Right...now you're hooked...
Been told that I'm a "charming, funny, clever, sexy, naughty, confident bit of Northern rough." Well, I always knew that, but I'm also a multi-lingual former teacher, lecturer, writer, traveller, rogue, vagabond, ne'er-do-well and troublemaker - a cynical, dry, sarcastic grump and an enthusiastic, sensitive, loving idealist with a dry sense of humour and a heart that is too big for its own good. Sometimes, I'm just a dickhead.
I have lots of good party tricks. I can touch my own nose with my tongue and memorise a deck of cards. I am solvent, have a nice car, smell good, wear socks that match, know how to cook and am clean and tidy. I love my daughters. One is grown up and the other is living with me.
I've been imprisoned in a Latin American country. It's a long story and I'll tell you about it if I think you're the right kind of person - it wasn't for drugs. I speak Spanish, Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese. You can test me if you like.
Just done a test and found out that I'm a Hornivore - or a random, brutal sex master (RBSM). That is, a naughty, screwed-up, roaming, sexual, subhuman.
Half manly, half bestial, I act on instinct, animal charisma and my own selfish, orgasmic requirements. My appearance and personality have evolved for the hunt and when ass beckons, I oblige, they say. Ass. Indeed.
I'm doing a part-time PhD, lecturing and teaching, tour managing, writing and training for marathons.
(books) The Road (recently); Yes, I cried when I finished it. Otherwise, too many to mention. (cinema) Amores Perros, Cinema Paradiso, Crash, Closer, The Godfather, Once Upon A Time in America, Leon, Nil By Mouth, Oldboy, The Deer Hunter, Dangerous Liaisons. (music) wide range of all genres: I love Jazz, Soul and, especially, Motown, but my Desert Island Discs would be an iPod full of all of Led Zeppelin, Van Morrison, Neil Young, John Martyn and Thin Lizzy. My dirty secret is Abba. (food) Middle Eastern/ Mediterranean. Meat. Fish and proper chips.
My experience on here has always been that, with one exception, it's been the lower percentage matches that have sparked and clicked. So, opposites attract and likes tend to repel for me. Having said that, I guess it's also down to what you've put in your quiz answers and whether it's the truth.
You're intelligent, kind (this is an extremely underrated trait), challenging, creative, adventurous, authentic, thoughtful, sexy, a bit scary, provocative, spiritual (but not religious or into crystals, healing and other such New Age mumbo jumbo), lefty-realist (proper socialist, i.e. not vaguely nice lefty liberal and not SWP/Respect), slim or curvy but not overweight (unless you are Julie Burchill), well-travelled, self-aware (but not self-obsessed), like to explore London and other places, like markets and second-hand bookshops, like trains more than planes, like bicycles and walking (but find nice cars sexy).
You know the difference between "knowing your shit" and "knowing you're shit," You are not a Tory (exceptions at the end) and you do not get your politics from the Sun or the Daily Mail (no exceptions).
Sexually, you are adventurous and interested in new experiences and like to do daring, naughty things because it is thrilling and turns you on. However, you also like vanilla on the grounds that Ben and Jerry's vanilla is better than Wall's tutti frutti.
You should also message me if you are so hot that none of the above matters...
