My self-summary
Name's David. Queer and feminist and lefty and so on. Some of this profile page is a bit out of date, I'm slowly updating it. I split most of my time between Chester, and Vienna (and occasionally Manchester), in, variably, that order. Polyamorous I suppose, if you like unwieldy labels. Joined this because the idea intrigued me (the questions thing: I was disappointed), not really expecting to find anything, but who knows. Then again since I don't know what I'm looking for maybe I already found it.

I'm a city person at heart, the country is nice for a short holiday but any longer term than that and it is paralysingly boring.

I get angry at politics over a cup of tea with friends. It's fun.

I also galleries and museums and the theatre occasionally for plays or ballets or operas or the cinema for...pretty much anything. Very flexible on the film front.

About to start a course in Social Psychology at the OU.

I like to think I'm interesting and open minded but I reckon they're things more useful for other people to decide about me. They are rather relative terms after all.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment I swing wildly between being very busy and not very busy at all. The things I'm actually doing vary.
I’m really good at
Thinking. I do it a lot, too much probably. I'm not bad at talking either. And listening too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have an accent not in keeping with my Hometown or my working class upbringing. I was told I sounded "like a Southerner that's spent too much time in Manchester". I resent the implication of the words "too much" in that sentence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books (I have a terrible memory for remembering books I've read):

Lockpick Pornography;
Vile Bodies
Decline and Fall (think that might be favourite book);
The Vampire Chronicles
the Dune series
Son of a Witch
The Dark Tower
The Discworld books.

Favourite Non-Fiction:
The Queer Art of Failure - Jack Halberstam (I'm currently in the process of reading it but so far I'm really loving it)
Simians, Cyborgs and Women: The Reinvention of Nature - Donna Haraway
Anti-Oedipus - Deleuze and Guattari
Utilitarianism - Mill
Gender Trouble - Butler
Excitable Speech - Butler
Of Grammatology - Derrida
Limited Inc - Derrida (the second essay in it, 'Limited Inc a,b,c...', is really very funny)
History of Sexuality - Foucault
Discipline and Punish - Foucault
Madness and Civilization - Foucault
The Lightning Flash - Michele Cooke (from a series called 'Translation Happens' apparently)
Did Somebody Say Totalitarianism? - Slavoj Žižek
The Plague of Fantasies - Slavoj Žižek (really,
Bits of Marx...

Radio/podcasts (bit in love with BBC radio 4):

'I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue'
'Just a Minute'
'In Our Time'

'Welcome to Night Vale'

Music: Lots. Not much more I can say. I love music. I'll select some random examples: Will and the People; Orphans and Vandals; Scissor Sisters; Gossip; The Beatles; Adam and The Ants; The Noisettes; Foals; Alphabeat; La Roux; Blondie; Depeche Mode; The Clash; The Sex Pistols...some others...recently discovered "electro swing" in the form of Caravan Palace, bit in love with the genre.

Other media: Currently working my way through 'The Good Wife'. really enjoying it.

Food: Generally vegetable friendly. Don't really have favourite foods though.

Drinks: Tea is good. Yunnan, or Keemun, or Assam. If we're going for alcohol then dry white wine, gin and tonic, or perhaps a dry gin martini.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order (and excluding things I need to survive as a biological organism):

1. Tea (I love tea)

2. The Internet

3. My Friends/interpersonal relationships. Esp. those I'm more romantically involved with.

4. Sleep (apart from this, I do need this also as a biological entity)

5. Something with which I can listen to BBC Radio 4

6. Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life; society; politics; philosophy; happiness; justice; language...anything really.

Interesting ideas in general really. An interesting idea can keep me thinking for a long time. Much longer than a merely accurate idea.
On a typical Friday night I am
It varies a lot. In Chester I'll probably be at the flat, doing whatever I feel like, maybe with a glass of wine and a film, or I might be out at a bar. If I'm in Vienna I might be out being social, or in playing board games with people or something else entirely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a fear of ending my life in a suburban hell where nothing ever changes and nothing interesting or new ever happens.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 18–35
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
I'm not convinced you need a reason. Frivolity, perhaps.
