*** Update: I'm looking to move to Canada in the spring so I guess this profile should only really be of any use to Canadian women. However, if anyone fancies meeting up for a movie or an evening in a blues bar in the meantime feel free to let me know! :) ***
If you're still reading, allow myself to introduce... myself... (10 nerd points if you know the quote...)
I'm a musician, web design nerd, photographer and general creative type. I live my life how I want, have no attachments/kids/ex wives/baggage and if I'm honest I stopped growing up somewhere in my mid 20's... (I take life seriously enough that it doesn't kill me!)
Intelligent though prone to moments of male stupidity; varied sense of humour taking in everything from slapstick to highbrow wordplay and everything in between (except charlie chaplin and laurel and hardy, I just don't find them funny. Or Borat for that matter); learning new stuff; tattoos (on me and on women); love a bit of stand up comedy, tech and general geeking.
Music-wise I'm into most things from Tom Waits to Metallica and Slayer via Classical, Jazz, Blues, Folk and a whole bunch of other stuff too. I'm not too arsed about Hip-Hop and R'n'B, I find them exceptionally bland.
I'm looking for an independent, intelligent, sexually confident/comfortably experimental woman with a sense of humour (a nice bum is also a requirement!). Someone who's happy talking about everything from movies to quantum physics, politics to family guy. Someone who's interested in nights in and out, long lazy days spent in bed or wandering around London, who I find fascinating and confusing and beautiful and compelling.
I have recently come to accept that I have a type: petite (skinny or curvy but definitely short), nerdy/shy, funny/silly, glasses a plus, a little on the bossy side, tattoos a bonus but not essential, pale skin.
I don't want someone who's into all the same things as me, that would be dull. A bit of variety is always good. Show me new things and broaden my horizons and I'll try to do the same thing for you.
I'm not a particularly outdoorsy person, it's all very pretty but I like my comforts and being in field or sharing a portable toilet at a festival with several thousand other people is my idea of hell on toast. If you're looking for a country walks/camping buddy then I'm not for you...
Anything else you want to know, just ask.
I should just add that I hate the word "Banter" with a passion that quite possibly defies linguistic description. The same goes for the Ukelele: it's the badge of the pretentious hipster and it sounds like a piece of crap too!
