I'm not a fan of boxes like these, but unfortunately I can't think of a joke about that for here which I haven't already seen on other profiles. Oh well, fourth-wall-breaking-low-key-meta-humour it is! (You know, the kind that's so low-key/meta it isn't actually funny. That's why you're not laughing now. I'm sorry.)
I used to do a lot of dancing, hence the profile name. In particular, Lindy Hop - think 30s/40s swing-dancing. Unfortunately knee troubles stopped me doing that a while back, but that's abating somewhat so hopefully I'll be doing a bit more again this year!
At some point I'm going to actually follow through on one of the ideas I have for writing a book or making a game. Or at the very least coreographing a dance routine. Hasn't happened quite yet, though.
- walking the wrong way when I get out of a tube station.
- using bullet points to avoid constructing full sentences.
Or my use of self-deprecating humour to answer questions I'm struggling with.
Film-wise I have a fairly wide taste. My favourites though: not a strict list, but The Lion In Winter, LA Confidential, Once Upon a Time in The West, Stardust and North By Northwest are all up there. In slightly more recent films, Cloud Atlas blew me away in a way nothing else has done since.
I don't watch huge amounts of TV, but I'm a bit obsessed with Doctor Who. Don't worry, I can stop whenever I want.
I mostly listen to orchestral stuff - film scores especially. John Barry is my favourite composer, but since almost no-one I've ever met knows who he is, that's not much use as an answer to this question. But I also like assorted other things, like swing music, classical pieces (especially Russian Romantic composers), Muse and random 70s/80s concept pieces like Tubular Bells, The War of the Worlds and The Hunting of the Snark.
My favourite cuisine has to be Italian, with French very close. I have some slightly odd restrictions in my tastes, but I'll find something I'm interested in trying on most menus.
Friends - someone needs to be there to laugh at my jokes. Or else I'll have to start posting them to Twitter, and no-one wants that.
Humour - makes the world go round.
Music - What would the world be without music? Just a load of conversation and silence, that's what.
My glasses - I'm not blind per se, but they're pretty important.
Narratives - Some people claim they're what seperates us from the animal knigdom. Whether that's true or not, I love a good story.
Also please don't be shy about messaging me! As long as it's more than "Hi" I promise to respond, even if it's just to say "maybe two people with a 31% compatibility who live in different continents won't make the best match".
I don't send (m)any first messages on here- I've seen the amount of incoming women can have and I'm reluctant to add to that. But I'd love to hear from you...so take the first step!
