Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a laid back, easy going guy. I think I've got a good sense of
humour, a bit off the wall, at times - I don't take myself too
seriously. Honest, and straight forward.
03/Nov/2013 - I'm just updating this bit so read on if you are
I'm not looking for a girlfriend. I've been out with 3 people, with
3 years between each one. When they leave, it's hard, and I'm tired
of it. I can't do it again. But, I would like to have female
friends. Someone I can have a drink with (just a drink). If you're
interested in being my friend, then read on, and give me a shout.
It would be nice to hear from you. Ed
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I enjoy living in Oxford. I live in a house with a friend of mine,
and I like the Oxford vibe and the drinking establishments. Big fan
of Gin and Tonic, Wine, and real ale. I create music - an
electronic music producer, and I also on occasion write poetry and
drawing. However, more recently I've just been focusing on the
music. I'm an MJ fan, but also like Funk, Soul, Jazz, Reggae and
Dub, DnB, Electro and progressive house. I'm currently working on
new electro swing track. Problem is, having to go to work everyday
is kind of getting in the way.
I've now started a jam session, where musicians come to my house
and we jam together. It's early days, but I hope it will grow into
something. It's fun, and a good way to meet 'music' people.
I work in Oxford, I make websites.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sounds cheesy, but being a good friend (if you're a good friend of
mine!) Also good at making an awesome Gin and tonic, and throwing
good parties. Pretty good cook too, I enjoy cooking when I have the
time. (Isn't this good - I get to blow my own trumpet about
everything I'm good at - or rather, think I'm good at!!). I also
play badminton, which I'm OK at.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- My friends.
- Funk Reggae and Jazz.
- Gin & Tonic, Fine Red Wine, Champagne, good English
- Cheese, Roast Beef with Yorkshires and Roast Potatoes
- Sleep, Humour, My Cajon and Bongos
I know this is supposed to be six things, but I thought it would be
more amusing to list everything! Some of it can go into a box for
when I am on that island. Some of cannot be put into a box.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can make more friends to expand my social circle, how I can
have fun (putting on parties, festivals, gigs, social
How I would cope being cast away, like Tom Hanks, in that film,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either at home feeling wacked from a hard week's work. Or in a pub
in Cowley or Jericho.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not vain, but I do take time to think about my 'outfit' when
I'm getting ready to go out. - I've occasionally had to change top
or jeans because "it just doesn't work with that jacket" or
whatever - but perhaps we all do that! - I only do this when going
out though, not on a daily basis when I'm going to work.
Other things about me:
- I don't like football, or cars, or stag doos. I'm a different
- Being a Pisces, I am sensitive to others and can be considerate,
thoughtful, and intuitive to people's feelings. However, being a
Pisces, I am also sensitive myself. I guess we are all sensitive
- I try to be a realistic, but am a romantic at heart. I'm a
thinker, and sometimes think to much! - another Pisces trait I
- I don't like reality TV. I live in reality all day, so want a
break from it when I watch TV.
- I tend to be a night owl. I can be tired at work but can wake up
in the evenings, so don't always find it easy getting to sleep! I
don't do early mornings. Or rather, I do, but I don't like them. I
like a good lie in.
- I'm outgoing and like doing activities. I can be spontaneous, but
I often tend to consider things before I do them. I like a lot of
outdoor activities, but not surfing or water sports - that is
something I don't like.
- I like music, food, and drink - so like cooking for people and
being with people who like the same.

You want to meet for a drink with the view to being friends and
