Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Boy-shaped object currently living in London (originally from east
Kent). Various things I like: punk, science, gothy things, animals,
needlessly dark subjects (if it's kind of fucked up I'm probably
interested in it), the woods, Manic Street Preachers, the odd
drinky, Beat literature (esp. William Burroughs), museums,
Stuff I would like to do much much more of: clubbing in places full
of weirdos, weird experiences generally, arty things, dressing up,
urban exploration, going to gigs - tbh I led a sheltered life for a
long time and now I'm really looking for pretty much any new
experiences going. Bassoon lessons, kendo, BDSM clubs, ballet -
anything. At least once (well, within reasonable limits. I think
I'll give smoking meth and joining a Congolese militia a
NOTE: I am primarily here to meet new chums. I guess it's possible
that something more could eventually develop, but if I message you
it's probably just with friends in mind cuz I want to meet new
people generally. Buuuuut I tend to get on with girls better than
boys for whatever reason so it'll probably still be mostly
NOTE #2: am currently in an It's Complicated situation. I'm sure
you don't care about the details much but in short, I'm not
formally with someone but I.. kind of am in practice.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to make some sort of sense of London, where I've just moved
to. Being a country boy I'm a bit intimidated :S
Other than that:
- Working in a charity shop (Mind)
- Studying for my psychology BSc (on the OU)
- Trying to make a living off being a graphic designer
- Learning the cello (currently rubbish; I already play
- Lying in bed working through the large stack of comics next to it
(mostly alternativey stuff.. I don't like superheroes)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have no idea. You'd have to ask people who know me. I could only
say what I think I'm good at, and that's not the same as what I am
actually good at, innit :P
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: W.S. Burroughs, Douglas Adams, Wodehouse, horrendously
expensive art books, alternative comics.
TV: Young Ones, One Foot in the Grave, Blackadder, Python, Alan
Partridge, Black Books, The X-Files, documentaries about horrible
I'm not very picky about food. But I am a bit of a sugar addict. I
seem to eat an inordinate amount of sandwiches.
Music: punk, rock, a bit of metal. Given I was a teenager in the
90s there's usually a lot of grunge/riot grrrl stuff on my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends, my cat, my computer, my musical instruments, Adobe
software, my job (sad, but it does keep me semi-sane)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of stuff, usually inconsequential intellectual crap. Although
relevant here, I wonder how gender affects people's behaviour on
For instance: my female friends seem to get a constant deluge of
(usually highly unwelcome/creepy/generally horrifically
inappropriate) messages whereas pretty much nobody ever messages
me, and I wonder if this is because 1) by and large even online men
feel pressure to do the searching/approaching and women are more
likely to just wait for someone non-douchebaggy to message them or
2) I'm a bit of an acquired taste, or just not very
Or also: because of how many scary men there are out there compared
to scary women, are men much more likely to meet someone off OKC if
suggested? Is it a bit inappropriate to even suggest it or should
you wait until someone feels comfortable enough with you that they
Oh god I dunno. I overthink everything as you can see :P
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Ideally: at a weird event somewhere with a lot of strangely-dressed
people, a wee drinkie in my hand and some witty and erudite and
quite sloshed chums.
Realistically: looking at Facebook, watching Star Trek and smoking
heavily. I KNOW HOW TO PARTY.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm genderqueer (a term I don't particularly like but it's better
than a long/dull explanation). I crossdress (sometimes). If that's
a major problem for you probably best not to message me. I
intentionally put my most girly photo as my main picture because I
figure it's best to filter out those people ASAP. Related: I'm not
super Tumblr-y, don't worry. I care about social justice stuff but
I'm extremely difficult to offend.
Also if you're politically very conservative or very religious it's
not that likely we're gonna get on. Sorry.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you think I sound nice? Here to make friends as much as anything,
so please don't think I'm gonna assume anything if you do message
