Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I freely acknowledge that I'm one of those weirdoes you meet while
online dating. Sorry about that. If I'm not your sort of weirdo, I
hope you find this out as soon as possible.
I'm pretty busy, and not terribly well-organised. The only way I
get anything done is by writing everything down on a sexy, sexy
whiteboard. If you have a sexy, sexy whiteboard, you might be my
sort of weirdo.
Ideas are pretty important to me. Discourse matters. I want
my beliefs and opinions challenged, and if I respect you I'll
certainly challenge yours.
(I was once trading messages with someone on OKCupid, and she made
some throwaway theological point I didn't agree with. I responded
with a thousand-word counterargument. She didn't respond, and this
was probably for the best. I was not her sort of weirdo.)
I like games.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For purposes of earning dirty money, I do computery things for a
fashion company, and know more about lingerie than I would ever
I'm studying towards an economics and maths degree in my spare
time, with an eye to doing a Masters when I graduate. The long-term
plan is to make scarily smart machines that know exactly what you
In my other spare time (what's left of it), I swing-dance. Lindy
hop, Balboa, Blues and vernacular jazz, mostly. By the standards of
most observers I'm pretty good, but by the arcane standards of
other swing dancers I'm just sort of alright.
Things I no longer have any spare time for include drawing, playing
the piano, circus skills (mostly juggling), and an assortment of
other hobbies that have fallen by the wayside over the years.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Height and facial hair, I imagine.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a weird relationship with books, kind of like how Norman
Bates has a weird relationship with his mum.
Here are the films I gave ten stars on IMDb: Django Unchained, Warm
Bodies, The Cabin in the Woods, Inglorious Basterds, 500 Days of
Summer, 50/50, Amelie, The Adventures of Tintin, Groundhog Day,
Kick-Ass and The Hunt for Red October.
My ideal film appears to be an offbeat supernatural romantic comedy
with extreme, stylised violence. Preferably set on a submarine
during the Cold War.
I quite like how in recent years, saying "I don't really watch TV"
has stopped sounding pretentious, and started sounding like a
sensible reaction to how much crap there is on TV. There's plenty
of stuff I'd like to watch, but all the good TV shows seem to
involve a lot of time investment. When I inevitably end up in a
horrible accident and need to spend six months in traction, that's
when I'll watch Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- The whiteboard
- Pepsi Max
- One heart, lung and kidney
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either in, studying, or out dancing. These are the two dominant
forces in my life.
