My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Patrick. I'm a highly social mammal with a thing for red wine, spanish food, music festivals, stand up comedy, crosswords, community radio, house parties, intelligent debate, whisky and this city.

I am pretty comfortable in almost any company, including my own, but i do try to surround myself with intelligent, left leaning people who don't take themselves too seriously.

I am an inherently positive person. I'm very open minded in terms of lifestyle but very much a rationalist when it comes to the way i view the world around me. In other words, I won't judge you if you like wearing latex onesies at the dinner table or enjoy medieval role play but I may glaze over a little if you start talking about psychics or chakras.

I think sites like okstupid can actually be great. The main problem is running into close friends on here. It is much like running into your great Aunt at a sex shop.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I own a small backpacker hostel on one side of town and a bar/live music venue on the other. It keeps me pretty busy. I divide much of my spare time between, bars, galleries, gigs, Fitzroy back beach (the pool), the Nova and Edinburgh gardens. I play in the pub footy league . I'm almost the worst player in the team but I love it. I travel almost every year overseas. I write a lot of letters. Mainly to a few women in the Texan prison system. These days I seem to spend a lot of time MCing friend's weddings, looking at baby photos on facebook and embarrassing myself in front of Marieke Hardy. Oh and I play guitar, but then, so does every guy in my street.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm pretty good at talking. I could talk my way out of cholera. I am also a very good listener. I'm good at picking up on what is really going on in the room and getting friends to open up. I am good at getting a group together. I could herd cats. I think I am a fantastic dancer. Friends would be more likely to say "entertaining dancer" or "unique dancer". They mean fantastic. I'm good with maps and have a keen sense of direction. I am good at making you feel bad because of your comparatively terrible sense of direction. I am very good at naming capital cities (identifying existing cities, not entitling new ones), making cocktails in pressure situations and composing puns.
