Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! My name is Michael. I'm a trans guy who lives in the South West
of England (Cornwall). I transitioned from female to male. I chose
not to have bottom surgery and therefore do not have a biological
dick (I do, however, have plenty of prosthetics - and hey, they'll
never go soft on you ;D ). I have had top surgery and therefore
have a typically masculine chest. I have also been on hormones for
a decent amount of time and have as much body hair as the next
Now that that's out of the way... I'm an easygoing guy who is a bit
of an introvert (but I'm not too shy, and I'm not particularly
socially awkward, I'm just not one who wants to go out every
night). I enjoy a quiet night in as much as a pint down the pub,
film or dinner.
I don't really have a preference when it comes to my sexuality. All
genders are welcome to contact me, and genitalia is largely
irrelevant to me. I also welcome contact from poly people and
people who are already in relationships but who are (mutually)
looking for something a little extra. I'm extremely
I'm also a bit of a kinkster, and I'm a switch with dominant
leanings. Kink isn't a requirement or anything, but just throwing
that out there.
I'm fairly politically minded, and I'm a feminist who believes in
equality for everyone. I have a strong sense of social justice and
am extremely aware of privilege and intersectionality. I'm one of
those hippie liberals that some people seem to hate so much.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in admin for Trading Standards. I'm also a freelance
journalist and a writer (I prefer fiction, but journalism helps pay
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I like to think that I'm good at writing! I write all kinds of
things, from short stories to novels. Queer themes are my favourite
thing to write about, but I branch out into all sorts of things as
I don't really like tying myself down to a particular genre. I also
write a fair bit of (mostly gay) porn, so if you're interested in
that, I don't mind sharing. ;D
I also enjoy videogames, especially crafting games and
simulation/time management games. I play Minecraft most often at
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably that I'm off in my own little world. I'm constantly lost
in thought and I'm often not completely aware of my surroundings -
too busy in my own head to take too much notice. It's probably the
writer in me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh, books. I could go on forever about books. My hands down
favourite author is Neil Gaiman, with his Sandman graphic novels
topping the list. From there, it's mostly sci-fi and fantasy,
though I particularly enjoy the likes of Tad Williams, George R.R.
Martin and Neal Stephenson.
I watch a loot of TV shows - right now my favourite would have to
be Doctor Who, Firefly, Sherlock, Elementary, The Mentalist,
Supernatural, Being Human (UK) and Hannibal.
My favourite film genre is sci-fi, and I'm really looking forward
to the films coming out this year (it seems like it's going to be a
big year for sci-fi). My favourite film titles at the moment are:
Moon, The Dark Knight, 28 Days Later and Serenity.
I'm also a sucker for kids' films, especially Pixar.
I listen to music across all genres, but I'm especially fond of
music that tells a story (I'm fond of stories in general). I listen
to music from dubstep to bluegrass, so I'm really open-minded genre
wise. I just like what I like. I love talking about music though,
so if you're a music fanatic, feel free to strike up a conversation
and/or give me some suggestions!
I'm a huge fan of Rooster Teeth and Achievement Hunter!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Internet, books, friendship, family, my pets and music.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly, I spend a lot of time thinking about injustice in the
world, especially in the form of oppression. I think that and the
stories that I want to write pretty much occupy most of my day to
day thoughts (other than the boring stuff, like whether I want soup
or a sandwich for lunch).
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm either likely to be having a pint, catching a film or just at
home on the internet (watching a lot of Roosterteeth on youtube
atm). Nothing too exciting - I save that for the weekends. :p
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've already admitted that in my self-summary - I'm a trans guy.
It's a huge part of my life as I engage with it constantly in an
effort to support other trans people, but it's also one of the most
private parts of my life due to the oppression and ridicule that
trans people face.

to know someone than write out some list of requirements in a
