What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Below is a general checklist of what I plan to do with my life
(recent past and the next few years)...
1) Quit my city job. Done (this was comparatively easy).
2) Spend a number of months in South America and learn Spanish.
3) Buy a flat. Done (note: it's no palace).
4) Start a successful business. Work-in-progress (I've won awards
and raised seed funding - patent pending. Far from successful, but
5) Record a full-length solo album. I've written the songs; need
time arranging and recording. Give me 12 more months.
6) Write a novel. For a few years now I've wanted to write about
the same topic. I'd like to chronicle/novelise the lives of the
great Christian saints, but from a non-religious perspective, to
recognise the radical historical figures they were (i.e. some of
the greatest scientist/philosophers in history), but taken away
from their contemporary religious zeitgeist (note - I'm not
religious, but I'm interested in theology). This is taking a back
seat to 4 and 5, but at some point in the next 3 years, I will move
to Italy for 6 months and immerse myself.
There's a lot more to say.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Fixing things. Songwriting and music (and music tech). Writing.
Being a versatile conversationalist. I'm becoming more proficient
I'm a willing learner in the fields of architecture, cooking and
design, so extra points if you can teach me about those.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In terms of appearance, I'm not really sure. I'm definitely more
leather-jacket-and-stubble than ironed-shirt-and-chinos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love in the Time of cholera by GG Marquez is my all-time favourite
I have a slight obsession with Leonard Cohen. And maybe Elliott
I love reading and music, and enjoy films, but I don't really think
its important if someone else likes different ones, so I've not put
a massive list.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People who understand things
Books that contain knowledge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I should really be doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends, probably Shoreditch/Dalston/Peckham.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Once, whilst on the phone, I absent-mindedly put the kettle on the
hot hob rather than the kettle plinth, and it melted and stank of
smoky plastic... Oops

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If I ask you "what would you like to do"/"where would you like to
go", one could answer:
1) "I don't mind"/"you decide"
This is cool - 90% of people say this, and it's nice that you're
chilled out. I expect this for the first 2/3 dates or so.
2) "I usually go to this particular pub - let's go there"
This is good - I like assertive people - they are usually more fun
to bounce off and converse with.
3) "Do you like oysters? If so, let's go watch live blues music
until 3am, go to Billingsgate market, eat oysters until one of us
throws up and buy live lobsters to keep in the bath until we give
them their freedom in Regent's canal the next morning"
YES! NOW WE'RE TALKING!
