Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It is in my nature to be self-depreciating. However I doubt that is
helpful to a dating profile so for the moment we'll skip that shall
Much better. I'm mostly cheerful and loyal to a fault. I read
voracious on a variety of topics. I enjoy the theatre, the cinema
and museums of all sorts.
I'm ambitious but at the moment hesitant at where to aim that
ambition. I'm seriously considering where best to tread next on my
I aim ever to be self improving. I play squash, both for my health
and because I enjoy it. I used to swim regularly and am considering
returning to doing so. I'm designing and building a telescope
(mostly at the designing stage, I need to work out how to roll the
brass and save for the lenses).
I'm also faintly eccentric and play board games, card games and
games of nearly ever sort.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment I work in Information Technology, supporting print
management systems. I don't plan to do this forever. My plans for
the future are in a state of flux while I try to decide where to go
and what to do next.
I spend my spare time working on a variety of interests and hobbies
or with friends.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a good, if recently rather uninspired cook. Recipes welcome.
Otherwise I tend to be quick to daydream and have a decent talent
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my accent, though I do try to dress strikingly (more often

the US as a teenager and a slight twang in my speech has never gone

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* My mind, my ability to think makes me happy, nearly as much as it
makes me miserable.
* Imagination. The world isn't a drab place (in fact it is amazing)
but a good imagination makes it so much more fun.
* Books. I love books.
* People. I'm a social person (despite any indication to the
contrary) and I enjoy the presence and company of other
* Sleep, per chance to dream.
* My glasses, as it would be extremely difficult for me to see
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the sense of deja vu I occasionally get might just mean I'm
remembering my entire life from somewhere near the end of it.
My growing disappointment that I can't possibly have invented a
time machine in the future, because I'd have taken it back in time
to show myself. And this hasn't happened yet..
