Very silly person with a headful of bloatflies. Living with depression and advanced sleep phase disorder. Mostly I cope by watching Steven Universe. Communist who doesn't know enough about communism so I'm still reading and my clothes aren't all black yet
Heads up: I'm disinclined to date just now, but I'm eager to meet people.
To the filth who run this site: it is indefensible to run experiments on your users without their consent. Rationalise all you like.
I would like to meet people to play Pokémon or D&D, draw simple comics, and undermine capitalism with.
Places you might find me, roughly in order of frequency: in bed with a laptop, in the library, in front of a games console, on a picket line or march, in a grimy pub.
I'm pretty into reading, politics, history and video games.
New DavelyDave, New Britain: under a New DavelyDave government, all urban roads would be partitioned into highways and Dutch-style cycleways (wide, red, smooth, unbroken, and separated from the road by at least three feet, with angled kerbs). The National Curriculum would include lessons in Python, cookery, personal finance and economics. A Citizen's Income, starting at £11,000, would be made available to everyone, and incorporated into a progressive income tax, with a top band of 80%. Prescription charges out, abolition of the police and prisons, nukes shot into space, donations to political parties banned (each instead is given an identical allowance assuming it obtains a 2% threshold of the vote), the Speaker as Head of State, large parties to be split up along ideological lines by writ, PR, seven federal states (that's regional and English devolution to the uninitiated, which—check the dates—I advocated *way* before it was cool), withdrawal from permanent UN Security Council membership, and lessons in how Yorkshire puddings are a starter, not a side, to be cooked fresh under the meat, and not from frozen, for all citizens. My dad taught me to make them with dozens of eggs.
Despite appearances, I'm a very affectionate person. I like people to think I'm smart, but I'm not all that cerebral; I just kind of feel my way through everything.
My emotional intelligence is a bit hit and miss. I spend most of my time alone, and so my perspective can be a little dippy. In some contexts, I have total self-knowledge, but in others, I struggle to identify patterns in my own behaviour. I am very sensitive to the needs of others when I'm paying attention, but I'm not always paying attention. I am responsive and communicative when it suits me, and completely unreachable when it doesn't. As a result, I'm probably not a very good leader, and I can be a middling boyfriend. The sort of MP who can be electric in the Commons when they've prepared for a topic, but who shrinks from their constituency duties.
