**I'm leaving the country this August to do my PhD in the USA, so I'm not really looking for anything too serious right now, but if you're just looking for someone to enjoy some casual fun with, i am about for a few months.**
First things first, I am a recovering alcoholic and addict, with a little over seven and a half years clean and sober. Consequently, I don't drink alcohol at all. If that's an issue for you, then, well, have fun out there. I attend meetings at least three nights a week, but I'm completely comfortable around people drinking etc. so don't worry about upsetting me.
That said, I've not joined a monastic order or anything, I still love to be out and about, doing all manner of things. I play rugby and remain very much involved in the social side of my club, although I'm certainly not your stereotypical rugby lad. I've also taken up coaching the under-18 side. A few other ways I spend my time include going to gigs, (usually hardcore, punk or metal) clubbing (in particular trance, hardcore or drum and bass nights with my sober mates, but I'm open to most genres) and nights spent in deep debate (read: ridiculous conversation) in a quiet-ish pub (normally with old school friends including my housemates, who I'm very close to).
I do have a really busy schedule, teaching physics full time as well as attending meetings, and playing, training, coaching, and working out for, rugby. But I'd like to find someone I can share some of my few free hours and plenty of laughs with, who's smart and funny, and who doesn't take life too seriously.
Anyway, thanks for reading, I hope you find what you're looking for.
