Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People tend to refer to me as 'that fucking hippie'. They're not
I'm quiet, shy, spiritual, and gentle. I'm a firm believer in our
basic goodness, and in the power of the human mind to do great
things. I'd do anything for my friends. I love dogs. I like to
greet the full moon on top of a hill with a group of like-minded
souls. I'm either a lovely person or a ridiculous New Age cliche -
(I also have a couple of good degrees and a successful career in
advertising behind me, but that kind of ruins the effect.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as a caregiver and training with St John - eventual
game plan is to become a paramedic. I hope one day to spend my time
saving people's lives.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analysing texts and making cheesecake.

My Scottish accent and my terrier-like nerviness
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: At the moment I'm gorging myself on the Song of Ice and Fire
series, which totally lives up to all the hype. Also Alice in
Wonderland/Through the Looking Glass, the Gormenghast trilogy, A
Clockwork Orange, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and too many others

Movies: Harold and Maude, Gregory's Girl, Boy, Dr Strangelove, The
Rocky Horror Picture Show, Cabaret, Pulp Fiction, The Big Lebowski
(etc etc etc)
Shows: Dark comedy like Jam, Human Remains, The League of Gentlemen
etc - Also shameless trash like Bridezillas.
Music: Folk mostly; big fan of Simon and Garfunkel and Joan Baez.
Of Monsters and Men are rocking my world right now. I also have to
mention the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band - I worship the ground that the
mad genius Vivian Stanshall walked on.
Food: I was vegan for a few years and vegetarian for a lot of
years. I'm now an omnivore but still prefer mostly vegetarian food.
I especially love Thai food. My vices (and I have a lot, which is
why I'm a fatty) are mostly at the savoury rather than the sweet
end of the scale. A hunk of good bread with fresh butter and I'm
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dogs, books, my yoga mat, my friends, martinis, hot baths
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future - I've never been very good at living for the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading a good book, in the company of a hot water bottle and some
cheap white wine, and blissfully happy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've admitted I talk to the moon. If you want me to go more
embarrassing than that, you'll have to message me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have something to say. Seriously, enough of the messages that
say 'hi' and nothing else, from people who haven't bothered to fill
in their profile.
Other than that, I'm open to all kinds - if you think we might get
on, you're probably right.
