My self-summary
Hello. I'm John. I'm doing the polyamoury thing (it's very modern?). Appreciate that is not of interest to many people, and don't wish to be a nuisance, so I'm unlikely to make the first move on here unless someone's profile is explicitly non-monogamous...

I've just taken a change in direction in life, and have left office jobs behind to move to London to go back to university and train to be a therapeutic radiographer *waggles student discount temptingly*

I enjoy things. Here are some: books, indie music, films, modern art, wine, whisky, playing guitar badly, writing badly, running (fairly well - I've not fallen over in at least 2 weeks), gym, Dogtanian, hedgehogs, Adventure Time!, snow, monkeys, science, cheese, silly stories, tea, clever people who can tell me things, sci-fi nerdism, narwhals, kinkery, coversations about silly things, conversations about serious things, sharks, Boosh, penguins, travel, Adam West, alliteration, Charlie Brooker, clouds, Flight of the Conchords...will that do?

With regard to less tangible gubbins, I'm a big old pro-PC, pro-feminist, pro LGBTQ, pro-socialism lefty and although I'm all about (do people still say 'all about'?) the empathy (cf David Foster Wallace's 'This Is Water' speech) if you've ever read the Daily Mail and nodded in approval then I probably won't like you too much. Sorry.

Sometimes I write stupid stories and post them here:

I'd like to meet someone who's clever and funny.
What I’m doing with my life
Eating all the cheese
I’m really good at
Procrastinating, talking nonsense, looking confused...erm...I can juggle?

Hmm. Tricky. I'm going to steal what seems to be a popular answer on here and say 'my boobs'.

The six things I could never do without
My great family & friends, books, imagination and tea. And space-dragons that can tapdance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why anyone in their right minds likes marmite? Seriously. Come on people. Stop it. Put that foul jar down and step away. That's it. Good. Now, have you ever tried jam?
On a typical Friday night I am
I'm not sure! I've just changed cities and occupations, so my Friday nights are open to possibilities...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Not private particularly, but I'll admit that I neither like chocolate nor own a car. I know. Weird.
You should message me if
We seem to have things in common, you have a dog I can be friends with, or you want to argue about Marmite.
