Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy meeting new people and exchanging points of view. I am open
minded and I want to find someone who gives me a point of view that
I had not considered before.
My main interests are the arts and politics. Especially films and
books, but I also enjoy theatre, music and stand up comedy as well.
I like playing games too, both board games and computer games. I
try to stay on top of current events. I am interested in equality,
economics and gender politics as well.
I am equally at home indoors or outdoors, I started running last
year and I am finding it a great way to relax. I have always
enjoyed country walks or exploring a new town or city.
I am a bit of a geek and have a lot hobbies which I dabble in, from
making games to blogging. My goal in life is to be an author or
political writer or documentary filmmaker or all of the above. I
like trying out the unusual things you find in London, recently I
have tried Secret Cinema, The Lost Lectures and The Festival of the
Spoken Nerd. If any of these things sound interesting to you then I
am sure we will get along.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work running elections and my free time is spent working on my
various creative projects, my novel, my game and my blog.
When I can get time off work I travel. Last year I visited The
Netherlands, Austria and Poland. This year I am going further with
China, Russia and Iceland. I plan to visit as many countries as
Generally when I am not writing, crafting, working or traveling I
like a few drinks or a game with friends on a quite night. Or if
there is an interesting event on somewhere or a gig or an
exhibition that sounds equally fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Remembering strange pieces of trivia and weird facts. Did you know
that if you could put the planet Saturn in a bath big enough, it
would float? I am good at coming up with ideas to do on a night out
- even if it's just suggesting a drink in an out of the way pub
which will be less busy than normal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am polite, there's nothing to be gained from rudeness
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My taste is quite eclectic but I am always keen to have something
new recommended to me. There's a list of some things that come to
mind: Apocalypse Now, LA Confidential, Waltz With Bashir, Primer,
Tinker Taylor Solider Spy, The Bridge of the River Kwai, The Usual
Suspects, A Scanner Darkly, Waking Life, Alien, The Shawshank
Redemption, anything by Wes Anderson or the Coen Brothers. I also
like going to Secret Cinema a lot.
I try to keep on top of current films. I especially like
documentaries (Errol Morris is my favourite director), when done
well they entertaining and moving. I'll watch most things apart
from reality TV.
In terms of music I like a bit of everything (I know that's not
very helpful). Right now, I am mainly listening to VNV Nation - I
discovered them recently and can't get over how good they are. But
I am interested in most music that is broadly "alternative". I will
give anything a go apart from bland X-Factor pop or misogynist
There are too many good books to name but some which have made a
big impact on me are Brave New World, The Wasp Factory, The Player
of Games, The House of Leaves, and Dune, to name but a few. I am
reading Perdido Street Station by China Mieville right now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Books - always keep reading
Music - I can't go anywhere without something to listen to on the
My watch - being on time is important to me
My phone - sorry, but I am lost without it
Films - always a good way to spend time
Something to look forward to - what else is life for?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future. I like making plans. The more ambitious the better.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out for a drink with some friends. I can usually be found around a
cinema. Failing that, I am probably playing board games or at some
variety of event
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I might fill this in later
