I am a writer and have just finished my first children's novel. I am also an English lecturer and have lived in Tokyo and Vietnam. I love to travel, especially in Asia. I like reading and am completely addicted to films. I'm into chinese food (crazy for dim-sum), going to the gym and monkeys; I would love to live in a lighthouse, enjoy thunder storms and snow, like watching football, find children very amusing, love going out with friends and talking for hours, enjoy chatting in bed, have never been skiing and own the world's stupidest dog. I don't expect every relationship to work out, but it's always great to make new friendships.
I don't like arrogance or carelessness with other people. A sense of humour is pretty important, as well as kindness, but I value people I can make a connection with - the sort of situation where you think the same sort of things but always manage to surprise and fascinate each other, where someone makes you want to be the best version of yourself, but also makes you feel totally comfortable. And if someone can spell better than me, that would also be a bonus. I reckon I've said it all already, but whether it's friendship or a love to outlast even mankind itself and the universe as we know it, it would be nice if you liked dimsum. I can't stress the importance of dimsum enough. If you like going for long walks, reading books out loud, seeing plays and talking about them, going to pubs and falling over and indulging in pointless but amusing running jokes then lets meet up.
I am imaginative, silly, and thoughtful
