Hedonistic, practical, never bored with life, but easily bored. Catholic range of interests and tastes, and up for new things. I do not own slippers, a fast car, and I am not an embarrassment in company. Having said that a group of friends did an autism test, and yours truly was rather borderline. This proves nothing, but could explain my dislike of crowds (such as festivals and the like), and why I have at times felt I don't quite fit in the usual categories. Not a weirdo, just a bit out of the ordinary would sum it up ( and how certainly friends will describe me!).
Update Feb 2013- just done the What dog are you Test, and yes, it told me what I already knew. That the ONLY dog I should share my life with would have to be a Collie. I 'borrowed' one in autumn half term, and we got on famously, but that was AFTER we'd had a little chat about who should go out of the front door first- it was decided it should be me after a bit of exuberance on Tess' part caused us to both end up in a heap just outside.
After some disasterous efforts earlier in my life, I can now sus folks out generally pretty accurately ( and see them for what they are, rather than how it might outwardly appear).
Non-monogamy and can love and cherish intimacy with my lovely partners
Following recipes- the results are usually praised, but I'd never describe myself as any sort of proper cook.
Sex- well I'm usually invited back, so something must be right.
Seeing comedy or absudity in many every day situations.
Downloading stuff, then not listening to it
Getting away from it all, more wild camping, more Stilton, and a G&T in the sun
Recently got back into Melvyn Bragg and 'In our Time', R4. What an amazing array of subjects, so much one can learn. Utterly intriguing.
tea (leaves of course)
cyclamen in flower on my windowsill to see me through the winter
watching clouds, especially in a decent thunderstorm
Religion- who on earth thought that a clever idea ? Why people get blinkered by 'their' religion. How can you link commonsense stuff like contraception or abortion, to what some deity apparently wants? How it isn't sinful for a religion to make people feel guilty because they have 'sinned'. Why does religion appear to breed fanaticism- the 'Religious Right', Jihadism, Abortion Clinic atrocities, and so on. And, if there is one God, how does dealing in angels, lambs, cherubs and so on apply to the poor sods a few parsecs away (let alone those further afield!). Come one mankind, get real. Here endeth the first lesson (sorry, rant!).
Oh, and why do I have this peculiar profile name? Because I think they are misunderstood, and this species is extinct !
Otherwise you'll have to find out
And if you're looking for a friend with benefits (which isn't an option in the 'I'm looking for' above), then I'd like to hear from you. The benefits would be intellectual stimulation at first, and we can discuss other stimulating subjects if that appears appropriate to each of us.
You're a younger woman who appreciates, or thinks she might like, a sensible mature man.
You're not normal, because I'm not either. And you've never quite 'fitted in'- message me!
