**I recently took up gymnastics and have been delighted to discover it's all coming quite easily. I'm actually quite a lot more flexible than I thought and, having never even done a handstand before, eight weeks later I'm now able to complete back and front trucks, back and front flips, cartwheels, handstands, and nearly able to do a round off.
Are you up for being flexible with me?
What can I share about myself. Always a tricky one this, as I'm never quite sure how much to disclose (bloody non-existent interior monologue). Here goes then...
I'm shocked to discover others who enjoy banter and witticisms, pleasantly shocked I should add.
My last two significant relationships were with ladies in the medical field (both nurses), so I'm wondering if it's just me veins that draw the medicos to me, or something else. (For the sake of my ego, let's just say it's great veins).
I'm English, and despite not having lived there in ages, I retain a biting sense of sarcasm and acrid sense of humour.
I despise Bowdlerized English. The letter U is beautiful, so I have no idea what trauma that man suffered to cause him to detest the letter so much.
I think dating should be fun. Yes, you read that right, not weeping about ex-boyfriends and girlfriends, but good fun. Surely you remember the whole cheesy jokes and laughter thing? Or have you been on dating sites for so long that it's become an odious chore, the like of cleaning shower tile grouting using a very worn toothbrush which was last used by someone with halitosis.
I love the ocean. Perhaps it's more accurate to say that I'm in love with the ocean, but don't worry, there's enough love left for a relationship too, as long as you're part Dolphin, Manatee or other water based mammal. (In a pinch, I'll accept land mammals too).
I love language. Body language (your vestigial tail wagging as I gently scratch your chin); Sign Language (picture me flicking the vees whilst driving, not AUSLAN, although I think that's cool too); Foreign Language(s), such as economists rattling on about QE, instead of saying, "Our fiscal policy was dreamt up one Friday night after consuming a few too many sherbets, so we're PRINTING LOTS OF MONEY TO MAKE UP FOR IT!" J'aime la langue. Me encanta el idioma. أنا أحب اللغة我愛語言 You get the picture.
Books, I own them, I caress them, I read them, I love them.
Conversation is king. If you have trouble conversing, don't worry I'll do enough talking for everyone in the room. Your mission, should you care to accept it, will be to get a word in edgewise.
Spelling and grammar. "U no wat I mean, nuff said lol". Really? Which tribe or planet are you from?
I'm strongly attracted to bisexual women, and have enjoyed several open relationships. That said, I'm not afraid of monogamy or commitment, but it would take a VERY special person to convince me of the relative merits of the aforementioned.
Authors: Orwell, PKD, Hitchens, Harris, Dawkins, Ambrose, Simon Singh, Irvine Welsh and hundreds more.
Films: Blade Runner, The Fifth Element, Leon, Metropolis, The Battleship Potemkin, Das Boot, Trainspotting, Seven Samurai, Spirited Away, and hundreds more.
Music: Everything except and manufactured pop and modern country music. With the latter, it's that affected nasal twang, whining on how, "It was raining the day momma got out of prison". With the former, there should be a product recall for the likes of the Beibers of the world.
TV: Don't watch the box much, but notable exceptions would include Time Team, various documentaries, and news feeds.
In that vein, I once dated a guy but found it wasn't for me due to the lack of lovely lady bits. Of course, I've never been to Thailand......
