I'm bisexual, but I find women more attractive, and because this site doesn't allow bisexuality as an option, my profile will be switching between seeking for male and female. Before I get any moronic comments about being 'greedy', 'not being too fussy', or 'needing to make up my mind', I develop an attraction to the *person*, and not the genitals they happened to be born with.
I'm quite romantic and traditional, with a nerdy & quirky sense of humor.....and I *love* 'cracker' jokes & puns/word-play.
I currently work as a teaching assistant & support worker in the English department of a Secondary school, and will be training to teach English at a Secondary level, once I have gained more experience of working within a school.
Literature has always been a big passion of mine, and my degree is in combined literature & language.
I love to read- especially Victorian & Romantic literature; Gothic & Horrors; Romantic & Metaphysical poetry; Fantasy- with my favorites being the 'Game of Thrones' series, and 'Lord of the Rings'....but I also have a fondness for the 'Harry Potter' series, from my childhood.
I love dystopian sci-fi, most forms of vampire-based fiction (with the exception of 'Twiligh't & the 'Morganville' series) and the darker (original) fairy tales.
Some of my favorite books are 'The portrait of Dorian Gray'; Jane Eyre'; the Anne Rice 'Vampire Chronicles'; 'Dracula'; and the collected works of both Poe and Shakespeare.
I also love arts & crafts- particularly knitting; customizing clothing; jewellery making; sewing; painting; and sketching.
I love cooking- particularly baking, and am a vegetarian myself (although I am not militant about this, as I view the decision to eat meat- or not- as a matter of personal choice & personal conscience).
I enjoy watching Fantasy-based films; Jim Henson puppet-based productions from the 80's; old B-movie horrors; Hammer & Universal monster/creature features; 80's comedy- like 'The Young Ones' & 'Bottom'; Surreal & silly comedies ('Mighty Boosh', 'Blackadder', 'Monty Python'); Horror films; Tim Burton films; cult classics like 'Buffy' & 'X-Files'.
My favorite types of music are Goth; Metal; Industrial; Punk; EBM; Grunge; Rock; and 80's & early 90's Indie.
I like body mods, and currently have 9 piercings, which are:
*1.2 x 6mm lobe piercing, one in each ear
*1.2 x 8mm tragus piercings, one in each ear
*1.2 x 8mm labret stud or horse-shoe barbell; or 1.2 x 10mm BCR through the middle of my bottom lip
*1.2 x 6/8mm barbell, through my left eyebrow
*1.6 x 10 mm vertical navel piercing
*1.6 x 14mm barbell, one through each nipple
*1mm stud, with a 4mm flat disk, through my right nostril
I also have plans for tattoos, but the designs for them are a work in progress at the minute.
