My self-summary
When I was younger I really wanted to work in the City for all its glamour and wealth; years later I'm still not glamorous or wealthy.

I'm probably best summed up as sporty, polite, well-spoken, university educated and reasonably average looking. My days keep me busy and I enjoy my life; while it's great on paper, it's restrictive on time and not helpful for meeting new people, especially a girl who also enjoys her life and I can get to know, so we can make our already great lives utterly outstanding.

Generally, my personality is laid-back to the point of being horizontal and I’m frequently described as honest, dependable and level-headed. But don’t let that fool you; I hide a competitive animal and burning ambition and drive to succeed on the inside.

Hobbies? Sport, amongst other things. I play hockey for a local club and I’m not too bad when it comes to badminton. I do my very best to balance all my exercise with eating, and given the chance I’m happy to put my chef’s hat on.
What I’m doing with my life
Mostly, I'm a spreadsheet monkey; sometimes, I find myself running around or reading or being sociable. Occasionally I save cats stuck in trees.
I’m really good at
Sarcasm and self-deprecating humour.
Eating.
Badminton.
Pull-ups (but I'm not gym-obsessed!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I (apparently) look like Keanu Reeves. I've also (somehow) been compared to Bruce Lee. Racists.

If not, then it's that I'm generally Chinglish and a little less than average height.

The six things I could never do without

Coffee
Exercise

Ambition
Learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why is everyone obsessed with the gym? Are we at peak protein?

All the wonderful places I haven't yet visited and when can I find time to go.

I should really learn how to snowboard.
You should message me if
Serious turn-offs for me are an inability to use all the letters of the alphabet, double-standards, gym-freakery and social justice warriors.

Things I value include honesty, sarcasm, a love of food and a willingness to explore the world.

Everything else is negotiable! (Well, you can't be a blood relative.)
