The one thing I am passionate about...
The natural world, music, books, films, good TV, cooking, eating, being outdoors, playing guitar, going to gigs, climbing, science, prehistory, the universe, humour, thunderstorms, and talking nonsense with my friends!
I typically spend my leisure time
Watching films (at home & cinema), running, bouldering at the local climbing centre, reading fiction/non-fiction, and getting out for walks and seeing the world.
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for a fairly like-minded partner, but with enough differences to keep things interesting. I find curiosity, humour and intelligence attractive. I'm looking for someone who I could be best friends with and more. Ideally, we would mutually inspire one another, and be learning and evolving and exploring, so life would never be dull.
The first thing people notice about me
I have no idea what people first notice about me! They've never said.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. I'd not read much by Dickens and was worried it might be a bit stodgy, but it's a brilliant book. He had so much insight into the effects of poverty and neglect on children, but the story still manages to be exciting and uplifting as well as affecting.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am grateful for my upbringing and education, which have made me considerate & independent.
- I'm thankful for my friends, who keep me sane and insane.
- I'm glad I'm relatively fit and healthy, so I can be physically active.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
