My self-summary
Do not be fooled by the bookish, conservative appearance, (and many are) - I'm an adventurer, a fish out of water, a lost soul, somewhat of an anarchist, a contrarian, and a bucker or trends and expectations. I thrive in the face of opposition, and if you tell me I can't do something, I'll surprise you. Don't try to put me in a box (although a lot of people do that as well) - I'll bust out of it very quickly.

Cats are nice, too!

Not really sure what I'm after here. I guess everyone's always after The One and I'm no exception - much though it's a bit of a flawed concept - but people to have a beer and shoot the breeze with are cool, too.

Ich spreche auch ein bisschen Deutsch aber ich bin schuchtern damit! Es ist interessant, wie manchmal unterschiedliche Persönlichkeitsmerkmale in Fremdsprachen stärker sind (hope that's right, maybe you can correct it for me).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a full-time classical singer. I divide my time between solo oratorio/early music concerts and professional choral work. Yes, I am good at it. I have a website if you're interested. You should ask me why I don't like opera.
I’m really good at
Apart from the above, I tie a freakin' killer half-Windsor tie-knot. I make a great gin martini when called upon. Making friends with animals at 50 paces, particularly cats. Getting bored in rehearsals in random places and "liking" all the locals just to see what happens.
The first things people usually notice about me
My gingervitis.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll keep this short, as no-one bothers reading this section, really. I know I certainly don't.

Cricket (the sport). Film in general, and particularly intelligent, psychological thrillers. TV - GoT, Breaking Bad, Fargo, Halt And Catch Fire, Mr Robot. Books - anything by Nick Earls, Tanith Lee or Diana Wynne-Jones (RIP). Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes which genuinely changed my life and caused me to lose ten kilos (and I wasn't that big to start with). Good German beer. I would probably sell my soul for a never-ending supply of Lady Grey tea (no, I do not mean Earl Grey, or Pricess Grey either). That'll do.
The six things I could never do without
My iPad, the internet, cricinfo.com, women, wine and song.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Women. Love. Sex. My career. Money - wish I didn't, but it's true. Cricket. Whether or not the pretty girl on the train will think I'm a creep if I say hello.

Also: why do so many people on here say "if you're not an asshole" in the "you should message me if" section? Does anyone actually go around thinking that they're an asshole? "Hi there, I'm a massive dickhead, couldn't help noticing that we like the same movies....."
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't really do typical Friday nights. Depending on the time of year I suppose there's a decent chance I'll be singing somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for fellow gingers. And German girls - genuinely. I guess I came to the right place for that.
You should message me if
You know a good karaoke bar with an appropriately cheesy playlist.

You'd like to know more.
