Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I never know what to write in the about you section so I asked a
friend to describe me: she said "geeky in a good way, always very
friendly, affectionate and comes across as confident." Yes, I am a
bit of a geek and I get very enthusiastic about things that
interest me. I can be childlike or cynical depending on my mood and
the subject and I'm fiercely loyal to my friends. I identify as a
gamer but am very aware of the responsibility for the actions of
the community that comes with that.
Although I don't have much experience with it yet I am very curious
about being polyamorous/non-monogamous. The idea of being able to
maintain strong connections with people I care about possibly in a
romantic capacity appeals to where I am emotionally in my
Also I'm Dyslexic so please dont scorn me too hard for my
inevitable spelling and or grammer mistakes :-p
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Plotting and scheming mostly. I've finally been able to break away
from the post-crash retail vortex that has drains graduates my age
like a Dementor. Now I run around helping scientists operate AV
equipment in meeting rooms, it's actually slightly more fun than it
The rest of my life...well I'm working on that, I'm learning to
brew, I do target shooting when I can, trying to set up my own
portfolio website, spending time with friends and getting into
writing reviews (mostly for apps at the moment).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people think I actually know what I'm doing, making up
words/phrases after drinking, rembering usless information,I'm a
reasonably good marksman, photography, gaming (if that counts as a
skill) and I'm vaguly musical :-p

People usually notice that I can come across either quiet or larger
than life depending on how confident I feel.
Oh and the mighty beard! Tremble before it!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Turtle pendant (I feel totally naked without it)
A good book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything and anything, usually something either silly (what if
you strapped a jetpack to a pig) or something complex (the buildup
to the next US election). That said I can go off at a tangent that
sometimes only makes sense to me
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually in a good pub with my friends having slightly nonsensical
discussions about everything and anything, on other days I may be
at a good alt club dancing drunkenly like a fool
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have narcolepsy and cataplexy, this doesn't make me a Hollywood
cliche but I have been known to fall over if I get all romantically
excited about a lady. True story bro.
I have a cross-shaped scar on my chin, I slipped in the bath when I
was three and cut myself. I did it again six months later in the
same place. The doctor who stitched me up didn't restrain me
properly so I kicked her in the stomach, hey I was only three.
