Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Matt. A quiet, thoughtful guy who is looking for someone
with similar interests to spend time together with.
I tend to prefer quiet nights in, watching a few movies, or playing
a couple of games. Or just relaxing with friends, rather than wild
Although I am always open to trying new things, and have found
myself enjoying activities like white-water-rafting, which may have
awoken the adrenalin seeker in me (Hoping to go skydiving later
If there is something I feel that people should know about me, its
that I am a bit of a geek, and have a great interest in comics,
anime, manga and so on.
Because of this. its a dream of mine to one day go to japan, and
see its culture and the history it has to offer.
I tend to be a little quiet at first due to my timid nature, but
I'm sure once you get to know me, I'll be happy to chat away.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment, I work in IT Support for a High School, I've worked
with computers for as long as I can remember, and working in a
school really helps me deal with my anxiety issues.
In my spare time, I like to write. I've been working on a couple of
novels since the start of the year, progress is currently slow, but
I'd like to think I have some good ideas for them.
Occasionally, I like to think of places I'd like to travel to, I
travel around the country a number of times throughout the year for
conventions and to see friends, but I never go away to relax, so I
like to think of places I want to see, both here and aboard.
I'm also working on trying to make myself somewhat healthier, due
to stress and some depression, I put on more weight then I like, so
I am currently trying to loose some extra pounds.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a very good listener. I like to listen to other people speak
and tell their stories.
I also tend to be a jack of all trades at times. While most of my
skills have been built around computers, I can sometimes surprise
myself with the other things I've found I'm good at.
And while I've only just started getting into it, I'd like to think
I'm not too bad at baking.

I prefer superhero and comedy movies above anything else, but can
happily watch most genres. Some favourite choices at the moment
include; The Avengers, The Dark Knight Trilogy, Howls Moving Castle
and Now You See Me.
I also cant get enough of Disney at the moment, been watching a lot
of them recently, almost reliving my childhood.
I tend to be quite behind when it comes to TV, I enjoy shows like
the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, but never seem to watch them
when they first come out, I usually wait until the Blu-Ray/DVD
comes out, or its released on Netflix.
That said, some favourite TV shows at the moment are Big Bang
Theory, Futurama, The IT Crowd, NCIS and Scrubs.
I have something of an eclectic taste when it comes to music. I
listen to, and have some preferred artists in most music genres.
But Punk/Rock is my musical preference, particularly bands like Bon
Jovi, Fall Out Buy and Foo Fighters.
Some other artists I like include Charlie Simpson, Dave McPhearson,
Gabrielle Aplin, Jessie J and Pink.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either with friends or relaxing at home. In both cases, generally
chilling out watching movies or playing games, but occasionally
getting caught up in a good book when I have some time to myself.
