Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like being active and doing lots and lots of things. I'm a big
fan and train as often as I can. I also play squash
here and there. I'm an outdoors-y
person and have done a lot of hiking
I got a pair of roller blades recently. It's a LOT of fun. I might
have zoomed by you in Battersea Park without realising it. I just
need a classic Walkman to listen to while I blade and I'll look
like a true 90s douche.
And I get excited about things that most people would probably
think aren't that exciting, like Big Ben reading 11:11 on the 11th
November 2011. That was an amazing day and I'm sad that it can
never happen again.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an ex-physicist, but I still occasionally long for the days
when I got to put things in liquid nitrogen and then see what
happens when you drop them. However, I'm now happy doing lawyer-y
things in the city.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Writing lists
- karate (I used to compete a lot)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My best friend once told me that I have a very distinctive 'bouncy'
walk when I'm in good mood. So...if I'm quite happy then you might
see me...sort of...bounce? I guess?

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- A good book to read. I read a fair amount, and I love my
- My phone charger. My phone is excellent and very useful, but it
would be useless without a charged battery.
- My karate Gi. I couldn't train if I had nothing to wear...

- Tasty wine. I'm really into wine. A fine Meursault makes me very
- Tomatoes. They're great for eating, putting on other food that
you're eating, and throwing (La Tomatina was epic).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...this is a very difficult question. There's a lot of things I
spend time thinking a lot about so trying to pin one particular
thing down isn't easy. I'm a thinker/planner so there's usually a
lot going through my head at once.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

ramble about the most recent kickstarter project I'm following.
Also, you might fancy meeting up for a coffee or other beverage
sometime. This is a dating website after all.
