Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I teach Lindy Hop and dance competitively on a team and with
partners, draw/paint in my free time, do freelance design work, and
bake healthy treats. I sing at most times and enjoy musicals and
opera, though you'll hear me sing anything. My friends and I play
board games every week, and I love the social aspect of gathering
around a table and laughing at our ineptitude.
I like to travel, and I've had the pleasure of venturing across
Canada as well as a few weeks roaming Italy and Greece. This June I
had a wonderful time relaxing on some beautiful Swiss lakes and
experiencing the Swiss country life. Even had a quick stop in
Iceland where there is never ending daylight.
There are two tattoos on my forearms in the form of Norse runes,
representing my Danish heritage. I have a deep love of history and
anthropology, even if it has only ever been a hobby, and always
find some way to learn of ancient cultures.
Instant brownie points if you like and appreciate British humour,
such as Fawlty Towers, Blackadder, Monty Python, and Fry &
Laurie. I suppose you could also be British. Or you dance, have
tattoos, or bake.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dance, and the instruction of dance, takes up a lot of my time and
I love it. I travel to competitions all over the continent, as well
as travel for the fun of it. My goal is to do what I love, see the
world, and make the most of the time I have. When not dreaming of
this I am a freelance artist and a Manager.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I empathize and listen well, so I'm just someone who is easy to
talk to and easy to relate with. Making people laugh is always easy
for me, though usually at my own expense.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: R.A. Salvatore's works, History of Warfare, Stieg Larsson's
trilogy, Jeffery Deaver, Sherlock Holmes, Shakespeare. I realize
these are more authors than actual book titles.
Films: Tough one. Foreign films like Run Lola Run, Amelie, Seven
Samurai. Classics like Hitchcock's works, Casablanca. Iron Man was
pretty good. The Bond films of course. I'll watch anything
Music: Johnny Favourite Swing Orchestra, Louis Jordan, Count Basie,
Fats Waller, De Phazz, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Muse, Wir Sind
Helden, it's a very long list.
Food: It would be quicker to list the things I don't like so...meat
of any kind, though fish I don't mind, dairy, brussel
sprouts...that was quick.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, shelter, friends, books, dancing, peanut butter.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just about everything, I have a hard time keeping my brain quiet as
it tends to track multiple thoughts all the time. Commonly found
thoughts include music, dance, the future, ancient history, some
line I heard somewhere and trying to trace the source.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday is the one night a week I'm not doing something, every other
night of the week I'm either out with friends for drinks and a
movie or at practice for dance. I guess that means on Friday I'm
