Instead of the name I actually got, my parents almost called me Axle. It wasn't even after Axl Rose, it was Axel Foley. Yeah, Beverly Hills Cop. Maybe that says quite a lot about my upbringing.
I can truthfully say I am half British, half French and half Polish.
I sometimes play guitar and I swim every weekend (no Swimmers Body™ just yet but it's happening 8-D).
I'm interested in politics but I don't push it on others. I try hard to focus on the common ground I have with people rather than trying to find some ideological reason to hate them. It's pretty fine if you don't care about that stuff.
Actually, my last relationship was with someone who would've been a terrible OKC match, but we were extremely happy together. I like learning from people of totally different outlooks and temperaments. So if you don't care about our lack of a match I probably won't either.
I am not a "Guardian reader", because I think basing your entire worldview on a single newspaper is, frankly, pretty daft. To modernise a phrase from Orwell, some things are true even if they are written in the Daily Mail.
I'm not really looking for anything serious, but I wouldn't say I'm after "meaningless" one-night stands either. I'm trying to take a break from long-term relationships and just make some friends.
