Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a bit of a geek - I work in IT and I like to unwind by playing
video or board games or reading the internet. I'm a movie buff who
enjoys good movies and terrible movies equally (for different
reasons). I enjoy intelligent conversation with intelligent people,
and goofing around with goofy people. Often these are the same
I'm a regular gym-goer, I enjoy the outdoors and I'm interested in
doing more hiking, tramping and geocaching. I'm also interested in
travelling, but it isn't much fun by myself, so I'm keen to meet
someone who wants to share some international adventures!
I'm also looking for someone who likes to explore Wellington,
especially the food scene. A perfect night out for me is a nice
dinner (at the new hotness or an old favorite) followed by a movie
or show. Or anything involving margaritas.
I'm looking for a committed, long-term relationship, but that
doesn't mean things have to be super serious from day one. Start by
just having a fun time together, then see what develops.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in IT as a software developer in the financial sector. My
hobbies including gaming (all kinds - video, role-playing, board,
card), watching films, and exploring Wellington's food scene.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking up new things. Remembering trivial information.
Understanding both sides of an argument. Remembering the names of
those actors where everyone goes 'hey it's that guy/girl!'.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair (yes, it's naturally that colour).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I'm not a huge fiction reader, but I like sci-fi/fantasy
mostly, along with 'airport' fiction like Lee Child et al.
Movies - I'm a movie nut, I'll watch pretty much anything. I love
smart blockbusters; The Dark Knight is probably my favorite
Hollywood film. But I also dig indie films (when they aren't too
pretentious). Anything with good writing and good acting is a
must-watch for me regardless of the subject matter.
Shows (going to assume this means TV rather than Broadway ;) - Like
movies, I watch and enjoy a wide range of TV. Recent favorites
include Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica,
Homeland, Archer, Fringe, and heaps more. At the moment I am
binging through Arrow, which is suprisingly good, though silly at
Music - I like anything with a good beat to it and some depth. NIN,
Tool, Skrillex, Daft Punk, Beastie Boys, and more traditional stuff
like Radiohead, U2, Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, the list goes
Food - I will try anything once, and there isn't much I don't like
(though I'm not a huge fan of seafood, generally speaking). Some
favorites: pasta, curries, pretty much any Asian cuisine
(especially Japanese and Thai). Also love to tuck into a burger and
fries every now and then.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The Internet, hot showers, games, movies, wine, conversation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! I always want to know more about whatever I'm doing or
plan to be doing. Knowledge is power. I spend a lot of time online
just reading about all kinds of things, even things that aren't
remotely relevant to my day-to-day life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having a drink with my workmates then either catching up with
friends, or having a quiet night in watching TV shows or playing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk to myself a lot. I'm not crazy though, honest!
