My self-summary
I'm looking for a lover-that-starts-as-a-friend. I'm interested in all kinds of things, in soaking up information and experiences like a sponge and in sharing them with other people. I am very sociable and quite extroverted, and get really incredibly enthusiastic about new things.
According to a serious online test I did recently my strengths are:
Strategic thinking; Winning Other Over; Connectedness; Picking Up Knowledge and Inclusiveness. I'm sure there would be a clever way of working those into a dating profile, but I can't of one that doesn't make me sound manipulative. Tie it all together and call it "friendly".
If you like to burst into song at the drop of a hat (regardless of whether you can sing) then we're likely to get on well.
Lastly, if we meet, I am 99% likely to want to give you a hug.
What I’m doing with my life
Playing RPGs, watching geeky films, socialising, answering ever-increasing numbers of questions here (I swear this this has subliminal messages), going to kink events, working in customer services helping people.
I’m really good at
Singing, officiating at Roller Derby bouts, playing role-playing games, knowing the rules of games but not abusing them, recommending things with good reason.
The first things people usually notice about me
I wear glasses. I grin a lot. I talk loudly and enthusiastically about all the things I like. I look like I'd cheerfully give you a hug to say hi. Possibly some Kermode-esque flappy hand waving.

Food: Pasta and pizza, really good well-made burgers, the kind of food that costs a small fortune but is totally worth it.
The six things I could never do without
Hugs & cuddles.
An internet connection.
A way to talk to my parents.
Dice.
Ice cream.
A large, warm and comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever song is currently playing on the jukebox in my brain. Stories and how we're all involved in them. Things that are happening in games that I'm in. What I should be doing to earn money. Why I'm up so late again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Variable! Some weeks there are things to do, some not. No current regular schedule. I have a regular game that I'm in, and some recurring weekend events. Friday's are quite often a recharge for the weekend ahead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
At one time I had a massive crush on Alyson Hannigan (Willow from Buffy) and was pretty disappointed when she got married.
You should message me if
Any of this sounds interesting to you. I am absolutely a social person and I'm always up for meeting new friends and helping people to get introduced to things.

Also if you a) know who Ramona Flowers is and b) think she was pretty cool, despite, well, everything else.
