I do remain, in spite of any evidence, something of a classical romantic. I adore connecting with a person, a sense of wonder when discovering the energy they possess for their passions and their delight in sharing that energy; or enjoying introducing someone to a new place, book, film (etc) and rediscovering that thing through their eyes.
That makes me sound like a shocking hipster or pretentious idiot. Hopefully though the meaning untangled itself from the shackles of language and made it out okay.
I'm (clearly) not a person to use five words when 500 and some opaque imagery is an option. I find the idea of trying to sum myself up
In a few neat boxes like this an exercise in futility, but rest assured I'll be taking first impressions about you from the same boxes... Thinking about it, I do wonder how I've managed ever to stumble over interesting people on here but I have some really great friends I first encountered on this site so I guess it works for me.
I find myself constantly baffled on this site by the people I meant to have loads in common with who list music gigs as their main interest.
Perhaps I can be summed up by:- Went to Latitude one year, only watch one band play and that was because everything else stopped/closed as Suede was the band in question. Spent the rest of Latitude in the Comedy and Literary tents having an awesome time (So saw lots of Robin Ince and kept out of the rain too). If you're thinking "sounds like a good festival experience" then we will probably get on awesomely.
