Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Sure of my own mind, and enjoy socialising just as much as relaxing
at home. I am attracted by passion, intelligence and ambition, but
good manners and a spot of chivalry will go down well with me.
Selling my soul in the world of Advertising at present, but when I
get to escape the office consuming food and drink (all sorts) is
high up on the priority list, along with numerous gigs/festivals,
and the odd decent film never goes amiss (both odd and decent are
appreciated). Recently got back into keeping fit also, so enjoy the
old gym endorphins...
I am feisty, intelligent, and warm-hearted, known to be spontaneous
when the will (and money) so allows. Now, for that next
'There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder,
mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad
as a hatter.' Alice in Wonderland
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Brixton-dwelling, finding ways to make the weekends so much fun
they carry me through to the next.
*Recent update * changing the current state of play and hurling
myself to the other side of the world at the end of June to
experience an Aussie way of life... Any tips/advice/mocking
welcomed to help me be slightly less terrified!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being literate (thankfully), speaking my mind, making people feel
at ease but also keeping them on their toes, multi-tasking and
procrastinating, exuding an air of confidence when I am feeling
anything but, and drinking Bloody Marys.
Lots I'm not good at also, but it doesn't ask me that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Quite possibly that I have nicked your pint for a cheeky sip on the
dance floor. And then given it back. Not bad manners, honestly.

From sushi to pizza, boiled egg and soldiers to a hunk of meat. I
have a lot of time for brunch.
Music: wide-ranging but extremely important to me. Can't be
bothered to list all sorts of genres or particular favourites -

not going to get along.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cheese, iPhone, friendship, temptation, my diary
(organisation-wise) and honesty.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How successful/unsuccessful I am in relation to my age and
expectations people may have of said age
-Restaurants I'd like to dine at
-Pleasure and pain
-Places I'd like to visit around the globe
-Whether drinking really is worth the inevitable 2-day
-Why so many people on here have photos with them on mountain tops,
alongside cats, or any other animal for that matter
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Resting in preparation for a heavy Saturday night. If not, then
having a couple of drinks with mates or colleagues and/or going out
for dinner. The usual, right?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a sucker for a Scot...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
a) you can use correct grammar and punctuation in your sentences,
b) you enjoy asking and being asked questions, c) you know how to
keep time, I'm afraid lateness is no good, and, d) you aren't
averse to taking control/being in charge/making plans. I may be
dominant in some ways, but it gets boring all the time - so
