Argh. How to translate my personality into a paragraph of text that won't scare or repulse? I'm a front line manager in Customer Services for a local housing association/charity. I do this because it pays ok and requires very little personal investment allowing me to please myself for the rest of my time. My main goal is to save enough to get my own place in Canterbury, where I went to university. My multifarious interests include psychology (I am a graduate psychologist), anthropology, role-play-gaming, ebaying, scifi, fantasy, horror, especially Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, David Mitchell and classics such as Jane Austen, etc etc. I also write my own fiction. I hope to write for kids someday or really childish adults. I love anything weird and wonderful. I've been a practising witch since I was 15 but I'm philosophical about it and not at all predisposed towards black velvet and pewter jewelry. I'm a nice person, a bit crabby and introverted. Sometimes I come off as a bit scary and aloof. I have a wicked sense of humour that veers toward the dark and twisty at times. I also think I should rule the world. Dislikes include hypocrisy, people who play tedious mind games, infidelity, people who use text talk or omit punctuation in e-mails, unrepentant morons, hate criminals and the unneccessarily whiny.
I am unusual, insightful, and slightly evil
I've had various jobs, mostly involving admin, teaching or healthcare. My current job involves providing customer support to clients of a housing association. These days that means bedroom tax, homelessness and **shudder** universal credit. I also write reports and work on projects. What I really want to do is write novels.
b)Aliens, the Directors Cut, The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, V for Vendetta, Labyrinth, most Tarantino films, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Spaceballs, Donnie Darko, Secretary, Harry Potter, Southpark the movie, Jay & silent Bob films, When Harry Met Sally, Love Actually, lots of daft horror films, lots of soppy rom-coms and anything scifi/fantasy. Except that Dungeons&Dragons film with Jeremy Irons. That was crap.
c) Metallica, Biffy Clyro, Slipknot, Korn, Tori Amos, Nirvana, Foo-fighters, Kings of Leon, Florence & the Machine, Kate Bush, Sisters of Mercy, U2, Greenday, The Dead Weather, The Kills, opera, piano/violin classics.
d) Chocolate, mexican food, italian food, a nice steak, my mother's xmas dinner, long island ice teas,champagne, coffee. More chocolate. I also enjoy anthropomorphic food such as jelly babies or Pom bears, but only because I enjoy taunting them before I eat them.
What I'm looking for is a decent, funny (can't resist a naughty sense of humour), hard-working guy who is comfortable in his own skin. Open-minded but not too deviant and above all, someone who does not need to be mothered or psychoanalysed.
