In an ideal world, it all would have started with a small talk that you initiated about the book placed on my lap as we were sitting on a bench at a lush green park in the middle of the city. But this is the Internet, not really a place where romance is revered and love is sought-after. So as much as I would like to get this little tryst underway with a cute, little tete-a-tete, time is of the essence. So let’s get down to business by allowing me to give you a quick profile of myself.
Hi, I’m Jan. INFP. Individualist. Social Constructivist. I love meeting new people, exploring new places and interests. I’m into international politics, philosophy, psychology, economics, geopolitics, cinema and RPG. I love having intellectual conversations with interesting people and extremely hate small talk. I’m a romantic and would go far for love.
