My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! I'm Simon. Thanks for stopping by!

--- BREAKING --- BREAKING ---

I'm back home from my trip to San Francisco! Well...actually, not quite yet. Back in the UK, but won't be back in London until just before the New Year. Want to get started on those 2015 plans?

--- BREAKING --- BREAKING ---

I'm not a fan of boxes like these, but unfortunately I can't think of a joke about that for here which I haven't already seen on other profiles. Oh well, fourth-wall-breaking-low-key-meta-humour it is! (You know, the kind that's so low-key/meta it isn't actually funny. That's why you're not laughing now. I'm sorry.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Usually working (I'm a software engineer) or being board or card games with my friends. I also play in an orchestra, and spend my leftover time reading, dancing Lindy Hop (think 30's/40's swing music), watching TV/films and playing games.

At some point I'm going to actually follow through on one of the ideas I have for writing a book or making a game. Or at the very least coreographing a dance routine. Hasn't happened quite yet, though.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- maths and logic-y stuff - I'm an analytical sort of person.
- walking the wrong way when I get out of a tube station.
- using bullet points to avoid constructing full sentences.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My rugged handsomeness. Or my sarcasm.

Or my use of self-deprecating humour to answer questions I'm struggling with.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like books that make me think or make me laugh - even better if they can do both. Jasper Fforde, Philip K Dick and Terry Pratchett are probably my favourite authors. I also find Gideon Defoe's "The Pirates! In an Adventure With..." series hilarious to a frankly embarassing degree (as in, laugh-out-loud-on-the-Tube degree, and I'm not sure it gets more embarassing than that). I recently read The Martian (Apollo 13 meets Cast Away, on Mars) which was excellent, and definitely recommended if you're into those sort of stories with a dose of hard Science Fiction.

Film-wise I have a fairly wide taste. My favourites though: not a strict list, but The Lion In Winter, LA Confidential, Once Upon a Time in The West, Stardust and North By Northwest are all up there. In slightly more recent films, Cloud Atlas blew me away in a way nothing else has done since.

I don't watch huge amounts of TV, but I'm a bit obsessed with Doctor Who. Don't worry, I can stop whenever I want.

I mostly listen to orchestral stuff - film scores especially. John Barry is my favourite composer, but since almost no-one I've ever met knows who he is, that's not much use as an answer to this question. But I also like assorted other things, like swing music, classical pieces (especially Russian Romantic composers), Muse and random 70s/80s concept pieces like Tubular Bells, The War of the Worlds and The Hunting of the Snark.

My favourite cuisine has to be Italian, with French very close. I have some slightly odd restrictions in my tastes, but I'll find something I'm interested in trying on most menus.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dancing - In theory, although I'm currently on an extended absense due to injury and in practice I'm getting by (albeit with a certain amount of whinging and complaining).

Friends - someone needs to be there to laugh at my jokes. Or else I'll have to start posting them to Twitter, and no-one wants that.

Humour - makes the world go round.

Music - What would the world be without music? Just a load of conversation and silence, that's what.

My glasses - I'm not blind per se, but they're pretty important.

Narratives - Some people claim they're what seperates us from the animal knigdom. Whether that's true or not, I love a good story.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I need to get done, and when I can get away with leaving it until.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the pub with friends or at home watching films. It's actually one of the less exciting - or at least less busy - nights of my week at the moment!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
the above comments made you smile.

Also please don't be shy about messaging me! As long as it's more than "Hi" I promise to respond, even if it's just to say "maybe two people with a 31% compatibility who live in different continents won't make the best match".

Given the only conversations I've had on here have been ones initiated by other people, I don't send (m)any first messages any more. So, yeah, take the first step!
