My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love the outdoors & animals in particular (used to study bats and praying mantis's ... mantisi? ... mantiseseses?! You get the idea). I consider myself fairly intelligent and enjoy stimulating conversation, although politics & sports are out (just not my cup of tea). I have some amazing stories & am planning on making many more, looking to find someone to share them with. I dislike the pub & club scene, I'm more of an outdoors sort. On weekends I like to get out of the house & go for a walk, a hike up the mountain or for a picnic with my friends.

I'm made up of contradictions: I love the outdoors but get a kick out of dressing up in a suit for a fancy night out; picnics are fun but so is staying in & cooking up a storm; I don't wear my heart on my sleeve but am happy to show plenty of affection to the right person; I'm a little stern at times but can also be very quirky too :)

I have to admit though that I'm a bit of a romantic, so if you like surprise candle lit dinners or snuggling up with a cup of hot chocolate & a movie then apply here. I like to make a few fantasies come true for that someone special. For me a perfect date is one where we head out with a plan, but we go where the day takes us.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished my Master's in Zoology a few years ago and am now working as a BA :P, having moved up to Pretoria. So new city, new job, new friends, bring it on!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Problem solving
Sussing things out
I'm an INTJ personality type so that tells you all you need to know, perhaps too much.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Is my smile, followed shortly after by my accent. It's a bit of a mix between English, Scottish and South African so people often battle to place it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The Hobbit + Lord of the Rings Trilogy

'Allo 'Allo
Big Bang Theory
Dad's Army
How I Met Your Mother
New Girl

Rock - U2, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Michael Jackson, Linkin Park
Alternative/Club - Daft Punk, Cafe Del Mar, Deep Forest, Groove Armada
Most of the good 80's music - Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen
and a whole mess of one off songs from a wide variety of artists
Anything but Rap or Hip Hop

Anything spicy really.
And I live for desserts!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nature (couldn't live in a Metropolis cut-off from the bush/mountains)
Internet (though I can manage for a couple months when in the field)
A really good book
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
way too much!
Mostly philosophical stuff that I probably have no business thinking about (meaning of life, fate of humanity, life from an animal's point of view, the future, the past, the evolution of things from past to present i.e. spiderwebs, flight, bird song)
Socio-psychological conundrums (might vs right, wealth vs poverty, men vs women, is religion really necessary in the modern world)

And when my brain is well and truly burned out I like to just pick a quiet spot in the bush/forest/mountains, switch off and watch the thunderclouds roll in over the savanah and smell the rain.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I'm not in the bush then I'm with friends just hanging out, or wrapped up with a book and cup of hot chocolate at home.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are kind, caring, have a good sense of humour and are as willing to go out hiking in the bush as snuggling up by the fire. I'm not looking for G.I. Jane, but if getting dirt under your fingernails sends you running then maybe look elsewhere.

I also need someone that I can have meaningful conversations with. Having interests in the Sciences would be a plus but if not, then helping me broaden my horizons is always a good thing :)

I do a fair bit of hiking and gym, and so I expect you to take similar care of yourself. I don't necessarily have an ideal, but I do believe in chemistry (I am a biologist after all) so if, after the first few dates, we don't feel anything special for each other then no hard feelings.

I'm not interested in a quick fling but rather something deeper, more meaningful. I want to spend time getting to know you, finding out your goals, your desires (and best of all your zany little quirks) and so come to appreciate you for who you are. If you know what I'm getting at then perhaps we're on the same wave length and should try meeting up.
