Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a nice chap who likes the company of nice people. I've been
blessed with a sharp mind that I try to keep in good shape, but I
also let it meander a lot. I can gladly partake in long
intellectual conversations, but I'm just as happy talking about
daft silly stuff or cats too, should that be more up your
I'm a sci-fi and fantasy geek, but not one of the scary types that
lets that define who they are and everything they care about. It's
just something I enjoy.
"Science, it works bitches!" is an awesome phrase I agree with.
That says a lot about me, I think.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
By day I build and work with complex databases. I enjoy my job and
I'm good at it, but I don't talk about work outside of work very
much because it's really not all that interesting to other
I currently game quite a lot when I get home from work, mostly
social online games with friends in various places not close enough
to get to quickly. At weekends I prefer to get out and catch up
with friends face to face as often as I can though. Gaming is fun
and all, by this real life thing definitely has the edge.
I also occasionally enjoy board gaming with friends (good games
like Settlers, Dixit, etc - you wont find a copy of Monopoly in my
flat). Gaming is my biggest hobby at present, and I'll always want
to spend some time doing it. I'd happily do it less if I had the
right sort of distraction though ;)
I'd love to travel way more than I have. Again, I prefer to do that
sort of thing with someone special, which is the main reason I'm
not doing much of that right now!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being nice. Being there for friends. Solving problems and offering
I've yet to meet a cat that hasn't liked me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depends who they are. Hopefully at work I come accross as a
talented genius! Socially? I have no idea.
Under the right circumstances people tend to notice that I can eat
a rather impressive quantity of cake. It's a superpower I
inherrited from my mother.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As I don't commute at present I don't read anywhere near as much as
I used to. The pile of books next to me contains George R. R.
Martin, Terry Goodkind, Terry Pratchett (twice), Richard Dawkins,
Lawrence Krauss, a book on professional poker, and a sudoku book.
Make of that what you will.
I'll give almost any film a go, and my favourites list tends to
change a lot. Generally sci-fi and fantasy films score well with
me, and comedies. I confess to being partial to a good romcom too.
Anything by Pixar is great.
Recently I'be been watching House of Cards, Archer, Dr Who, Family
Guy, and random things on Netflix.
Music is a bit of a wide one. I'll listen to all sorts, and don't
really have a favourite genre. Recently I've mostly been listening
to Hammock and M83, which are post rock and electro respectively. I
also like a splash of classic rock, metal, various soundtracks and
musicals, folk, and even the odd bit of classical. I've yet to find
an opera that I like, nor much country, but you never know, there
could be some out there!
I love japanese food, and cake of almost any variety.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My ability to reason.
2. My friends and family.
3. My PC and/or laptop - gaming, staying connected with people,
watching stuff. So many uses.
6. More cake. I'm not even joking.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe, and how amazing it is. The future. The distant past
(really distant; what was it like when dinosaurs were walking
around? Or even before.)
I am fascinated by cosmology and evolution, and often find myself
pondering the fate of our little planet and the people on it. We
live in a pretty amazing place.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing and/or chatting online with some of my best friends. Always
ready and willing to head out and do something face to face though.
Fridays are presently more of a post-work chill occasion for me,
although I'd happily change that.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
OK, a real one that not many of my friends even know; I own the BBC
Pride and Prejudice TV series on DVD, and tend to watch it when I'm
