Okay this is enough, writing about yourself in little boxes is
tedious and strange. Its probably easiest to just have a chat.
That's normally how conversations work! I am new to this online
dating thing ... but I thought I would give it a shot. See what

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends. Theatre. Crisps. A Bath. Having a Laugh. Pen and Pad.

(right now) Why is Cornelius (my hamster) in a strop!? (generally)
