My self-summary
I'm a thoughtful, sensitive, confident and motivated guy. I value being honest and straightforward with people, and I'm loyal. I'm looking to meet someone bright, beautiful, motivated and happy.
What I’m doing with my life
Used to do lots of acting and temping (!), but I retrained as a lawyer a few years ago, and I am a barrister. That means my hours can be a bit unusual, but the work is enjoyable, and I still get time to write and record music. This year I am getting a band together (again): I'm the singer.
I’m really good at
playing music by ear, empathising, spotting untruths, talking about feelings, singing, playing bass guitar
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm quite tall, I guess! Other than that, I suppose that I enjoy meeting people, and I can usually find something in common with whoever I am talking to.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I used to read a lot, but I do so less now I'm working. I like Jonathan Coe (What a Carve Up etc) and Iain Banks, and also I read biographies and autobiographies. Movies: I liked A single Man, the Last Temptation of Christ, Team America, Skyfall, Les Miserables, Mamma Mia. Shows: Evita, Mamma Mia, Les Miserables. etc, etc. Quite mainstream, in many ways. Musically, I like quite a lot of older stuff: Take That (only post-reunion, and I'm not such a big Robbie fan ...), Duran Duran, REM, Living Colour, Supertramp, Mark Ronson & the Business International, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud, ABBA... And I'm not too fussy about food, but I have tried to stop buying processed meat. I like Thai, and Indian, and Italian and Lebanese and French food ....
The six things I could never do without
1) Guitar 2) wikipedia 3) iPad 4) bicycle 5) bionsen 6) hard water!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Writing good lyrics / melodies, trying to do a better job at work, how to finish renovating my house!
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a drink with friends, or a take-away with my uni mates.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am bi. It's written into my DNA. But I am monogamous, loyal and honest!
You should message me if
You can challenge me, and entertain me, and I won't have to carry you along. I want to meet an equal, or ideally someone who can be one step ahead
