My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's hip to be square (bap dap bee dooby doop).

Hey there.

Australian transplant by way of the UK and The Netherlands, Reasonably conservative but also pretty wildly unconventional and yes, I know that doesn't make any sense. Used to work in publishing and was getting quite high-powered, important and obnoxious until I decided to throw it in and become a travelling minstrel instead. I still own a flat in London and go back there a few times a year, it's the closest thing to home without spending a fortune on long-haul flights.

I really like Germany, and the people in it. Think I'll stay here. My German skills are a work in progress, but I'm working pretty hard at them at the moment. Fluency or bust! I read (in English) constantly, although mostly journalism and opinion pieces. I can be a lot of fun, and have been known to dance like a maniac when I've had a few drinks - see pictures for reference!

I also have a British Racing Green Mini Cooper, that totally gets compliments and takes me everywhere. She's awesome. Have car, can travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a full-time classical singer. I divide my time between solo oratorio/early music concerts and professional choral work. Yes, I am good at it. I have a website if you're interested. You should ask me why I don't like opera.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Apart from the above, I tie a freakin' killer half-Windsor tie-knot. I make a great gin martini when called upon. I can make friends with animals at 50 paces, particularly cats.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The hair. It's a bit of a microcosm of me. A short-back-and-sides, but unique, characterful, artsy, messy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'll keep this short, as no-one bothers reading this section, really. I know I certainly don't.

Cricket (the sport). Film in general, and particularly intelligent, psychological thrillers. TV - Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, The Red Road (cancelled! *sniff!*), Halt And Catch Fire. Books - anything by Nick Earls, Tanith Lee or Diana Wynne-Jones (RIP). Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes which genuinely changed my life and caused me to lose ten kilos (and I wasn't that big to start with). Good German beer. That'll do.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My iPad, the internet, cricinfo.com, women, wine and song.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Women. Love. Sex. My career. Money - wish I didn't, but it's true. Cricket. How to reconcile the fact that whilst all of my school and university friends have Settled Down and are about to bring their third child into the world, I'm still footloose and fancy-free and am in no mood to get fat, bald and wear rubber-soled shoes with suits (*shudder*) anytime soon, thanks very much. What that means when it comes to my love-life, and whether anyone else but me cares that I feel like I'm ten years out of sync with myself. Whether or not the pretty girl on the train will think I'm a creep if I say hello.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't really do typical Friday nights. Depending on the time of year I suppose there's a decent chance I'll be singing somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I identify as much younger than I actually am. This is not to say that I'm immature, but it just seems that I'm a young soul. This is driven in no small part by the fact that I also LOOK much younger than I am, to the point that when I tell people my real age they sometimes react like I'm taking the piss. Lately I've been experimenting with telling everyone that I'm 30. It seems to make things easier - it saves on the endless conversations about how young I look, and if the world wants me to be younger I might as well just go with it.

Oh, and a word on "strictly monogamous." Like many of you, I have dabbled - well, more than dabbled, actually - in the polyamory thing. It has its perks, and from a scientific and intellectual standpoint I completely agree with it. In practice, well ...... not so much. Suffice it to say that I'm not looking to go down that road again anytime soon. This is not to say that I'm really unforgiving and rigid about it - everyone has their own definition of what monogamous means and how it should/can be interpreted, but on the whole, enjoy your open relationships, but they're not for me.

I also have a thing for fellow gingers.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You know a good karaoke bar with an appropriately cheesy playlist.

You'd like to know more.

PS- I am not a "hi, how are you" merchant, but seriously ladies, you can't expect fantastically engaging messages if all you've got is a picture and no profile text. Just sayin'!
