My self-summary
Oh god... This is kind of the 'what I did on my holidays' essay of the dating world, right? Where I bang on about how wonderful I am and how I'm looking for my soul mate?... Hey, I guess I'm alright and some company would be grand ;)
Well really, without self-trumpeting, I think I'm a smart and funny person. People seek out my company for the spark I bring...
I am extremely tactile, I display my affection and appreciation through touch.
I am constantly in awe of the beauty of nature and its detail, will bump into things whilst studying a particularly nice cloud.
I am old enough to know what's best for me, and do not suffer fools lightly.
Have taken up stand up comedy as a hobby, I have a monthly gig at my local.
I am seeking someone who misses the feeling of falling asleep holding hands, and excited about getting belly butterflies at that first lovely kiss.
Wow, that was a lot cheesier than intended....
I'm a traveller, with chronic wanderlust... 32 countries and counting...Not happy unless I explore a new country every year or so...
Social Worker at a local high school.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out my place in it, like everyone...
Have done the seachange thing, from the southern ocean to the pacific.
Settling into life in NSW. Trying to figure out why reverse angle parking is necessary....
Also trying to put things in motion to live my dreams. Will beat the world one day, just watch me! You could join me if you like...
I’m really good at
Listening. Making others laugh. Photography. Essays. Baking. Hugging. Playing nice with others. Friendships. Singing. Cryptic crosswords. Dancing like an idiot to brit pop. Floating on my back in water. Strolling the streets of new cities. Procrastination. Sunday lie-ins. Mentioning the elephant in the corner. Cooking. Remembering obscure lines from films. Turning a quiet evening into an all night bender. Seeing the beauty in the mundane.
The first things people usually notice about me
The top of my head (yeah, kinda short), my eyes, my willingness to smile, that I'm not a 'girly' girl, my wit, my prosthetic leg (joke)..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh where do I start?? Books.. Terry Pratchett. Lee Childs for aeroplanes. Water for Elephants. The Book Thief. Iian Banks. Ian McEwan. Jasper Fforde. Cormac McCarthy. Films.. a lot of French stuff, Amelie, A long engagement, Welcome to the sticks. Will Ferrell for laughs. TV... HBO shows. The Wire, Deadwood, Dexter, Six Feet Under a few faves. Also brit comedy, love League of Gentleman. The Walking Dead for cheesy escapism. Music.. currently loving bluegrass, but I'll listen to anything. The Waifs, The Swell Season, The Brothers Grim and the Blue Murders, David Gray. Food.. anything, love to cook elaborate feasts for loved ones. Vietnamese a favourite.
Six things I could never do without
The ocean nearby.
Good company.
A loyal dog.
Oxygen supply to my brain.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Would that make a good photo? Why am I the only person who finds that funny? Did he just use a TRIPLE negative in that sentence? Is cake for breakfast okay?Is it warm enough to swim today? Christ, where are my pants?
On a typical Friday night I am
Collapsing after a monster week. Or going to see a live gig, reading, watching something on tv/dvd, hanging with pals etc etc
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a phobia of umbrellas. You'll figure the rest out over time..
You should message me if
You feel like it. Who am I to say what you should or shouldn't do? Oh ok then.. because I'm fun. And I'll pay you ;)
The two of us
