I enjoy playing football, cycling, and I do get fairly enthusiastic on the dancefloor. I'm a big fan of most watersports (which living in London has unfortunately put the brakes on a bit!). I also practiced Tae Kwon Do for years (ITF, if you're interested!), but just couldn't make time for it since starting the course. Certainly something I'd like to pick up again after I graduate though.
I enjoy someone who doesn't take themselves that seriously, and can hold their own during banter. I'm a pretty relaxed guy, who does enjoy making (or at least attempting to make) people laugh! Other than that, I'm more than happy to take people as they are, and take it from there. That leads on to my love of stand-up comedy, which I'm always eager to go to.
Get a bit scared of reading, generally because if I get into a book, it REALLY takes over my life. At the worse, I'll literally start planning through my day, trying to find spare minutes here and there where I can get more reading in!
Love traveling if I can get away anywhere, where my weakness of a complete lack of linguistic abilities, has developed my strength in charades! I have a particular weakness for South-East Asia though (where I spent most of my youth growing up), so I suppose I have a fondness for warmer climes...
Last thing I'd probably mention is that I'm pretty loud. That's certainly one of the things people who know me would mention, and it'll come pretty apparent if we ever meet!
So if you think you could handle an enthusiastic, energetic and pretty loud guy, and help him explore London? Get in touch!
Past that, it could be my American accent (there's a story behind it!).
The only exception is if I'm anywhere near a dancefloor. Then it's DEFINITELY not going to be the accent!
Exclamation marks. Talking, texting, writing emails. I use them. A LOT.
I've struggled this far not to use about 20...
Yes. We were inputting his ROUTE, on his SAT-NAV, the night BEFORE, his *2400 mile race*, kicked off.
What was worse, is that it took 4 of us, 3 computers, and the remnants of 2 bottles of spirits to get that done.
And don't get me started on the paper maps... !
And I make no apologies for it!
