    Why disturbing?! Your thoughts would all be so eloquent and elaborate!



    You must, it's amazing. I don't get why people say it's heresy to use pineapple as a topping, it adds sweetness and moisture to the pizza
    Oh god, I hate marmite! I love the smell of it though :|
    Of course the heightened level of vocabulary would be great but some of my..more primal thoughts being voiced by him could just sound awkward.

    You say in the thread you are mid twenties and are currently single,even after long periods of time getting to know women only for them to 'go off' with someone they have just met/an ex..there clearly is something more amiss there than just sheer bad luck.

    How extreme is this 'rocker' aesthetic? I am a firm advocate of dressing for yourself and ust wearing what you want however it may limit the women you meet(if that makes sense,still retain the style as it will attract likeminded individuals but perhaps lessen if really extreme as it will give a greater but hopefully still likeminded scope..that made sense in my head..sorry.

    Personality wise,you discussed a general misanthropy which although is something I and many may share,it can be perceived negatively when projected outwardly to potential romantic partners(or indeed anyone). Perhaps a wry cynicism with a dash more faith in others..? just more...welcoming and open I guess. (please correct if I'm wrong I'm just basing this on your post..)

    How often do you socialise? and more importantly,where? cliche but similar interests can spark something more lasting than simple random approaches like those in clubs.

    In addition to this,how quickly do you make it clear to a woman(however subtly,I don't mean be sleazy and hit on from the start,(I've had a guy make it clear to me straight away he was looking for more than friends as he flirted/asked me out on dates while getting to know me as a friend i.e balance-although he turned out to be a bit of a player) that you are romantically interested?

    Although I tend to say hello and pet every animal I see while staring at their owners like they wouldn't understand me.
    I'm not being funny but if you patted my dog without asking me or at least making some sort of conversation I would think you were the rudest human alive.

    I'm a rocker.
    I'm a roller too, baby!

    Anyone else got Thin Lizzy in their heads because of that?

    ...No?

    Well, too bad.

    I'll definitely have to try it sometime.
    Bah, Marmite is not for me! Even the smell of it irks me a little.
    I remember I tried it as a kid and haven't touched it since. :lol:
    Isn't it kind of like a yeast waste product of some kind from making beer? I knew what it was years ago, but it's slipped my mind

    Try it again, your taste buds change as you get older :cool: Probably dulled by alcohol consumption.

    You're probably misinterpreting the humour in my sentence then.

    I draw the line at men wearing eyeliner. Though I do like tattoo'd and pierced guys. There's always someone for everyone, pretty sure there are plenty of people out there who find you attractive.

    Haha, I see your point. Sexy thoughts voiced by Stephen Fry wouldn't be particularly sexy. Although if you're into guys as he is, then it still works to an extent

    Yes, probably the girls I'm meeting. I had a chance with a girl earlier this year, we had a 'moment', I'm sure it wouldn't have taken much begging to go off and have sex that night, the chemistry we had was unreal. However, I chose not to as she was a little drunk and that's never been my style. I never even compliment girls physically until I've known them for a while. I'm wondering if I should jump onto other guys' bandwagons and cut to the chase.

    You can see on my profile if you like. The latest two pictures - one is my day-to-day dress, the more elaborate one is what I wear if I go to gigs. I still look dressed down compared to many of the other guys/girls there.

    The misanthropy is kind of an in-joke really. All of my friends think the same way, except some of them will literally not use public transport, or even go out in public places, because they hate people so much. Part of it is probably the fear/knowledge of being judged, they dress more extreme than me and people make comments to them unnecessarily all the time.

    I don't socialise often. I spend much of my time socialising online. I live in an area full of chavs, there's no alternative scene here. I was lucky enough to find my current group of friends about a year ago after struggling with making friends or getting on with people my whole life. My friends all have partners, they're engaged, they don't like going out. I go to one or two gigs a month on my own and I do my best to make friends there (I have hit oil a few times), else that's it.

    Generally, I don't make it clear by saying. I just do things for them, go the extra mile, make my feelings clear through actions rather than words. I like to appear dependable. Or if I use words, it's not "I fancy you", it will be "You looked rather good in that outfit last night ", or "I've always loved the way you keep me intellectually challenged, I like someone who makes me think!" to see if they get the hint

    Didn't realise you had photos-well you don't dress extreme at all,as far as the rocker spectrum goes, friends of friends I have dress much ore extreme i. ehave a mohican made of metal spiked implants,gothic tattoos etc..hair dyed loud colours.. yours is quite nice,add a nice fitting leather jacket would be great (weakness of mine,I wear mine nearly every day). Have you thought about cutting your hair a bit shorter and giving it that messy look? http://themmp.tv/wp-content/uploads/...tille-HAIR.jpg (thought not as extreme obviously) hmm or more of a jacoby shaddix hairstyle..more in keeping with the rocker idea

    (I like longer hair but that could really work..suit what you have currently though )


    In regards to how you communicate interest that seems fine,sweet and subtle

    hmm the all friends being in couples thing isn't conducive to finding someone..do they have friends you could meet?

    I'm a rocker. - This is my cup of tea. It might not be the same cup of tea as any non-rocker girls though

    I like black. - This I don't care about. I doubt many people are bothered which colours you like.

    I have a dark sense of humour. - We may differ on senses of humour. There are some other people out there with dark senses of humour though.

    I'm pierced and (mildly) tattooed. - This I don't care about. Some may not like it. Some may love it.

    I have a bit of stubble, sometimes grown out into a beard. - This I don't care about. Some may not like it. Some may love it.

    I dye my hair and I wear eyeliner. - This is fine for going out. Bit pretentious for every day but whatever floats your boat. Some may think it's fab. Others may not.

    I wear dark skinny jeans and vests and band tees. - Skinny jeans are a bit girly but whatever. I don't really care.

    I have (kinda) long hair. - This is fine. Expect for the people who don't like it. Then it's not fine.

    I'm confident about how I look, I don't care for people's judgements as I'm happy in my own skin. - This is fine as long as it doesn't stray into vanity.

    I look after myself and stay away from anything that causes me pain, so I'll never hang around people who get me down. - This is admirable

    Some may perceive as selfishness, but when something is important to me I put in a lot of effort and can be extremely thoughtful. - Why would people perceive you putting effort into something as "selfishness" ?

    I regularly finding myself saying "I hate people", - This is kind of a turn off.

    but I'm not unfriendly to anyone. - This is good

    Although I tend to say hello and pet every animal I see while staring at their owners like they wouldn't understand me. - This is weird

    I definitely don't like children. - This is fine for some people, not fine for others. For me, not fine, I have 4 kids.

    I play guitar pretty badly, but I'm not bad at the piano. - This is fine

    I'm highly intelligent and spent every year in school in the top classes getting top grades, having never been in detention. - It's great that you're intelligent. You seem to love yourself a bit.

    I'm a freelance I.T. engineer, working for my own company. - This is fine.

    I travel a lot, with my ideal holidays being of the adventurous variety exploring ancient ruins like in Rome, or Egypt, rather than say drunken clubbing holidays in Ibiza. - This is also fine

    My hobbies/interests include going to rock gigs and making new friends, spending time with local buddies eating pizza or Chinese and watching anime or classic movies like Ghostbusters or Nightmare Before Christmas, photography, the oddities of Victorian-era history (and history in general), comedy, plus everything I've mentioned already that sounds...hobbyish - This is all fine

    Is there anyone out there like me? - Yes I'm sure there are
    Do any ladies find this sort of person appealing? - Some do, some don't.


    Really was there much point to this thread?

    I actually don't know what it's made of. That's something I can look into when I have a painful amount of spare time :lol:

    I'm glad to have been a purveyor of information :ahee:

    Chinese and Indian food, yes yes yes! I used to hate Chinese, always loved Indian. Now I love them both and when mum says "We're having a takeaway, what do you want?!", I cannae decide. I can live without eggs easily, ugh

    Marmalade was another. I absolutely love marmalade on toast. And the toast has to be blackened by fire, I can't eat it soggy.

    From a toddler until I was maybe 12 or 13, I didn't eat the actual sponge part of a birthday cake, I'd only nibble on the icing

    Ah tell me about it! It's so hard to decide now. I can't believe I ever hated it.

    Aw, if you don't like eggs then do you not like omelette either? D: They're so nice though. I love cheese omelettes, they're so great.

    Having discussions about food always makes me realise how many things I haven't tasted because Marmalade is another one of those things I've never really tried. It's just like jam, right?

    :eek:I was the opposite. I always ate the sponge bit and never the icing. I still do that to this day because the icing is always way to sweet.

    What do you usually order? I always find myself sticking to the same foods every time, the very thought makes my mouth water :coma:

    Nope Truth be told, I don't hate eggs or omelettes, I just don't enjoy eating them. It seems a real chore to eat. Y'know, I'd eat one egg if I had something to go with it, but any more than that and it becomes sickly.

    You should try marmalade! It's hardly any different to strawberry or raspberry jam really, I expected something very orangey and bitter when I tasted it for the first time in maybe 10 years, but it was nothing like that at all.

    Oooh yeah, it is, you notice sweet things become sweeter over time. For example, I used to be able to demolish chocolate gateauxs and all kinds of cakes and now they seem kind of sickly
