Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Bit of a hand full. Come without a much needed manual. Sorry.
But then there's this: I am awkward, fun, sociable, up for good
discussions and always game to explore new things. I also love to
just forget the world exists and watch movies online in bed with
popcorn going places where it shouldn't.
I tend to move around western/northern Europe and need a man who
wants to make me stay somewhere as that's where we are together
(and from there we'd travel together, I am not a homebody). This
also means I may not technically be in Manchester right now, but
it's a matter of a few hours and I could be. Or in Berlin,
Brussels, Oslo, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Reykjavik,
Vienna, Edinburgh... That are about the capitals of the countries I
have lived or would live (though there may be other options, try
me). You there or want to be there? It might just work out, I move
in a heartbeat.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a storyteller at heart and by profession, telling my own
stories and those of others. But this is not your ordinary stuff.
As I am a graphic designer and a visual & sound artist I
explore the various realms and look for new ways to engage people.
I also coach others in storytelling and do a range of other things
when the situation calls for it (and it does so frequently).
What I am also doing with my life, albeit not desperately, is
keeping an eye open for that one Mr. Right with whom to eventually
build a life and future together. True romantic here.
Other than that: trying to figure it all out and having a good time
with the people I care about.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Storytelling, I'd hope.
Other than that people tell me I'm emphatic, smart, inventive and
loyal. I have a weird sense of humour which often goes quite dark,
not everyone's cuppa.
One day I hope to find someone and together become the best dads
one could possibly find.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Puppy eyes. They lure you in and never let you go. Be warned,
m'dear, be warned.
Or, seen from the other side: my bum. Cute as hell.
(I've been told it looks very fuckable. I'll just put it out there.
Do with it what you will. Not with my bum, with the statement. You
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As much as I write, I hardly read. I'll go stand in a corner
I will never publicly admit to the lousy tv shows I'm addicted too,
but I refuse to wait a week to see what happens next. I marathon
shows on rainy days that are just meant for procrastination. Oh
what a joy it'd be to procrastinate together.
As for food... I am a vegan, rarely going into vegetarian
territory. This is important as I don't date living graveyards
(i.e. carnivores). The idea of sticking my tongue somewhere where
death just passed I find repulsive, let along keeping corpses in my
fridge (also, I believe in treating animals with respect and
But keep the animals out and this boy eats about everything save
for cauliflower (I mean, really?). Particularly fond of vegan
bangers & mash (comfort food!), mediterranean and anything
middle-eastern. Total foodie here, love to spend entire days in the
Music and movies... from mainstream to obscure, from the classics
to the post-neo-futuro stuff. It can be anything, everything and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Imagination and dreams are the only two things I truly need.
What would be nice in addition is a luscious
partner/boyfriend/eventual husband and someday a bunch of kids
And of course a nice home, friends, good food, enough money to
enjoy life a bit and, y'know, the basics.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where to live next/what to do next/how to look next/who to meet
I love to keep changing things up. At the same time I do long for
stability as I actually hate change. I'm weird like that.
(When it comes to love I'm fairly traditional though (other than
this bloke-on-bloke action): I am one for the monogamous long-term
thing with wedding bells and toddlers (less a fan of babies) and
once we're old a retirement somewhere on a remote island where the
two of us spend our golden years hiding from the world in eternal
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing as typical. It can be out in the town doing drinks
and a movie with friends. It can be clubbing (particularly a fan of
latin and old skool drum 'n bass), you get bonus points if you can
dance). It can be slaving for a deadline behind my laptop. I can
have that sudden brilliant idea and have to work on it straight
away. I can be too tired to do anything and just sleep. I can be
cooking a meal at home for friends. I can be removed by security
from that roller coaster I just love too much. Friday night can be
so many things.
(I also run my own shizzle, which means I work totally irregular
and have no Friday night feeling like most other people do. The
plus side of this is that I am flexible as hell and live life
largely according to my own rules.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a nerd and lovin' it.
Actually, I admit much much more in the public realm through my
storytelling but let me introduce that to you slowly.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are looking for either new friends or something serious. I am
not the kind for a hookup or just a quick fuck. Not saying sex
ain't important, but love comes first. If you want sex on the first
or second date, keep looking elsewhere. We'll get there but I need
to know you're worth it first.
Invest in me and I invest in you (assuming we like each
Also: the vegetarian thing is not a joke. If you're convinced
eating animals is, or remains, part of your life, keep looking
elsewhere. It seriously disgusts me, no matter how hot you
And if you're truly interested, keep in mind I don't just want a
relationship. One day I want a family. That's not up for
discussion. Not your thing? Keep looking elsewhere.
Oh, and while I might be a sucker for fairy tales, I don't date
religious folk. I really don't have time to pretend fairy tales are
real, nor do I understand the desire to belong to something that is
here to oppress people. Faith I can understand, religion less so. I
will be nice to your mum though if she's religious, as long as she
sincerely respects her kid as a gay or bi- person and his partner
(that'd be me, I guess).
I am not old old, but I am at that stage in life where I know what
I want and don't want to fool around anymore when it comes to love.
I do love to fool around with the one I love though. If you're like
that too and we match on other levels, who knows how amazing things
could be? I'm hella fun.
