Reading all this is entirely optional, I'm happy for you to just skip it all and judge me on my photos and/or taste in films and music, etc.
Personally, I think I'm quite a selfish person, but I don't think that's an entirely negative thing, and I don't mean selfish in the sense that I'll horde all the cookies, I mean that I like having time to myself, this is primarily because I want to be a writer when I 'grow up', and writing isn't so easy with someone else in the room staring at you saying "Whatcha doin'?" over and over, similarly, I like to make music and films, both of which involve a fair amount of 'hermit time' where I'll be twiddling listlessly on my keyboards, guitars and drum machine or sat at my computer editing. Having said that, it would be fine if someone I met wanted to collaborate on writing/music/films, but this would be seperate projects and I imagine my own egotistical personal works would still consume a fair deal of my time, but, I'm happy to be creative together, it might be fun, but, the stuff I make is rather lo-fi and shambolic, so don't expect to be working on something polished and beautiful, but, abandon any sense of shame and pretense and just have a lark and it could be worthwhile... However, creative collaboration is not a requirement, I only mention it to illustrate that I am selfish in so much as I want to work on my own ideas, but I'm also unselfish, in that I'm happy to be creative together.
One of the things I'm 'good at' is waffling, or talking absolute garbage, my sense of humour is pretty peculiar, and I can be a little awkward at the best of times, so, apologies in advance for that. However, I'm quite willing to talk about anything, just might need a prompt to get me going...
Quite clearly, I haven't found what I'm looking for, or, maybe I'm looking for the wrong thing in the wrong places, or the right thing in the wrong places, etc. I guess, being pretty laidback about things is quite key, no drama thanks, and it's not because I'm an emotionless robot and can't deal with 'feelings', but, life is rather silly, isn't it, and there are plenty of things not worth getting in a huff about, so if you're the kind of person who scowls angrily when they just miss the bus, or audibly tuts at pedestrians (I know, they are annoying, but they have to live with their stupidity every day, imagine that...), then we probably won't get on, however, as I've already said, I have no clue if I'm looking for the right person in the right places, so perhaps someone who bemoans the world is exactly what I need in my life... no, I'm pretty sure it's not... but, you're welcome to prove me wrong.
You should probably have a tolerance for ambling, and not just in conversation, but preferably up hills, along paths, in markets, junk shops, anywhere really. I grew up in Cornwall, so I do like just milling around beaches/forests/car parks (one of those is a lie), and hopefully you'll be up for walking and seeing where we end up.
Additionally, I like watching films, all sorts of films, from art house to blockbusters, from animation to documentary, similarly, I do like watching weird scruffy bands play gigs in grubby venues, probably because I'm in a weird scruffy band that plays gigs in grubby venues. I do like most cultural activities, galleries, museums, theme parks, hat shops, and if you suggest something I'm more than up for it, though not on Tuesday evenings, that's band practice, sorry.
Sometimes I have a beard, the beard is optional, if you'd prefer no beard please give me 48 hours notice.
I have absolutely no clue what I'm looking for, I don't know who you are, and I'd hate to try and second guess you... so surprise me, but not literally, I'm quite jumpy and might have a 'ninja reflex'. Thanks.
