Standard stuff first: I work as an architectural designer which is....a job, and I have a 7 year old son who is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. We come as a package so, while he's got a mother already thankyouverymuch, if you don't want to date someone with a kid then I'm not for you and vice versa. Unless we can arrange to sell him to the circus for like £1m or something. I love him to pieces but business is business, right?*
My brain doesn't necessarily compute all the time and I often think abstractly. This can lead to interesting situations, and I'll be damned if I don't enjoy them. Other times I can be painfully logical - though that's mainly if I'm working on an excuse to get out of something.
I can be fairly outspoken in company I know (and love, aww) and tend to be fairly blunt with the people closest to me. It's just how I am and it is (mainly) meant affectionately as I have almost zero tolerance for bullshit. Basically, If I care about you I'll tell you exactly what I think about something....unless I think the truth may end with you causing me physical pain. I mean I'm not a complete idiot, right? Right??
I'm a huge music fan - I've an eclectic taste and tend to like stuff from most genres. Also, I don't believe in 'guilty pleasures' when it comes to music - if you like it then have the courage of your convictions to say so, no matter how awful you suspect other people may think a song is!
I love to read, with my some of my favourite authors including: Haruki Murakami, Paul Auster, William Gibson, & Neil Gaiman.
I'm very much into film and (good) TV and love trips to the cinema or lazy evenings working through a series on Netflix.
I'm a big sport fan, football etc..yada yada. But my favourite sport is basketball and I'm somewhat of an NBA fanatic.
I'm an easy-going, open-minded guy who loves the odd adventure when the opportunity presents itself.
*DISCLAIMER: I have never attempted and never would attempt to sell my son to the circus. Unless I get to have a drive of one of the clown cars.
Oh, and trying to get the hell out of Dodge.
I'm a good cook, and I have a good musical ear (just the one, the other side is RUBBISH).
