About Me




If there's something I'm definitely not, it's boring and ordinary. I'm open-minded but very fond of my own ways. I tend to be a bit eccentric but not at all in a freaky way, so don't be afraid, I'm perfectly friendly and sane.
I can be crazy and funny when expected to or quiet and unimposing when preferable.
Contrarily to what it might appear, I don't usually bite (unless somebody is really asking for it) and I'm always happy to meet new people.
I don't have an extremely high opinion of myself either, so I won't write here how great I am. But humility is not my favourite word.
I'm gay and (kind of) goth, but if you expect other stereotypical behaviours here, you may be disappointed.

I love traveling and meeting new people, there's never too much adventure. I love discussing different subjects and Couchsurfers usually prove to be very good partners for conversation.

I'm generally a lazy person, but full of energy. I sleep long, but do things very quickly. I'm very polite and respect other people's privacy and rules, so you won't have problems with me. And since more than two years I do yoga all the time (currently Ashtanga nearly daily).


Be guided by your own desires, be sure those are really your own.
