My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

I'm just a boy...standing in front of a girl...asking her to click on his face.

I've been told I look better in person than in photos/print; I have an awkward photo presence. But you, yes, you, can be the judge of that, 3 seconds into when we first meet...

Hey. You. Yeah, you., not you sorry. You. The other girl. Yeah, you. That's right. Sorry, could you move out the way? I'm trying to talk to the girl behind you. Ah, yes. There you are. What brings you to this dusty little corner of the world-wide-web? Welcome, whoever you may be. You know the smell of an old book you find at the back of the shelf in Oxfam? That's me all over. You like music? I play guitar and drums and I sing too. You want me to serenade you, yes? I've already written our song. It's called Girl On the Platform, Smile. Oh yes. I WROTE that ancient and irrelevant jingle.. You're impressed. I can feel you reading this and thinking oooooh that's a good song. I'd love some averagely tall red-head to scream that at me over some train tracks. Well, it's on. You got it. Moderate income? Sure, I have that, but I don't like to brag. Own bedroom? Tsch- I got my own bed too. And my own desk. No big deal. And I've traveled, boy have I traveled. Travel again? Well, with the right girl, why not? I lived in Paris for a year. I can ask for two baguettes in French (Je voudrais deux baguettes). That's one for me and one for you. You take a ride on the Dave Train and you get a baguette to yourself. That's the sweetness I'm pedalling. So, what are you waiting for? Let's get this show on the road.


Here are my ambitions for 2015:

Dance more, drink less, worry less, work more or less, do more things, see more new things, learn new skills (bow staff skills...nunchuk skills...girls like guys with skills!!), meet you.

I'm actually currently totally dry. I haven't consumed any alcohol for over a month - I've grown two inches in height and have solved many mathematical problems.

I sometimes read aloud things I've written, although I am honestly in no way pretentious... It's more that I like to stand up in front of people. For 2 years I appeared as one half-of a stand-up double act. We were called G=MC Squared. We had aspirations to perform at Edinburgh's Fringe Festival, but we never got round to it. As of New Years Day, we've decided to get this back on track and are currently writing a new set for 2015. We're gonna wear huge stovepipe hats and mine's gonna have CD mirrors all over it. (CD-ROM mirrors actually - more memory.)

(It'll be way funnier than it sounds, I can assure you.)

I've recently started swing dance lessons and also boxing (I'm just gonna train, though. If I start getting hit in the cheek meat, I am so outta there.)

I play guitar and drums and yell in onehundredpercentboyband. It's a one man band. I'm currently recording my debut album and have an EP coming out on a smaaaall label in January. The EP is called: Post-Hummus and I recorded it all by myself (don't wanna be...)

Here it is:

I'm also in a two-piece band called Armageddon in Retrospect. It's my mate Leigh and I instrument-swapping and boy is it loud.

I play drums, write and "sing" in a skiffle pop geek rock five-piece called Sun Tete Shoe le Card.



I had my second novel published in April 2014. It's called ACHE and is available on Amazon in both paperback and digital ink. It's tanking so far.

I'm writing my third at the moment. It's called SNAPSHOT.

This is some of my schtuff:

I get easily distr-

I run a few miles every other day (I have this awesome Zombies, Run app that I'm addicted to. Who doesn't love getting chased by zombies!?) and also really enjoy setting off in a random direction just walking around London, taking it all in.

I live in Hackney; I've just moved there and obviously, it's awe-some.

For the month of October 2014 I travelled the length and breadth of Eastern Europe to learn how to play Balkanese folk music and drink myself clean for my thirtieth birthday.

Budapest was Buda-best.

I very much like funny girls/talented girls/outgoing girls/geeky girls. If you own a band t-shirt, play an instrument, have tattoos and/or piercings and/or a nice smile, laugh all the time and are just straight-up lovely, I'm yours.

I consider myself a feminist.

The most romantic texts I currently get are from Domino's Pizza, so let's put an end to that together. If you think we'd get on, do send me a message. Or you could just, like, you know, read the message I send you, check out my profile then completely not message me back.
It's your prerogative as Lady of OKCupid Manor.

Thanks for clickin'.

ADDITIONAL: I don't see "favourited'. I'm totally not OkCupid A-list approved. ..
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In Paris I travelled to different companies to help their employees out with their English language skillz (with which they could then pay the billz.) . Now I'm a glorified tour guide and a starving writer living in Hackney. Oh, the shame.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Morrissey impressions, talking, lame lame jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably how enthusiastic I am about almost anything. My nickname at Uni was Enthusiastic Dave. My curly hair. It's particularly virile at the moment.

Also, Very Loud Laugh. I can't stress that enough.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I listen to hours and hours of 6 Music per week. They channel my brain and broadcast it to the nation, it seems!

I love all kinds of music and going to gigs. My favourite bands are probably Hooded Fang, Reuben, The Fall, Neutral Milk Hotel, Brand New, Elliot Smith, Deftones (incredible and underrated!!) =W=, Beirut,Radiohead, The Smiths, Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, The Cinematic Orchestra, yourcodenameis:milo, Menace Beach, Glassjaw, early Foo Fighters, ...Trail of Dead, Elliott Smith, Bon Iver, James Blake, The Misfits, Dead Kennedys, on and on and on it goes...

My favourite films are Anchorman and There Will Be Blood, I suppose.

I read all kinds of books and have a wide taste, but a few of my favourites are Rules of Attraction by B.E.Ellis and Post Office by Bukowski. Also, every word Kurt Vonnegut not only wrote but also thought about AT ANY POINT.

My favourite kind of food is Indian and, of course, cheese.

I like red wine and beer and cocktails and such, although I'm currently dry and thoroughly enjoying it. LOOK MA, NO HANGOVERS!!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Guitar, magic marker, Word, CDs, rum, stereo.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how awesome it would be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out and about, having a good time, checking my okcupid profile in the toilets again and again and again and again (literally every 45 seconds.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I had a time machine I'd go back in time to see LCD Soundsystem's last ever show and THEN kill Hitler.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to have a laugh and would like to go for a drink with a nice, friendly guy.
