Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've just come back to this site after a time away from it (long
story). There are some very interesting ladies on here and I'm
enjoying reading your write-ups. Judging by what you say, your
quality is not in general being matched by the male of the species.
Maybe I'm no different? (You can read into that the kind of
self-conscious postmodern irony which seems to be de rigeur on
these kinds of self-summaries.)
I'm perfectly sane and I regard myself as normal. Which of course
could mean that I'm anything but sane and entirely on my own
planet. That's for you to find out.
I enjoy making people laugh, but I also recognise that I sometimes
use humour to deflect. (No, I'm not in therapy, just self aware).
I'm intelligent and caring, but also have a wicked party-animal
streak which I try and keep under control, but which surfaces every
so often. Then we're all in trouble.
I have oodles of curiosity and I get bored if I don't have
something to do or think about. I'm hopeless at being a couch
potato, in fact I don't even make a good couch crisp. But I'm happy
to stay on the couch if there's somebody to keep me there...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Relishing it, filling it, living it to the full, and every so often
screwing it up just a tiny bit.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Plenty of practical things (plumbing, navigating with maps, that
kind of stuff) but I'm an arts/culture person overall. I watch a
lot of films, read plenty of books, and also exercise frequently. I
also touch-type at terrifying speed, although I did graduate from
the Winnie-the-Pooh academy of spelling, unfortunately.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, and the fact that I'm smiling
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I can't even begin to list these. As an ex-pro musician I cannot
live without music (classical, jazz, rock, pop). I tend towards
indie films rather than the blockbusters, but I watch plenty of the
latter as well. I write books as well as read them...where on earth
would I start? And what will we talk about if I list it all here?
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, Air, Water, Warmth, Food, Sex. Not in that order. Being
without anything else I can adapt to. I'm easy going to the point
of it being a fault.
Music (in general, but especially classical)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
That small house somewhere in the mediterranean that I will
eventually have as a little bolt hole.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably at the cinema. Maybe in a bar, laughing. Sometimes just
sat at home slightly dazed, wondering how on earth the week went so
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm not very good at admitting private things in public. But
I'll fess up to them in private. Let's get to that stage and we'll
deal with it then.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You don't mind the fact that there are no car chases in Richard
You love the piano second half of Layla as much as you like the
guitar-driven first half.
You enjoy laughing so that you can hardly breathe.
You may be interested in meeting for a date and hoping it goes
further. Or you'd like to exchange some witty bon mots and just see
where that goes.
Or you've read my profile and think you ought to get in touch
purely for humanitarian reasons
