Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
For a start, I must be reasonably multi-faceted because thinking
about this is giving me a headache. Here goes...
I'm easy going, open minded, quite deep but not too serious. I like
to be stimulated so i have (and have had) numerous interests, none
of which i spend an inordinate amount of time on. This has left me
knowing a little about a great deal but not a great deal about

Sometimes a prod is required to break the surface tension of the

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I attempt to take life as it comes, usually quite successfully.
Work keeps me hideously busy but i always find time to relax. I
like mini adventures but need a companion to truly enjoy them. I
guess this is why I'm here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking, listening, thinking, operating arms and legs to achieve
motion. I like to cook and i'm pretty good (apart from the washing
up bit - dishwasher does that). I also like to think i'm artistic,
i have a vague feeling that i'm not, but don't let such piffling
details stop me. So i play guitar, sculpt, sketch, scribe the odd
bit of poetry and dream. Not all at the same time.
The first things people usually notice about me

One of my front teeth is gold, i guess this make me look a bit
villainous when in close proximity to large globes or white persian
cats, though neither as yet have given me the urge to laugh
maniacally or hide nuclear weapons in the cellar. Also got a few
piercings and tattoos - nothing extreme, but people seem to notice
them (well, the ones you can see anyway). Also, I'm given to
changing appearance as you can see above. The current look is that
of of the zoo-bound lion; slightly unkempt but with a proud mane. I
avoid cameras like the plague but a new photos do occasionally
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
These kind of things always degrade into lists, which I find to be
highly dependent on mood at the time of writing. Therefore, and
without the aid of a safety net, I shall attempt to describe my
likes without citing any specific examples whatsoever. Drum roll
Books - I have always read. If I scan my bookshelves, there lies a
potted history of my life thus far. I started with mainly fantasy,
science fiction and folklore but quickly grew to love classical
literature. In recent years I find myself more interested in the
factual rather than the fictional, but it's mainly concerned with
expanding knowledge of science and British history. However, I
still maintain an (un)healthy collection of graphic novels.
Movies/TV - Anything that constitutes good cinema and quite a lot
that doesn't too. I very rarely watch television channels but I do
watch a great many films and will occasionally devour box sets in a
couple of sittings. I guess you could say I watch with willful
aforethought. For an idea of the kind of things I like, refer to
the section above on books.
Music - Eclecticism is the word here (and a very good word it is
too). Music is a very important part of my daily life and something
I could not do without. It would be true to say that much of what I
listen to is ostensibly rock orientated but I can turn my ear to
most genres with one or two exceptions. For instance, mention
reggae and I will look like a man sucking upon a lemon, mention
manufactured pop and I will no longer be in the room.
Food - Probably easier to list what i don't like. I'm a self
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1 - Music
2 - Freedom
3 - My cats
4 - My guitar (acoustic)
5 - Contact lenses
6 - Sex (failing that, tea)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. From specks of dust on an infinitesimal
void, to the name of the plastic bits on the end of shoelaces. All
largely pointless but it keeps me occupied. *Addendum* Due to
repeated reference to the actual name of the plastic bits on the
end of shoelaces, i hereby rescind and deny all knowledge of ever
having mentioned it (it's apparently called an aglet).

You find any of the above remotely appealing or intriguing. I'm on
the eternal quest to lead a happy, interesting life and anyone who
wants the same is welcome to join me. I'm by no means unhappy being
single, in fact quite the opposite. Although, getting your own way
all the time really does have limited appeal after a while...
