My self-summary
Okay, I'm pretty bad at this, but here we go.
I'm Ash. I'm definitely something of a geek/nerd. I'm really into old-fashioned romance. I love to learn and try new things, I'm generally pretty curious. I love to be creative, dreaming up new things and ideas. I'm also really into reading and gaming, getting really absorbed into fiction is awesome.
I can be quite shy and awkward and am somewhat of an introvert, but that can be pretty up and down. I'm also a little bit broken right now, but I'm working on it. I suffer from depression and anxiety, which comes and goes, but leaves me with pretty low self esteem. I do also have some pretty bad intimacy related anxiety, which I do find embarrassing and humiliating, but I've been encouraged to be more open about it. I know that wasn't the most positive paragraph, but I like to be honest and I hope that doesn't put anyone off :) I think I'm a kind and genuine person and I'd like a chance to show someone how much love i have!
Wow, that was cheesy :P
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently working as an assistant in an accounts department and should be starting to take accountancy qualifications soon. I'm also working through a long list of books and games which I'm unlikely to ever get to the bottom of, whilst trying to do some painting and design in when I get a chance. I've recently started trying to get bit more active and healthy, so I go to martial arts lessons twice a week and am starting yoga and circuits soon.
I’m really good at
I'm pretty good at remembering useless facts and am pretty determined when I decide on something.
I can think up projects which I have no hope in hell of accomplishing, is that a skill?
Apparently I'm pretty polite to :)

You should message me if
You think we'd have loads to talk about about. You'd like to get coffee/tea/ a pint. You'd like to go to a museum or art gallery. Have a thing for aquariums or zoos. Have some experience of mental health. I really appreciate people with patients, an open mind and no judgement. It would be amazing to go on a through dates and maybe meet someone who wants see more of each other. I need someone who is willing to take things slowly and let things develop naturally without pressure. Being able to trust someone is essential.
