My self-summary
'A Slytherin with wings of eyeliner so sharp they could kill a man.'

I live in London. Moved here for work but my heart belongs to the north, Sheffield in particular.
I work in community development, it's great. Not sure it's particularly fashionable to love your job but I do.
I do craft. Well I start craft. My speciality is half finished scarves, individual mittens and unframed cross stitch.
I'm fairly opinionated. Lefty, secular, intersectional feminist politics floating my boat mainly. You know those people who say you shouldn't talk about politics on a first date? They're wrong.
I love maths.
My favourite book is Alice in Wonderland.
My favourite place is by the sea.
My favourite thing to smash is the patriarchy.
I'm untidy, I speak truth to power, I'm sex positive and try to body positive every day but recognise that it's ok to find that hard sometimes. I'm anxious and try to talk about it fearlessly to give others permission to do so.
Slowly and bravely becoming one of those women with awesome tattoos.
Tea is important to me. Brew, then sugar/honey, then milk. Non negotiable. I will make you delicious tea.
What I’m doing with my life
Making tea, drinking tea, buying tea paraphernalia, campaigning, buying new books, re-reading old books, knitting, cross stitch, am-dram, napping, explaining things with graphs, forgetting to blow candles out, baking, trying to afford theatre tickets, saying 'it's like that time in How I Met Your Mother when...', making hot Vimto, talking about the north. I recently made my first ever zine, all about Victoria Wood - hit me up if you want a copy.
I’m really good at
Venn diagrams.
Reverse parking.
Championing other women.
Drinking small quantities of wine.
Sneaking song titles into presentations.
Catching trains with seconds to spare.
Cross stitch.
Spotting Shakespeare quotes.
Getting my train ticket out of the self service machine really quickly.
The first things people usually notice about me
To look at - I'm short, probably wearing a silly winter hat of some sort and carrying lots of stuff for work.
On first conversation - I'm quite sarcastic but never mean, interested in your opinions and happy to share my own. I can't hold my liquor.
I have an excellent tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Agent Carter, The Hour, Studio Ghibli, Doctor Who, American Horror Story, Community, Masters of Sex, Daredevil, Green Wing, Neil Gaiman, Victoria Wood, Jessica Jones, strawberry laces, the West Wing, Jonathon Creek, Bitchmedia, Scandal, Josie Long, bacon sandwiches, Tim Minchin, Hitchhiker's, gravy, the Crystal Maze, hello to Jason Isaacs, Ex Machina, The Falling, Up, Guilty Feminist, Disney's Robin Hood (you know, the one with the animals), ready salted Chipsticks, How I Met Your Mother, Grey's Anatomy, Blackadder, peppermint creams, science textbooks, maths workbooks, Alice in Wonderland, Matthew Bourne, Rocky Horror, musical theatre, Return to Oz.
The six things I could never do without
Bookshops
Graphs
My electric blanket
Knitting
Strawberry laces
A job that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How did society let the dialogue on perfume adverts get so out of hand?
On a typical Friday night I am
Jamas, telly, takeaway.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
About once a year I spend a whole day panicking that I'm the Truman Show.
You should message me if
You're a feminist.

You're not going to lecture me on how I'm getting my feminism wrong.

Your books/films/TV list isn't made up entirely of white men.

If you vote Tory, use the phrase 'benefit scroungers' or call your girlfriends 'the Mrs', maybe we should give it a miss.

*I am in a long-term, serious, open relationship. I'm looking to meet like-minded folk who value good communication, great sex and who aren't looking for a romantic connection.*
