Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, my names Mark and I am just your average bloke, I like
sleeping and every now and again I get dressed up for a night on
the town. I like alternative music, comedy and tend to prefer quiet
nights in watching films or TV than going out to clubs etc.
Oh and I am also interested in science fiction films, shows and
books but I try not to make it a hindrance in my day to day life.
However I cannot hold a conversation about sport to save my life so
if you are looking for someone to accompany you to Old Trafford or
wherever Manchester City Play (I want to say Main Road) I am afraid
you will have to pop along.
Well I guess that's me, I am a good listener although I tend not to
add much to a conversation unless it is needed, I love hearing
other people talk. I like to think of myself as intelligent and
cultured but only so long as I don't have to back that up by going
to museums and the theatre all that often. I am also honest to a
fault as is by now painfully clear.
I am a cat lover with my own brood of 6 spayed and neutered little
darlings, so I hope you are not allergic :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am currently working full time for a large Railway Maintenance
Company as a Planning Assistant. I am really happy where I am at
the moment and can't wait to see where my career takes me in the
next few years.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a fool of myself, usually after a beer.
Heh. I am a little bit obsessive when it comes to the things I like
doing and watching regularly and so I am good at quoting from
books, films and TV Shows I enjoy to watch. I personally do not
think of myself as too geeky but I can certainly see how other
people might think it and good luck to them I say!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am quite tall and broadshouldered, people tend to notice that, I
am a big guy. They also seem to take my general demeanour for
grumpy when nothing can be further from the truth, I just have
trouble opening up to people I do not know and I am not at my most
comfortable in crowds. I love nothing more than getting to know new
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Who I am, where I would like to be, who I would like to be with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
