Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**My last relationship was with an emotionally abusive partner in a
long term relationship, so let's start as friends. Then if
something blooms, great. :)**
I’m emotional, over analytical, brutally honest to those that can
take it, too caring for my own good and cynical as hell about the
world. I love being chivalrous as it makes me happy and thanks to
empathy that’s off the charts, can’t not help a friend in
My mind is always processing and analysing everything. This means I
have thought long and hard about all, which has made me very
cynical about the world. It also means I can debate both sides of
any argument, seeing both sides.
I adore dark humour and can be quite dark myself. The more
horrifying and intelligent it is the better. Or Dad jokes... I will
throw them up all day long!
I’m very open, honest and genuine about everything, and will answer
ANY questions and discuss ANYTHING happily. I expect the same from
a partner/friend. If you are loud mouthed, overly opinionated,
brutally honest and don’t get offended easily, then we’ll get along
like a house on fire and will of course shout you the first
I consider myself a very active lazy person. I swing dance most
nights, attend and host boardgame nights, love visiting my
favourite café on a Saturday morning and get out to do things far
more than you’d expect your usual video gamer to.
Yes, I’m a gamer. I adore games, the stories they tell, the
feelings they elicit and the competitiveness I can get out of them.
If I can explore the galaxy and fight off hoards of zombies with
you, you gain immediate major points. If not, that’s not all me, so
don't stress. It probably doesn’t help my argument that I love
dressing up (and starting to try cosplay), and will do it any
chance I get… If there’s a costume party on, I’m in!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Other than working? Does this need to be deeply
I'm always trying to improve my dancing, grow my DJ setlists and
teach myself piano... how's that?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, video games
, board games
, riding, poker
... umm am I meant to just list
here? :), joking, listening
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can do better, I can even tell you what they say first... "Wow,

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How would I survive a zombie apocalypse? If I were sucked in to
this book/movie/game/tv show, how would I go? Imagining performing
whatever I happen to be listening to? Can I make a dad joke out of
what he/she just said? How does one obtain an evil lair and
How the brain works. Analyzing everything that has happened so far

different parts of my dreams the night before

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually out dancing, at swordcraft, playing MTG or hosting/joining
a boardgames night :)
Or just catching up on the Oculus Demos that came out over the week

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like what you've read and are here to meet people in person,
not just chat. Have a bit of a competitive streak, can talk about
ANYTHING (no topic off limits. seriously, if you're easily
offended, then we probably won't work). If you're a gamer, then
I'd like my partner to be strong willed, opinionated, empathetic
and my best friend as well... also able to hold their own with a
nerf gun and fire back insults would be great too.
The most important thing I need out of a relationship is
understanding. I need my partner to truly understand who I am and
be capable of recognising the subtle as well as the obvious.
There's nothing lonelier than being with someone you completely
understand, but who doesn't know you.
