My self-summary
Laid back music lover in his late 20's, looking for friendship and casual relationships and new friends. Interested in many things but mostly the new unfamiliar! Loves music, films, socialising and having a laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
Having as good a time as possible! Currently betwwen jobs but trying not to let that slide me into gloom. Currently volunteer with a number of homeless charitys to help the time go by and do something useful with my life. Oh, and I enjoy cooking, which is useful because my housemates idea of cooking involves emptying the can on to the toast and waiting ten minutes before scraping the chard remains into a cereal ball.. I am a self confessed punk rock and hardcore fanboy but also enjoy drum and bass and all manner of other types of music. Apart from that I'm just taking each day one at a time and not too seriously until I figure out what my real calling in life might consist of the evidence so far suggestsed that its unlikely to be in a call centre).
I’m really good at
Not taking myself too seriously and not judging others too harshly. I like to think that I'm approachable and friendly. I like to try to make people feel comfortable because I know what tis like to be the person in a group or situation who feels like they dont have anythint to say, and so rarely is this actually the case. I'm also really good at rockin out, whatever the context ie. at a gig or for my own or others amusement upon returning from work on a Friday night. I find it helps me limer up and unwind after a hard days stint at the office!. I'm also usually pretty good at persuading others to join in with me in this, and they in turn have confided that it is in fact a great way of shaking off that Friday feeling and preparing for the evening / weekend ahead! Berr opened, volumes up and dance like no one is watching, with one fist in the air!
The first things people usually notice about me
My fine collection of Punk Rock T Shirts and complete and utter inability to grow up! Seriously though I'd like to think that its my quick though slightly dark sense of humour, or my smile and my kindness. I was raised that manners don't cost nothin' and so far i've not found and indiscrepancies in my statements! I can be a bit shy at first but soon light up after a beer and a bit of an ice breaker... Im also known for some slightly individualistic / ecclectic dance moves but just rest in mind that I'm just trying to have a good time as I'm no great pro on the dance floor!

The six things I could never do without
1. Rod Clifford (Master Cider Maker) - I don't want to say too much given the recent media coverage and scandal, but a leading high street brand has recently teamed up with this geneuine genius named 'Rod Clifford' (take note of that name, he'll soon be important) to produce a range of really cheap yet high quality cider. The can looks posh enough to put the homeless off and the proce tag put off the well-to-do's who'd sooner drink a branded beverage at a quid extra. Unnamed high street brand whom I would usually condemn, I salute you!

2. Coffee - without which, nothing happens.

3. Good Friends, Good Times, Lots of Crazy Crap on the Wall - just like Moe Szyslaks ill-fated venture into the Familly Restaurant business, the greatest assets for my continued happiness and sense of well being amonts to little more than the above. Crazy crap not a necessity per se but never hurt anything either. My friends are by far teh most importnat things to me and I'm now in a proveliged stage of having a varieties of crews around the country who I can deoend on and get to visit regularly, I'm not saying I have thousands like those terrifying people on Facebook who fail to make any distinction between their nest friends, their boss and their postman, but they genuinely are the most important things in the world to me. And fortunately I'm currently going through a period of recruitment, so hook me up and maybe you coulod farm a part of this wonderous ragtag collective!

4. Music - As you can probaly see from above, Im a total genre nerd. I've been playing in punk and hardcore bands since I was 14 years old and have a geek-like, almost obssesive-compulsive relationship to the stuff. Through out the years I've found that music can be one of the best antidepressants for more or less anything and one of the most exhaustive and regunerative outlets for just about anything going. I also enjoy a lot of drum and bass and occassionally darker trance and Dubstep, but I'm not nearly so good as remembering track / producer names due to the environments I'm normally exposed to them in. Oh, and I love being challenged with regards to new music. People always think I've self-pigeonholed myself style wish and I am always keen to test this assumption and see if others can influence me. Maybe you could be the one to finally pull me out of this ill-fitting hole!

5. My Bike - I failed my provisional driving test when I was 17 and I have never once looked back on the incident with regret. Living in Manchester is convenient cos its so flat, but i wont take any flack from those who try to argue that its 'simply too hilly' where I live for a bike to be feasible! 'Come to your senses man, its only Bloody Yorkshire!' Joke ranting aside I like it a lot because there are fewer existential freedoms to be experienced in modern metropolitan life than cutting through backedup traffic at close to 30 miles per hour whilst everone swelts in their individual steel box with built in screaming child / nagging spouse. I'm sure one day I'll change my mind about this, propably when theres a screaming child or nagging spouse I'd imagine, but until then, shuv em'. Aslo, I'm not adverse to those who chose to drive and in no sense mean to be all hollier-than-thou about the issue. I just happen to think that bikes are wicked.

6. Sex - sorry if that sounds abrupt, blunt or leery but I'm recently single and haven't gone tis long without for my entire adult life. Im new to this brave new world of online dating and keen to see how the whole thing works and hopefully have a good time doing it. Im not on here just to meet fuck buddies or for casual flings (allthough Im in no way ruling those out either!) but it has become aparrently, painfully obvious to me over the last few months that I very well may go insane soon if the issue isn't appropriately addressed. I wont bore you with any of the finer details, please just be advised that this is how it is, and it is starting to reach a point of mandatory importance!

7. Bubblewrap... I mean I know it only asks for 6 things and I can quite easilly go about my day without it but how is it so damn.. moorishly playable!?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life the universe and everything really. I recently got out of a long term relationship (10 years, we'd been together since college) and I'm now just starting to see the world again for the first time and get used to all the new and exciting possibilities that are out their. I studied Philosophy & History at Univeristy so I'm what my friends tend to call a bit of a 'deep thinker', but I'm interested in lots of stuff, especially films, music, travel and culture. (to be fair most of my friends would describe me as a full-on movie nerd). I recently moved to Manchester and I'm having a great time getting to know the place and meeting new people and really just getting myself personally and spiritually ready to start seeing new people and start enjoying life adventure once again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Something involving drinking with my friends, preferably at a gig or bar with live music. Could just as easilly be kicking back and chilling out at home in this darn economy though. Doh.
