I have a lot of time and loyalty for those who can give me the same. I hold these people in high regard and will always make an effort to involve them in my life.
I like to think of myself as a humourous, sometimes witty guy, and even if you won't laugh at my jokes, I'm laughing on the inside. It's important to see the lighter side of life, just as it is also important to remain grounded and keep things in perspective.
Activities I enjoy include travel, music, cinema, camping, anime, video games (in moderation) and "non-gym" healthy activities such as kayaking, paddleboarding, indoor rock climbing, hiking, and "mud runs". I dabble a bit in cosplay too :P
I like to be active socially but not really in terms of the pub/club party scene - that is ok on occasion but not as a lifestyle. I like to mix it up and add a lot of variety to the things I do. So you could find me going bowling (terrible at it), hosting firetwirling parties, laser skirmish, going to music festivals and live performances, and anything else that takes my fancy. My life is about opportunity and variety.

I don't watch a lot of TV but do enjoy TV shows on DVD (on my own schedule), and I do visit the cinema often.
Planning a house sitting working holiday in New Zealand at some stage :D
I can do origami :P
I seem to have a knack for helping people help themselves, which has caused me to sometimes ponder taking up psychology and becoming a life coach.
Ironically for me, sometimes the first thing people notice about me when I open my mouth is my English accent. Which I dont have. I was born in Australia. Some Aussies even think I'm Canadian. Wot?

Video Games: Borderlands, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War, Bayonetta, Fable, Left 4 Dead.
Not necessarily all in that order ;)
I also ponder what to do if there was a zombie outbreak. Help me plan.
I've already drafted a plan for The Day After Tomorrow.
I like cardboard boxes.
I take a cushion to the cinema.
I'm not as vanilla as I may seem.
I think I need help making my profile shorter.
What? You were hoping for something more juicy? I'm an open minded open book but that doesn't mean I'll put everything on public display ;)
I tend to take a holistic approach I take to a person. I like people to be open, friendly, humourous, light hearted yet able to have a deep & meaningful conversation as well.
I am a nice guy :D Usually.
Look out! ZOMBIE!
