My self-summary
Ah, so this is the bit where I make myself sound fantastic, yes?

It won't happen. I am not fantastic. Not that there aren't good things about me (I play guitar, I have a tattoo, I teach English (TEFL) in Rome in Italy, I am originally from London, etc). Hmm, that was my attempt to use the tagging system to my advantage.

Didn't work. I'm just OK. I'm pleasant company if you like that sort of thing. I'm well educated and well read and have (wrong) opinions about most things.

If you're in or around Rome, have a word.

I am vacuous, perspicacious, and conflicted
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to salvage it after having spent most of my twenties acting like things were just going to happen to me. So far this hasn't meant anything huge on a global scale, but I've done a teaching qualification and moved from London to Rome and am still in the phase where you wander about saying gosh at all the old stuff they have here. Trying to learn Italian, trying to be properly good at something for a change, trying not to worry.
I’m really good at
Finicky things like spelling, grammar and punctuation. Pub quizzes. Rubbish animal impressions.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to come across as either moody and withdrawn or extrovert and arrogant.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A. Favourite living authors are Nicholson Baker and Haruki Murakami, and the more I read of Roddy Doyle the more impressed I am. I also use Robert B. Parker's detective novels as moderately nutritional fodder.

B. Off the top of my head, 10 of my favourite films are Nikita, Withnail & I, Sex Lies & Videotape, Stealing Beauty, Office Space, Twelve Angry Men, The Exorcist, Die Hard, Shaun of the Dead and Casablanca. The last three films I saw all had Christopher Plummer in, which made me say "No fucking way" out loud.

C. Last.fm seems to think my 21 favourites are Belle & Sebastian, the Beatles, Elvis Costello, Billy Bragg, the Jam, the Clash, the Cardigans, Tom Waits, Suzanne Vega, Nick Drake, Rino Gaetano, Simon & Garfunkel, the Rutles, the Strokes, Paul McCartney, the Pixies, The Stone Roses, Kings of Leon, Mull Historical Society, Teenage Fanclub and the Sugargliders. Who am I to argue?

D. Moving to Italy was easy because I like their food. I like most things and have a fondness for warm carbohydrate, but I don't eat anything that comes from the sea except salt.
The six things I could never do without
Mental stimulus, people to bounce off, a warm place to lie, physical pleasures, new smells and unpredictability.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I've got a list of these somewhere. I'll get back to you.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really haven't a clue about most things. This makes me insufferably vague or pleasingly tolerant.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 26–40
  • Near me
  • For new friends
You should message me if
You Think It's A Good Idea (I Am Not Happy About All This Capitalisation).

Also, if you are in or around Rome and want to talk English to someone. I'm good at that.
