Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
literature, rock'n'roll, social justice, bad jokes,
attention-seeking, big ideas, bigger life changes.
likes: good hair, smarts, humour, creativity. bisexuals who call
themselves queer. poly/non-monogamous people who aren't preachy
wankers. kinky people who aren't manipulative creeps. semi-ironic
Guardian readers. badass revolutionaries.
PLEASE NOTE: I'm not into IM/skype chat with strangers, I'm not
interested in your sexual fantasies, and I don't want to hear about
your dick. at least save it til the third drink of the first date,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
reading, writing, exploring, living in various weird and wonderful
places. recently I cycled through central London at rush hour and
then had to reset a switch in a fusebox full of exposed wires in
the basement of a squat where the leccy had been fixed by an
amateur electrician with limited sense of danger and a fondness for
controlled substances. the fact that I'm still alive right now
probably means that I'm immortal, so whatever I do with my life
should last for some time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
conversational referential comedy, doing stuff with words, making
babies smile, chairing meetings, cooking porridge
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd like to say stunning beauty or sparkling intellect or a bottom
that makes Beyonce weep with envy, but to be honest it's probably
the bright red hair, the fluorescent green backpack or the fact
I've just walked into a lamppost
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
my favourite literary genre is books about socially marginalised
punks trying to figure out how their aesthetic & lifestyle
choices fit with their complex identities, family histories and
traumas. you wouldn't think there would be enough books in that
category to call it a genre but there totally are.
other things I like include believable futuristic dystopias,
feminist literature, superheroes, puns, harmonies, messing with
generic conventions, coffee, apple pie, avocados.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
music. books. dancing. hugs. making plans for the future. omelette.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
activism, feminism, radical queer politics, pros and cons of
vigilante justice, whether it's accurate to call yrself an
anarchist when yr a bit scared of violence and skeptical about
revolution, books, girls, interesting projects, displacement
activity, what the hell I'm doing with my life, why it's so
impossible to skip edible avocados. that thing where you feel like
you're falling in love with someone but maybe you just think you're
falling in love with them because they're so good at oral sex. you
know, the big questions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I keep getting messages telling me I'm "down to earth", I know this
is supposed to be a compliment but I secretly find it deeply
annoying because I would rather be perceived as a whirlwind of
slightly intimidating excitement and allure.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
so one time I had this really great dream: I was reading
Shakespeare in a cafe and tapping my fingers on the table in the
rhythm of the verse as I read and this really attractive person
came up to me and looked deep into my eyes and recited the
dictionary definition of iambic pentameter. then we went back to
their house, which happened to be a stately home with an indoor
swimming pool, and had sex.
so basically you should message me if you're a beautiful
millionaire who knows what trochaic substitution is.
