Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Barry, a 35 year old South East Londoner. Friends tell me that
I am a laid back, intelligent, honest and very down to earth guy
possessing a dry and unpredictable sense of humour. Sarcasm being a
In my spare time I like to watch DVDs, shoot some pool, play poker,
restaurants, pubs, cocktail bars, sing karaoke.
Myers Briggs : ISTJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my current role I'm a trade analyst for a major mobile phone
retailer, basically an Excel whizkid that summarises raw data into
bitesize bits of information relating to demographics, upsell,
attach rates, etc. It sounds boring but I do love my job!
I tend to alternate my weekends relaxing indoors with nights out
with friends and trying to find the time to take up new hobbies, at
the moment I'm supposed to be learning electric guitar and haven't
got around to it yet.
I've also started playing Badminton recently in order to get my
fitness up again as I've been pretty slack for the last couple of
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh, being observant, remembering small details,
lateral thinking, building/fixing PC's, texas hold'em, chess,
football, pool, karaoke, Schwarzeneggar impersonations.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I was never a particularly avid reader, but I have recently
bought myself a Kindle and reading a fair few classic sci-fi novels
at the moment.
Just finished The Running Man by Richard Bachman (Stephen Kings
pseudonym), which was almost completely different to the film.
Currently reading through the Demon Princes series by Jack
Films: I tend to enjoy watching comedies and action thrillers,
anything enjoyable and original. I also love films that really make
you think afterwards and spark discussions with friends like
Requiem for a Dream or Donnie Darko. I'm also partial to really
shite movies, including and not limited to Jesus Christ Vampire
Hunter, Surf Nazis Must Die, Hobo With A Shotgun, Big Tits Zombie,
TV: I don't watch much TV, when I do I'll scour the channels for
comedies or documentaries first then unwittingly settle on You've
Been Framed/Top Gear repeats on Dave. TV shows I have really got
into recently are Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead
Music wise, I do have a fondness for the 80's though none are on my
iPod (I'm not silly!), I prefer rock/indie. Not too heavy, but I
like my music upbeat. Check out Baddies-Tiger Face, Miles
Kane-Inhaler or Findlay-Off and On to get an idea :)
When it comes to food, I'll try most things but I don't like
seafood (fish is fine)
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.
What I could write here that would amaze people and show them what
an absolutely, bloody fantastic bloke I am!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually in the pub after work for a well deserved pint with
colleagues, then sometimes out for a meal/trendy bar with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to play videogames, as trivial as that sounds, it actually
seems to be quite a revelation on this dating website and frowned
