My self-summary
Hello, I’m Stephen.

I reckon everyone’s the worst judge of their own character, but it’s the only thing you’ve got to go on. So….

Bit of an odd ball, I like it. I think it’s weird not to be weird.

Deep thinker. Socialist leaning. Anti-theist. But despite these very serious things I reckon I’m a lot of fun. Still a bit of a hedonist at heart.

Been asked recently to choose five words to describe myself, I came up with:

Empathetic, Inquisitive, Ethical, Cheerful and Bright

It was for an interview though, so it's all lies.

I don't think I'm very straight acting... but then I meet other gay guys and I'm Mr T in comparison. So yeah, I guess I'm a masculine androphile.

Done a bit of travelling. South East Asia. Plan to do a lot more when money and time allow.

Big nerd. I love watching documentaries. Physics in particular. Spend a lot more time playing computer games than a man of my age probably should but whatever. I’d ruin you on Halo.

I don't drive. I have no aspiration to... ever. I think we have enough cars already. I cycle everywhere. I'm getting comments on how nice my arse is looking, I put it down to this fact.

Recently been inspired by another OKcupid user to take the Myers-Briggs personality test. I came out as ESFJ the "Care-giver". Kinda makes me sound like a pussy... but it's actually a little spooky how accurate it gets most of it. So I guess I'm looking for a masculine Artist (ISFP) or Idealist ( INFP)?
What I’m doing with my life
Well... I'm at an interesting time in my life. Good things are happening.
I’m really good at
Talking to just about anyone. Making quiet and shy people come out of their shells. I'm much more a fan of the insecure than of the egocentric.


Drinking, I'm VERY good at drinking.

Pissing people off while drinking and arguing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hybrid ginger beard. Scottish/Irish heritage has left me with this curse. That is the only ginger hair on my body though... in case you were wondering.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver, Brave New World - Aldous Huxley, His Dark Materials Trilogy - Philip Pullman, 1984 - George Orwell, End of Faith - Sam Harris, God Delusion - Richard Dawkins, anything by Chuck Palahniuk... and more

Movies: V for Vendetta, The Mist, The Aliens series, Watchmen, Requiem for a Dream, Crash, City of God, The Thing, Withnail & I, Open Hearts, Fight Club... and more

Shows: American Dad, Drawn Together, Peep show, Spaced, Utopia, Fresh Meat, Black Books... and more

Music: Really eclectic. From gay electro rock (garbage) to drum and bass (Black Sun Empire) to grunge (sound garden) to indie (snow patrol). Love a lot of house and pop at the moment... maybe I'm losing touch... or just losing my music hang ups.

Food? Yes, please. I'm very easy with food.
Six things I could never do without
I'm really not very materialistic... I'll come back to this after a think.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Super massive black holes, neutron stars, galaxies colliding, what other dimensions look like, how I’d make the nicest dictator ever, how I could make the perfect justice and political system if I could only read minds!... and some really filthy sweaty things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Not much of a routine person. If I'm not working and I've got money then I guess I'll be with friends either in or out. If I'm poor I'll be gaming it on either my PC or xbox.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm very curious about polyamory
You should message me if
You have any inclination. If I'm on here I'm usually at work killing time, so please feel free to distract / entertain / arouse me!

No Vegans.
