I am also a total doof. Beware.
"I've been building scars up,
Putting flames out with my fingers." - The Exies
"Love's a thrill, love's a switch, love is a shot and I don't know what love is, but I know what it's not. Suddenly you're outside of my dreams. You should have known I'd leave." - VAST
"If you must play, decide upon three things at the start: the rules of the game, the stakes, and the quitting time." - Chinese Proverb
"Love without evidence is... stalking." - Tim Minchin
I am a contradiction most of the time - hugely cynical but still a romantic, with big plans for the world if ONLY I could add a few more hours to my day. I'm a writer, an actor, a dreamer and a player. What I want most out of life is true happiness. I always want to be shown something new... taken on an adventure. My loves in life (in no particular order) are music, films, books, writing, acting, dancing, costumes, sleeping, road trips, mischief-making and long walks in beautiful places. Those we love are the pillars that hold our world up.
A young lady with an increasing verve for life, experimentation and absurdity. Frequently dabbling in Professional Procrastination and Internet Addiction, I can usually be found squirreled away in my much-loved flat, which I share with my fiancé, our cat Spangle and the ghost of my deceased pet goldfish, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac.
Oh yeah, and that thing in the cellar.
Fond of terribly outrageous outfits and decor, goth stuff, platform shoes, corsetry, filth, friends, cheddar and a good night in with a movie. NOT too fond of 'scene' politics, rumour-mongering, getting up in the morning, ignorant people and olives.
Be warned, I'm no picnic. I'm guarded, cynical, self-deprecating and straight-talking.
I want to be shown something new. I want the guy who sweeps me off my feet without being cliche and predictable. I want wit, charm, intelligence, humour and spontaneity. I want someone who will surprise me, challenge me, introduce me to new things, take me on an adventure and make me feel like the only girl in the room. Kind eyes, a warm smile and quirky good looks are a must. I'm looking for someone well-read, creative, caring and experimental. A love of non-mainstream music and film would be the cherry on the top.
I consider myself as bi, though prefer male to female in the bedroom. Am currently in an open engagement (allowed to date/play/sex anyone I like). I'm not looking for a random one night stand, or a new primary relationship. What I'm looking for is an affectionate partner in crime of a like-minded demeanor, within my age group, for fun-filled dating and maybe more. I rely heavily on trust, friendship and common interest and it's a tall order for someone to fill. Still, I remain hopeful that I'll meet someone who I 'click' with.
I am eccentric, changeable, and filthy. I am also poly, bisexual, goth and kinky.
SUMMARY: Penelope Garcia looking for her Tim Minchin.
"Forgive me someone, for I have sinned
And I know not where I should begin
Some days it feels like you just can't win
No matter what you do or say.
Things didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
Life is short but it feels much longer
You've lost that drive, you've lost that hunger
To pull yourself through the day.
But if ever I stray from the path I follow
Take me down to the English Channel
Throw me in where the water is shallow
And then drag me on back to shore!
'Cos love is free and life is cheap
As long as I've got me a place to sleep
Clothes on my back and some food to eat
I can't ask for anything more." - Frank Turner
