Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not a brilliant author. I can try to give you an insight by
typing down the synopsis to my life, and hope that the twenty lines
I choose are enough to catch your interest. I applaud my friends
who are true wordsmiths, weaving sentences that capture hearts with
only a few chosen words. I will try my best here, but my
personality comes out in a better way if you send me a message, and
we have a chat.
In case you only want to see who I am, I recommend you start
I'm a 22 year old economics student who lives in Espoo together
with my dog, a Japanese Chin. Tiny dog. Useless for anything but
company. I love him to bits.
I am a Swedish speaking Fin, which naturally means I have to study
at Hanken, and I'm active within the student organization. Before
coming back to Finland, I studied a year in Aberystwyth, Wales. I
currently work as a Somellier (sell champagne and wine) on the side
of my studies.
To keep my shape from wandering off to the bad side of the fruit
spectrum (Apple, Pear, Squash), I play handball. When I'm not doing
that or spending time with friends, I'll probably play a computer
game. (for the curious ones: Dota2, Starcraft 2, Torchlight 2,
Civilization5 have been on rotation during the past two
I'm currently looking for short-term dating, but I've noticed that
the brilliant things in life start when you stop looking. In case I
find someone truly special here, I won't be saying no.
My name is Jan.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now? I am enjoying it. I study, I play handball, I go on
walks with my dog, I meet up with friends and either go to parties,
or sit in and drink whiskey and play mario kart.
In the future? I'm going to get a good job, get overly confident,
start my own company, have a mid-life crisis, buy a boat I can't
afford and conveniently forget that I never learnt how to sail.
It's going to be absolutely brilliant.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am well educated. I enjoy learning, and I'm interested in
economics, physics, chemistry and biology. I'm not an expert in any
of these things, but know enough to keep up in a
I am also above decent at cooking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't know. First thing? Probably that I am really blonde
and have blue eyes.
If they hear me before they see me, it's probably the fact that I
have no issue in talking with strangers. Strangers are brilliant.
We're more than five million people in Finland, and I've probably
talked to under five thousand. Just friends waiting to happen.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I had an incredibly stereotypical answer here, and I am really
trying to figure out how to answer without making it sound like I
am trying to get into everyone's collective pants.
1) I tried living without pets. Didn't seem like fun. I like
2) A computer, I mean come on. I wouldn't be here without it. You
wouldn't be reading this without a computer. I'll just lump a smart
phone in here to make it easier.
3) Friends. Twice in my life I've been in bigger trouble mentally.
We all have, some more than twice. Without my closest group of
friends I would be less of a man.
4) Entertainment. Be it computer games, music, a good movie or an
evening out with friends. Life without entertainment in moderation
is no life at all.
5) Books. I really like reading. Nothing better than sitting on the
pier during the summer with a good book to read and a beverage of
6) I won't force the issue here. I thought of five, I think that's
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on whether or not I have an exam the next day. If I do,
I'll most likely do some last minute studying, if I don't, I'll
either be out partying or spending time at home enjoying a quiet
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ask me personally and I'll happily tell! This is hard question to
answer. I could say something about how this profile was originally
created in a drunk state, and edited sober, but that wouldn't be
I could also talk about how I had my heart broken once (it got
better), but that would be dating suicide.
Or then I could tell you the story about how I got a 5 cm long scar
on my stomach, but the premise is much cooler than the story.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested. No, really. If you think that the man behind
the profile is worth getting to know, send me a message.
It would be a bonus if you have an interest in the same things I
do, but that's not a must. I'm sure we can find some common ground.
