Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My names Scott, I'm 29, living in Coventry. Everyone I know
describes me as a nice, happy guy, I consider myself easy-going and
friendly, and I'm also quite independent. I value honesty and trust
above all else.
I like pretty much anything geek
y, especially computers
, and robotics
, specifically combat robotics
), both watching and competing. I've previously been world
champion of antweight (150g) combat robots. Some of my other
hobbies include tabletop RPGs
, and drumming
, and I've just started doing
. I like having lots of hobbies on the go, it makes it
basically impossible to get bored :). I'm definitely someone who
prefers to be doing (usually playing) something over just watching
something, but if I am in the mood to watch something, It'll
normally either be Anime, comedies, action & martial art films,
'family' films, or any combination of the above. I'd probably be
more happy to watch things if I had someone to watch them with :).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as an IT Technician in a school. I've been there for a
few years now, and despite the annoyances that every job comes
with, I really like it. I've got a few business ideas that I'd love
to investigate at some point in the future, but right now I'm
comfortable where I am. In my free time I play a lot of video
games, mostly on my PC, see my friends, and do the other various
things I mentioned above. I'm not generally the sort of person who
enjoys going out pubbing or clubbing, so whatever I'm doing it'll
normally be either at home or at a friend's house.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Building stuff, I have a creative flare when it comes to anything
mechanical or robotic, and love tinkering. I'd like to think I'm
good at the various video games I play as well, although I might be
biased :). I also have a very good mind for logical things, so I
enjoy problem solving and that sort of thing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I get told quite often that I don't look my age, and that I have a
nice smile, although these things seem to not come across in
pictures. I think cameras have a vendetta against me. Personality
wise, people seem to pick up very quickly on the many oddities of
me, and that I make no attempt to hide my geekiness. We should
embrace who we are, not repress it!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I don't read as much as I would like to (something I
wouldn't mind changing), but out of what I have read, I love the
Harry Potters, the Artemis Fowls, and anything by Dr.Seuss or Enid
Blyton. I've also recently been reading non-fiction by the likes of
Richard Dawkin, and I'm really enjoying those.
Movies: The Lion King, V for Vendetta, Dr Horrible's Sing-Along
Shows: The IT Crowd, Black Books.
Music: I'll listen to most things, but metal/rock is my preferred
genre. Only things I really can't stand are rap/R&B/dance/that
kind of thing. I've always liked bits of classical stuff, but not
really known very much about it, so I've been trying to listen to a
bit of that recently as well.
Games: Too many too list! Some of my favourites are the Portal
games, the Half-Life series, Final Fantasy VII, the Mass Effect
series, etc. That said, I'll play almost anything, from racing to
RPG to shooter to puzzle. I'm also always trying out new indie game
releases, as there are some really amazing games coming out of the
indie scene (see Braid, Antichamber, Fez, Limbo, To The Moon,
Food: Sausages and Chocolate. (Note: I don't eat both together :P)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(in no particular order) 1. My friends 2. My PC/Internet 3. Video
Games! 4. Good Music 5. My other hobbies (Robotics, Lego, etc) 6.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Mad crackpot ideas for robots (and other things), Video Games, how
things work, whimsical imaginary things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely be playing something, watching something, or doing
either of the above with friends. Currently I'm also involved in a
D&D game that runs on Fridays or Saturdays with some friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't keep secrets (not my own, anyway. I keep other people's
secrets exceptionally well), if there's anything you'd like to ask
then please feel free to do so.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for a nice guy, if you're looking for a geeky guy as
well, and if you're geeky yourself :) If you're a gamer and you're
looking for another gamer to save princesses/shoot zombies/save the
world with. I'm interested in anything on the spectrum between new
friends and a long-term relationship, but please don't contact me
if you're only looking for sex.
Hope to speak to you soon :).
