Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
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
According to a serious online test I did recently my strengths
Strategic thinking; Winning Other Over; Connectedness; Picking Up
Knowledge and Inclusiveness. I'm sure there would be a clever way

doesn't make me sound manipulative. Tie it all together and call it
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
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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

I wear glasses. I grin a lot. I talk loudly and enthusiastically

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hugs & cuddles.
An internet connection.
A way to talk to my parents.
A large, warm and comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Variable! Some weeks there are things to do, some not. No current
