My self-summary
Update (24/05/2015): Please ignore any parts below about being single and looking for a relationship - I'm currently in a relationship and as such, am no longer looking. I could update the whole profile, or delete it, but that would take effort.

Right - I’m officially updating this page (21/03/2015).
I’m a 22 year old language graduate currently working in the financial sector. The previous writing on this page was rather long winded – but rather amazing if I do say so myself – however, it was a tad outdated. As such, I’m rewriting.

Brief but blunt: Ultimately I’m looking for a relationship. I’m not going to lie and say “I’m just looking for friends”… I’m always open to new friends, but I’m damn bored of being single. I’ve remained in the world of singledom for several years – you can either take that as a result of my being unattractive (you can see my pictures – beauty is subjective, judge my attractiveness as you will), or picky. In honesty, it’s a combination of the latter and the fact that I don’t tend to meet new men very often.

If the above hasn’t driven you from this page – well done, you may just be looking for the same thing. I’d list the qualities I’d like in a man, but the main one is the ability to maintain good conversation. Boring conversation is no fun… e.g. “How’s the weather?” (only fun if you’re saying it whilst you’re both standing in a storm – irony :D)…

Damn… this profile is turning out to be just as long as it was before! Woops. So in terms of personality, I’m quite a chilled person. I’m a fan of relaxing, reading, movies, and h’amazing tv shows (see favourites section). I’m also a fan of quiet nights out at pubs (what can I say? I’m a sloth at heart). I'd pretend I do a sport, but that would be dishonest... and laughably misleading. If you don't speak to non-athletic people, then you're welcome to move on :) I won't deceive you into believing I'm something that I'm not. However... I did walk a few miles a day... to get to and from uni... one can argue that is a sport, no? Walking... :D Joking. Though I do enjoy walking to destinations.

Finally – if you’re located a long way away and I’ve viewed your profile/sent you a message, feel flattered – you must look rather interesting. I’m a fan of conversation, so I could just be seeking amicable, intriguing conversation.

If any of the above sounds cocky… well, my bad. I’m actually a rather quiet person in real life… ish. Unless I know you well.

Hope you've enjoyed my not so brief but blunt profile :P
What I’m doing with my life
I studied languages at university. At the moment, I'm enjoying the world of work :D

I aspire to visit the US in the near future... when I have sufficient funds... and several other countries, but the US is the big one. I have a fascination with said country, (yes, so average - everyone outside the US is either fascinated by it, or thinks it's boring... I fall into the former)

Also - another aspiration is to learn another language. I have three now, including English, to a pretty good level - so now I wouldn't mind acquiring a fourth.
I’m really good at
Languages... I'm pretty good at learning them... is that really a skill? Hells yeahs :P I'm also a good listener... and I am okay at making people laugh, though half the time it's not deliberate. Woopsie.

I have "mad skills" at knowing random facts. Fact. I'm also clearly well versed in "gangsta" lingo. Don't worry... I'll keep it on the down low (joking... I find it hilarious saying things like "in a bizzle" and "fo' sure"... it conflicts completely with my appearance... and tends to amuse people).
The first things people usually notice about me
You're probably thinking this... yes, I'm psychic (joking - I tend to sign post my jokes with new people, in this case you... prevents misunderstanding)...

I look younger than 22.

Was I right? You were definitely thinking that. Unfortunately I frequently get "YOU'RE TWENTY TWO??!?!?!"... Last year, I went to visit a friend teaching in Madrid. She took me with her to one of her classes... one of the 12 year old school kids directly said "No, she must be 13, like us", when confronted with the age 21 (at the time). He would not back down. In that school, I'm now 8 years younger than I am.

Before this puts you off, I can assure you that the age "13" as an assumption was oddly low, even for me. I'm usually accused of being between 15 and 18.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favourite book? The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons... though I'm partial to fantasy books as a whole.

Favourite movie? Gladiator. Though the newer Batman's fall in close second. Then any superhero movies.

Favourite tv shows? So numerous...but Stargate (SG-1 & Atlantis), BSG, and Firefly are among my favourites. I'll admit to enjoying Grey's Anatomy too... so sue me, I'm a woman after all.

As for food... I eat relatively healthy... I try to have my five (fruit & veg) a day... BUT I LOVE chocolate... not American chocolate though, American chocolate sucks (no offence).
Six things I could never do without
Phone (has my music on it)
My laptop (it's how I communicate with family)
My bed
My family (though I could do without them occassionally :P)
My friends

Not sure what else...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Bed... I like being lazy.

Penguins... why not?

What I'll have for dinner/lunch.

Why the word "Thesaurus" (which is a reference book for those of you who don't know) has "saur" in it... like the word "Dinosaur"... how does a book relate to a dinosaur?
On a typical Friday night I am
...trying to claim a lazy night in and ultimately failing... or actually claiming a lazy night in and trying to find things to do :P
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an underachiever and procrastinator. I'm okay with admitting it, but I'm not proud of it... though to be fair to myself, my nan does keep telling me that I come from a long line of procrastinators. It seems to run down the female line... Aka... not my fault according to her :P (Yes, my nan is a legend... how many others can put their procrastination down to genes?)
You should message me if
You've got this far through, and if you feel like being brave and chatting.

If you're local - however, I'm not opposed to a distance (to an extent).

(no creeeeeeeeeeepy peoples please...)

If you decide to look at my profile, nice... if you decide to message me? Nicer. If you decide to rate me? Nice of you, but I won't know it's you... I don't have the "A-list" thing.
The two of us
