Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just moved to London for work after 5 years in Barcelona. I don't
know that many people here and I can't wait to start exploring the
city so if anyone fancies showing me around...?
Hard to summarize oneself with few words but I'll give it a go...
I've lived in Barcelona for a few years but I'm originally from a
country much north of here. I came here for work and absolutely
love the city. I'm a pretty normal woman with an appetite for life
who enjoys traveling, meeting new people, hanging out with friends
I usually don't have a problem meeting people, I'm quite outgoing,
but I work a lot and we tend to hang out a lot between coworkers so
it's been a bit hard to get to know new people lately. I've never
done the online dating site thing before and I'm honestly a bit
skeptical. But some friends recommended it so I thought I would
give it a try and keep an open mind...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in marketing and I'm quite dedicated to my career, but it's
not the number 1 priority in my life. This is my third tour in
Spain but I'm not stuck for life, I wouldn't mind experiencing new
On my time off I hang out with friends, going out for dinners,
parties, day trips outside the city. Or if I'm staying home I'm
usually watching a movie, reading a book or just surfing in general
(hopefully planning the next vacation tip).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hmm this is a hard one. It would be easier to list what I'm bad at
(like cooking and singing!) But I'm usually good at meeting new
people, I'm quite extrovert. Learning languages usually comes easy
to me, I'm not disastrous a pub quizzes and I enjoy dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hard to say, you'd have to ask them. That I'm short (for a Swedish
person)? That I smile a lot? That I talk a lot? Laugh a lot? I'm
quite an optimistic person so maybe that's a thing that comes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Long, Blood in Blood out, Boondock Saints, Natural Born Killers,
Music: I'm an all-eater, I enjoy almost everything (except hard
core rap and over-fusiony jazz). But I have a soft spot for classic
Food: Italian, Japanese, Thai, Argentinian - and anything with
sauce. But since I don't cook myself I'm happy just to be fed.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Laptop & Smart phone
Pasta & red wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. Don't like to over-philosophize life,
prefer to live it.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a drink with friends, either in a restaurant, a bar or in
someone's house. Or, on occasion, on my couch with a good book and
a cup of tea (VERY season dependent!)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I snooze for over an hour in the morning...?
