Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having composed witty, thoughtful and clever introductory emails
that don't even elicit a polite "no thanks" (it's OK - I'm a big
boy and can take rejection) I'm going to wait to hear from you -
yes you - rather than the other way round. I can't see who "likes"
me, so just drop me a line - it's far simpler and straight to the
point! Please also do read the profile - even just the shortened
version - it should really help decide if I'm for you and vice
Short version for those who get bored by long profiles:
Mostly normal, clever but sarky bloke with 2 secondary school age
children (with 50/50 shared care - I'm far from a weekend dad)
seeks someone to get to know. Much prefer someone local so
can make the most of free time, but reasonable travel is not out of
the question. Red wine and cheese addicts get extra points.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am successful, professional, articulate and intelligent. I also
have the sense of humour of a teenager and hope to find someone who
shares my worldview.
I'm divorced with 2 gorgeous children, and I share time with them
equally with their mother. However, I do have “me” time, and would
love to find someone to share it with.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being a great Dad.
Surprising people who think I should have grown out of things.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk. A lot. It’s part of my job and how I am. I am sarcastic
without being rude (unless you really really deserve it) and I have
an opinion on lots of things.
If I'm not talking, then there's a glitch in the matrix.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Cartoons, comics and games aside, I do have grown up love for
Private Eye, QI, Have I Got News For You, anything from Charlie
Brooker, Sopranos, Game of Thrones and other “big” series/stories,
and quite often have my nose in a book without drawings. I have an
inbuilt cynicism where mainstream media/news is concerned, to the
consternation of my friend at BBC News 24.
Reddit is the future.
My Ipod, when not being stuffed full of humorous podcasts (Answer
Me This or the sadly departed Adam and Joe) will astound if placed
on shuffle. You will get used to a change up from System of a Down,
through Charles Aznavour, Goldfrapp, Dirty Vegas and everything in
Films have to be pretty epic to get me to go to the cinema these
days, and usually end up involving the destruction of the
I'm a season ticket holder at Stamford Bridge, and going to see
Chelsea is one of my "me time" perks. I've had it for a good few
years now, and don't intend giving it up anytime soon.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

You think are able to keep up with me, because the rewards are
worth it. I’m extremely honest, and somewhat old fashioned about
certain things. You’re going to need to have a sense of humour

Can you challenge me?
Being realistic, I do think that distance can be a challenge in
getting together with someone (especially if they also have
childcare commitments) as I would like to be able to meet up for
coffee or lunch ad hoc rather than spending loads of time
travelling. I also have one eye on the future for a long term
relationship, and with 2 children who have just started secondary
school, it's unlikely I'll be re-locating any time soon.....
