My self-summary
I'm a (perhaps overly-) sarcastic redhead with a temper to match my hair. I like films and reading, particularly sci-fi. If it has aliens, vampires, werewolves, or guns, I'll watch it. I have six tattoos, which often surprises people. Maybe I just don't seem like the type...

I'm bisexual; not confused, indecisive, slutty, or polyamorous. No, I don't want to have a threesome with you and your wife/husband/partner. Please don't even bother sending me a message asking.

I enjoy a night in on the couch with alcohol and friends over a night out clubbing; I'm inherently lazy though I try to be less so. I tend to flail about things, and I have the attention span of a particularly dim spaniel.

I usually split the bill for dinner, but I like a date to offer to pay.

I've been a little unlucky in love, so I can be a bit standoffish.

I like my space; it doesn't mean I don't enjoy talking to someone, but I need to decompress from the outside world every so often.

I want someone who will challenge me, who'll make me think, who won't just roll over and let me walk all over them. In the words of Clementine: I'm just a fucked-up girl looking for my own peace of mind; don't assign me yours.
What I’m doing with my life
Settling in as a lodger in Leith; loving my job that lets me wear swing dresses; studying with the OU
I’m really good at
writing, wasting hours of my life on the internet, designing and stencilling tshirts, singing along to Buffy's musical episode with my insane (and utterly evil) ex-flatmate, procrastinating with knitting.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my height, my boobs ;), my geekiness. I spent years hiding it, and it took me until Uni to realise that I didn't give a flying f**k what people thought. Now I will quite happily talk about Harry Potter to anyone who will listen.

I am capable of 'normal' conversation too, mind you. ;)

...I have pretty diverse taste. I listen to a bit of everything, other than dance and hiphop.
The six things I could never do without
my computer, my knitting stuff, my books, my bed, annnd...hm. tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
See above re: world domination.

I also, occasionally, think about fluffy kittens. And gay porn.
On a typical Friday night I am
Going to the cinema with friends, or taking turns cooking dinner and drinking wine with same. I'd far rather entertain/go round to a friend's house or a pub than go out to a club - conversation gets me going, not loud music and watered-down drinks.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I write in online RPGs, and as a result, have *thinks* about 14 characters living in my head. Not in a call-the-men-in-white-coats kind of way, but yes. It sometimes gets a little crowded. And yes, I write about them having relationships. This sometimes means sex. No, that does not mean I'm having cybersex with the other writer. That would be wierd.
You should message me if
You're open-minded, a little bit geeky, sarcastic, laid-back, and patient.

And here's a tip, guys: saying 'hi' and nothing else? Is not going to get you a reply. Because there's absolutely no effort involved in that at all. You want to get someone's attention? Show them you're interested in THEM. Not just firing off twenty messages saying 'hi' to whoever catches your eye.
