About Me:
I am a British national who has lived in Germany for the past 14 years (9 previous years in the Netherlands, 3 in France, 1 in Belgium, and I worked for 7 months in Norway and 4 months in the US - I get around). I am married (no kids, thankfully), a pragmatic European liberal, and I make a point of keeping my emotions under control, but as is the case with many European liberals, the continued Islamisation of Europe is a serious concern (put me in the Sam Harris school of thought where Islam is concerned).
I started out life as a teacher, spent 20+ years working in IT, and these days I work part-time from home as a translator (German, French or Dutch into (UK) English. Though I would still like a full-time job in Germany in IT (not much chance, but anyway).
The UK's imminent departure from the EU is also a major concern (I cannot see one logical argument in favour), and I may well become a German citizen in the next few months, though the financial impact of the UK decision cannot be avoided.
I would like to be tolerant and open-minded about all things, but with religion (particularly Islam) it is sometimes very difficult to do so. My wife is a not overly zealous Buddhist, and I have no problems with that.

It sounds like you intend on getting involved here. Most members don't. Two members of "Hanging with Friends" group from The Netherlands are Ian and Plinius (Chris). I know of none from Germany although there are some.
