Eng Lit PhD, now working in another subject I don't like quite so much.
*update/apology etc* I've failed to respond to messages for the last few weeks although some of them were very interesting indeed. Though 'mostly non-monogamous' (whatever that means could be debated at length no doubt), I have been seeing someone I really like for a while and what with domestic and (now that term is upon me again) work related timesucking activities recently, I basically haven't got the bloody time for much else and socialising time is suffering. This annoys me. All that being said, the standard of intelligent lefty anti-capitalist weirdos and nutters on here appears to be rising by the day and I am going to make more of a concerted effort to reply. To be brutally honest though, as I prefer to be, I probably haven't got time for anything other than occasional coffee type friendships right now.....*
Warning btw: reading this rambling profile apparently causes actual pain. My favourite recent message told me so. 'Trying to read your profile gave me a headache... I know you said you don't want random sex messages and I'm only 21 but are you sure, we can pretend I'm older'. I was uncharacteristically lost for words after that one.
Eccentric, loud, feminist (what you believe about us is imho likely to be wrong), can be very ranty. Rants can be cut short with administration of coffee or a genial 'shut up will you woman, I need to get a word in'. I'm a very friendly but very detached person who needs a lot of downtime (usually reading my collection of obscure books...or just pottering around doing domestic stuff badly) but also love to do this with a companion if one happens to be around. And if they want to go off somewhere else and come back later that's fine too.
I talk too much, no doubt about it. Feel free to talk over me or tell me to shut up (nicely, I would prefer that) as per above.
My disclaimer about no random sex messages appears to have worked somewhat. I only get about 2 such messages a week. The last two were from 'women' (allegedly). Here is a sample:
'hey babe can I have ur num my man is Asian tall thin and a big dick we are wild and need a wild female to join us xx send me ur mobi or do u want mine xxx'
If you would never send a message which in any way resembles this, that's a good start.
By the way, no I don't want a picture of your cock. Thanks.
