Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a man of eclectic tastes with a contradictory nature. I am
equally happy staying indoors to read or travelling and visiting
exotic locations. I have a science background but can also enjoy
the wonders of the world on an aesthetic and esoteric level. I have
one of those balanced minds that can be creative or logical
dependant on the situation.
I would like to consider myself intelligent and worldly wise with a
pretty good general knowledge from my range of life experiences.
Partly I would say from being fairly well travelled (especially
across the US, even having studied Marine Biology over there)
however it has been a few years since I was abroad and there are
still a lot of places I would like to visit.
I have a great fascination for the natural world and the study of
cultures and mythology and would have loved to have been an
archaeologist, Egyptologist or US Park Ranger (alas I wasn’t born
in the states). I think this is where my appreciation for art and
architecture stemmed from, with a preference of old or gothic, and
therefore I love museums. I even ran a small gallery in my last
job. UPDATE 10/9 - off to Italy in a week to finally see some of
that history, art and culture I have always wanted to see!!
I wouldnt call myself a dreamer per se but I am creative and
therefore I do like gaming as a hobby as this fulfils my
imagination quota whilst satisfying my logic. But I am a bit of a
perfectionist hence the reason it has taken me so long to write my
I used to be more adventurous doing rock climbing, scuba diving
(certified), swimming, orienteering, qui gong, archery,
paintballing and clay pigeon shooting. These days it has pretty
much reduced to swimming or the gym but I am looking for that spark
back and maybe just need someone to share it with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
A few changes last year (no not a sex change) gave me a new lease
on life. I must have been in a rut for the last few years so a
change of job and accommodation broke me out of that and hence I am
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastinating… after all, it took me weeks to write this
Rambling… the written kind not country walking.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My total lack of fashion sense! No, not really but I am certainly
not a slave to fashion.
I like to think the first thing people notice is that I don't look
my age. Cant quite tell if this is true anymore but I certainly
don't act it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a wide taste in movies, music and food. I don’t read as much
these days but sci-fi or fantasy are my preferred choices. Some of
my favourites include HP Lovecraft, Jack Vance and Raymond E
I like most music ranging from soft metal/rock to house to
classical to country, though I am selective about R&B, Rap and
anything too heavy. I have to say that the 80’s were my informative
years and this is still my favourite era but I like to keep abreast
of current music and do have a decent amount of recent tunes in my
ipod though many are obscure. It is ironic that I like house club
music as I cant dance for toffee! My country tastes are a throwback
from spending time in the US.
I do like my US TV series, in particular comedies (The Big Bang
Theory), sci-fi (Supernatural) and crime (Castle, NCIS) to name a
few. I am more flexible with my movie viewing and watch most genres
(favourites films include Bladerunner, Dune, Princess Bride and 50
I do like food and have tasted many cuisines over the years and my
obscure list would probably match something like the bush tucker
trials of Get Me Out of Here, including brains, alligator, ostrich
and squid rings, but to be honest I am happy with a good roast beef
dinner with Yorkshire pudding!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A mug of tea
Something to write with/on (although these days I use the voice
recorder on my phone)
My memory…”Ive seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack
ships off the shores of Orion”… no wait, that’s not me!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
In between what every man thinks of every 6 seconds I think about
my next mug of tea, logistical nightmares at work and the latest
song playing through my brain over and over.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Contemplating the meaning of life, the universe and everything.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmmm either that I like rom-coms or that I've been to a nudist
beach. Cant decide!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are artsy, geeky, scientific, adventurous or pretty much any
background. But if you don't like tea then all bets are off !
(Don't worry that's not a deal breaker.)
