I like stories, imagination, comics, books, games and animals. Also trees. I used to write for a games company. I quit to become a novelist. I spend a lot of loose thought on some composite of aesthetics, philosophy, metaphysics, pokemon, imaginary cats and what they might be doing. I like planes of colour and clear lines, realities behind drawings and words. Sometimes I buy toys. People are annoying.
I was on here for a while; I find that people bring out my misanthropy.. which is unfortunate. I usually fall in between things..sigh. I love comics but not superheroes, writing but not academia... I have a powerful allergy to cliche and therefore 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.
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.' or the ones that list their typical Friday night as being spent 'smashing the patriarchy'. 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. A lot of bullshit is cut through as a byproduct.
I get on with warm, caring, intelligent, rational, sensitive idiots. Love these: shyness hiding adventurousness; intelligence and ingenuousness; depth and irreverence; flint and smoke.
I love sport but not lads, art but not galleries. Tolstoy and Turtles cartoons. Rain drumming at the windows. Zen (but if I see another mandala I'll punch me in my own heart) 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 have an ipad and I despise apple. 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. And I hate american television.
I exercise my right not to vote.

This stuff is the product of experience and has in the past made me really sad. It would be restorative 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.
It not being colonial portugal of the 17th century, I mostly come across fascism thus:
...self righteous pseudo-liberals and the world being reduced to politics. Race and gender studies types fixated on their own demographic. I find the sense of entitlement and unacknowledged prejudice and hypocrisy awful. 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 find unbearably tedious 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. I'd rather be in a big room where everyone's a bit racist toward each other and themselves than a little pampered classroom where people are so removed from their souls they can't even think what they think let alone say it. So I write.. rather than endlessly receive..
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. (such as this...)
Having to talk about this upsets me - I only do so through experience . 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 :/.
Personality creates the only real minority. You don't get issued a shiny badge for that one though.
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. Actually, bollocks.. people mistake judiciousness for being judgemental.
