I'd consider myself an atypical guy. Although I can be loud and opinionated at times, I'm willing to listen to reasoned argument. I care a lot about friends, and am happy to show that.
I trust my instincts and trust other people far too easily. I like a drink with mates, and am happy to laugh at myself. I also mix fantastic cocktails and can cook a great meal if called upon to do so.
For the last few years I've been developing a taste for films... all films, and have a collection that's appproaching 500 dvd's.got everything in there from animations, to trashy action films to the more serious psychological thrillers.
I read books at a horrific rate, generally getting through at least 2 per week, although I must admit a lot of them are sci-fi or fantasy novels, or even a mix of the two.
I'm useless at making the first move. Absolutely terrible at it. I'm usually articulate, sometimes witty and once I get to know the company I'm in I'm fairly confident. My problem is that I prefer initially to sit and watch, to listen and learn what makes people tick. Only once I'm confident that my sense of humour, attitudes towards life and my personality won't be found offensive, upsetting or antagonistic do I truly relax. Once I do the problem is then getting me to shut up!
On any given day I can be exuberant, reclusive, happy, sad, irritable, forgiving etc etc. Labels don't work for me, nor for anyone I know.
