My self-summary
Sure of my own mind, and enjoy socialising just as much as relaxing at home. I am attracted by passion, intelligence and ambition, but good manners and a spot of chivalry will go down well with me. Selling my soul in the world of Advertising at present, but when I get to escape the office consuming food and drink (all sorts) is high up on the priority list, along with numerous gigs/festivals, and the odd decent film never goes amiss (both odd and decent are appreciated). Keeping fit is important to me - loving those natural endorphins...

I am feisty, intelligent, and warm-hearted, known to be spontaneous when the will (and money) so allows. Care to join...?

What I’m doing with my life
Recently changed the current state of play and have hurled myself to the other side of the world to experience an Aussie way of life... Since I now find myself in Melbourne, any tips/advice/mocking welcomed to help me settle in!
I’m really good at
Being literate (thankfully), speaking my mind, making people feel at ease but also keeping them on their toes, multi-tasking and procrastinating, exuding an air of confidence when I am feeling anything but, and drinking Bloody Marys.

Lots I'm not good at also, but it doesn't ask me that.
The first things people usually notice about me
Quite possibly that I have nicked your pint for a cheeky sip on the dance floor. And then given it back. Not bad manners, honestly.

Books: Ian McEwan as an author in general is great, particularly 'The Cement Graden' and 'Enduring Love'.

Food: A wide variety, depending on mood and time-scale of eating. From sushi to pizza, boiled egg and soldiers to a hunk of meat. I have a lot of time for brunch.

Music: wide-ranging but extremely important to me. Can't be bothered to list all sorts of genres or particular favourites - just ask. If you don't enjoy switching on 6Music, we are probably not going to get along.
Six things I could never do without
Cheese, iPhone, friendship, temptation, my diary (organisation-wise) and honesty.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-How successful/unsuccessful I am in relation to my age and expectations people may have of said age
-What next?
-Restaurants I'd like to dine at
-Pleasure and pain
-Places I'd like to visit around the globe
-Whether drinking really is worth the inevitable 2-day hangover
-Why so many people on here have photos with them on mountain tops, alongside cats, or any other animal for that matter
On a typical Friday night I am
Resting in preparation for a heavy Saturday night. If not, then having a couple of drinks with mates or colleagues and/or going out for dinner. The usual, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a sucker for a Scot... And Kiwis, seemingly...
You should message me if
a) you can use correct grammar and punctuation in your sentences, b) you enjoy asking and being asked questions, c) you know how to keep time, I'm afraid lateness is no good, and, d) you aren't averse to taking control/being in charge/making plans. I may be dominant in some ways, but it gets boring all the time - so go on, challenge me...
