My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Effete pseudo-intellectual, just about a person. Looking for another person to laugh at things with, have deep & meaningfuls, but also snort at cheap innuendos & lame gags.
I have some lovely shirts; & the sort of bookshelves & record collection that would suggest a geek. I'm not a geek (clearly I am).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I found a new job. I now work in an office in local government, & it is considerably better than television had led me to believe. Damn the lying box. I have a degree and a masters in the sort of subject that is life-enhancing, brain-enhancing, but increases your employability by 0.9%.
Otherwise, I read, I socialise, listen to music, and do all the rather predictable things folk do.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking (i think), reading, arguing, being interested in stuff. Feeling like a naughty schoolboy at a grown-ups party. I can play tennis too, but to say I'm good might be stretching it. Doing as my friend Emma tells me. You would too, trust me, she does teacher face on you, and then you comply.

I'm also quite good at swinging between seeming serious and intelligent and seeming a total arse.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My medium height, dark but sadly disappearing hair, glasses, and my look of fear at being confronted with a new and interesting person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- Julian Barnes, Jonathan Coe, Evelyn Waugh, Muriel Spark, Kingsley Amis, Graham Greene, Henry Green, Angus Wilson, Elizabeth Bowen, David Mitchell. plus, poetry, history, politics, biographies, anything on culture and society really. But honest, in spite of the reading, I'm a twerp really.
Music- The Beatles, The Smiths, My Bloody Valentine, Yo La Tengo, Sleater Kinney, Sonic Youth, Elliott Smith, Suede, Indie generally, 60s, and Soul/Motown. I am obsessed with music and have been since 13, only books come close.
Films- Big Lebowski, Amelie, Woody Allen films, LA Confidential, Coen Brothers films, Juno, A Single Man
TV- Black Books, Spaced, Father Ted, QI, League of Gentlemen, Pete and Dud, and any good docs I can find.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends obviously.
My stereo,
CDs to play on it (though they number somewhat more than 6).
A wilful sense of disregard for propriety.
Red wine or real ale (something named after an animal, preferably involving a pun)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything I'm reading/watching/listening to, political stuff, how peculiar people are. British History since the Victorians, Cultural Ideas, What is a good book? Why is that funny? Cake, all that kinda jazz.
And currently, Why am I fascinated by Henry James, yet find his books tough-going?
The strange dynamics of human desire & affection.
The marvellous diversity of linguistuc euphemism for genital areas
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at home, reading, or watching BBC4 music docs, thinking about what I can do, who I can meet on Saturday & Sunday.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once took one of my favourite ever albums back to the shop because I hated it, only to re-buy it two years later. So, yes, i reserve the right to change my mind.

Oh, and I'm made of biscuit.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you'd like to get to know me. This whole scenario makes me quite shy, so don't assume I'd message you if I liked you.....frequently my brain goes 'she's nice!', & then follows it with ' Jesus, what do I say?'

(I don't have A-list, so if you like me, then just message me; I don't bite, honest)

Ps. Grammar & spelling are reasonably important to me, but I can forgive typos.
