I like stories, imagination, comics, books, games and animals. Also trees. I was on here for a while; I don't like this site. I find that people bring out my misanthropy.. which is unfortunate. I usually fall in between things and take no pride in this. I love comics but not superheroes, writing but not academia... I went to a comics meetup and got called a hipster for not liking Buffy. I'm not even a good nerd. I hate hipsters. I no longer speak to blokes with beards and no nautical experience. This means I can rarely buy a coffee in a coffee shop (I'm not joking; I actually turned round and walked out of two in the last week as the beard/checkered shirt/macbook ratio was so suffocating). What else? I'm vegetarian, which means vegans and meat eaters take turns abusing me. I find it only increases my respect for them. (I don't care what people eat.. as long as it's not something I might need)
My favourite dating profiles are the ones that start like this: 'Hi, *something-something-something* and if you've got a problem with that you can just fucking jog on.' Ideally, I'd like to be with someone like that, forever. Failing that, someone who offers to crticise my grammar. That's also extremely attractive.
I play piano and guitar. I should probably have mentioned that earlier, you know, because it's supposed to be cooler.. but it's not representative. I hate music culture. I was in a band for years, but really enjoyed just creating songs.. playing live plateaued at severe discomfort. I mess about with weird ipad instruments now. I like the texture of sound and the voices of materials. I grew up spending every free minute between school and sleep drawing. I think you can learn everything from everything, writing from music, art from sport.
I'm accidentally iconoclastic. And aesthetic. It's funny when you stumble across words that fit perfectly to your contours.
I get on with warm, caring, intelligent, rational, sensitive idiots. Love these: shyness hiding adventurousness; intelligence and ingenuousness; depth and softness.
I love playing sport but not lads, art but not galleries. Tolstoy and Turtles cartoons. Rain drumming at the windows. Zen Quantum Physics. No crystals, homeopathy, dried up academia, or ethnic wall-rugs nor endless slew of huffington post articles. I can't bear self-appointed-gurus. I live near Brighton - that's the norm. You can pay to get a photo of your aura in the local native american accoutrements shop. There's a local native american accoutrements shop.
I exercise my right not to vote. Sometimes, I get anxious.
ps. look they gave me a little plot of land in which I can do what I want> kjbakjakjnkanaknapisspisspisspiss actually, im going to make better use of it and raise k's. k k

This stuff is the product of experience and has in the past made me really sad. It would be nice to be able to chat with someone who gets it sometime. I'm sorry to the nice, cool people for whom it's all obvious and most essentially: goes without saying. I don't meet you Ever enough.
I dislike self righteous pseudo-liberals and the world being reduced to politics. Race and gender studies types fixated on their own demographic. I find the unacknowledged prejudice and hypocrisy awful. The sense of entitlement. I don't think believing in equality makes you a hero; it makes you normal. And I can't think of anything more boring to talk about. I also hate people avoiding thinking about anything that challenges them. I really need to be around discerning and honest, self-effacing people. I want to encourage all the beautiful things in my life.
To give some small idea of why I've mentioned this.. about half the profiles on here start ranting and raving about 'white cisgender men'. Or think that certain haircuts are more seditious than others. I'm trying to be blase - it's really not much fun.
Please don't message me if you:
- think it's fine that 'you can't be racist against white people' is being taught in universities
- throw around words like patriarchy and privilege
- or are threatened by the existence of issues of inequality affecting men.
Having to talk about this upsets me. I don't see the world in these terms and don't want to be around people who do. The hypocrisy of feminism in the west nauseates me :/.
I should also probably mention.. I definitely don't want to meet anyone into drugs; not in a judgemental way - I just know who I am and would welcome the unusual experience of meeting someone with similar sensitivities.
