Hey, I'm Steve, an active and friendly 32 year old living in North
Manchester (ish) and not very good at writing descriptions of
myself and things like this...not good at all! I enjoy most
activities, as long as they're fun and something that can make me
think and use my mind, as I'm not a fan of dull and boring
activities...although I do enjoy a night in front of the TV on
occasion, with good wine, good food and good company. At the moment
it's just me and my cat Bumble, but I'm sure he'd love to get to
know other people (when he's not busy killing his toy mousey or
climbing up the curtains!). And now a second cat, Sally, who Bumble
is a bit scared of :(
I should point out that I'm a bit of a classic film and sci-fi
geek, I recently bought the new Star Wars box set, JUST for the
extras! So I understand I'm probably not everyone's cup of
Probably going to sound like a bit of a contradiction after I said
I don't like boring stuff, but I'm very interested in politics and
the political world. At the moment it mainly consists of shouting
at the TV during Prime Minister's Qustions!
I suppose what I'm looking for in a woman is someone who likes to
laugh and joke, isn't too serious and also someone who places
intelligence and humour above looks...I mean I know looks are
important, but to me they have to be part of a complete package,
and getting to know someone I can talk to for hours on end without
getting bored is a bigger priority than someone who looks great but
doesn't have much in common with me.
If you are a massive Futurama fan, then that is a bonus - as long
as you aren't being made to like me by the Hypnotoad!
Oh, and if you see me peeking at your profile, it generally means I
like you...but I'm not very good at starting conversations...I'll
get there eventually!
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in the process of buying a couple of houses in West Yorkshire
with the intention of running a holiday letting business. Should be
fun, and will allow me to only work one or two days a week
initially for the same wage I'm earning now.
Free time and exploring life ahoy!
I’m really good at
annoying people with crap jokes...
The first things people usually notice about me
For some reason I get a lot of people telling me I look like James
Dean Bradfield from the Manic Street Preachers. Which is one of my
favourite bands, coincidentally...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read enough books really, but I do like to read biographies
- Richard Hammond's story of his crash and recovery still makes me
well up from reading it, because it is clear just how much his wife
and friends love him.
Music-wise, I love anything rock/indie as long as it's not too
geard towards charty stuff - the best stuff is usually off the
radar of the scene kids, and that's the way it should stay!
Currently my favourite album that is on repeat is Lacuna Coil's
Dark Adrenaline - if I had to, I'd probably say Cristina Scabbia is
my ultimate ideal woman ^_^
I don't get time to watch much telly, but couldn't live without my
Netflix account - stuff like 24, Arrested Development, Coupling and
the many obscure films hidden away in its oddly-titled categories.
I also love Doctor Who, Star Trek and Wars, Firefly, and many other
sci-fi shows - anyone who remembers and loves Seaquest DSV and
Sliders should come and watch them with me!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who the devil would be insane enough to spend even a few hours with
Whether the cat's plotting to kill me or not...
Which part of the country is the best bet to move to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either working or playing darts. Life is good, but now I'm ready
for the next big step - business ownership!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whilst I'm generally quite confident, I'm actually really shy when
it comes to knowing what to say when introducing myself to
women...haven't got the foggiest!
You should message me if
you're looking for a down-to-earth typical Northern bloke - no
mystery, no games, you get what you see. Or if you're looking for
someone to share sci-fi geekery with!
