some facts about you

So a lot of people here seem to judge others solely by their opinions here and act as if they know everything about you based on opinions you may have.
got me thinking, most of the time you only really see opinions from people on here and not so much people themselves giving a insight into them personally.
so care to share some facts about yourself here?

I will start
English is not my native language.

moved countries when i was 6 years old

I have 3 jobs. Security, merchandizing and brewing Mead.

I live in a small town

I have 2 brothers and one sister

My parents are still happily married

Grew up extremely poor

Cut off most of family

used to travel back home to Norway yearly but with the price increase of everything gone up. That is not really doable anytime soon, havent lived there since i was 6 yet still get homesick.

alright well that might be enough

Here goes...

English is my first language and some days I do good to speak it...i can also speak a little Spanish.

I live in Indiana not to be confused with the country India (yes people confuse the two).

I have only had 4 jobs my entire life. I manage orders for over 650 stores for a pet supplies distribution center. Not to mention logistics planning where i have to figure out how to fit 10 lbs of shit in a 5lb pail then figure out what to do with the rest. I have a very demanding career filled with chaos. On the weekends i sometimes work a side hustle delivering groceries for extra cash.

I live in a small town with 2200 people. I moved hear for safety reasons.

I have 2 brothers one is deceased the other is an addict. I have one sister who is very sick with cancer.

My parents are deceased. One week before fathers day in 2007 my dad committed suicide and the week before Christmas my mama died of brain cancer.

I grew up poor and the things i have today are things i worked hard to get. I have 4 kids. I typically don't mention them much for their own safety.

I have been bullied most my life. I have an obsessed stalker that runs me off social media sites. I tend to put myself down a lot because i got use to hearing I was nothing and not good enough and nobody would ever care about me. Seven years of that takes its toll.

I have a southern accent and a country girl but have been put down for that too. I actually took classes to hide my accent.

I love to make people laugh...i do this because I never want anyone to feel as extremely sad as i do on a daily basis sometimes

@LilPrincess God put you into my life as a friend for a reason. Life is not fair. You have had more than your share of tragedy. I think the world of you and if you need anything, just shout out. I am here for you.
LilPrincess · 41-45, F
@akindheart I am a firm believer that people come into our lives for a reason.

What hasn't killed me has made me stronger and the person I am now

I am thankful to have you as a friend

I feel like I’ve said most of this in responses to other posts, but maybe not all in one place:

I live in a very small, rural town in Michigan. It’s only a couple of miles from where I grew up.

I have 5 boys, ranging in age from 22-3 years old.

I’m a former middle school science teacher, but now I’m a stay at home mom to my youngest boys.

I love animals. I have 4 dogs, 2 inside cats, and 6 guinea pigs.

My dad passed away a few years ago from lung cancer. My mom is currently battling stage IV metastatic breast cancer. They divorced when I was in elementary school, but I had a very happy childhood.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@QueenOfTheNerds i didn't know any of that about you, so its nice to know a bit more about you.

do you like where you live now?

wow 5 boys, i bet they keep you busy. I cant even imagine having five. One is hard enough as it is haha

animal lover, very cool.

really sorry to hear about your parents and I hope your mom gets better real soon :(
QueenOfTheNerds · 41-45, F
I do like it here, but I would love to eventually live somewhere really remote.
5 [i]is[/i] a lot. They drive me crazy and keep me sane. There’s never a dull moment, that’s for sure.
PerfectionOfTheHeart · 46-50, F
I don’t like how easy it is for that to happen. The mind does have this way of creating shortcuts to save time and energy though. It just sucks that ripping away the layers that make us unique, complex, and beautifully interesting beings is one of the shortcuts it takes.

English is my native language even though the redneck tries like hell to showcase how powerful it’s influence is.

Was kidnapped by my mother at a very early age. Was found by my father thanks to the help of a P.I. and we quickly fled the town her entire family lived in. We moved around a lot after that due to fear that they would find us.

Grew up very isolated and close to my dad who picked up odd jobs to make ends meet. Stood in lines often for free food and clothing. That whole chapter shaped me greatly, in good and bad ways.

At the age of 21. with gratitude and compassion for everything he did to protect me, i broke free of the physical and mental prison I had been confined to to finally begin living my life. Met a great man. We’ve been together for 24 years and have three kids.

My mom passed in ‘91 after years-long complications from multiple gun shoot wounds from a jealous lover who ended up taking his own life. My dad, who I was still very close to, passed in 2013 after complications from open heart surgery.

My husband tracked down my mother’s family, but due to extremely high toxicity levels I’ve lost touch with all them. Have lost touch with my father’s side as well because we were all never really that big into staying close. My only family is now my husband and kids and honestly, we like it that way.

My current town is small enough for most to know who I am when they see me. That sounds comforting, but oftentimes it’s not.

I have my seasonal restaurant job being a thing next month. A more prestigious role with more stress for little pay, and a possible cancer diagnosis and vision problems looming overhead as I try to tackle the idea of it. The depression and anxiety that were an everyday battle is more of a daily war now because of all of that. But one of the good takeaways from the early chapter of my life is that despite the difficulties and uncertainties I’m thankful and grateful just to be here right now, loved and cared for by the precious few who make the dark days bright enough for me to not succumb fully to the darkness that has followed me my entire life.
PerfectionOfTheHeart · 46-50, F
@akindheart 🙏🏻. Yeah. It’s been an interesting life, if nothing else.
@PerfectionOfTheHeart You’ve the most beautiful voice on SW….I think if you ever start a YT channel or podcast, you’ll be v popular.

Love you, Perfection…you’re a precious friend and I always treasure our friendship. 😘🤗💝
akindheart · 61-69, F
@PerfectionOfTheHeart I understand you a little bit better now.

English is my fourth language (after Flemish, Dutch and French), and I understand German too.

My dad had MS when I was a child but gets through the pain for about forty years now. It did mark my upbringing heavily. But staying at my maternal grandparents was heaven too.

Got sexually abused by an aunt when I was a child. Shouldn't have happened, but bad things are happening each day.

I have dyslexia but consider it only yet another barrier to get through each day.

I was an onely child in a small village. My mom adored me but she died ten years ago now after a brief illness of six months. That's when I returned to churchgoing.

Have a job at the local library that I chose because I'm contributing to my community. Been working there for over a quarter of century already.

Got myself a history degree in my 40s.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@val70 oh okay yep i know what that is. Sorry, I didnt catch on when referred to as MS. I dont know what that would have been like but i imagine a rough thing to see a parent or loved one go through for sure.

damn, haha this whole time i been thinking a job at the library would be this chill relaxed job. It has always sounded amazing to me. That is ruined now 😆
val70 · 51-55
@Torsten Sorry! 😁
Torsten · 36-40, M
@val70 all good, I will just toss out the application haha
English is my native language.
I was born in London, UK, to Australian parents, and arrived in Australia on my first birthday.
I'm now 66, married, and living on rural land in the subtropics, Tweed, NSW.

I've had numerous unskilled jobs,
was a sculptor and art teacher for 20 years,
dabbled in psychology and counselling,
then shifted into breeding and training Arabian horses -
a big financial mistake.
Now I mostly care for the land, ride, read, and write.

My parents have both died. Their marriage was not a happy one.

Grew up affluent, but parents were alcoholic and profoundly dysfunctional.

I have one sister, cut off. There are no other relatives.

I studied and travelled abroad a great deal when young, but have stayed put in Australia since. Can no longer afford travel.

I've only ever met one person from Norway, a girl in my year at school. She was beautiful, intelligent, pleasant, quiet and very reserved.

Thank you for initiating this thread.
I look forward to seeing the replies.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@hartfire damn you been in a bit of variety career wise. shame the breeding horses didnt work out but at least you gave it a go.
have you ever gone back to London?
yeah i am with you on no longer affording travel. Its rather ridiculous at this point
@Torsten Yes, I did get back to London. Did my BA at St Martins School of Art.
Loved the city in many ways - its cosmopolitan nature, the old architecture, the library of the School of African and Oriental Studies, the parks and museums, and particular spots that became favourites.

If I could afford to travel, I'd love to go by sailboat, and overland on foot, by bicycle, or where possible on horse or camel - any method that wouldn't add to global warming.
Spanish is my main language

I'm very private about my personal life and very few know me in depth

I get quite anxious some days and others I get depressed but for the most part I feel good.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@SW-User thats cool and understandable about being private and not letting others know you in depth, especially on here

sorry to hear about your anxiety and depression. I am glad you feel good for the most part though
Livingwell · 61-69, M
@SW-User And you are a very sweet lady..
English is my only language, although I know a tiny bit of Spanish and Hebrew.

I have about 25 tattoos

I’ve always been an extrovert and people lover my whole life, but after having Covid twice, my entire personality has changed drastically and I am an introvert and a loner now, and am happiest when I’m all alone, away from people in real life.

I’m the only one living in my family- parents, husband, and siblings already dead. No kids either.

I consider myself asexual, but used to be demisexual.

I love art of all kinds.

I like any kind of music except for hard rap or whatever it’s called.

I have a lot of things on my bucket list but probably won’t do any of them in this lifetime.

I’m a firm believer in karma and reincarnation. I grew up Christian, converted to Judaism, and now consider myself more “ spiritual “

I have lots of health problems and really have NO life because of them.

I work full time as a cashier and go to the gym every single day.
@Torsten I have a few favorites. A lotus on my left wrist, and a bird of paradise on my left breast, and a peacock feather on my right thigh.

Demisexual is when you have absolutely no sexual desire for someone until you have feelings for them.

My bucket list is mostly places I’d like to travel to. Israel, New York, Mardi Gras in New Orleans. I’d also like to go skydiving and do GoApe obstacle course.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Mardrae sounds like some great tattoos

ohh okay. I have never heard of that before

I hope one day you get to go to those places and skydiving. GoApe obstacle course would be great to do i reckon.
@Torsten yeah, there’s so many new sexual labels these days- I don’t know most of them, but demisexual really resonates with how I have always been, although now I am more asexual. There’s another interesting label called Sapiosexual which means that a person is turned on by intelligence.
English is my first language. I live in a very tiny town of only 450 people in Missouri. My parents are deceased. I have 2 older sisters.
Have 2 kids. One of my kids is non-verbal with Autism. I work for a company that lets me set my own hours. I'm very fortunate.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Bexsy that is good. Also good you're close to one of your sisters at least.
very cool.
I would ask you more about the autism but i dont ever like to pry and you know a lot of people are not comfortable talking about their children here, understandably.
My son has Autism also
@Torsten it's ok. I don't mind. It's my daughter that has Autism. She is very good with writing down a word. Or typing it. That's how we communicate. She's Also excellent with computers
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Bexsy how old is she?
that is great she is good with writing down a word and or typing it in a computer.
revenant · F
Alright..English is not my first language , French is.
I have moved an awful lot. I am now in Canada after life in Europe, Asia, Australia.
I am going to have to move agggggggaaain and I am so tired of it.
I am not looking forward to moving back to Europe.
My mother is crazy.
I have recently been reacquainted with my brother and I shall see where that goes but not expecting too much.
@revenant Wow! That's hard actually. Where in Asia will you move if had an opportunity?
TheStarsareout · 56-60, M
I was born and grew up in England

I have worked for the British forces as a soldier and a civilian from 17 years old to present, I am 60 this year.
I have lived in Germany since the age of 17 and after Brexit took up dual citizenship to make things easier.

I am at present a procurement manager, I never really wanted to hold management positions because I always saw you had to change and be serious, I was always asked if I wanted to move up into positions, I said yes on the thinking if I make a mistake your fault you asked me 😂

I have had four fathers and three mothers so thats a long story and the reason why I joined the Army at aged 17

I live in a village which is in-between a town and a city which I like.

I have three grown up children who are like my best friends, lots of making jokes at each other.

I love laughing every day and making others laugh, I laugh at my own jokes lol
helmi · 46-50, F
I do not share most of my personal opinions.

I choose to observe most of the time, letting others freely advocate their positions without revealing mine. This has helped me to develop more insight into many types of personalities. (and to get along for the sake of getting along; i don't need to be right)

I believe most people simply want to be heard and/or achieve validation from others. Expressing opinions seems to be the way to gain that validation. There seems to be a prevailing mentality of "If you agree with me then you are good and if you don't then I will attack you." Remaining silent has its advantages.

Of course, this has contributed to many superficial relationships because while I intently listen to someone vent their frustrations regarding emotionally charged topics such as politics, gender issues, and so on, I may be making personal judgements (we all do) and deciding to avoid or attempt to become closer to that individual.


Resident of Texas.
Youngest of three children (2 older brothers)
I have two children (the youngest will soon be 18)
My dad is a retired Methodist minister who now has dementia.
Majoring in psychology at a local university.
I am divorced from an abusive alcoholic.
My favorite color os cobalt blue.
Hiking/camping/outdoorsy stuff excites me.
I find most humans to be extremely shallow and quite frankly, boring.
I hope to graduate from Earth this lifetime.
Not interested in hurting others.
I play trumpet, piano, and have gone to school for audio engineering.
Ryannnnnn · 31-35, M
Okie Dokes

I've moved 12 times and never stayed in one place my whole life, soon to be 13. I don't sound like I'm from anywhere except vaguely British and kinda southern, so I don't "belong" anywhere.

I was a late starter due to childhood traumas, depression and anxiety, turned my life around at 25.

I draw, paint, write music, anything creative. I bought a skateboard in Portugal and learnt how to skate for a few years, know a little bit of Muay Thai and some BJJ. I have 2 big tattoos and a smaller one on my arms.

I've worked as a chef in one of the busiest resteraunts in my city, broken 4 bones, my forearm, rib, collar bone and thumb. Had broken teeth from getting jumped at the age of 19, had a brick to the head. I have a scar on my forehead from a nail getting stuck in my head as a toddler (it was an accident).

I lost my uncle to suicide last year, my grandfather and father to cancer several years ago.

I've been to many different countries, probably seen about 100 bands, I've met and worked with people who used to be slaves, and who've been shot in the head and lived. I've gained a lot of wisdom in my life.

Im looking to be a counseller, I'm not sure what I'm doing atm but I'm at peace with that. Kinda wanna build and fix things, be a pianist, work in nature, figuring it out as I go atm.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Ryannnnnn damn near 13 time moving. That sounds a bit rough especially when not feeling like you belong anywhere. I hope that changes for ya

by turn your life around, do you mean not having depression and anxiety anymore or as much now?

wow you been through a lot of shit. A lot of battle scars from the sounds of it.
how did you like being a chef?
I did that for awhile and it ruined any enjoyment i had for cooking. Hope it was a different experience for you

sorry to hear bout your family members

fav band you have seen live?

figuring out a career as you go about things is a good way to go i reckon. best of luck with it all
Rutterman · 46-50, M
Okay, a few facts about me:

I was born in New York City, but mostly grew-up in North Carolina, Texas, and Washington state.

Music is my passion. I gravitate toward classic rock and pop, Motown, disco, and bossa nova, but I like almost all genres of music to some degree.

Was an indifferent student growing up and earned mediocre grades, but I thrived in college and have earned a bachelor's and a master's degree.

My immediate biological family is disappearing. My father died many years ago and two of my four siblings are gone now.

I have one niece and two nephews and I think the world of them. I pray they stay safe and healthy and outlive me by many years.
CrazyMusicLover · 31-35
English is not my native language

I live in Central Europe

I have a master's degree

I overshare but not this time
caPnAhab · 26-30, M
Thanks for sharing. Yeah it's easy to judge harshly on a site like this when all we have are words instead of actions. Anyways, I'll go on

- I was born and raised in the Usa. I've also lived in New Zealand for one year

- I've always wanted to be a geologist or a professional musician. Now I can't decide which one to make a hobby

- I work as kitchen staff at a bakery/cafe, where I also have experience as a bread baker

- I also have an interest in botany

- I have collections of books, movies and videogames but never have time to finish them all

- I believe I have a strong sense of individuality
Torsten · 36-40, M
@caPnAhab how did you find New Zealand to be? like did you enjoy living there?

maybe you could make both things a hobby?

any fav book, movie or videogame that you have yet to finish haha?
caPnAhab · 26-30, M
@Torsten NZ was a good experience. The thing that tripped me up was the flipped seasons.

As for hobbies, it's difficult to divide my attention. Which is also why I can't seem to finish any new videogame campaigns lol.

Anyways, I don't click very well with the newest of games. But the series new to me I need to finish is Half Life. It's come close to my all time favorite which is Halo
ArmyOfOne · F
Okie dokie, here goes...

English and some Spanish because I live in the south.
Specifically, I lived in Texas all my life. I've explored every town and city on my downtime, really digging into the town or city's history! You can find some creepy and cool sheeeAt here. Lol
Now, I reside in a small town. I'm not a city person, and this town is a nice balance of country and urban life.
I did briefly live in Oklahoma City for two weeks a long time ago when I was abducted by a family member.

Family are mostly cut off except for my brother and mother. Though, my mom is more at an arm's length.
Grew up on both sides of the spectrum. One point, my family was wealthy and then the next we had to go to a food bank and refinance the house....which either way was still b.s.. I didn't benefit like a greedy s.o.b. other than having a roof over my head. I supported myself living with them, and when I couldn't, mental abuse was usually involved.

I do have my own family now. Got a wife of four years and two four-legged kids. She's a Mental Health Technician working in a hospital and she's going on to becoming a radiologist. My two kids are really two dogs. One is half Pyrenees/Anatolian shepherd and the other is half German shepherd/something that could be a sort of terrier like the German terrier or pitbull.

I've done all sorts of work between retail, automotive mechanical work, corrections at a juvenile detention facility and other security work. Right now, I'm currently unemployed, but I'm going through additional schooling into a trade. I'll be welding certified and doing work related to such and then as my own business I'll be blacksmithing! Right now I'm just learning as much as I can and building my business model.

I like going to the lakes and fishing around here. One of these days, I'm going to clear out all these littered beer cans/bottles from the lakes and incorporate them into my business. My way of doing what's right to the wildlife that live there while making an extra buck.
English is my native language

I am very private for the most part

I am originally from New York

I've lived in UK for three years then moved back to US

I've had different careers because I have so much I want to do and experience

I work with special needs children . I love what I do. This has been by far my favorite career move .

I have one child...

I lost my Dad when I was a teenager

My Mom is still around ...

I'm not close to my family but see them every once in a while

@Torsten ya tranny
Icedsky · 46-50, M
Nice to meet you Torsten
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Icedsky you too mate
Yeah, okay, fine.

English is my native language, specifically American English. I used to be conversationally fluent in Spanish, but I fell out of practice.

People ask me if I've lived in the US my whole life. I usually answer, "Not yet..." More specifically, because it is a huge country, I live in the Pacific northwest. Sherwood, Oregon, to be exact. Probably about 20 or so miles from where I was born.

I've had one job that wasn't in the employ of my father. I didn't do so great. Not for the reason most people assume, but because workplace politics. I was a security guard at a car battery plant, and the company wanted to put all old people on the shift I was working. No idea what Grandma or Grandpa are going to do in the event of an emergency, but whatever. These days, I'm basically a personal assistant for my dad. I help him manage his properties and his diabetes.

I've lived in relatively small towns my whole life.

I'm adopted. My parents were going to adopt another child, but I started displaying signs of behavioral disorders when I was quite young.

Grew up relatively well off. Middle class, I guess you'd say.

Most of my family cut me off after I went to prison. My parents are the exception. They let me move back in with them, which is why I feel obligated to help my dad.

Only other country I've ever been to is Canada. Been there twice, and if they let felons expatriate there, I might. It's absolutely beautiful.

You didn't mention your religion in this post, but I already know it from having read your bio, so it's only fair that I share mine.

I grew up nominally Christian, meaning my mom made us go to church until I was old enough to kind of stop going. I lapsed and basically became an agnostic atheist for a while. In 2001, a cousin of mine convinced me to try Christianity again. He inadvertently fooled me, because as I was going through the prayer with him, he got excited and started putting out huge waves of joyous energy. I assumed the feeling I got was Yahweh welcoming me to his fold. While I was in prison, I studied a lot. I read the Bible three times clear through, and then started reading about some of the specific books of the Bible. What I came away with was that it was a cobbled-together collection of mythology, some of which was older than Judaism, let alone Christianity, so I started attending Wiccan services. Right now, you could call me an eclectic neopagan with Wiccan leanings, but it's still just a tad more complicated. I've reached the conclusion that the gods as we understand them are all egregores, energy beings created either deliberately or inadvertently by a group of people. That's why they need the prayers of the faithful. They quite literally feed on them.
[quote]wow you are actually a very interesting person. clearly shows I was wrong about you in a lot of cases but that is where assumptions normally get us instead of actually listening to that person.
My apologies for that.[/quote]
[quote]how did you find working for your father?
You sound like a good son being there for him and taking care of him[/quote]
He can be a very difficult boss. He's a micromanager, and it seems sometimes like he changes his mind every two seconds.

Wouldn't trade it for the world, and I'll kill anyone who tries to hurt him.
[quote]how long were you in prison?[/quote]
Couple of years, for trying to sell cannabis to an off-duty police officer. 🤦‍♂️
[quote]what a dumb thing for a family to cut someone off for, no offence[/quote]
Yeah... I wasn't that close with most of them, though.
[quote]yes i dont ever normally bring up my religious views because I am a firm believer of not throwing that in others faces or anything of that nature. They're my own beliefs and views and i keep them as such[/quote]
Which is exactly why I usually don't share them unless asked. But I will argue all day with Christians who don't have enough sense to keep their faith and let others keep theirs.
@LordShadowfire I really really like your beliefs about gods being egregores. I totally relate.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@LordShadowfire Your father sounds a lot like mine. I used to work for him for a short run when he bought a restaurant. One of the worst jobs I have ever had. Maybe its just my family but working with family was a nightmare.
that is good despite what you said, that you would not change it for the world. Again you sound like a good son.

to a off duty police officer? haha talk about bad luck
that sucks

meh your family's loss in that case, not yoursit y

I would never have guessed you were religious. Good job keeping that behind doors so to speak.
I used to do the same thing with Christians like that, but truly is just a waste of time. I dont have the patience with them anymore
Dainbramadge · 56-60, M
I already knew that about you because I saw a comment you made one time 31/2 months ago.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@Dainbramadge you keeping track of me? that is a specific thing to remember. I will chck on that since i dont even remember that 🤔
English is my first language

I have traveled, but never lived outside of the US.

I have had a few careers. Teaching is what I love most.

I grew up in a city of 250,000. I now live in a city of more than 6 million.

My parents and sibling are deceased

My family didn’t have a lot of money, although I was never aware of it.

I never got along with my family.

@SW-User Murka?
With people I know a bit and trust, I could tell some things. Here, with many who don't like me and wide open internet.... I think I'll stick to very basic.
My parents are both dead.
As a child, my family was considered quite poor but I never realized that since I was happy... I evidently forgot the really hard times I have been reminded of.
I'm a single mom. I love children. :)
I know more than people seem to think I do.... I've learned things in different lines of work that others discount because I'm not in some top tier job to be credited with.
Torsten · 36-40, M
@SW-User sorry to hear about your parents.
its weird aye when you hear about most people who grew up quite poor, we all really say the same thing and that is we were happy and never really thought of it at the time.
sounds like we have a bit in common actually, like with being single parents and so on.

You sound like a very interesting person for sure
@Torsten Thank you...it's okay about my parents. It's been a long time. I still miss my mom at times...but not my dad.

The good thing about my children is my youngest is now an adult and will be 20 in a few months. :)

I suppose some might find me and my life interesting while others may find me tame and boring. lol
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
Sure, why not.

My grandad was Nahua from Durango, Mexico. My dad wasn't raised by him though, because he was an illegitimate child, the result of infidelity. My step grandad treated him like shit, despite my grandad himself cheating on his often. My mom's side is mostly Irish, with some Scottish.

My dad struggled to work up from packing boxes at a supermarket to eventually being area manager of a bank. He studied at night. Before he passed, he got his master's in political science.

He was sadly himself abusive and left my mum for another woman when she was still pregnant with me. He left us basically nothing. So we grew up dirt poor.

Despite having OCD and ADHD, I did alright in school. At a stage I considered studying law, but I couldn't live with the idea of potentially defending rapists and pedos. So I went into computers instead, having had a love of it since I was a kid and playing video games.

I'm now a front-end developer. I enjoy building stuff like interfaces, helping people with accessibility issues, designing, etc.

Hobbies wise, I've been playing guitar since I was 12. Kenny Hickey from Type O Negative inspired me to pickup the guitar. I play mostly metal, but I play other instruments and music like bass, vihuela and duduk. I have a passion for traditional music, especially Armenian and Mexican music.

I also brew beer, cider and mead. I love bowling, pool and darts. All the traditional pub games. I still play video games too. I've recently gotten back into weightlifting, with a focus on powerlifting.

I shared 100 facts about me 😌 https://similarworlds.com/self/about-me/2372615-I-love-feet-Female-feet-Especially-their-toes-But

But here is a few quick ones:

* Dutch is my native language
* I have been to 30 countries in my life
* I am an atheïst, nihilist, pacifist, nudist, introverted loner
* I am well educated and have a good, albeit not very exciting, job
* I work to live, not the other way around. I am not ambitious or career driven at all
* I have moved a lot in my life and will almost certainly move again
* I don't ONLY like feet
* I don't like ALL feet

@Torsten No I definitely still travel. Have a big trip to the USA planned. What is your favorite country?
Torsten · 36-40, M
@FeetAreFantastic I am and yeah that is a site to behold for sure. I havent travelled to a wide variety of places like you have but i think i can safely say there is nothing like experiencing it in person

@FeetAreFantastic that is good. I have been to Norway (obviously), USA and Australia.
I am biased, my fav country is Norway.
USA I had a great time there though and Australia is great depending on where you go i think. I would love to go to Egypt at some point though.

Happy travels to the USA though

I grew up bilingual. Technically tri but it's more of a creole.
I lived in 4 different countries.
I didn't grow up poor. More upper middle class. However my family lost everything at one point.
I'm multiracial
I have been homeless.
Almost died a few times.
Most of the people I grew up with are junkies, dead or in prison.
I believe in God but not in organized religions.
I grew up atheist basically. However my parents found the Christian god as they got older
