My self-summary
I just moved to St Albans recently to live with my girlfriend. It's a nice place, I just don't really know anyone round here so looking to maybe make some new friends so that I have a reason to get out the house a bit and have someone to go with to the cinema or whatever as I don't like doing things like that on my own.

I'm fairly easy going most of the time, though kind of quiet around people, and sometimes I worry too much. But I'm more relaxed and fun when I get to know people.
I am funny at times, though I have quite a dry sense of humour so it is not always obvious when I'm joking. Life is too short to be serious all the time.
I probably spent too much time on my PC, either on the Internet or playing computer games, and I'm a bit of a nerd. Though that could be a good thing if you have any computer problems that need fixing.

I am shy, intellectual, and funny
What I’m doing with my life
Not much, to be honest. Though I'm trying to change that, and joining here is one of the steps.
I’m really good at

Listening. I'm not really sure why all the time, but people seem to like telling me things. I do my best to be kind and compassionate and I guess this puts people at ease when they are around me, so means they can relax and get things off their chest. I've been told I'm too sensitive as well by some people, and I suppose that helps too in making people feel comfortable.

Cooking. More of an enthusiastic amateur, but did used to work in a kitchen when I was younger and have a few dishes I could impress with.

Singing badly. I'm great at it, and can even break out a falsetto that makes dogs cry when the song requires it.

Self depreciating humour. I like being sarcastic and witty, but at the same time I'm usually too soft to say bad things about other people, so tend to end up making jokes about myself instead.
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess the first thing would be that I am kind of shy. I sometimes get a bit anxious around people when I first meet them and so I don't say much. Though I am a lot more chatty when I am relaxed.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm a bit of a sci-fi geek, so most of my favourite books and movies are sci-fi ones. Though I like most type of films really, and enjoy watching anything as long as it's not too mushy.

I enjoy listening to just about anything musical, from classical through to dubstep, though my favourite would have to be garage rock, like The Sonics, The Clash or The White Stripes.

I love food, probably too much, and I enjoy cooking to. Pasta is my favourite thing to eat. Also cheese, I love cheese, the smellier the better.
Six things I could never do without
In order of addiction;
My PC.
My Phone.
The Internet.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I am often pondering and pontificating on various philosophical conundrums, such as;
Why do people yawn?
What is happening to all the bees?
If I could only pick one type of cheese to eat for the rest of my life, which one would I choose?
Do fish ever get thirsty?
On a typical Friday night I am
At home. I'm not really the going out type. I prefer the peace and quiet. If I do go out I prefer to do it during the week when it is not so busy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There are certain films that still make me cry when I watch them.
You should message me if
You want to chat, or is that too obvious for me to say? So how about if you are nice and you think I might like to hear from you.
Or if you are just bored and want someone to share cheese based puns with.
Or if you have ever wondered why the sky is blue.
Or if the last time someone asked you to pick a number between one and ten you blurted out "carrot!" instead.
Or even if you just clicked on my profile by accident because your cat just tried to jump on your lap for a cuddle and landed on your laptop instead, then feel free to sent me a message.

You should not message me if:
You are just looking to hook up. I've already got a girlfriend so not going to be interested in sleeping with anyone else.
The two of us
