Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here is me. A guy. I have two arms, two legs, one head, and the
various other appendages associated with my sex. I have likes. I
have dislikes. Beyond that you will have to decide for
But anyway, enough about me. I want to know about you. I want to
know your hopes and dreams, your aspirations. Your loves and
losses. Pets and pet peeves. Best friends and arch-enemies.
Ideally, I'm looking for someone to point out my faults with a
smile. Maybe watch the odd movie with me and complain that the main
actress looks too thin to be attractive. And also, if possible,
laugh at my jokes in that
kind of way. But mainly I want to meet someone who knows what she
wants and since you are on this site that's a pretty good start.
See, I like you already!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing some shop work right now (hey it pays the bills) but looking
into starting a PGCE course so I can teach English A-Level.
Hopefully by this time the psychopaths from secondary school have
been weeded out.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, always been able to do that. Giving advice
(only when asked), listening to people’s woes. Writing poetry and
short stories. Debating, cooking, playing poker, playing computer
games (I’m a natural geek). I've also just taken up Life-drawing.
Completely new to it but I have found I have some talent for it.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1: My laptop
2: My car
3: Whatever computer console I happen to be playing at the

People not included here. I don't count people as 'things'.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of stuff most people don't think about. For example, everyone
on this site keeps talking about surviving zombie apocalypses.
However, I think that since most people in coffins are buried in
suits, the zombie apocalypse would be a very formal affair.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who knows? Don’t exactly live my nights by a plan. Not exactly a
big clubber but I do like spending time with friends, movies,
bowling. Whatever is happening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There is nothing about me that I am not willing to share. I don't
know if this makes me boring or not. I'm sure I have a few
scandalous secrets that are so secretive I have forgotten. If not
I'm sure we could come up with some together.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think Queen is hands down the best band ever to come out of
this green and pleasant land of ours. And if you DON'T agree with
that then instead message me a challenge to that statement.
Also, since I'm frugal I don't have A-list so while I like getting
'likes' messages are much more practical since I will be able to
actually see you.
