I'm a keen runner...well, "keen" perhaps isn't the right word, but I go running and completed the London Marathon last year which was horrendously hard...but somehow totally enjoyable once the pain subsided. Am glad I'm just spectating this year! I've just bought a bike ready for a cycle from Bristol to London later in the year - what can I say, I like a challenge.
I'm still discovering all the exciting things to do around London so I am up for suggestions (within reason!). My favourite weather is the wind and I'm also my Granny's favourite and that woman has good taste!
I'm looking for someone who is driven, funny, sensible, intelligent and a whole load of other adjectives that would make a rom-com screenwriter proud. Someone to laugh with, to go on impromptu adventures with, to suggest new places to visit and someone who isn't afraid of spiders (it's a cliché but surely this is what this section is all about!)
I'm trying to take advantage of the city I live in but there's so much to do! I've almost been here three years - time flies - but am still yet to visit a Museum Late, go to the Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town or picnic at Ally Pally. However, don't fret, I am sufficiently London'd enough to know where to stand on my underground platform to get the double door, get massively frustrated by wheely suitcases and have grown an unnatural hate for golf umbrellas.
Offering (fairly) good advice
Recognising bit-part actors in film/tv and knowing what other films they've been in
Remembering pointless parts of conversations
Movies - my favourite is, and don't judge me, True Lies - seriously, stop judging me, it's awesome! Other more credible/equally uncredible films: Life is Beautiful, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Geisha, Anchorman, Mr and Mrs Smith, I am Legend, Moulin Rouge, Life of Pi, Independence Day, Walk the Line etc. Plus, there's always a place for Disney.
TV shows - I've (finally) got myself into A Game of Thrones and am loving it, though am yet to watch the last series, so no spoilers! I've also been known to procrastinate whilst watching Arrested Development, Brooklyn Nine Nine, Breaking Bad, New Girl, House, Modern Family, Homeland not forgetting Diagnosis Murder and the New Adventures of Lois and Clark! (see previous comment about not judging).
Music - my musical tastes are diverse and definitely not 'cool'. As long as I can sing along or dance to it, my ears will be happy. As a general rule I'll know what songs I like as opposed to what artist I like but as long as it's music and not noise, anything goes.
Food - Mexican is probably the favourite but Italian would be the staple. Dessert is the best part of eating out and I'm always torn between trying somewhere new as opposed to trying something tried and tested.
You're a guy who doesn't take himself too seriously and has a good sense of humour (puns and sarcasm more than welcome).
You can use full stops, capital letters and don't take copious pictures of yourself in the mirror.
And if you're here because I've looked at your profile and you think we might get on, then press that 'like' button - could be the feeling's mutual...
