My self-summary
Hey, I'm Steve, an active and friendly 36 year old living in West Yorkshire and not very good at writing descriptions of myself and things like this...not good at all! I enjoy most activities, as long as they're fun and something that can make me think and use my mind, as I'm not a fan of dull and boring activities...although I do enjoy a night in front of the TV on occasion, with good wine, good food and good company. At the moment it's just me and my cat Bumble, but I'm sure he'd love to get to know other people (when he's not busy killing his toy mousey or climbing up the curtains!). And now a second cat, Sally, who Bumble is a bit scared of :(

I should point out that I'm a bit of a geek, I like to play board games but not the traditional snakes and ladders, Monopoly-type board games - I'm particularly a big fan of the German-style worker placement games. So I understand I'm probably not everyone's cup of tea...

I suppose what I'm looking for in a woman is someone who likes to laugh and joke, isn't too serious and also someone who places intelligence and humour above looks...I mean I know looks are important, but to me they have to be part of a complete package, and getting to know someone I can talk to for hours on end without getting bored is a bigger priority than someone who looks great but doesn't have much in common with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Executive for a large airline, freelance photographer and local wit and raconteur - life is nearly full, now just looking for someone to share it all with!
I’m really good at
annoying people with crap jokes...
The first things people usually notice about me
For some reason I get a lot of people telling me I look like James Dean Bradfield from the Manic Street Preachers. Which is one of my favourite bands, coincidentally...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I don't read enough books really, but I do like to read biographies - Richard Hammond's story of his crash and recovery still makes me well up from reading it, because it is clear just how much his wife and friends love him.

Music-wise, I love anything rock/indie as long as it's not too geared towards charty stuff - the best stuff is usually off the radar of the scene kids, and that's the way it should stay! Currently my favourite album that is on repeat is Lacuna Coil's Dark Adrenaline - if I had to, I'd probably say Cristina Scabbia is my ultimate ideal woman ^_^

I don't get time to watch much telly, but couldn't live without my Netflix account - stuff like 24, Arrested Development, Coupling and the many obscure films hidden away in its oddly-titled categories. I also love Doctor Who, Star Trek and Wars, Firefly, and many other sci-fi shows - anyone who remembers and loves Seaquest DSV and Sliders should come and watch them with me!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Who the devil would be insane enough to spend even a few hours with me *chuckle*

Whether the cat's plotting to kill me or not...

Which part of the country is the best bet to move to.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either relaxing after work or wandering round a local RSPB reserve looking for rare birdies. Life is good!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Whilst I'm generally quite confident, I'm actually really shy when it comes to knowing what to say when introducing myself to women...haven't got the foggiest!
You should message me if
you're looking for a down-to-earth typical Northern bloke - no mystery, no games, you get what you see. Or if you're looking for someone to share sci-fi and general geekery with!
The two of us
