My self-summary
Strong, implausibly handsome man - albeit a bit frayed around the edges - seeks unfathomably attractive and intelligent woman for companionship, leading to possible romance and whatever follows. Anyway, back to the real world…

I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to be when I grow up. I've spent my life making music and travelling (with numerous, mostly uninteresting jobs in between), and have no desire to change. I'm currently working full-time with people suffering from illicit drug and/or alcohol misuse (we all deserve a second chance), and am really enjoying it, but I primarily want to continue to live a creative life I can look back on with pride. I don't really care about money or shiny, glittery possessions, which is just as well as I've never had any; so if you're a superficial person, looking for a wealthy man, move right along…

My passions include writing and recording songs, left-wing politics and social issues, reading, going to gigs, travelling to foreign cities, watching boxing, lounging around the flat in an attempt to look fascinating, and bumming around on the internet. Originally, I'm from London but used to live in America and now reside in Peterborough (though I'm hoping for eventual parole). I'm honest, compassionate and passionate, don't mess women around, and don't tolerate being messed around. Seriously, I'm one of life's good guys, so I'm you like what you've read and seen, send me a message. xx
What I’m doing with my life
Currently work with recovering drug addicts - very rewarding work that can also be emotionally draining. Apart from that, it's music, music, music…
I’m really good at
Listening, conversation, giving advice (unless it's to myself), writing songs (especially lyrics), and wandering around unknown cities alone and exploring them, even if I don't speak the language.
The first things people usually notice about me
No idea. I've been told I have nice eyes, but it's not for me to say.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: 70s Punk and 50s Rock 'n' Roll - amongst others.

Movies: Lawrence of Arabia, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Taxi Driver, The Wicker Man, Heathers, Before Sunrise, Barry Lyndon, One Hour Photo, My Own Private Idaho, A Clockwork Orange...

Books: Biographies, diaries, history, political (i.e. non-fiction)

Shows: At the moment, I'm totally engrossed in Breaking Bad.

Food: Vegetarian.
Six things I could never do without
My iMac, my guitar, good books, good music, my passport, my health.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The world and just about everything in it, from the trivial to the deadly serious. I'm a sucker for a political or philosophical debate, but am not averse to talking silly rubbish either.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, though long weekends in London are an occasional must.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not the perfect man, but the virtues out-weigh the bad points.
You should message me if hated Margaret Thatcher, know the difference between "your" and "you're", find Ed Sheeran and Coldplay unlistenable, and think corporations should pay their damn taxes.
The two of us
