Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello there! I have one guiding philosophy in life: When faced with
two decisions, choose the path that will give you the best
I like words and the complexities of the English language. I have a
passion for cinema - celluloid pulses through my veins.
I am an introvert at heart, but surround me with compelling
personalities and I will open up. My popularity on the Internet far
exceeds my popularity in 'real life'.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Creating memories; slaving away at an office job that has nothing
to do with my journalism degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people laugh (or so I'm told), writing, telling stories,
Scrabble, impersonating people and being a compendium of warped
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am quiet and reserved—a 'wallflower', if you will. If I were
wearing a rainbow-coloured necktie, they would notice that, but
since I don't wear such ties, my introversion will have to do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
* The Catcher in the Rye
* High Fidelity
* American Psycho
* The Perks of Being a Wallflower
* The Virgin Suicides
* The Picture of Dorian Gray
Movies: I'm a huge film buff, but at the same time, my tastes are
very specific. I mainly like drama, comedy, thriller and horror
films. I'm not that keen on spectacular blockbusters. My favourite
film is American Beauty. Favourite directors include
Ingmar Bergman, Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, and
Michael Haneke. Despite my self-proclaimed status as a cinephile, I
am not averse to watching trashy slasher films from the 80s or
* Six Feet Under
* The Simpsons
* Freaks and Geeks
* The Inbetweeners
* Fawlty Towers
* Louis Theroux documentaries
* The Office (US)
* Parks and Recreation
* The occasional game show
Music: Good lyrics are VERY important to me. My favourite band is
Crowded House. Other favourite artists include Elton John, The
Beatles, Paul Dempsey/Something for Kate, Radiohead, and The
Food: Look, as long as you're okay with pineapple on pizza...we'll
get along just fine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
* The written word. It's so wondrous that I can give life to words
via pen and paper or through speech.
* Conversation and the exchange of ideas
* My laptop
* My home - I spend more time here than anywhere else. It's not
that big, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in
* Pets - I can't fathom living in a home without animal companions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Some would call me neurotic or pedantic, and they'd be fairly
accurate. I like things to run smoothly and pride myself on my
organisational skills (hope I'm not sounding like some drone on
LinkedIn). I think of very random, innocuous things such as the
location of a particular candy wrapper I threw in the bin ten years
ago. Where is it now? Also, I wonder how many people are doing a
particular thing at the same time (e.g. how many people are filling
out their OKCupid profiles right now?). I also fear death, which is
stupid because there's nothing I can do to alter the inevitability
of it. I am fascinated by the history of library books and wonder
whose hands they have touched before mine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a bar with work friends. I'm fairly new to the "drinking
culture", and it's not as scary as I thought it would be during my
years a Friday night-recluse.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wet the bed until I was, like, 12. I promise I don't do it
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
* You nodded your head and/or smiled while reading most of what is
* You can introduce me to the best coffee/burger/pizza in
* You can string a coherent sentence together and refrain from
typing "lyk dis."
* You're ambivalent about messaging me, because you may as well
find out what I'm like. No online profile, no matter how elaborate,
is an appropriate substitute for a face-to-face meeting of the
