Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
*Victorian Pointy Finger Hand With Cuff To Indicate Significance,
Relevance and Importance*
Somehow, despite my many and manifold failings, I'm currently in a
wonderful ethically non-monogamous non-exclusive relationship.
Should you find this unacceptable, and/or feel that you'd merely be
taking a number at a meat counter/joining a lengthy queue, or both,
then I can be of no interest to you. If your personal code remains
unviolated, then Hello.
I'm a mainly civilised liberal artsy-bookish writer somehow lodged
in new media thing, interested in what you have to say and how you
feel, looking for allies to steal horses with. That's a metaphor.
Horse crime is bad. Together we can stamp it out. I can keep up one
end of a conversation, but two seems excessive. House-trained, and
I leave both the seat and the lid down. I offer both Tea &
Sympathy and, if your co-workers or family provoke you
sufficiently, Coffee & Frowning. Let's get out and do stuff,
and occasionally just stay home and hide.
In retrospect, this will all seem like a Plan.
I don't have "A Type". Who you are is vastly more important that
what you do or where you're from. Rational self-confidence beats
attitude, and character beats looks. I admire people who are good
at being themselves and aspire to enjoy their lives without being
self-centred. I value kindness very highly. You don't have to be
bookish or artsy or expensively educated, but it'll help a lot if
you're curious: interested people always seem to be more
I brush up well, am slightly handy, and lightly musical. I'm at
least a bit interested in nearly everything. I don't look that much
like my photos in real life, but they are at least all actually of
me. I am roughly human-shaped, and theoretically likable.
I'm looking for fun, smart, sexy, mainly sane friends and
more-than-friends to go out/stay in with. Have you any opinions or
curiosities about the above? Then apply within...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning new stuff, working on the old stuff, trying to be of more
use and whenever possible misbehaving in an unabashed and cheery
fashion, hopefully in excellent company.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I seem to be able to make people laugh if I have anything in common
with them. Also, I am entirely unshockable. I mean I'm as
startle-able as the next chap, fling something at me suddenly and
I'll flinch, shrieking (but in a manly way, you understand). But
judging people for what they are or do, or were, or have done, not
so much. Now that sounds like I have an enormously mysterious and
shameful past. Not yet, but I'm working on it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk softly and don't carry any sort of stick. Also, no one can
work out what colour my eyes are.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Right now off the top of my head? Anna Karenina, Singin' In The
Rain, Sherlock, Kirsty McColl and an even halfway decent Beef
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends, books, films, mobile internet-capable phone-thing, a
certain smile, decent coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend a lot of time thinking about writing, and not enough time
writing. However, I also learned to leaven that with more time
actually getting stuff done. Partial victory, there.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Snug at home, with a book, or with friends, not with a book. Either
way, I try to perform all my most disgraceful in-town acts earlier
in the week so as to avoid the crowds.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Private? On a public internet site? Oh bless your quaint notions.
Ask and I'll tell you.
You should message me if
