I do NOT look for smokers.

a y chromosome.

Aside from that being racist, disablist, misogynistic, a general lack of ability to think for themselves. Somebody with lots of hang ups about themselves and who is massively insecure. I don’t want to be a mummy, a big sister or somebody’s emotional crutch.

Don't look for gamers or smokers.

Addicts - whatever form that takes. Be it smoking, drugs, gambling, exercising .

Also someone who has different music tastes to me because it’s part of my lifestyle .
