My self-summary
I'm a person who like to do things and doesn't like to do other things. Some of these things are listed here.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a doctor, and I love it and it's intensely interesting but it also doesn't define me, in this case though it obviously does define me, as in now you think of me as that doctor. If you do me the favour of not thinking that I'll owe you one

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.
I’m really good at
Physically I'm good with my hands, dextrous, strong. I can put in a cannula before you can say Jack Robinson. I miss doing this now I'm on psychiatry, painting/making now has to provide me with that pleasure-in-doing

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.
The first things people usually notice about me
More interestingly one of the last things anyone notices about me is that I walk like a bear.

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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Really cut this down...

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.
The six things I could never do without

Tea.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things. And stuff you know. Probably things quite different to what you're thinking now. You're thinking, "Why is this profile so contrived and pretentious?", and to that I give a very funny answer because I've obviously thought about this a lot ahead of time. If only I could tell you what it was you'd be in stitches.

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)
On a typical Friday night I am
I don't want to be cliched and say I have no typical friday, so I won't
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am very open about sex, try everything three times I say. You might have been wrong the first two.
You should message me if
*If you voted leave or didn't vote then kindly fuck off*

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
