Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm seeing someone now!
For those wondering what they've missed out on, here are a few ...
* Looked more like an axe murderer in the flesh, actually.
* I was astounded to hear his tales of crocheting a scarf whilst
abseiling down the Matterhorn. I believed him, but it wasn't daring
enough for me.
* This obsession with castles can't be natural...
* Being literate doesn't turn me on, sorry.
* I just wanted to eat him! When I told him this, he ran away
* He looked very much like his photos, which was a bit of a turn
* Gracious! Perhaps not.
* Just ... why did he wear *that* shirt? With *those* shoes?
*Quickmatch likers - look out for Shimmywiggle. Yes, I agree -
could have been more masculine as name choices go...*
You're now looking at the profile of someone who managed to get a
whoopee cushion into the board room minutes. This can be backed
I'd classify myself as a 'multi-disciplinary nerd lite' - I'm as
happy wandering around a castle (22 in 2013) or ancient site as I
am with my face in a computer. Amongst other things, I'm learning
coding at work to become a developer of some sort, if I'm
successful, so I'm occasionally indulging in perpetrating coding
It's worth noting that I'm rather awkward at this whole dating
lark, so you'll be in likeminded company there.
Oh, and I don't dance except when on the receiving end of bullets.
Knees aren't in great shape, sad to say.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
So, things I'm doing. Getting out more, hitting the cinema pretty
often, visiting castles for giggles and fridge magnets, and sorting
out my work/life balance. I'm at the point where I want to see more
of the world and the people there. The main thing I'm doing on here
is looking for someone to be with on a long term basis.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Good at? Overworking, actually. Multiskilling at work. Solving
problems. Managing online communities. Written communication.
Occasionally acerbic comments.
Also, I tend to be involved in generating odd tales when on
holiday. I once was asked for my autograph on the Prague
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably the beard and male pattern baldness. Also very likely it's
my reticence until I figure out what I can say to someone without
offending them. I'm somewhat portly, but that's going to disappear
in due course.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Branching out a bit these days. Used to be more SF/Fantasy than
anything else, but books and movies etc are reasonably eclectic for
me. If it interests me, I'll read/watch it.
Music - I tend to like specific songs rather than artists or
genres. Very mixed on that. I've got to be able to work out what
words they're singing, though. Lots of random 80s tracks -
currently listening to T'Pau right now.
Food - I've always liked something savoury or spicy. Love a decent
curry and every so often I try to learn a new food creation skill,
such as halfway decent bread. I'm a weekday vegetarian, so I tend
to try and be inventive.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pen, watch, Internet connection, reliable car, fiscal security,
roguish sense of humour.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Does wholegrain mustard count as one of your five a day?
Would dating sites cease to exist if people didn't like 'long walks
in the countryside'?
Just started to wonder why I've begun to get adverts for other
dating websites on here. I was just staring in disbelief at one
aimed at lesbians. Tempting, but I failed the physical.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually watching a film or binging on a series on my home cinema,
or out at the real thing, or once a month I'm usually at a comedy
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a lack of concern about mixing whites and coloured in a wash
and own several pink T-shirts that used to be blue.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you feel like sitting in a café or similar whilst we awkwardly
try to work out what to say and wonder why we both agreed to this
and ponder signalling our strategically placed friends to phone us
with an emergency, and maybe wander off to sit in a dark room
staring at a cinema screen instead of each other, then my inbox is
Other than that, i've got two real dealbreakers - smoking is
something I can't stand; it's not you, it's the habit. The other is
strong religious faith - I can't compete with that, and I couldn't
join in (not too serious is fine).
Hopefully I'm just saving time by saying those.
