Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Artist/Pattern Designer living in Chorlton.
I like wearing colorful clothing, not having a beard, reading,
walking, cycling, animals, Soren Kierkegaard, watching tv shows
whilst exercising and cuddling my cat Claude.
There are lots things that I've probably not listed but these are
the things that immediately sprung to mind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life at the moment involves a full time temp job and a full time
art/design freelance career. The latter is quite surreal and seems
to exist outside my physical existence as it's all email
correspondence and the arrangement of segments of light on a
screen. But it's going very well even though the accolades and the
money, that randomly falls from the sky, into my Paypal account
does not feel real in contrast to my normal admin job and my small
flat. So there is a lot of disparity in my life at the moment. But
it's nice to feel that after 10 years of arty aspirations I can
potentially look forward to proper full time self employment one
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've recently become really really good at democratically
organizing my mind into doing the right thing and not being
selfish. I didn't achieve this through meditation or therapy or the
usual methods but through self diplomacy and compartmentalization.
It's very nice.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm unsure but probably my clothes/hair though I would like to
think it would be my face.... which gets remarked on quite often as
being incredibly histrionic/expressive. Though I'm not often
looking at it so it's hard for me to know whether this is true.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Doesteovsky, Camus, Margaret Atwood, Kierkegaard, Phillip K
Dick, Christopher Priest, Nabokov, Nathalie Sarraute and loads of
others. I've not been reading so much lately as I don't get public
TV: Rectify, 6 Feet Under, Breaking Bad, GoT, many of the usual HBO
american tv shows that people watch on Netflix. Like British shows
like I,Claudius, Doctor Who, Blake's 7, The Tudors and other
historical dramas, Dennis Potter stuff... again I'm not too
restricted by genre and tend to listen to whatever moves me.
Music: love a bit of synth music and tend to veer more towards
electronic stuff these days. I like the texture of it and it's good
for doing my data entry to. Also love new classical music like
Phillip Glass and Arvo Part. Still into bands as well like The
Cure, Fad Gadget, Caberet Voltaire, Nick Cave, Beck, Metric, Ramona
Lisa, Ladytron, Bobby Conn and loads of others.
"Loads of others" seems to be repeated quite a lot in this section.
I don't really believe that similar cultural tastes are very
important in finding a match as I like to share interests with
people and have a form of exchange. Though it's nice to initially
have some common ground and a similar aesthetic.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4. Kind creatures - especially my cat Claude.
6. My lovely friends who are actually incredible and who I probably
don't spend quite as much time with as I should.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Ethics and trying to do the right thing for other people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
and working on art
or going out
and working on not working
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm far too organised cerebrally but not at all organised
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm very much open to meeting new people if I think I might get
along with them and in terms of romance I think you can only really
tell once you have met someone. Also most of the women I have gone
out with have all been very different to one another so I don't
tend to go for a type and cliche as it sounds it is all about
chemistry for me. Also I don't think i fit into the boundaries of
anyone else's type so it would be unfair of me to fit my potential
future partner into any preset parameters.
