Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First and foremost, I chose my user name because it is the name of
my favourite rose! As for me; I am a professional person working in
the IT industry. I like to think of myself as easy going, with a
sense of humour, and I enjoy a bit of banter with my friends. I
love books and films, quizzes (where my fount of useless
information sometimes comes in handy!), and being with friends on
walks or at dinner. I do like a glass of wine in the evening,
although I am no wine buff. I used to be an active Tennis and
Badminton player, but recent ill health (nothing serious, just
frustrating) has curtailed these activities although I am now
looking to start playing sport again. I am looking for someone to
share my social life with; theatre, cinema, travel, walking etc.
and someone who doesn't mind listening when I need someone to talk
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Whatever it is, it isn't "filling out questionnaires"! The more
questions I answer the more "less"es I get. Lets be clear - I am
fairly organised, I AM adventurous, (I used to ski black runs and
off piste, I raced formula ford when I was younger, I used to
windsurf - cracked a rib on my honeymoon - how romantic!) I used to
play loads of sport but ill health (not serious, just annoying) has
left me less able to do these things, so this year I am going
cross-country skiing and snow shoeing, and my next "thing" is to
walk across the Millenium Dome (not massively exciting but hey, it
is there). I have an ambition to walk to the top of Kilimanjaro,
and see Machu Pichu... I am seriously thinking of deleting some of
my answers to get rod of that so called "personality" - now if only
I were really good at working out how that Staff Robot thinks...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
No idea, I have never asked and no-one has ever mentioned anything
other than I apparently have a passing resemblance to Wendy Craig!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently I have spent a lot of time thinking about what I can write
in the section!! However I guess I think most about when and how I
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Glad it is the weekend!!!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to start an email conversation with a view to seeing how
that goes before perhaps meeting up. Also it would be useful if you
lived in and around London as opposed to the US....??? (Why am I
getting emails from the US?) I am not looking for the email
equivalent of a pen pal I'm afraid!
