..Well since you are, I guess i'll tell you abit about the place. But don't loiter too long okay? Because this spot is very important to me. Why? Because silly, it's about me! .. Well you can stay I guess, but only under one circumstance! If you're actually /serious/ about finding somebody on this site to connect with; and if you are?! Great news! I can't think of any other candidate better than myself!
But hold the phone. We're getting carried away here, we've only just met.. Let's see. Well! Let me start by telling you why.
There are many types of people in the world, but let's just focus on two for now. You have those that dream, and you have those that do.
I'll confess, i've been solely a dreamer for a very long time, and it hasn't got me very far in the material world. So i'm a do'er now right? That's what you probably expect to read.
Well not quite, i'm mixing it up, and let me tell you. These two together? Powerful forces. I'm going places.
I could be a writer. I could be almost anything in media if I devoted my time to it. But infact i've chosen a path not normally walked by my dreamy, poetshirt wearing stereotype. I'm a security operative (scratch that. I'm a supervisor now), and in August 2012 I went out of country to do extensive firearms and training for my profession. Since then I have joined Search and Rescue, and am in the process of organising my next trip to Prague to do more ballistics.
So, how does having your own bodyguard sound? Pretty nifty huh? Well, my rates are actually quite high so it's probably best we use that fabled concept 'romance' as currency.
Romance! Yes, romance. I love that word, it strikes up in my mind visions of Roman deities like the god of war; Mars. His finger extended lazily toward the horizon while his statuesque body bristles with cords of marbled muscle. An ancient practice of chivalry so rare and tiny in the majority of depraved history yet somehow compels our hearts and minds so greatly.
Now, i've wittled on a little bit, so I will condense the rest of my self-summary down, i'm going to throw random things about myself at you, ohyes. So get those woolen-mitts ready to catch!
First off, and I think this counts ALOT. I'm switched on. You can have a very fun conversation with me and that's a fact. I'm engaging and responsive, unlike alot people who use the internet these days.
My father was Armenian/Iranian, my mother is English/French. So it's safe to say i'm no pedigree! But i'm one damn wiley mongrel that's forsooth.
I had arachnaphobia as a child but forced myself to get over spiders for the most part. (I still get a /little/ concerned.) and all this without actually killing a spider. Huh? Why! Well, I don't believe in needlessly taking lives. Of anything, even if i'm scared of it. That's my mantra. I'm a good guy see. (Lies)
I have a very varied amount of knowledge amassed. I've been known to have indepth conversations with anybody from specialised cancer oncologists all the way to political history professors. I didn't go to University, but I absorb information like a sponge, generally with the help of websites like TED.com. So if you're looking for worthwhile conversation, here the fuck I am.
I'm influenced greatly by the The Order of the Poor Knights of the Temple of Jerusalem, i.e The Knights Templar. While they may have been particularly smelly since they didn't wash and generally bloodthirsty with their crusades, I like their founding principles and legacy. Jacque De Molay is possibly my favourite historical figure, and I fell in love with Cathar country in France as a child.. Rennes-le-Château is one of my favourite places.
