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previous writing on this page was rather long winded – but rather amazing if I do say so myself – however, it was a tad outdated.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
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 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).
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.
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).
My laptop (it's how I communicate with family)
My family (though I could do without them occassionally :P)
Not sure what else...
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?
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.
