Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Johnny, a completely non-typical bloke working as a
creative manager in Leeds. If you're nosy you can see some of my
crap at www.trumpetcleaner.co.uk
Single and looking to get back into dating, having some fun and
eventually starting something more long term. I'm easy going,
open-minded, imaginative, I wear really cool glasses, I make a
great shopping companion (very good at holding multiple hanger
loads of clothing) and an adventurous heart.
I recently moved into my groovy flat in the city centre which I
lovingly dubbed my 'Fortress of solitude'. :D It's a nice
semi-penthouse overlooking the canal so good for chilling
When I step out of my design shoes I'm either illustrating
T-shirts, gaming, hitting the town or hanging with buddies. Then to
ensure I see plenty of natural light I spend time walking or
cycling about the local countryside laughing at sheep or shivering
in a tent (but loving every minute). Also looking forward to more
travels so look out world, here I come!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Designing stuff (websites mostly) and trying to get people to buy
my mobile game Mole Warfare (shameless plug there). Outside of work
I'm sorting out my new flat, aiming to keep it spacious with just
the right amount of hippy nonsense around the place. I need a couch
next, I'm feeling the lack of slouch-age at the moment!
Also hoping to get about the world some more, make more T-shirts,
write / illustrate a comic that's been festering in my beautiful
head for far too long and get back on the dating scene. Above all I
crave new experiences and, ideally, someone to share them with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hopefully designing stuff or I'll be making clients very
I'm good at listening, talking about weird / daft stuff one second
and heavy, philosopical crap the next and giggling uncontrollably
at 'McDonalds Insanity' videos (look it up on YouTube if you can be
arsed). Well versed in the bedroom arts too hehe.
For the rest, you'll have to buy me a beer and relax my tongue :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Maybe my obsession with the 80s.
My non-Yorkshire accent (even though I definitely see myself as a
Stark, not a Lannister!).
I'm told I have 'kind eyes'. Someone once said that they, 'couldn't
imagine me being angry', which I thought was nice :) That said
though, I do like a good debate!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
blah blah blah, what a tedious question.
Oh go on then, here's a few of each:
Books: Terry Pratchett, The God Delusion, Preacher (graphic
novels), Judge Dredd and lots of other comics!
Movies: Blade Runner, Local Hero, Witness, Taxi Driver, Before
Sunrise & Sunset, Angel-A, 80s movies in general (especially
John Hughes' teen romance flicks). More recently: Lost In
Translation, Moonrise Kindgom, Avengers Assemble, Kick Ass.
Shows: I don't watch much TV (or even own one) cos it's saturated
with brain melting sh*te but I like The Ricky Gervais show, stand
up comedy, Game of Thrones, Buffy The Vampire Slayer(ha ha) and
some other sci fi.
Music: All kinds of stuff. Especially electronic and (drum roll)
80s stuff! Recently been listening to a lot of rare 60s / 70s
stuff. Love Animal Collective for their zany, experimenting and
music for fun rather than pleasing the middle of the road
mainstream crowd. Radiohead, Pulp, Flaming Lips.... It's pointless
listing em all. I fall asleep to ambient stuff (or the sound of
rain) most nights too zzzzzz
Food: Sorry but it's a boring question so meh. I like all sorts of
stuff. Not peas though. They're just... evil.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family, music, the countryside, my imagination, baths,
love and lurve making hee hee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What cool stuff I can do with my life next :D Which festivals to go
to, what walks to do, which country to visit, if true love even
exists, if the 80s will ever come back, if time travel is possible
so I can go back to the 80s or 60s, if Richard Dawkins should
become ruler of the planet, why Dr Who has become so dire, why so
many movies have to be in headache inducing 3D, whether or not
social networking will destroy civilisation, why some people insist
on eating so loudly like the guy sat opposite me at work this
morning, oh and the six things from my list above.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting the town, trying to find quirky places that aren't as bland
as the alternative orrrr eating Pizza and watching a movie if I'm
feeling lazy. I don't really want the 'typical Friday' syndrome
though, I'd happily go to a play, jump about at a gig, be sh*t at
bowling etc etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love shopping at Lush and regularly buy things for the bath :D
There's much saucier stuff but that's my ammunition for truth or
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You look like Velma from Scooby Doo - Sexiest geek girl ever!
Seriously though, if you're looking for someone genuine who has
more than a couple of brain cells to rub together, is very
affectionate, is not the stereotypical 'lad' and doesn't know when
to stop a ridiculously long sentence, then message me :)
You're looking for someone to go on long walks with in the
countryside, and travel to strange foreign lands.
