My self-summary
Good day, My name is Daryn,

I have more sides than a dodecahedron :)

I'm not great at selling myself, but I'll have a go. The things I hope to find in others are qualities that I hope I have myself, like... compassion, understanding, sensitivity, being comfortable in my own skin, not always taking myself or life too seriously, the ability to have fun, energy, drive, passion and kindness. I'm a realist but also a romantic at heart and I'm hoping for my happy ending one day, which probably won't be quite the way I will ever have imagined it, but then, where is the fun in that!.
I like to be out with people, but because I'm an only child I need alone time as well, but I am very happy in my own skin and with my life in general.
I tend to like the darker things in life and can find mainstream culture rather depressing at times, I like life to be a bit more mixed up and random. I like interesting people and conversations...but interesting doesn't always have to mean sensible :)
I value creativity and individuality, and although I can be quite serious, introspective and thoughtful at times, I still embrace my inner child and general silliness. I want to meet somebody similar; somebody I can have an in-depth conversation with...followed by a pillow fight.
I am a warm, open person and an active listener. Hugs make the world go round. I love my friends and I draw strength from my all my relationships. As much as I like going out and dancing I also like to curl up on the sofa with my partner close to me watching TV. These days I have come to appreciate the benefit of experience and yet feel I'm still finding my way round everything. I know myself very well and yet am learning more and more all the time. I Guess I'm paradoxical by nature. I'm shy and confident. Light hearted and serious. Precise and muddled.

I love old buildings, cemeteries and landscapes, Watching wildlife, in particular the Red Kites as they are such beautiful birds of prey and are such a joy to watch on a summers day, reading, going to museums, exploring random little areas of cities and people watching. Warm weather is x10 better than cold weather. I'm much happier in Summer when the days are longer, as there are many things to enjoy on those long hot summer evenings.

Like everyone I have good points and bad points and there are too many for me to write down here. So get in touch and find out for yourself!

I am independent, eccentric, and addictive :)
What I’m doing with my life
Currently working in white goods recycling but always looking to upgrade at some point when fate decides that it is time for me.
Working on a little bit of 3d design and graphics work in my spare time and poking about the internet and books on ancient and pre history when the mood takes me.
I’m really good at
I find it difficult to say what I'm *really* good at; self-promotion was never part of my upbringing!

I used to be good at horse riding, but haven't done that in many years, but would like to again someday, hehe.

Making tea,
Cooking (Sometimes),

.. being a bit too sarcastic,

Oh, and kissing, I'm really good at kissing... :P

Of course there are other things I'm good at, but you have to get to know me to find out about them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am quite shy and quiet to start with but in time will warm up and can be quite warm and affectionate.
I have had mention about my eyes as well, but you tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music means a lot to me, few things compare to finding a song that stirs something deep inside or awakens some forgotten longing.My favourite genre would have to be industrial, there's so much variety in there, but I also have a naughty indulgence in good catchy pop. I listen to quite a wide range of music and will give most things a listen at least once. I'm sort of 'meh' about a lot of current music, but occasionally something jumps out and impresses me. Some of the bands I like include: The Offspring, Cold, Bowling for Soup, HIM, Spineshank, Korn, Manic Street Preachers, Placebo, Nine Inch Nails, Fear Factory, Type O Negative, Panic Lift, Icon of Coil, Marilyn Manson, Psyclon Nine, Covenant, Neuroticfish, VNV Nation, Code 64, Blutengel, Evanescence, Zeromancer, Pain, Combichrist, London After Midnight, Faderhead, Nine Inch Nails, Orgy, Sister of Mercy, Linkin Park, Lostprophets, 30 seconds to Mars, Foo Fighters, Paramore, Avril Lavigne, Sum41, Iron Maiden, The Offspring, Muse, Nickleback, No Doubt, Apocalyptica, Radiohead, Disturbed, Seether, Nirvana, Placebo, Guns & Roses, Bad Religion, Green Day, Blink-182, System Of A Down, A.F.I., The Faint, Rammstein, Benny Benassi, Prodigy, Eminem, Bloodhound Gang, Enigma, Killers, Sisters of Mercy, and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I would rather be doing other than working.

All the adventures I can have in the future!

Stuff. Nonsense. Everything. Nothing.

Life, the universe and everything and the number 42.

What albums I should be buying.

Where I should go next.

Where the world is running off to.

All those practical things that one needs to think about in the event of the zombie apocalypse or some such events.

And what to do with my house when I get around to buying one.

Snuggling, I do think sometimes about having that tender snuggling moment .. its something that is absent in my life and as a tactile person it quite torturous to see others displaying various skin contact moments when I'm unable to.
Snuggling is one of those great comforts where by everything relaxes and its like a moment in time has stopped and I'm at peace.... yeah OK now i sound completely mad, lol.
On a typical Friday night I am
Nights out with friends locally or in London or Nottingham, or..
Clubbing in London or elsewhere, or..
Having a night in watching tv with nibbles, or..
Whatever else takes my fancy
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I read in the bath. Or would do if I still had a bath tub.

I like DIY and rug munching....
You should message me if
By some outside chance I take your interest :)
You have a sense of humour!
If something I've written has made you smile.
You want to learn more about me and meet up for a drink and see where things go.
The two of us
