Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Occasional raconteur. Full-time Francophile. Too sports and
ale-orientated to be a much of catch, but partially mitigated by
the fact that I am able to read and do so fairly extensively, so am
able to do a passable impression of being a well-rounded human
being. Added bonus of not being a dickhead.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Planning a possible sabbatical to France, possibly followed by
moving to a house so that I can get some cats. Plotting my next
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'd like to say boxing, but I was rubbish so stopped.
Pound-for-pound I'm a pretty good drinker. Probably not something
to boast about really, but there we go. Oh yeah, remembering things
I'm really good at. Except when I've been drinking. Then I'm
terrible. To be clear, I'm not an alcoholic. I'm also pretty keen

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

sorted out any other features, I'm going to go for that. And rather
than this being an arrogant boast, it's most definitely quantity
over quality! As you can see from one of my photos, I've got a bit
of a wonky tooth, so hardly a BBC smile...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
French films and TV unsurprisingly. Iain Banks. Jonathan Rendall.
Irvine Welsh. Thomas Hauser. Jon Ronson. Japanese and Lebanese food
are pretty high on the agenda. Most music. Except for rubbish.
Obviously. Carol Brown is one of the best songs ever written. Not
because it reflects my own personal experience. Rather it's just a
work of genius and very catchy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A book in my coat pocket
My iPod in my coat pocket
A razor - bald on top with a ponytail isn't a good look
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At the moment, whether Bristol West can be the next Green seat in
parliament and whether the loathsome UKIPs are in some way good if
they stop the equally loathsome Dave and Gideon subjecting us to
another 5 years of austerity. Of course we'll still get austerity
light under the only marginally better Labour, but it's the little
