Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hiya! My name is Lee. I'm fairly outgoing and have been described
as extremely quirky (e.g., large hand gesticulations, bizarre sound
effects, strange faces/voices, etc.). I'm easily entertained,
easily excited, and easily startled.
I dabble in a lot of things, but am not particularly great at
anything. I'm pretty boss at skipping stones. I can swing super
high on a swingset. I sing and dance constantly. I like beer and
scotch, and I love the smell of pipe tobacco.
I graduated with an MSc in Forensic Anthropology from the
University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
I have two cats and a dog. My cats are mixed breeds named Sammy and
Aidan. My pup is a German Shorthaired Pointer named Greta (although
she doesn't live with me at the moment).
Although I am pansexual (feel free to Google that), I have zero
interest in being any one person's (or couple's) accessory. I am,
in fact, a human being. I am not a prostitute, so keep your lewd
comments and monetary offers to yourself. Cheers!
NOTE: Individuals younger than myself, PLEASE stop messaging me. I
have zero interest in dating anyone younger than my own age. I'm
sure you're a swell person, but you're very much not for me. Also,
protip, no 25 year old woman wants to get a message from an 18 year
old boy saying, "hey sexi u wanna cum ovr n have a gud time?"
Because no, no they don't (at least 95% of the time).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As mentioned previously, I now have a Master of Science. My plan
for now is to work full time to start saving up money while I
continue studying independently and (hopefully) eventually find a
job in my field. I've recently started looking into training in
wildlife/animal rescue and rehabilitation. Through all that, I
guess my main goal is to really enjoy my life and keep myself and
my pets alive. Haha.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a dabbler. I do ballroom dancing which I fully enjoy and am
decent at, and I also do a bit of calligraphy which I am not great
at, but keep attempting to do. I can perform a multitude of songs
in a highly melodramatic fashion, do puzzles, and help you fuck up
Other than that, I used to be a competitive swimmer - and was
actually pretty good - but had to quit after receiving surgery on
both my shoulders for impingement syndrome and bursitis.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am quite outgoing, I tend to laugh and smile a lot and I'm not
afraid to start conversations and meet new people so I guess that
would be what people first notice about me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, which is a fucking
classic, so get over it. I dig it. I'm currently forging through
House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski (my third attempt) and
refuse to scare myself away from it this time. I read a lot. Like A
LOT a lot. I like sad books. I like scary books. I like intense
books. I like classic books. I just really like books.
My favorite movies are probably Hot Fuzz, Ladyhawke, and Pan's
Labyrinth. Quite varied, I know. That being said, I really love
horror movies - good ones freak me out and bad ones are just funny.
One of my favorite horror films is Event Horizon because, you know,
wow. I used to watch The Abyss obsessively as a child - I was
probably secretly hoping there was a magical alien city under the
water that I would somehow discover and in which I would be able to
live. Oh, also Memento. And Perfume: The Story of a Murderer! Yeah,
I love psychological thrillers. Oh, oh! Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Yes,
that is one of my favorite comedies.
I don't watch a lot of TV but one of my favorite (1-off) shows is
Harper's Island. I watched The Returned, which is a French
horror/thriller show airing in the UK, and it's brilliant. I'm
pretty bad at keeping up with shows, but I do watch Doctor Who and
I've recently started watching Game of Thrones (my best friend's
influence) and American Horror Story (a co-worker's influence). Oh
my god, how could I have forgotten Spaced?! It's so fucking
fantastic, and who can say no to Simon Pegg and Nick Frost?
As far as music goes, I love classic rock, so some of my favorite
bands are Styx and Journey. Queen, The Doors, Billy Joel - all
great stuff. I really love intensely emotional music - the type of
music that's so ethereal that it's almost eerie. I totally am into
Damien Rice and Elisa's music, and I listen to a lot of foreign
language music because, even though I can't understand what they're
saying most times, I love interpreting the music through the tone
of their voice. I've recently gotten into Edith Piaf - she's
French, and her voice and her music are so beautiful.
Food is easy - I'm very particular about texture, but my two
favorite foods are sushi and gyros.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I can be pretty spacey, and my mind wanders a lot, so unless I have
a problem I'm working through (either personal or work-related) my
mind probably isn't settled on any one thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I enjoy going out for a few pints at a quiet pub. I enjoy staying
home to read or play video games. I enjoy hanging out with a group
of friends. I enjoy going out dancing. I enjoy skulking around
parks and cemeteries, going for walks, and/or playing kids' games
(like hide-and-seek). I'm pretty much down for anything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am terribly arachnophobic. If I see a spider in the room, I have
to keep an eye on it so it doesn't disappear and attack me when my
guard is down. If one gets on me, I will spasm and flail about -
uncontrollably screaming - until I think it is no longer on me and
I am safe. I refuse to kill spiders because I am afraid they will
dodge my attack, and then jump on my hand and proceed to eat and/or
immediately kill me as revenge. I know none of this is logical,
it's just the way it is.
