You should message me if
1) You are one of "the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles." (UPDATE: apparently this quote is basic. But I've loved it since I was 12).

2) One of your photos is a shirtless selfie taken in front of a mirror.

3) You're a fan - or at least a disciple - of the Comfortable Silence.

4) You don't own anything that cleverly misappropriates Britain's WWII mantra.

5) Social media slightly overwhelms you too.
