Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm all about about cooking without recipes, traveling to new
places, and figuring out how things work. For better or worse, I
have some MacGyver in me, but don't worry, I don't often find
myself in situations where bombs need defusing (just that one
My main driver is adventure. Whether that's an afternoon wandering
through a part of town I haven't been to before, a weekend climbing
the fjords in Norway, or a week sipping wine on the Napoli
coastline, I like to take the road less traveled.
If you're passionate about something in your life, we may be a good
match. I'm looking for that special person with charming
spontaneity and an uncompromising joie de vivre that matches my
I have an amazing circle of friends and hopefully you, too, have a
life that is rich in friendship. You should know that while I can
be shy in the beginning, I warm up quickly once I get to know you
and am a fierce friend to the end.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Staying calm, thinking fast, and working hard.
Unfortunately, I'm also really good at misplacing my keys. :S
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My unusual accent. Good luck trying to place it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: I have a very eclectic taste in music. I'll
listen to anything from Beethoven to Tupac.
Books: On the off chance anyone's heard of it, my
favourite book of all time is This Is Where I Leave You, a
piece of pure comedic genius by Jonathan Tropper. Sadly, most of
what I read these days is work-related.
Films: I like Christopher Nolan's films,
especially The Prestige and Inception. I think
Liam Neeson did a good job with Taken (although not the
sequel) and Unknown.
TV Shows: I don't have much time for television
any more, but I'm irrationally fond of the show How I Met Your
Food: I like to cook, and I'm open to trying most
things, except Ethiopian food. Sorry Ethiopia, it's not you, it's

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a typical Friday night. I could be out with friends,
scrubbed in for surgery, or working on a play.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
This is how I describe most of the girls I date:
Educated and street smart, she is open to new things. She hasn't
decided whether London is where she wants to live for the rest of
her life, but she loves it here. She laughs a lot.
She has good friends and prefers discussing ideas and events rather
than people. She has a passion. Travelling is a must.
Has similar interests but can show me something new. Considers
herself a challenge.
So before this turns into an Elton John song, if you think the
above describes you, or if you're just really fucking cool, you
should message me.
