My self-summary
Hey all, I'm Stephen and I hope you've been having a great day. How would I describe myself? For starters, a personality test gave me a INFP result ( As for me? I'm a gentle, awkward, geeky, creative, caring, odd accent performing, open minded, positive, World War history loving half-Bristolian, with a sense of humour ranging from complex to juvenile that keeps me easily amused. Just as happy getting lost in the tech the modern world offers or out camping with no one else in sight.

The last couple of years have been a big voyage of self discovery and with it both my confidence and anxiety issues have improved greatly. I'd like to take that voyage a few steps further and share it with someone else.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on a way to bring people together who are on the receiving end of stigma. The laborious process of job hunting. Recently started running a fledgling social media department which aims to expand a niche activity. Doing some graphics work on request in Photoshop to keep some money coming in. I'm out with the camera more and more. I've really enjoyed writing on my two different websites in recent times as well. A veritable feast one might say!
I’m really good at
Using the toaster.
Using the microwave.
Coming up with ideas that don't get used.
Getting lost in idyllic trains of thought.
Encouraging others to chase their dreams.
Going off on massive tangents.
The first things people usually notice about me
Apparently my eyes are "striking". They look all sorts of weird colours to me! That and the fact I'm not the skinniest of people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV shows - Luther, Spooks, Being Human, The Fades, Mock the Week, Top Gear, Spartacus, Homeland, Band of Brothers, The Pacific, Silent Witness, Misfits, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Sherlock, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, The Thick of It, Skins, The Walking Dead, True Detective, Poldark. Must admit I'm kind of enjoying Taboo for all its contrasts. With the exception of a couple, I have watched through most these shows several times, with Luther, Spooks, Being Human and Band of Brothers probably being my most watched.

Music - Muse, Snow Patrol, Meat Loaf, Sigur Rós, Mumford & Sons, things like that. To be honest, I'll listen to nearly anything, except rap or dub-step.

Movies - a couple of favourites are Die Hard (the original trilogy) and Saving Private Ryan. Typically though I find it harder to get into movies, unless it's the original Star Trek! More recently I loved The Martian, Interstellar, Children of Men, Rogue One, Edge of Tomorrow.

Food - spaghetti bolognese, roast dinner, carbonara, cottage pie. Sometimes a visit to KFC can't be resisted. I must have mentioned how awesome toast is by now? You may need to keep Galaxy chocolate bars away from me, mmmmmmm.

Games - many...far too many.

Nowhere else have I really mentioned my passion for motorsport, I absolutely love it! From short touring car races to watching the Le Mans 24 Hours all the way through. I'd say motorsport was my first love.
Six things I could never do without
Not exactly thinking out of the box here, but...

Friends, for as odd as they are
Family, for as disjointed as we are
Quiet time - important to this introvert
The glorious countryside
Coming home to our wonderful Border Collie's
Morning toast
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I can help people be happier. How I can turn the want to make people happier into something big. My next mini adventure. Why do people keep changing the toaster setting when I've got it spot on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sat in this chair, browsing, talking to friends around Europe and in North America over the interwebz. Living the high life baby!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hmmm. I once had to poo in a shoebox beside a busy road as a child? I guess that wasn't very private really!

In trying to be a more open and honest person, I wish to say I have had some significant battles with mental health over the years. It used to be severe, but as can be seen from my summary and what I'm doing with my life section, I've made great progress. I'm trying my best to continue on this positive trajectory.
You should message me if
You find me completely irresistible! Haha. That or you survived reading through my essay, in which case you deserve a cookie! In all seriousness, I'd love to hear from you if you think we have some things in common or have similar beliefs/personalities. I'd love to find that someone special, but good friends would be amazing as well. :)
The two of us
