Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I was once described as a riddle wrapped in an enigma, I have old
fashioned values (I believe in fair play, honesty, courtesy, and
keeping your word), but at the same time I have quite a modern
outlook (I value freedom of expression, I don't hold with racial,
religious or sexual prejudice, and I don't have any preconceived
ideas about gender based roles), I also firmly believe that self
praise is no recommendation (so I'm really bad at this sort of
thing), but if you ask me specific questions, I'm more than happy
to answer pretty much anything.
My friends tell me I can be very witty, I generally find that's
only the case when I don't try too hard (at least that when they
laugh the most). I have a somewhat dry/sarcastic sense of humour
which sometimes teeters on the edge of the surreal.
I like to think of myself as a realist (but I know some people
would consider me a pessimist), but even when things go wrong I can
often find a sort of ironic, grim amusement from it.
I'm a bit of an introvert, I find large social group to be
exhausting, and I tend blend into the background, but I do like to
spend time with good friends and have long rambling conversations
that when you reach a natural pause, you sometimes wonder how the
heck you ended up talking that. I know tons of useless information,
unfortunately because it's useless, it's not particularly useful in
pub quizzes (darn it all)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking each day as it comes, never planning too far ahead, because
you never know what is round the corner.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Excel formulas, Self Deprecation
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My complete disinterest in all things fashionable
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I really like the 'Culture' books by Iain M Banks, but I
like most Sci-Fi and Fantasy providing it has a coherent story
(preferably with some decent character development).
I also like the work of Douglas Adams and Terry Prattchet.
Movies: I like movies which make you think, I'm a big sucker for
movies which start in media res, but a high octane action movies
can also be good providing it doesn't try to take themselves
seriously and/or rely on the "star power" of the main
Shows: I'll give anything by Joss Whedon a try (loved Firefly), and
I thought Agents of Shield had some really good episodes. Arrow is
(mostly) excellent and I'm looking forward to The Flash when it
comes out. Again if it's Sci-Fi or Fantasy, I'll almost always give
it a try.
Music: Hard to say, I don't generally listen to much but if I hear
it I like a bit rock/metal music (not thrash metal though), or
classical. I really can't be doing with Rap music though...
Food: Not really into spicey foods, I'm a complete spice wimp, if
it's hotter than black pepper, I probably won't like it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
As it says in the movie Fight Club "The things you own, end up
I could live without pretty much everything if I had to, but I
would miss my computer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Far too many things to even begin a list
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, doing pen & paper roleplaying games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sometimes think life is a game to which everyone else knows the
rules, and I either lost my copy or never came with a set

You want a kind, considerate person who tries his hardest to be the
