face to face date. That should happen pretty soon after some correspondence has shown there is a MUTUAL spark .. waiting to be ignited. Video 'date' is a great time saving way to connect, to SEE quite fast if there is any mutual interest worth continuing the dialog. Life is too short to spend on 'maybe some day' for years. Done that, never again.
Dishonesty, cheaters, liars, scammers. Btw the site shows your true time zone with a message. That rules out plenty fakes. Very cool.
Childfree only, please. It never works, no sense trying.. Smoking and heavy drinking are bad signs for health reasons. Religion, ANY, is a major turn off.
And tRumpists, no way. I could never get along with someone who supports such blatant disregard to core values in protecting our environment.. or in human rights. Letting his cronies get away with murder, literally, apparently NOTHING being more important than MONEY. Journalists now free game to kill all over the world. Gets my hackles up.
