I am quite impulsive, especially when it comes to booking travel. As much as I love a lazy Sunday, most of the time I really do prefer to be 'doing' stuff. I am quite opinionated and look for the same in other people, a good debate is healthy. Job wise I am the head of a Social Science faculty - which keeps me busy.

Looking for : Someone who shares my interests....can save me from spending my nights at my computer.....and isn't mental........Someone who is good with grammar/ punctuation...I am not.
I am really into travelling, I can talk about my dreams of world travel for hours....so people who would be happy to advise/ listen/ indulge are always welcome! Or someone who would sit in a pub with me and talk about how good any of the bands below are.
Music is my second love, at the moment I am reflecting on the fact that we have reverted to the late 70s/ 80s politically and culturally by listening to the Clash a lot. I also love Muse, Nothing But thieves, Foals, Joy Division, The Smiths, U2, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bastille, Scissor Sisters, Blur, The Stone Roses, Savage Garden, Fleetwood Mac,Arcade Fire,The Killers, Duran, Duran, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Suede, ....my fave band of all time The Libertines....and I have a soft spot for Westlife and the Bee Gees. My favourite films are 'Downfall', 'filth' and 'the Pianist'....you know all the cheery stuff.....but I also love 'The Lion King' and 'Dumb and Dumber'. ............I realise a list of bands does not make a personality but it is pretty insightful in my opinion.
I have attempted not to be too 'zaney' in order to attract sane people, so if I sound a little boring I am not I assure all. I want someone to explore London and beyond with.....I guess I am looking to date but i also want to extend my London social circle. I look slightly different to my pics as my hair is now a bit shorter and darker.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
......good conversation over a nice meal or bottle of wine....exciting huh? x
