My self-summary
To summarise myself I’ll just give you a list, in no particular order, of things that are important to me:

Being creative:
Be it writing stories, drawing, coming up with ideas for films and videos I never have the time, resources or collaborators to make.

I presently spend most of my free time working on a web comic I created, which is most about tech/geek/science culture.

Most of subscriptions on YouTube are to edutainment channels.I love watching shows about science and history, from the more simple TV shows like Brian Cox’s Wonders or Horizon. I also occasionally go on information binges on Wikipedia.

Although much later (by about 10 years) than I intended, I'm finally going to University (a local one), hopefully starting in September.

This is more of an aspirational thing, and I don’t want to give the impression I am a hugely experienced traveller because I am not. However I do like travelling to new places, and not to just enjoy good weather and sun bathe on a beach. I like to explore new places, see incredible views and visit interesting cities and towns from all over the world.

Formula 1:
I’m a huge fan of Formula 1, although I appreciate that this is something of a marmite sport to follow and as such don't bore people who aren't interested about it.

Note: My height, my age, and my photographs are honest. I recently read that 80% of people on online dating websites lie about these things, so the only way to make my profile compete against those 80% was to either lie myself or add this disclaimer.
What I’m doing with my life
I recently moved to Norwich to do a Computing Science degree at the UEA. I've just started and I am always looking to meet new people.

By night and weekend I spend my time working on my various creative endeavours - most notably a satirical webcomic (focused mainly on science, technology and geek culture) which takes up a lot of my time thanks to the fact I am trying to keep to a Monday / Wednesday / Friday publishing schedule. The humour is like xkcd, only not quite as smart. If you’re interested you can see it here:

My Web Comic: Random Perspective Comic
I’m really good at
I think I have good critical analysis skills and I’m a good troubleshooter and problem solver.

I also hope that I come up with good stories. I wrote a novel when I was 18 and I’ve since been working on a [unrelated] series of novels for a while (well I’m halfway through the first one) - so I hope I’m not wasting my time…

I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably working on my ideas for the webcomics I will publish the following week… they currently take up a lot of my time!
You should message me if
As you've probably noticed, my profile states I'm in a non monogamous, open relationship, and it's the elephant in the room. So I will clarify that it's not my intention to seek the love of my life - however relationship or no relationship I never believe that's something you should actively seek anyway - it's something you either discover or grows.

However, just because I'm not seeking the love of my life - don't mistake that as meaning I'm a player or I'm seeking hook ups. I'm definitely not. Ultimately, my profile on here is the same it has always been since creating it back in 2008 - to find like minded interesting people. One thing OK Cupid has taught me is that you can connect with people on many different levels, sometimes it's intellectually, sometimes it's on your sense of humour, sometimes it's on your sexuality/sex drive, on the very lucky times it is on multiple levels.

If you are just on here to find a potential husband then I'm not who you are looking for, however if you have read my profile and think that we match on an intellectual or philosophical level and you share a similar philosophy on life, then I would love to talk to you.

Ultimately, that's why I'm here: I'm looking to meet people who share in my philosophy on life, even if they don't necessarily agree with everything. I love to have intense and interesting discussions, to have my ideas challenged (so long as there is give and take in those discussions) - so with that in mind feel free to contact me about anything.

If you'd like some pointers though, here are a few things to get the conversation started:

* If you have read my webcomic and you liked it.
* If you like to read sci fi and are interested in finding out about my novel
* Formula 1
* If you have an interest in computer games.
* If you are interested in Anime and would like to recommend some for me to watch.
* If you are a fascinated by the Internet, work in the field, and want to talk about the development of the technology
* If you are coming to Norfolk, think we would get on, and would like to meet up
* If you want to have an open minded discussion about the future of relationships, in the 21st century, gender and sexuality equality
The two of us
