In 2007, I was lucky enough to land a job in Atlanta - the EXACT city I wanted to be in (at that time). Although I still like Georgia, recently, I have been thinking that a less conservative place might be a better fit for me since most men here seem to be too conservative for me. I am experimenting with different locations on Match right now in the hope of connecting with some fresh people.
Prior to Georgia, I spent a lot of my life in the UK - I was born there. However, I was in America (Amherst, MA) from the ages of 1-5, and my first memories ever were in the US. I have fond recollections of attending Kindergarten and riding on one of "those yellow buses!"
I think that one of the first things that people notice about me is my accent... I have a non-regional UK accent, which is pretty clear (although I say so myself :)), however, some people have mistaken it as Australian or even South African. A few people get it right immediately; I guess it depends on whether you have an "ear" for accents. Personally, I've always been fascinated by different accents, and love imitating them... so watch out! Unless your accent is exactly the same as mine, I'll probably be imitating you! :)
Tell about yourself - your personality, lifestyle, etc.
I enjoy having deep philosophical discussions, and I prize integrity and authenticity. In terms of politics, I don't support any specific political group as I think they're all awful; there's so much hypocrisy in politics and among voters/supporters who don't seem to know why they're for or against issues, and don't think deeply enough about things... I used to consider myself to be mainly "progressive" and don't anymore... that said, I will always be pro-social justice (particularly criminal justice reform) and pro-public spending (e.g. on health, education, housing). I'm also pro-gun control, and against the death penalty, hunting, and violent video games. At the same time, I'm an independent thinker and don't automatically agree with the supposed liberal standpoint on every single topic. For example, I'm pro-life (except in life death cases) and pro-monogamy.
