Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Henry, pretty laid back person, talkative and
I'm a University graduate, I studied Modern Languages and was lucky
to spend 6 months living in Tokyo. Studying Japanese has prepared
me very well for any stressful environment and as a result I come
across as very relaxed!
I am often described as intellectual but I'm not usually one to
appropriate such a term for myself, I'll happily let people think
that about me though!!
I have pretty quirky sense of humour but I love to laugh and to
make people laugh, sometimes I'm really good at it too! Other times
I have to just laugh at myself after making an inexcusably terrible
Been feeling that my life is slightly lacking in spontaneity. I
wish to rectify this...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Graduated from Uni in Newcastle a year ago and still say I 'just
graduated' because it still feels like yesterday, started a job in
Customer Care for a pharmaceuticals company. I essentially make
sure nothing goes wrong and it can feel like babysitting the
companies or at least their purchasers! The jump from Full time
education to full time employment has been a disconcerting
Lamenting the ruination of my body clock... Since when is 9am a lie
Aside from working I spend a lot of time with friends, and family
when I can. Still finding my feet in post-graduation life and my
busy schedule has left little time to meet new people, hence why I
I have discovered an ambitious streak I never knew I had and am
hoping it is possible to do the corporate ladder without stabbing
people in the back to get there. I'm always keen to learn new
things and acquire new skills, being bored is the worst possible
outcome for any endeavour...
Over capitalising Nouns due to speaking too much German...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking, discussing and getting on with people, words are important
and I genuinely believe most problems can be solved with them.

Oh also I have very good memory which is especially suited to
Also, although I will never claim to be a 'good' dancer but let it
not be said that I didn't dance...
Saving failed attempts at humour with sarcastic self
Not wearing suncream then getting burnt like an idiot, forgetting
it happened and by the next uear sayong with complete honesty "I
don't really burn" and then declining suncream...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I won't lie, I'm pretty loud. Quite talkative which people either
like or don't!
Oh yeah and I'm pretty well spoken which people seem to comment
And my surname is Prestige, people seem to enjoy that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: everything! I'm a definite food lover!
Books: Pretty open to most thing, probably most enjoyed the Song of
Ice and Fire series most recently (that's Game of Thrones, also
love the TV show). Favourite stand alone books include: The Stand,
Dracula, Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, Oryx and
Crake. I'm sure I could think of more...
Movies: Nothing too heavy, films are usually something I go to for
light entertainment, the arty/emotional stuff is great but most of
the time I just want to laugh! That said a friend just reminded me
of a film called 'Ink' which I think is kinda indie and is one of
the best films I ever saw.
Music: Recently getting interested in Electronic/House music. I
won't profess to any real knowledge, but enjoy stuff by Nicky
Romero, Zedd, Knife Party, Swedish House Mafia, Deadmau5, that sort
I'm pretty open minded... I do harbour a not so secret love for Amy
Shows: Very open to most things, I enjoy crime dramas, fantasy,
sci-fi, comedy, pretty much anything! To name examples: Game of
Thrones, Bones, Parks and Rec, 30 Rock, Community, HIMYM, the list
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, Food (not in the obvious sense), friends, distraction,
TEA (yes that makes 7!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly I think about a lot of things, a lot of the time. To claim
that I spend a lot of time thinking about one thing would be a bare
A good friend once said to me "your mind must be a terrifying
place" I chose to take that as a compliment...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wishing I was out but my friends are totally lame and bail all the
Not making excuses, I'm usually chilling at home after the week at
work and Saturday/Sunday is when I do fun things.
That said I also wish I spent more Friday nights out!
An evening spent in a cocktail bar in intense/lively conversation
is considered an event incredibly well spent!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I will take any excuse to dress up, whether fancy-dress or fancy
dress (read 'suits')
