My self-summary
Fun, spontaneous, open, warm, romantic and looking for someone to share life with.

I am a person who is happy to spend time alone but would love someone special for sharing hugs, cuddles and other stuff ;)
I like to make the most of my time off. Usually I enjoy going to the theatre and cinema, as well as anything else going on in the city that is a little different; festivals, tours, events, whatever! Cinema is actually still one of my favourite things. I still get a little thrill of excitement when the lights go down and the movie starts, especially if it's something that I have been really looking forward to. It's magic!

I don't live for the weekend and I don't mind what the Jones's are up to - I've no interest in keeping up ;)
What I’m doing with my life
Making the most of it, planning some trips, working hard. Looking for new people and new interests. It's time for change!

I started the Couch to 5K programme last year then accidentally stopped for a holiday to Florence, I must start again and I will be doing my absolute best to stick with it to the end. Again. I do Pilates as well and enjoy that, very calming and relaxing at least until the instructor comes over to pull your leg(s) in directions they shouldn't naturally go :D
I’m really good at
Being spontaneous, having fun, being honest with people, listening, being a good friend.

Doing fun stuff during the week so that I'm not living for the weekend!
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure - my curly hair? Or maybe my freckled eye! My smiley face! I have no idea, I'll have to ask someone. Or you can tell me after we meet!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love to read! I mostly read fiction of all kinds, adults, young adults, even kids books but I also enjoy reading books that will expand my horizons and challenge the way I think. The Shadow of the Wind is one of my favourites.

Movies-I go to a lot of films and enjoy all sorts. I'm a bit of a softie so tend to cry at films. I like a lot of oldies like Some Like It Hot or Casablanca :) I really loved Grand Budapest Hotel recently. I came out of the cinema with a pain in my face from grinning the whole way through!

TV shows I enjoy are Game of Thrones, Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, House, Modern Family, Greys Anatomy, Whitechapel, New Girl, Criminal Minds and probably a couple more I've forgotten. Oh yeah...Hawaii five-0 :D And just lately - the Great British Bake Off! That's a lot of shows for a girl who doesn't own a TV! Oh I just finished Grimm on Netflix too.

I enjoy lots of music but I am not a music aficionado by any means. It's rare that I know the (proper) words to a song or who sings it or what it's called - it's a unique talent that I have, lol.

Food-I love eating out and trying new foods and I would love someone to be able to share tasty meals with in restaurants or at home. Thai, Italian and sushi are some of my favourites. I'm not a regular cook but cooking for two makes it that bit more fun :)
The six things I could never do without
Oh dear, six things. In no particular order:

#1 My car for the independence it gives me. It also enables spontaneous road trips!

#2 books because I just love to read.

#3 my family - not really a thing but I still couldn't do without them.

#4 friends - same as above, couldn't be without friends, I don't know how people without real friends even enjoy life! They don't know what they are missing.

#5 tasty food and drink - mmmm

#6 my laptop and internets I guess-couldn't work (or be on here) without them!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What a small, small world it really is; the future; where my life is going.
Maybe also what I'm having for lunch. Ok that's mostly when I'm in work ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Having Friday drinks with friends or work colleagues or both. Or maybe at the theatre, a gig or movie with friends. After a particularly hectic and social week I might be found horizontal on the sofa, chilling and recharging my batteries.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing too private - nerdy, intelligent boys are my weakness ;)
You should message me if
If OkCupid doesn't give us mortal enemy percentages :D
