Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm not very good at this sort of thing. I am a bit hesitant about
having to define myself and worried I might come over as a massive
Actually it reminds me of writing a CV and I always freeze up when
having to sum up my life's achievements so far into some boxes
about jobs and GCSEs. So basically I really hate writing stuff
about myself. I'm currently avoiding doing a qualification to teach
what I do because it will involve filling lots of forms about
myself and writing positive self-summaries.
I like linguistics and languages (the good thing about linguistics
is you don't have to remember any of the vocabulary).
I'm good at cooking food (amazing - adult woman is capable of
There are many other things that I do and good qualities that I
have - like many English people I suspect I have been programmed to
feel really weird about telling people about them. You will just
have to find out...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do a lot of very fast typing. Well I work with D\deaf people (and
in that little d capital D distinction lies a whole can of worms
that could lead to a really boring conversation about Deaf
I am a union rep (of an anarcho-syndicalist bent!)
I am quite politically active but you don't have to be...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making dirty gin martinis
wearing my pyjamas all day...
gurning in photos - I have found it quite hard to find any photos
in which I am not pulling a disturbing face.
I am also good at:
sticking to my guns on matters of principles
looking after my friends
identifying wild plants
planning exciting trips
setting up camp in the night in wet weather and pretending
everything is fantastic so you feel reasured that nothing is going
to go wrong...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
At the moment probably the purple stripe in my hair.
I wear sunglasses a lot but not because I think I look cool but
because the sun hurts my eyes and I am very obedient and do as my
optician tells me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I will ready anything and everything. I like politics, I like
medieval and ancient history, I love sci-fi and fantasy (but prefer
feminist, politically aware stuff like Marge Piercy to dragons and
busty sword maidens). I love 19C Russian literature and Anthony
Trollope; I like Golden Age detective novels; I like Ted Hughes and
William Blake; I like Anthony Beevor, George Orwell and Angela
Carter. I have quite catholic tastes.
I am not very good at computer games; I try to move my entire body
rather than use the controls.
I like music! I love Shostakovitch and The Velvet Underground. I
like reggae and punk and rough sounding voices that make the hairs
on the back of your neck stand up. I loyally insist that I like all
of my friends bands and buy their albums even if I don't really
(but I do really love it all).
I like films both subtitled but also stupid comic book remakes. I
can't watch horror films or gratuitous and pointless violence. I
only stopped looking under the bed for scary men at the age of
about 22 and I blame shitty teenage horror film sleepovers. Paddy
Considine is great.
I love all kinds and genres of food but I am veggie and kind of
bored of having to justify this to people after 18 years (grumpy
face). I make a mean mouth blistering Ma Po Tofu.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cat, he is disgusting, but I will talk about him as if he is
some kind of genius cat/person. You can tell me to shut up.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How effective anything I do is
Should I cut my hair off ( I did, I now have a shaved head and an
enormous purple Elvis quiff)
Why are there so many slugs in the garden
Why people find it so easy to hate whole groups of people (and then
I remember the Tory party...)
Why do people post up pictures of their headless bodies! I don't
want to see your pecs...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a pint/ glass of wine; talking to friends; hanging out and
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I let strangers's cats sleep in my bed...
