Actually, I'm kinda looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with.
I'm a bit of a strange one really (or so I'm told, but I don't believe everything I hear).
I couldn't tell you the name of a single actor / famous person I find particularly attractive, but I could easily give you a list of fictional characters I've fallen in love with over the years. Odd eh?
I was a bit of a book geek WAY before it was fashionable!
I'm not interested in bullsh!t & bragging, pubbing & clubbing or all the usual bullocks & bluster.
I am generally cunningly disguised as a responsible adult - this is merely to fool the public.
I'm me, I have no interest in trying to impress you, you either like me or you don't.
I have a past & history - do not judge me on mine, I will not judge you by yours.
I have my own ideas & opinions - I will accept & respect yours, please do likewise.
If you want someone to look after you, make you feel needed or complete you, please jog on.
I'm strong, independent, fiesty, eccentric & a one off. I'd like to find my male counterpart.
Lets start at the beginning...
I was a baby when I was born.
Screwed up a few times.
Did a few good things.
Ended up here.
Too truncated for you?
Ok, the longer version :-
I have a number of passions in my life including books (fantasy fiction, satire, comedy, parody, Arthurian legend, historical), writing / poetry, animals, the great outdoors, gardening (which I'm rubbish at, have more enthusiasm than talent) cooking, spending quality time with friends, LARP, learning new stuff, motorbikes, tattoos & piercings, rehabilitating problem horses - ooh, loads of other things too probably.
My music tastes could be classed as eclectic - I like most classical, heavy rock & metal, most 80s & 90s cheese & indie, some thrash / glam / cyber / industrial, jazz (but not contempory) - pretty much anything apart from rap, R&B, D&B and other rubbish of that ilk (although I quite like Eminem).
If you don't like cats, dogs or horses, please don't mail me, they are non negotiable - however they are my responsibility and will not be foisted on you.
I have a 5 cats and a dog who live with me full time, but also a number of 'waifs and strays' come to me to be loved, nursed and cared for before being rehomed privately.
I've also got a number of horses & ponies, but they are all out on long term or permanent loans.
My animals are my surrogate family, and in my eyes are far preferable to children and relatives as they don't answer back! Nor do they leave their dirty washing on the bathroom floor or eat me out of house and home...
Although saying that generally other peoples kids are ok... they're easier to scare than my own... *evil chuckle*
Bored sh!tless yet?
I'm generally fairly easy going, warped soh, honest but diplomatic (but still gets me into trouble every so often!) and a bit quirky.
I'm an optimistic cynic with a sharp mind and sharper tongue.
I am not hugely fussed about 'romantic walks / walks on the beach', 'wild nights out wid me mates' or 'cosy nights in with a dvd and a bottle of wine', nor do I proclaim to 'love going to the gym' (but if someone wants to kick my a*** back into gear, well that's fine with me).
I'm struggling with profiles that state that the person likes 'having fun' - my idea of fun might greatly differ from yours...
I spend a fair part of the year living in a fantasy land named Erdreja, I love it there, and yes it's ok, they know me there... If you understand this bit well done :)
Lost the will to live yet?
No? Carry on then soldier :)
For the first time in many many years I have stopped dying my hair and have let it grow out 'au naturel' - it's a mix of steel grey, silver and white - I rather like it.
I work in retail at the moment which has no responsibilities what so ever & I love it - I'm paid to spend other peoples' money for them (what's not to love?), but also qualified in several other unrelated spheres (chef, hypnotherapist, riding instructor to name but a few) - Jill of all trades, mistress of some.
Not really into the pub / club scene as I rarely drink alcohol - I have much more fun sober. Do love live music in a cosy pub though.
Do like good coffee too - nescafe is NOT good coffee... however any caffeine will do in a crisis.
Got one child, (who's 18 now) - didn't enjoy the whole parent thing *shock* *horror* Oh I'm such a bad person!
Other peoples kids are generally ok though.
I've officially hit middle age.
I missed out on the 'live fast, die young, be a good looking corpse' bit, so I've decided that I'll serve out my three score and ten years and no more.
I guess it's downhill from here on in, which should be a damned sight easier than the first 35 years! Whhheeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
Are you still here?
Well done, your stamina speaks well for you :)
I suppose I'm looking for someone extraordinary / a swain / a consort / my equal and exact opposite number.
I guess I'd like to meet & spend quality time with someone who can make me laugh and occasionally blush, who makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up & butterflies in my tummy, who shares some of my views on life but is complete in himself and doesn't 'need' me to fill in any holes - someone who both compliments and contrasts with me.
Am I asking for too much?
Ok, I missed a few bits:
1 - If you type in txt tlk please do not expect me to respond - I speak & type English. If English is not your first language or you are dyslexic then fair enough, but please do me the courtesy of letting me know.
2 - I am NOT one of 'da nuttaz' as was recently mentioned in a message to me. I am fully compis mentis and have no mental health problems, I am however quite eccentric.
3 - I rarely drink alcohol and I absolutely detest football, so if you are a regular drinker who religiously watches every football match played I cannot see that we'd have a huge amount in common... but I'm willing to be open to the possibility of being proven wrong.
4 - No photo, no reply - fair's fair.
5 - I have no real 'baggage', no emotional problems/issues and very little angst, nor do I wish to have anyone elses offloaded on me. If you are still pining for your ex or are under the impression that because I am female that I may be anything like any other female you've ever met, you are very sadly mistaken. I am an original :)
Congratulations for getting this far! - if your eyeballs are not bleeding by this point then you are one of the lucky ones. Or possibly one of the unlucky ones, I've not worked that bit out yet...
