Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Manda from Chesterfield.
I'm eaygoing and carefree, the kind of person who can't be rushed
I enjoy trying to cook, walking my dog in the Derbyshire
countryside, and reading. One of my greatest passions though is
I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, either quiet
nights in, or nights out- but now more likely in a pub, than on the
I would like to think I am honest, trustworthy, very caring, and a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently working as a supply Primary school teacher, but
considering leaving the profession in favour of something more
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Teaching, listening, random music knowledge, calming down a
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lets go for the obvious... my height! It's pretty safe to say I'm
not the tallest, but prefer to be called 'petite'.
Other than that, I can be quiet initially but that more depends on

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Mrs Dalloway, The Da Vinci Code, The Hunger Games, Cloud
Atlas, Toast, to name but a few.
Movies: most things, but do not enjoy gory or stupid horror films
such as Saw.
TV: Silent Witness or anything similar, usual soaps, Big Bang
Food: I like most things, but not things that come pickled in a
jar. Chinese is probably favourite food to eat out, closely
followed by good pub food, or Italian.
Music: I have a very wide taste, and probably have the most varied
and extensive music collection of anyone you would like to meet. I
have recently started to build up a selection of my favourites on
vinyl. For me, music is more about the whole sensory experience
than just sound, and vinyl certainly allows for that. I can listen
to most things, however my favourites are the Oldies: Dusty
Springfield, Otis Redding, The Coasters, The Ronettes, Motown,
Judee Sill, Laura Nyro etc etc. I like a lot of new artists, but
most are people you will never have heard of. I can't stand Dance /
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ipod, internet, friends, family, Iphone, food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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?
It varies... Mainly on the sofa, wine in hand, chilling after a
long week. Sometimes having girly nights in or out.
