1. I'm an awesome cook and can put up a good shelf
2. I'm interested in random things, like linguistics and the architecture of London Underground Stations. You'll be pleased to know that I don't expect you to be though
3. I have a sarcastic sense of humour and I'm not afraid to take the p*** out of myself
4. I read newpapers and have opinions on stuff. I care about the world and about other people
5. I'm a very honest person, I wear my heart on my sleeve so you'll always know where you stand
6. I'll never drag you shopping with me - if you don't drag me to the football - that's a good swap in my eyes
7. I scrub up well and I'm good with "the parents"
8. I can spell and use punctuation :-)
9. I'm not needy - I love my own company...BUT
10. When I'm in a relationship I give a million per cent to the person I love :-D
Sooooo now my sales pitch is over...I'd like to meet someone who is funny, confident and smart. I'm starting a sociology postgrad course soon so it would be nice to meet someone who has at least a passing interest in the world around us (although that doesn't mean I want to sit around and endlessly debate the day in parliament!). I'm not racist/Daily-Mail minded so it would be nice if you weren't either - sorry to have to say this but I've been burned by some bad experiences...
I love going to the gym and swimming to keep fit although cant do this as vigourously as i used to as i recover from my op for a slipped disc...ouch. I love music...stuff on my iphone recently includes the 1975, Palma Violets, Azalea Banks, The Joy Formidable, The Vaccines, Frank Turner, Wombats & The Courteeners. I also have a long term affection for Billy Bragg. I love comedy, especially Stewart Lee and Richard Herring who held a special place for me growing up!
My friends are really important to me and as I've got older I value my family more and more. A lot of my friends and family live in London so I wouldn't rule out a move down south in the future.
I've you've staggerered to the end of this stream of conciousness you should definitely message me if only to say hello!
