My self-summary
I'm optimistic, huggy(everyone gets a hug), bored and looking for fun and interesting conversations, i have many and varied interest's including Karate, Wargames, LARP(ask me if you don't know what this is) and Scouts.
I can get bogged down in the day to day things but i'm always ready get stuck in too something new and different if i think its worth it. I'm active, but not as fit as i should be, despite excercising more than i used too (mostly LARP).
I'm living in a shared flat with my girlfriend of 5 years.
I'm also a self confessed Sci-fi geek!

I am Huggy, eccentric, and optimistic.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a factory in Salts Mill in Saltaire, getting the train in every day.
I play in several LARP games on a sunday afternoon/evening and several weekends a year, i help out at a Scout troop in Roundhay on a Monday night.
I used to do Karate, but stopped because of an injury, now i'm wishing i had the time to start again, but other interests have filled the space.
I sometimes play games at Bradford Games club on a friday evening.
I’m really good at
I'm really good at not being cynical, hugging people and listening, though i will ask questions.
I hold to the belief, as stated by Terry Pratchett, that a lot of people don't have conversations, they just spend the time while other people are talking thinking what they are going to say next, I tend to listen to whats being said, meaning people sometimes think i'm a bit slow, but its just me mentally digesting the conversation.
I hug people alot, everyone gets a hug, people who like hugs get more than others, but everyone gets at least one! (unless they really have personal space issues or just hate me, in which case i respect that)
Most of my friends would consider me innocent/naive, but i'm really not, i just try to suppress my cynisism and be optimistic, this does not mean i'm unrealistic! I just hope for the best case!
The first things people usually notice about me
The first thing people usually notice is my smile, i'm usually smiling, even when depressed, the second thing is the hug, i try to give warnings before hugging new people, scaring people is not something i want to do these days! ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Terry Pratchett's Diskworld novels, the Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind, and the "Song of Ice and Fire" series by George R R Martin. I tend to go for series's with long running plots! I like a good plot!
My favourite movie of probably Fifth Element, but i like alot of other sci-fi movies such as the Back to Future series, and i also like fantasy like Lord of the Rings or Pans Labyrinth or Stardust.
My Music tastes are a bit odd, for preference i listen to classic and 80s Rock and cheese, but i will listen to almost anything thought i try and avoid Hiphop and R'n'B. I greatly enjoy going to The Wendyhouse, which is a club night at stylus which is all Goth/Alternative/80's cheese/Rock!
Six things I could never do without
The Internet! I like keeping up with news and current affairs and the internet is best for this!
Books, when all else fails a good book is great!
Chocolate, because its great to share!
Friends, because its good too talk.
Mobile, so can easily keep in contact with my friends
Facebook, because its easy to use!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Stuff! Things i have done, things i should have done, things i am going to try and do!
I also think alot about spaceships!! I dunno why, i just do!
On a typical Friday night I am
On a friday night i am usually home, chatting to friends on the internet or playing games, my usual going out night is saturday night!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I listen too Radio 4 in the mornings to wake me up!
You should message me if
I'd like to chat too people who aren't going to be scared off or dissmisive of my hobbies!
Too many times people meet me but then reject because i'm too much of a geek!
The two of us
