Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, my name's George and I'm a student. My university course is
something out of science fiction and my hobbies include world
domination through the ballot box (and, where necessary, judicious
use of murder and blackmail).
Outside of my more esoteric hobbies such as politics, I'm also
quite keen on reading - sci fi, fantasy, history, etc. - as well as
strategy computer games, watching films, walking, singing, camping,
musicals and sailing.
I've been told that I'm quite an easygoing and understanding
person, and I love people with sense of humour.
That being said, I do have an unfortunate appreciation for bad
puns, so whether I'm entitled to comment on what constitutes a
sense of humour is a matter of some debate.
P.S. Updating this to add that I don't log in to OK Cupid very
often any more but I still read and reply to any messages I get.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working towards an MEng in Space Technology - basically I
learn how to build spaceships and satellites while trying not to
electrocute myself or blow shit up. I'm in the final year of my
degree and vaguely panicking about finding a job after
One of my main hobbies is politics, which I know some people find
boring, but I do it anyway because a) I enjoy it and b) I'm fed up
with all the injustice in the world and want to hit it over the
head until it goes away. Plus I also recently became the chief
minion (she says right-hand-man but I like my version better) of a
pretty awesome parliamentary candidate, which tends to keep me
I'm also a feminist who believes strongly in intersectionality. I
think I might even count as vaguely militant.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mainly I'm good at protesting against things I don't like, writing
about things I do like, doing musical theatre (I once played a
Victorian policeman, wearing women's clothes and singing about how
depressed he was to be wearing women's clothes), camping in the
middle of the wilderness and generally knowing a bit about pretty
much everything. Except football and golf. I don't know anything
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Count of Monte Cristo, The Wheel of Time series, Harry
Potter, A Game of Thrones, The Commonwealth Saga, 1984, Animal
Farm, stuff by Isaac Asimov, anything by Arthur Clarke, history
books that don't take a year to read and assorted alternate history
books. Oh, and my favourite series of all time has to be "Rivers of
London" - if you haven't read it then go and read it now, you'll
love it :)
Films: V for Vendetta, 500 Days of Summer, Serenity, Lord of the
Rings, Scott Pilgrim Versus the World and lots and lots of
TV: At the moment I only have the time for watching How I Met Your
Mother, Game of Thrones and South Park. Oh, and Doctor Who. Because
the Doctor is awesome.
Music: A big, wonderful mess. I love lots and lots of different
types of music but my all time favourite musician has to be Billy
Food: English, Italian, Indian, Asian and any kind of sweet
pastries. Favourite meal has got to be family recipe spaghetti
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books, greenery, tasty food, friends, kink and feminism.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to put the world to rights/whether I can get away with a lie
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No such thing as a typical Friday night. I'm more likely to spend
them hanging out with friends or chilling at home, for example,
than going out to a nightclub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm definitely not vanilla.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to :) I'll always reply to a message. That said, it helps
if you like silliness as I'll normally default to one of those
modes at some point in conversation as my mouth seems to think
that's a great way of getting people to like me even when my brain
is screaming no.
