Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Dave. I'm sensitive, caring and friendly, but a bit shy at
first. I'm sometimes outspoken and I have strong opinions. I enjoy
a good debate, especially about politics. As long as you don't have
to resort to smears and slurs to respond to my points, that is. I'm
affectionate, generous and supportive, if a little direct in my
I enjoy writing
trips to the theatre
and art galleries
and spending time with
friends. Interests include history
, especially military history and
the middle ages, the dark ages and the classical period. I love
, historical fiction
thriller novels and films. My pet hate is inaccurate historical
fiction. Drives me up the wall. It's not hard to get it right and
nothing is served by getting it wrong.
I love cooking
I'm learning to cook new dishes all the time.
I am kind, caring, and sensitive
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a commis chef and applying to the church for stipendary
ministry. Yes, you read that right.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing stories and spouting random facts. I'm also fairly handy
with a pencil, but badly out of practice. Someone special told me
I'm good at cuddles and, er, other things. I make no boasts about
the accuracy of that statement, apart from the bit about cuddles.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, apparently. Certainly not my beard, I had to remind
someone I have one not so long ago.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends, this damned PC (I love it and hate it at the same
time), my sword collection (display only of course), books, my
writing and intelligent conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My stories. Always getting stuck... and my new girlfriend!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the PC, watching telly or (most likely) at work. Being a chef is
great but the hours are a pain sometimes.
