Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m better looking than John Prescott; slimmer than John Goodman;
and even more manly than Julian Clary.
Not got your pulse racing?
OK, lets add, I’m both younger and taller than: George Clooney,
Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and in the same school year as Daniel
Never mind, keep reading, it might get better …
Having worked with homeless and also having lived and lectured on a
luxury cruise-liner, I’m confident relating to be people from a
huge variety of cultures and from a wide range of social
backgrounds. People seem at ease in my company and I can fit in at
just about any social situation.
I love travelling and I’ve visited over 100 different countries and
every continent, including Antarctica (four years living on a
cruise-liner tends to make things like this easier). There are
still plenty of other places I’d like to see, but I've always found
travelling far more satisfying if you have someone to share the
experiences and create memories with.
When at home, you’ll find me in a country pub joking and swapping
friendly banter with my friends and generally laughing and grinning
like the Cheshire Cat. I also really enjoy a weekend break to “olde
worlde” cities, country towns (I love the lake district), coastal
resorts (I also love the sea) or simply visiting old friends.
I’m reasonably well educated and once went through a phase of
collecting qualifications (I have three degrees - which proves that
I really am exceptionally inntelligan ... erm .. intteliggen ...
erm ... brainy). I still like to read popular science books and
watch documentaries, particularly about physics and
I’m not a massive sports fan, but will watch any televised
Liverpool football match; oh, and during the olympics, I developed
an inexplicable fascination with beach volleyball.
I don’t tend to go clubbing as much as I used to, but I can still
strut my “funky stuff” on the dance floor. After a bit of
Dutch-Courage, I can sometimes be persuaded to have a go at karaoke
(and after a lot of Dutch-Courage I can sometimes be persuaded to
Above all, I hate to see anyone I care about needlessly upset and
will go out of my way to comfort them and offer whatever help I
can. I’m extremely lucky to know many people who have proven that
they’ll do the same for me.
PS: I only said it might get better.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a very Junior, Senior Manager in a small team responsible for
over £2,000,000,000 in annual budgets.
You'll be shocked to discover, the more Senior, Senior Managers
still utterly refuse to lend me the odd million no matter how
nicely I ask! Didn't anyone tell them how nice it is to share?
They're obviously just really, really selfish, and I just don't
know how I put up with them :(
On the plus side, its nice to know I play a small part in saving
literally (and I mean "literally") thousands of lives each year.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Helping my friends whenever and in whatever way I can.
Singing (and ignoring all the pitifully deluded people who don't
think I can - sadly there's quite a lot of the poor souls).
Making people laugh (sometimes people even laugh with me, rather
that at me - granted not often, but sometimes).
Pub quizzes (especially when there's lots of questions that I know
the answer to).

~ My witty sense of humour,
~ My generosity,
~ My eagerness to help whenever I can.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My family and friends (it would great to have a "special" friend
2) My passport, weekends & holidays (even more so if I had
someone to share them with),
3) Books (I love losing myself in a good book),
4) My computer, the internet, and my phone,
5) The seaside. All together now! "Oh i do like to be beside the
... What? Oh alright then, suit yourself",
6) Country Pubs (with gardens in the summer, roaring open fires in
the winter, and great beer all year round).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights vary between, going out, staying in, seeing old
friends, and enjoying the occasional weekend break.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I appear to be allergic to sad films. Its true - my eyes prickle,
my nose gets sniffly, my lower lip wobbles and I get a lump in my
throat. Obviously the cause of this reaction is a complete mystery
to medical science because I'm clearly far too heroic, brave, macho
and manly to start blubbing like a little girl at a film!
