Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there. I'm Ben.
I'm a fairly amiable and harmlessly absent minded kind of a guy.
With a terrible memory and a tendency to forget what i'm doing, or
saying (literally halfway through a sentance). Although the
prevailing opinion seems to be that I'm relatively intelligent
despite this (not sure which definition of intelligent is being
used here)...the PhD researcher thing supports this I guess? I'm
quite a laid back person, and a bit of a dreamer, but while I'm
generally two parts kind and accommodating, I can be quick to
irritation about certain things as well.
My interests are fairly standard, verging on the slightly nerdy. I
enjoy reading, a good film/tv series, gaming, and my computer. So
basically anything with a good story, or involving a computer...ok,
so a little more than slightly nerdy. I spend a fair amount of time
relaxing in a pub with friends, but I am not the clubbing
I also like the countryside, although its not really an interest.
I've always lived in/near to the countryside so having the
occasional wander and some open space is more of a necessity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Very important academic-ey type things.
Nah, I spend my days fiddling about with software, programming, and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Reading, daydreaming, and working too hard I've been told,
especially when i have a deadline due...and i thought i was lazy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My stunning good looks?...You would have to ask people. Although
feel free to share your first impressions with me
I've been told by friends that I am in fact a really nice and kind
guy...this came as a surprise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read and i'll admit to being mainly a fan of
sci-fi/fantasy genres. Anything by Robin Hobb, Jim Butcher, Terry
Pratchett, Neil Gaiman Brendon Sanderson (the list goes on) are
always good, or whatever i happen to pick up....
I'm a big film/tv fan and my tastes are pretty much the same
(sci-fi, fantasy, or comic adaptations), although i enjoy a good
comedy as well. I like to go to the cinema when I can to catch the
lates film. Amongst my favourite tv are some classic series such as
Firefly, Red Dwarf, black books, stargate and various classic
comedies. I also approve of all the new series that have been
coming out recently as well (Game of thrones etc). I have been
starting to get back into anime a little recently as well...
I'm going to add a games section here. Although I often have other
stuff I should be doing these days I still like gaming sessions.
I'm a PC gamer, and enjoy rpg's and games with strong storyline
(Bioshock, Skyrim, etc). I'm also a fan of coop gaming. Dragon Age
Inquisition is currently my new gaming obsession.
I'm not too fussy about music. I generally enjoy rock/metal, but i
also enjoy a bit of folk, classical, etc. As long as its NOT drum
and bass, rnb, rap, or the like. Particular favourites include
AC/DC, Iron Maiden, Airbourne, The Answer, etc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Family and friends.
3. Bit of open space/quiet
5. The sci-fi genre probably
6. ...vital organs are pretty important
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Research: what I need to do, how to do it, and how to avoid doing
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends; gaming, reading, watching a movie, hanging out with
friends in the pub...usually the latter lest I get complained at.
What an action packed life I lead
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've just started a PhD... in swallowing. Make of that what you
...Also, I'm kind of shy
I have a lot of embarrassing life stories, but I won't mention them
here. You will have to get to know me before I tell you those.
You should message me if

If I sound interesting...and if you do, please feel free to give me
some indication (even a "hi") as its possible that I'll assume you
