Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm training to be an architect, just about come to terms with my
return to South London (did you know there are places where being
on the top deck of a bus isn't an excuse for a fight?), and
generally being a sorta adult. I graduated three years ago, worked
for abit, and now I'm back at uni to continue my course.
These paragraph things never give an amazingly good impression of a
person, so I'll just list a few things I like, if you like them too
then message me and we can chat and see where that leads (I'm a
traditionalist, deep down).
So I like:
Architecture, Music, Concept Art, Design, History, Politics,
Planes, Dogs, Climbing, Books, Films, Art, Buildings, Machines,
Mechanisms, Science Fiction, Cyberpunk, Ale, Zombie Survival
Strategies, Football... I'm sure there's some more too, but that'll
do for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently in university as a postgraduate, and working part
time. I am studying Architecture, working my way along the marathon
course 7 year course to become an architect. I go to a very good
school of Architecture in London, and for those who know anything
about the course, I am doing my 'Part 2', so currently on year
I work part time in an Architecture and Design firm as a designer
to bring in abit of cash, it's been abit of a shock going back to
uni to be honest, I sort of miss work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a good designer and artist, and a competent and articulate
public speaker. I excel at anything that requires imagination and
creativity, be it with images, models, words or simply ideas.
I am also quite good at model making, painting, drawing and
Hate to sound like I am blowing my own trumpet too much, so I best
note I am diabolically bad at anything musical or involving foreign
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure, I've been told I have slightly unique fashion sense,
and I have quite a cynical and cutting, occasionally innuendo based
sense of humour.
Have to ask others though I guess.
They'll also notice that I'm a geek in fairly short order, but they
hopefully notice I am quite 'cool' for a geek, so I'm happy with
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books wise I love Cyberpunk and SciFi literature, so Philip K Dick,
William Gibson, Iain M Banks. I also read a number of 'classic'
novels, and particulary like Dracula. P.G Wodehouse, Sue Townsend
and Bernard Cornwall are also favourites for light reading,
alongside a range of factual books. I usually have 4/5 books on the
go at once...
I have a large collection of films, again cyberpunk features
predominantly, including Blade Runner, Scanner Darkly and Minority
Report. I love clever comedy, the odd TV series and cheesy war
films, alongside the ubiquiteous Fight Club etc. Special mention to
The Wire, The Unit, Peep Show and Inbetweeners for giving me faith
in TV to produce something other than X Factor and Deal or No
Deal... Also liking True Blood, Game of Thrones and The Walking
Dead at the moment.
I like a range of music, generally punk, rock and metal, although I
have a soft spot for 90s/00s pop (The sort of stuff that I might
hate if it was released nowadays) because that's what I grew up
Bands wise I love Green Day, The Clash, Rancid, Bad Religion.
Within Temptation, Sex Pistols, Blink 182, Bowling For Soup,
Paramore, Nine Inch Nails and Avenged Sevenfold to name but a
And food... I love rare steaks, pizza, stir fry and chips and gravy
(That's the northerner in me:D). I love expensive food, but am
equally happy with a decent pizza or pub grub from a nice
traditional pub, usually washed down with a good bitter, since I
don't drink lager.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. iPhone - That's pretty sad but I really do love it.
2. MacBook Pro - I do all my work on it, I browse the net, watch
films... Pretty vital to me really.
3. Pencil and Paper - I'm forever sketching, making notes and
4. My leather jackets.
5. My iPod/Walkman - South London is so much more bareable when
blocking out the depressing conversations of its inhabitants on
6. Books - I can't choose a particular one, but I love reading.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Architecture, Art and Life... I like to challenge my own points of
view and let everything I do and see contribute to my philosophies
Politics is another big one. I have an opinion on most
I am also in my own world alot of the time, thinking about concepts
and ideas for little projects I'm working on, concept art, or
indeed projects I most likely will never work on, but would like
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I usually go out Wednesdays and Saturdays if I am going out, so
Friday is the end of a long week, either chatting on skype with
friends or watching a film. If I do go out Friday, its usually a
meal, I am not one for the club scene in my home town, some of the
clubs are so bad you can probabally get an STD just by looking at
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If I post it on the internet, it's not really private is it?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to chat to me because you like the look of my profile. I
am a pretty nice and talkative person, I like getting to know
people and chatting.
Don't message me if...
- You are going to say 'how r u' - I can barely tolerate 'txt spk'
in texts, don't use it in messages to me when you have access to a
full keyboard. Never spell 'time' as 'tym' - it leads me to believe
I am being contacted by a particulary hurried amoeba.
- You live in Thailand/Vietnam/Dubai/Phillipines... You get my
drift - we are unlikely ever to meet and I don't want to marry
you/send you money. Nothing against people from those countries by
any means, but not interested in penpals or scam artists.
