Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Greetings! Welcome to the small section of the internet devoted to
my attempts to appear respectable enough for human
I am a nerdy, cheerful guy with an infectious laugh and a sense of
humour carefully balanced between sarcasm and what I like to refer
to as 'enthusiastic nonsense'.
I like to overuse exclamation marks! And I will happily talk your
ear off about any number of subjects, so long as you return the
favour from time to time!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have just completed my Masters degree in virology, technically
making me KindestSurprise: Master of Science, a character strangely
missing from the current Marvel lineup. I am currently filling out
application forms for a living, and am pursuing some interesting
opportunities, exciting times!
I am also working part time to make sure I have enough money to go
climbing, save for the future and buy you your favourite wine at
unexpected intervals (I am also working on my optimism).
Other than that catching up with old friends when I can, playing
the occasional computer game and wrestling with the dogs! One day
victory will be mine...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Microbiology! So if you need any tubes tested or Bunsens burned, I
am your man!
I started climbing while doing my Masters, and while I wouldn't say
I'm good at it, I do enjoy it a lot! I've not had the chance to go
in recent months, so if anyone fancies a trip to Broadstairs or
London for the purpose of going up and down a wall repeatedly, let
I always enjoy a good chat, and while 'being funny' is a bold thing
to claim to be good at I have received good reviews in the
Finally, and most obviously, online dating profiles. But that
should be apparent by now. (I did warn you about the sarcasm!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a tall, often laughing curly-haired man with a voice that can
apparently pass straight through walls and other obstacles: that is
probably the first thing people notice!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm a bit of a jack of all trades with this sort of thing really,
I'll try everything at least once!
My favourite type of music is probably electronic (with the electro
swing being my current obsession), but I also enjoy anything from
classic rock to Lana Del Ray, although the latter is more of a
guilty pleasure and I'd rather not talk about it! I am on a
rock/metal binge at the moment, ranging from the White Stripes to
InFlames, with all the fantastic stuff in between!
My favourite food is Lasagna and the best pudding is clearly Baked
Alaska (Actually, I think it is currently being edged out by warmed
up peanut butter on ice cream), but anything tasty is more than
good enough for me! I firmly follow the 'cook several things you
enjoy together and see how it goes' approach to cooking but fear
not: I am currently trying my hand at Asian cooking when I get the
chance, so if you ask nicely you may get treated to some sushi, dim
sum or stir fry.
For books I am definitely a fantasy man, give me wizardry and
adventures any day! Favourites at the moment are 'The Name of the
Wind' (basically the best book ever), 'the Demon Cycle' and
'Malazan: the book of the fallen' (Only to be read if you are some
kind of literary masochist). I also powered through all but the
latest book of the 'Rivers of London' series and can definitely
recommend it to others!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A plan for the future,
A climbing harness,
Cliché replies to OKCupid questions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The important things I should be doing! Or obsessing over my
current favourite book/game/film/root vegetable.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, or if possible trying new ales in a pub with good company!
I enjoy trying new things, so whatever comes up really.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have played far too much Skyrim, and being willing to talk about
computer games instantly puts you into my good books: it's my

I would love to hear from you if you are a girl who isn't afraid to
stick up for yourself! The ability to talk for embarrassingly large
amounts of time about things that interest you is also definitely a
plus, it is always a pleasure to talk to someone who is passionate
