Like everyone I like to read a lot, I like to travel, I like to watch movies. I like to walk everywhere because that gives you much more time to think, I like to paint and draw and make things. I love to explore London which has never ceased to fascinate me.
I'm a committed socialist and a bit obsessed with politics, a lover of kink, a complete bastard and all those other good things.
I just started work at the Homerton in Hackney doing psychiatry. It's good to get back to my ends.
I've been trying out polyamoury, and it's gone great, it'd be nice to discuss it with you. I'mnot set on this or any particular relationship style though. No current partners.
Arguing about things. What a stupid thing to be good at. I like it though, I'm very passionate about political and ethical issues. You don't have to agree with me on anything but it would be good if you liked talking about it.
I'm also very good at listening. But who's not good at listening? Even dogs can listen, in fact it's all they do. I should probably buck up my ideas, straighten up and fly right or whatever it is ambitious go-getters say to themselves in the morning whilst flossing their pearly whites
You should be really good at some thing/s, because it's no fun going out with someone with no interests.
People don't notice this for years and then one day they say to me, "Tom (that's me), I have known you for years (I've said this bit already) and as well as being incredibly good looking and a real catch for anyone who might see you on the internet I've just noticed that you walk very like a bear."
I may have used some artistic licence in that quote, but the fundamental point is true. I don't see the resemblance but no doubt I will when I get to know myself a bit better.
Books: I read a lot of books. Classics/sci-fi/weird intense shit.
I also read a bit of philosophy, particularly ethics. I can't classify myself though, I don't know enough, and every time I think I've decided on a world view the world changes. I'm really drawn to some kind of Kantian absolutist view of the world because I think I have a deep prejudice that morals should be hard to live by and I like how unforgiving it is.
I like films. My favourite film is 12 Angry Men. That's like your best china though, it's what you put out when the vicar is coming to tea. My other favourite film for when I'm not being up myself and trying to impress people is A Boy And His Dog which is a schlocky dystopian postapocalyptic film about a boy and his telepathic dog.
I like a lot of music. Disco, rock, indie, soul, punk, electro, techno, house and an infinite number of other genres.
Food: Anything and everything, I cook a lot though and really enjoy it, so I like to experiment and I like food that's had a bit of thought go into it. I try and learn a bit of local cuisine when I travel, so far the fruits of that have been a lot of great east asian food and a huge selection of mezze from when I was working in Lebanon.
That reminds me of an Italian restaurant that used to be on Fulham Palace Road near the hospital, they gave you ten percent off if you had fifteen or more stitches. I never got to try it out but I always wanted to do some much needed suturing practice on my arm and simultaneously eat cheap Italian food (I think that's the American dream)
You are interested, interesting, funny and wild.
My politics are sex work positive, trans positive and socialist so if you're wildly different to that we may argue.
Go for it and send the first message. Emily Davison threw herself in front of the Prince of Wales' horse so that you would have the right to message boys first in online dating sites. At least I think that was her demand, history was never my strong point
