About my life

My name is Harry, I am 22 years old and I’m a wheelchair user with Autism. I require assistance with aspects of daily living. I’m a fairly introverted individual, nevertheless I would love to schedule more trips outside of my home, visiting shops, going for coffee, or going further afield with someone who understands my requirements and has similar interests to me; where we can visit new places and connect with new people. I currently live in my family home but will soon be seeking to gain full independence, as I will be moving into my very own cottage in due course.

I enjoy many things in life. My main sources of pleasure include video gaming, manga, graphic novels, and Japanese anime. However, my favourite games are Pokémon, The Legend of Zelda, Mega man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Final Fantasy, and Jo Jo’s Bizarre Adventure. I use Nintendo Switch, 3DS and the PC. I gain enjoyment from watching horror movies regularly. My all-time favourite horror movie is Halloween, as you’ve probably noticed from above, also any Neil Breen films I also love.

I am a supporter of LGBTQIA & human rights, so if this does not bode with you, please do not apply. I enjoy fortnightly visits to Harrogate with a youth LGBTQIA group run by North Yorkshire Youth. I also meet people at various Pride festivals in the region. I also love to attend the annual Comicon in Harrogate.

I take pleasure in forming regular habits. Every Friday I attend a neurofeedback clinic in Harrogate. If I arrive early enough, I like to have lunch beforehand in the café downstairs. I love to go into town to visit my favourite shops & finish up in the manga section in Waterstones, followed by coffee in their cafe.

Car driver essential.
