Here's a tl;dr version:
Otherwise, read on.
Where to begin?
I'm British, so... if you like accents, that's a plus. Also an excuse to go to England every now and then. Along with the accent, there's the stereotypical, charming awkwardness... I can be quite reserved until I get to know someone.
I moved here in 2004, and I've been employed at the same company since 2005 (a medical device contract research company, currently a quality specialist). So - decent career, financially stable, with an excellent credit score. Politically I'm pretty liberal. I'm a feminist. I have a cat. I'm agnostic. I want to raise a family. That covers most standard dealbreakers, right?
Now for the fun stuff.
I have a range of interests; most prominently - swords. I'm a black belt martial artist in the Korean sword art of Haidong Gumdo (think Tae Kwon Do, but with a sword). It's also where I met a lot of my friends. Aside from that, I'm into some ridiculously geeky things, such as attending conventions, and playing tabletop board games. Things I geek out to: Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Sherlock, FireFly, Buffy, Agents of SHIELD (actually basically anything Joss Whedon), MCU movies, Star Wars, ninjas, anime/manga, YA dystopian sci-fi,
Otherwise, I enjoy disc golf, playing guitar, basketball, archery, hiking, photography, cooking/baking (I'm trying to eat healthier these days). I try to keep active, but I'm not at all opposed to binge-watching a show on Netflix if the mood calls for it. Oh, but I don't really care for watching sports.
I'll also get this out of the way - I've been married before (now divorced). That's why I came over here. We were young, and we ended up growing apart. That was several years ago now. I've only had a couple of other relationships since then, but obviously they didn't end up working out either. So here I am. Hoping the next one will also be the last.
If you're interested - let me know. With all the different search algorithms and priority sorting, I may never even see your profile unless you give me a sign. A like, favourite me, a message, visit my profile every day - whatever you think best! :P
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Probably more of a casual meeting, perhaps a cafe, or a tap room. Perhaps playing a game at Chatterbox or Fantasy Flight if you're into that. Maybe laser tag or bowling. Let's go win a crappy key-chain at Dave & Busters. No pressure, just looking to see if there's a connection, and hopefully have a good time. (Which is NOT code for sex).
