However 65,016 users (as of right now) can't all be wrong so here goes. If nothing else, it's one of the greatest devices for procrastination ever created.
I am actually from London, hence the username (a few people have asked).
I always assume this will be obvious as soon as I start speaking but apparently not. Like many other Brits in the US, I am habitually confused with just about any English-speaking nationality other than England (Australian seems to be the favorite but someone once asked me if I was South African! They clearly had never heard a South African accent before).
I've lived primarily in LA for the last 7 years, which may mean that my accent has been watered down a little - although I really hope not!
And I never noticed it before but I seem to like parentheses (you'll either know what this sentence means or you'll think I have some kind of weird fetish).
I'm surprised more people haven't asked me about the meerkat. Do a lot of other guys on OkCupid have one on their shoulder? Damn, I thought I was being really original...
