Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a polyamorous guy who loves practising yoga and debating
philosophy, law, and politics. I really enjoy learning other
peoples point of view and discovering the way different people
think. I love pleasing the people in my life, doing the little
things that would make someone smile. I like dressing well and have
a penchant for waistcoats and pocketwatches.
I seem to spend most of my time in an office at uni at the moment
but I also procrastinate by kinda jumping at any opportunity to go
do something new, whether it is simply going to a new restuarant
down the road (like Kinji in Bishopdale, it is amazing) or
exploring a forest with friends, getting lost and spending hours
trying to find our way out. I especially enjoy doing new things
with new people.
At the moment I am involved with a group of lawyers and
investigators (boring types I know) and we are helping people in
prison who claim to be innocent to appeal their case.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm at university doing an Honours degree in Philosophy and a law
degree and somewhere in there attempting to remain a somehat normal
person. I am trying to become a ethical lawyer (whatever that
really means) to the sake of ...um..truth and justice?. I know it
sounds really cheesy and cliché but I really think its important
and to be honest I think its pretty cool. At heart I am really
Occasionally I work as a librarian (not the Librarian) for the
university which is pretty fun because books are always cool.
I am slowly working on my yoga practice with the hope of one day
learning to become a qualified instructor, not because I want to
teach people but just because I enjoy it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Philosophical debates, yoga, and longboarding. Oh and snuggles, I
am an absolute pro at snuggling. The thing that I get complimented
on the most is my cooking which I love because not only is if fun
to cook, its also a wicked way to make people happy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Possibly my mismatched socks. After a while people notice that my
baby blue eyes seem to change to grey depending on my mood. If I am
honest with myself it's probably that I wont stop arguing about one
thing or another, and always have a devilish little grin/smirk on
my face while I do so. I can't help it, I just love hearing other
people defend different ideas.
I seem to have an opinion to share on almost any topic which some
think is because I think I know everything, but really it's because
I know an incredible range of seemingly useless information that
happens to fit into most conversations. How well it fits in is
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Sophie's World, The Master and Margarita, Lord of the Rings,
Fight Club, Bill Bryson's Short History of Nearly Everything,
Siddartha ....everything else I seem to read is text books or
academic journal articles...
Music: I really enjoy electronic music, its hard to be more
specific than that because I rarely listen to the same thing more
than a few times so my taste is always changing. However, I always
like minimal sounding ambient music....I guess I like elevator
music...But at the same time I also like classic rock, some country
music (hey dont judge me), smooth jazz, old school hiphop,
blues...I am desperate not to say the boring old 'i like
everything' but I certainly enjoy quite a range.
Films: The Help, Cashback, any Studio Ghibli film, Brothers Bloom,
Persepolis, Breakfast on Pluto, Winter's Bone, essentially if its
weird and quirky I will probably enjoy it.
Food: Coffee, Tea, any range of curries (Indian, Thai, Japanese,
Kenyan..). I dislike most breakfast foods because they just seem so
boring, I would rather a nice sirloin steak with a pumpkin and
kumara mash with steamed brocolli and fried courgettes, and a
garlic sauce and I would be happy to get up an hour earlier to make
it instead of cereal. I enjoy new flavours and different ways of
doing the same dish. However, I also simple meals and certainly do
resort to fast food when I am feeling too lazy so I think I can say
I am not a foodie...either way I am not judgemental of what others
cook (to be honest the idea of someone cooking for me sounds like
such a treat I don't know if I would take any notice) I simply like
creating new things and sharing them with people.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Philosophy! I love talking about different ideas and theories and
reflecting on the way that other people think. Enjoying philosophy
so much tends to make people think I am argumentative but really I
just want to know what other people think about a topic
Practicing yoga on the grass as the sun rises
Socrates, the great and noble thinker...well actually I mean my
little black and white cat whose name is Socrates who always sits
with me when I read.
Time set aside in my day to cook a nice meal; whether it is an
Indian curry, a batch of fresh gyoza (japanese dumplings), or
simply a nice steak, either way I absolutely adore cooking
(especially when I get to cook for other people).
My duvet is quite possibly the most comfortable thing in this
world, it is like being in a cloud but made of feathers instead of
rain...actually being in a cloud would be really wet and cold so
that is a terrible simile...um yea.
I am also a real sucker for long, deep, and meaningful
conversations that go on into the wee small hours so I would hardly
survive if I didnt have people to talk with (I would be stuck
talking to myself and then everyone would know I am completely
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to solve all the worlds problems on my own (essentially ethics
and law and politics). Or about how big the universe is, it's so
incredibly big...like if you lay in the grass at night and stare at
the stars and try and comprehend that you are glued to the bottom
of a rock, hurtling around a burning ball of gas, coming from
nowhere andon the way to some other nowhere (essentially
astrophysics). Or why a group of squids is not called a squad, it
would be such an awesome name and is such a missed
How relationships work and why people muck them up. Being
polyamorous (having multiple relationships) has meant that I spend
heaps of time reflecting on what I want out of the different
relationships in my life. This in part turns into a reflection on
human nature and the way that societal norms distort it.
The way that things work is another thing I spend a lot of time
thinking about. I grew up on a farm so I spent my childhood fixing
different things that were broken, and sometimes taking them apart
to see how they worked an breaking them in the process but I swear
I fixed them all in the end. Well maybe not all but I got most of
them. I once spent about half an hour explaining to a friend why
feeler guages are such an interesting tool...you probably dont want
to ask about that, it is most likely more boring than it sounds. At
some point in life I would really like to make a watch because they
are such awesomely intricate little machines that it blows my mind
that people make them by hand.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Possibly reading a book on the couch, possibly hurtling madly down
a steep hill on a piece of wood or maybe standing in my kitchen
trying to think of what to make next. I love going out and partying
but being a poor student seems to make that less viable than I
would like so it usually turns into drinking cheap (but tasteful)
wine on the lawn and watching the stars come out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
The kind of person I find most attractive is someone who is
passionate about something and is interested in sharing that
passion with someone new. It really doesnt matter what it is I just
love seeing the sparkle in someones eye as they talk about
something they really enjoy. I prefer someone who isn't too afraid
to speak their own mind when someone disagrees wth them and who can
entertain different points of view to their own.
If you are interested in polyamory then I would love to talk with
you about anything that you might want to know.
If you want to explore a forest, or a mountain, or a cave, or even
some new cafe you havent been to then I would be honoured to invite
you to join my new Explorers Club which currently consists of...um
