My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Seeker of adventures, lover of life, most likely to be found at a gig or wandering the streets (in an exploratory rather than a vagranty way), or in a courtroom. Self-employed stenographer, dedicated flaneuse, I can and do spend hours bumming around the place having a good old nose at what's going on. Pathologically incapable of doing nothing. I am passionate and enthusiastic about the books, films, music and people I love.

Left-leaning liberal. Atheist. Feminist. Londonist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Stuff I like - NB. travel etc is a given:
Leisurely train journeys, although I couldn't cope with commuting.
Inclement weather. But also lazy sunny days. Crisp, bright, autumn mornings.
Long, rambling conversations.
Going to the cinema in the afternoon.
Eating out, esp. in Soho.
Noise bands, experimental, improv music in teeny and/or scuzzy venues.
Swimming, but only outdoors, preferably in winter (when the lido is less busy).
Art galleries and museums - I like these better when there are fewer people there (as with most things).

Having had a few work trips to various Nordic countries in the past couple of years I am fairly sure I could settle in Iceland or Denmark quite happily. Yes, I know, I've watched too many Danish crime dramas and Dogme movies, but dammit I want in on that brooding scenery, the Fair Isle knits, Mikkeller beer and Louis Poulsen lighting.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening. Corny jokes. I bake a mean brownie.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm quite smiley and I make terrible puns.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Radio 4
My iPhone (sorry)
Sensible shoes
Current reading matter
ATP Festivals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What my desert island discs and my luxury item would be. Words, grammar, sentence structure, purely in the context of work rather than in a pedantic way.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no such thing as a typical Friday night! Generally it is ale-fuelled. Or spent in a darkened room of some description.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
There are seven types of gin in my booze cupboard.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are Louis C.K. Or Tim Key. Funny does it for me over looks every time.

You want to try something new and interesting. Not in a rude way. Although that could happen given time and plenty of yoga.

Basically I want to meet someone who has a positive outlook on life, a wide range of interests, is not afraid of trying new things and would generally choose a day/night out and about rather than on the sofa. Although pottering around the kitchen and reading novels in bed now and then is totally acceptable.

Or just an exchange of bon mots over some really excellent beer/cocktails/coffee.
