My self-summary
I'm Dave. I'm sensitive, caring and friendly, but a bit shy at first. I'm sometimes outspoken and I have strong opinions. I enjoy a good debate, especially about politics. As long as you don't have to resort to smears and slurs to respond to my points, that is. I'm affectionate, generous and supportive, if a little direct in my advice.

I enjoy writing, trips to the theatre or cinema, museums and art galleries, reading, wargames and spending time with friends. Interests include history, especially military history and the middle ages, the dark ages and the classical period. I love fantasy, sci-fi, historical fiction and thriller novels and films. My pet hate is inaccurate historical fiction. Drives me up the wall. It's not hard to get it right and nothing is served by getting it wrong.

I love cooking, I'm learning to cook new dishes all the time.

I am kind, caring, and sensitive
What I’m doing with my life
Working as a commis chef and applying to the church for stipendary ministry. Yes, you read that right.
I’m really good at
Writing stories and spouting random facts. I'm also fairly handy with a pencil, but badly out of practice. Someone special told me I'm good at cuddles and, er, other things. I make no boasts about the accuracy of that statement, apart from the bit about cuddles.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, apparently. Certainly not my beard, I had to remind someone I have one not so long ago.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The Lord of the Rings, Jurrasic Park, A Song of Ice and Fire, The Emperor series, The Sharpe series, many more.

Films: Star Wars trilogy, Jurassic Park, Species, Kingdom of Heaven, The Last Samurai, The Sharpe Series, many more.

Music: Meat Loaf, Alice Cooper, Thunder, Twisted Sister, Faith Hill, Bon Jovi, The Band of HM Royal Marines, Jeff Waynes, many more.
Six things I could never do without
My friends, this damned PC (I love it and hate it at the same time), my sword collection (display only of course), books, my writing and intelligent conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My stories. Always getting stuck... and my new girlfriend!
On a typical Friday night I am
On the PC, watching telly or (most likely) at work. Being a chef is great but the hours are a pain sometimes.
You should message me if
You want cooking tips, or Heaven forbid, you like what you read...
The two of us
