Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have two cats (Posh and Becks) and I have become worrying
emotionally dependent on my two furry friends. I have caught myself
chatting to them in front of the TV and fighting for the duvet with
them at night. The obvious conclusion I have reached is that I need
to find a woman before I start wearing knitted cat jumpers or God
forbid, get another one. I’ve therefore decided to give Internet
dating a try, in the hope of finding the woman of my dreams, or at
least someone to help me clean the cats litter tray.
I am an intelligent, kind, caring man. I am naturally an introvert,
so sometimes I like to escape from the world and enjoy a good book
or overdose on a box set to recharge. Once those batteries are
charged, I have a sense of adventure and want to make the most out
of life. I am very interested in exercise and nutrition and I love
the energy this gives me.
I have some Irish heritage and consequently I enjoy a drink and
have an inability to get a suntan. Beach holidays are normally a
bit of a disaster for me, as I turn bright red on the first day,
but I do love city breaks. I’ve also lived abroad and speak French
(although it is a bit rusty now).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning is a very important part of my life. I work in education
(I have a vaguely techie job involving educational online stuff)
which I find very rewarding partly because I view education as an
equaliser in society.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Explaining why 'my cat does that'.
Trying to help my silver surfer dad manage his technology.
Playing hide and seek (with my niece)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Science fiction and movies especially if there is a
dystopian theme. Films like the Matrix, and V is for Vendetta
As for TV shows, The Walking Dead, Big Bang Theory, The Thick of it
(and the American Version Veep), Game of Thrones, the West Wing and
the new version of Battle Star Gallactica.
A few of my favourite authors are Greg Bear, Verner Vinge and Ben
Elton, Christopher Moore.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My home
2) My cats
3) My tablet - a Samsung (it's sooo shiny and lovely)
4) My laptop (because the tablet isn't that practical
5) A decent umbrella (I'm English after all)
6) My tools (my home was modernised, I think on the cheap, so
things constantly need fixing)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What life is about and how I want to lead my life.
Health and nutrition, I totally changed my diet and lifestyle about
a year ago.
I'm curious about the concept that we are on the verge of a
technological singularity and what this could mean for
Quantum mechanics - I'm not a physicist (far from it), but try
searching it on YouTube, it is amazing.
The past - my first degree was in modern history.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Possibly having a drink with colleagues, or meeting up with
friends. Otherwise simply relaxing at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm divorced (no children) and quiet to begin with until I get to

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should be kind, smart, funny and not mind having a boyfriend
with a dry sense of humour. You should be open to travelling and
exploring the world, with a sense of curiosity about life.
You should be looking for a serious relationship built on love,
compassion and trust. I don't believe in losing our identity as a
couple, but I do think that life can be so much better when you
have someone to share it with.
