Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been told that i'm the weirdest girl on here...not sure if
that's a compliment. Just to clarify, I'm not (hopefully). Although
through reading some of your reactions to other profiles, I'm
thinking I might be not representing 'dem females properly as I
have no pictures of me kissing puppies, dressed as a sexy cat at
halloween, eating cupcakes, or jumping in countryside/on beach. Nor
am I into vintage stuff (for vintage, read second hand and over
priced). What am I thinking? Don't worry, I'll schedule in a life
I've got my own mind, and am happy to express it (although not in a
shouty/bossy way, more in the make a joke out of everything,
especially you if you say something silly way).
I'm an outgoing gal who likes verbal stimulation, mostly in the
form of dry and often childishly irreverent humour, sarcastic wit
and expects significant other to indulge in said activity. I won't
hang off your arm and expect you to keep me entertained in social
situations, I'll charm your mother, have a laugh with your mates
and befriend your cat.
So hi, I'm Sarah.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When i'm not training dolphins (you've all heard that story in a
pub, well, that's me), I work in school improvement and hospitals.

out until 6am, spending all my money on snowboarding trips,

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Things of note are that i'll probably forget your name, then only
realise i've forgotten it when i'm too far into the conversation to
ask it again...so spend the rest of the conversation trying to work
out how we can broach 'the name' topic again. It is quite a hard
topic to broach a second time...
I'm also good at making conversation based on the barest wisp of
information, this conversation may take quite a tangent, but it
will be based on something. So, if i send you a message that you
think is slightly obscure, I guarantee it will have been based on
something from your profile, I may have just taken it further in a
slightly unusual direction. Or maybe just to it's logical
conclusion...no, I haven't got a clue what i'm talking about here
either...lets move on.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pack of polos (sugar free, not for the lack of calories, but
because of the smoother texture. A veritable minty delight)
2. an arsenal of horrific corporate buzzwords to sprinkle into
conversations with a straight face - shifting paradigms, glass
ceilings, blue sky thinking, they're all welcome with me.
3. no exclamation marks -trying to do a double negative. I COULD do
without exclamation marks, they are unnecessary and I have an
inherent distrust of anyone who feels they need to use more than
4. Ellipsis... - it's the mother of all imagination
5. Inappropriate sarcasm (raised wry eyebrow is optional, but
6. Ending stories with the phrase "and then I found a fiver" just
to make sure that people are really listening.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is this site my 'soft launch' of internet dating before I start
getting serious about it and paying for Guardian Soulmates?
Whether I can look myself in the mirror since referring to "getting
serious about dating" in a public forum.
And whether guys actually 'get' my profile? Obviously it's just a
load of tosh that I wrote on a hangover, you get that right...?
On a typical Friday night I am

just down the pub with my mates. For a change..
