I wish I could say I was some frankly fascinating ethnicity, as some people are, but I'm just plain old English. I was born and raised in the city, and I'm pretty sure if I ever went past the M25 I'd vanish in a puff of smoke.
I am a bit posh; but then everyone loves a bit of posh, don't they? My name's Francis, but I definitely prefer to go by Frank; not only does it sound much better, but when used in combination with my surname, it's...well, not quite a pun, but close.
I like to paint and draw and stuff- I have a little pad I carry around with me so I can scribble stuff down when I think of it; I use it for writing, too, if I think of ideas for stories or poems or anything I think sounds good.
I love to sing and dance (sometimes properly dancing, sometimes that lame little jiggle and hand movements you do when you're sitting down and can't be bothered to get up), and sometimes, when I think I'm alone, I sing to myself, really loud. Sometimes, I really haven't been alone.
I love to explore, too; like going down a street I haven't been to before, or going left instead of right if I'm walking or driving somewhere. Occasionally I'll spend a day just going in a certain direction, or deliberately picking a route I know for sure I haven't been down before. I love walking down streets in the early evening, too, when it's getting dark but nobody's closed their curtains yet- it's fun just to be nosey, and see what they're doing.
I like to cook, and most of the time, I'll just make up random recipes, or experiment with ingredients. I also like to name the things I invent with ridiculously pretentious foreign-sounding names- usually French- or I make really bad puns. Lucky Dip, anyone?
I like having fun, no matter what I do. If you can't do it with a smile on your face, why do it at all, right? I make it a rule to never take things too seriously, because life's too short to be all sour and dour (interestingly, those two words don't rhyme!)
I like to discover things, and learn things. I like to try and learn one new thing every day, so then I can be all 'oh, by the way, did you know', and people I know will be all 'huh, really', and that'll be a few moments of extra conversation squeezed out of the day. Usually they're actually not all that interesting, but that just makes it even more fun.
I like to tell stories, whether they're anecdotes, or actual pieces of fiction. Some call it boring, I call it practise for bedtime stories.
I like to act, that said. I'm pretty good at accents, and can do a great Irish one. i have an interesting story about that, if you're interested.
I'm looking, ideally, for a proper long-lasting relationship. I'm not after anything casual, nor am I looking to mess you about, or be messed about. I'm tired of people who play games, or people who act one way when they're really another. Just be yourself, and be after the same thing I am, and we shall get along famously, I'm sure.
Alright, I've gone on long enough, so, if you want to know anything else about anything else, then feel free to ask!
