Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Mark and I live and work in Cheshire.
I like to think of myself as having a good sense of humour, being
loyal to friends and family, generous and intelligent.
My interests include watching TV/films, reading comics and other
fiction novels, playing computer games, listening to music and
visiting the gym. Socially I am laidback and can sometimes be a
little bit shy on first meeting but at other times can be the life
and soul of the party.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having graduated from the London School of Economics in the field
of International Relations I am currently working as a Customer
Relationship Contact for a National Financial Institution. This
involves looking after high value corporate customers and I pride
myself on a job well done. Whilst it is not the biggest challenge
in the world, nobody gets off the phone to me without being
Having started a fitness regime last year, I am currently spending
a lot of time in the gym and doing fitness classes. At the moment I
do pilates, yoga, Tai Chi, circuit training, resistance training
and power cardio. Oh and also step aerobics and legs bums and
tums....You may not view these as manly pursuits but, all I can say
is, don't knock it until you try it!
I can be very driven and determined once I set my mind on a goal
and am looking for someone like minded who may be looking for a bit
of adventure and companionship along the way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have an excellent memory for general knowledge, am a master of
the dark art of sarcasm and bawdy humour, have a quick wit and can
definitely hold my own in any conversation.
I personally also think I’m really good at dancing when drunk but
to be fair I don't think anyone thinks they are BAD at dancing when
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am pretty tall at 6 ft 1 with very dark hair, albeit with
encroaching natural, distinguished highlights....Ok, I am going
slightly grey. I may have a beard, I may not, it depends on hor
sartorially elegant I am feeling at the time and whether I am going
for the bond villain look.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
; pulp fantasy such as David Eddings
etc; V by
is good as is Catch 22
(not by Pynchon obviously). I
love comics from the acceptable literature stuff such as The Sandman
the heroes-I prefer DC to those who might care!
B) My favourite films are Royal Tenenbaums
, Spirited Away
. I love
films and Wes Anderson
but also like
and Alexander Payne
seem to have something to say about the male condition such as
strike a chord but I also like more obvious comedies
such as Dodgeball
C) Until recently I hadn't listened tomusic for a long time-I have
a large and varied collection but have just never been in the mood
until I got an I-Pod and started loading music onto it. I now
remember how much a song can take you back to earlier events in
your life and, pretentious I know, in some way reconnect with them.
In terms of taste is I vary from modern Brit Rock such as Bloc Party
doom metal like Isis
. I also have a somewhat excessive amount of what I
like to call widdly indie acousto-electro wank like Sufjan Stevens,
Bon Iver etc as well as the old favourites like Joy Division and
D) I love a variety of styles of food, mainly Italian, Indian and
Chinese food along with the usual English Cuisine and will try most
things once with the exception of fish or mushrooms
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1)TV-sad I know but shows like Peep Show, Family Guy, Mighty Boosh
make life worth living.
2) My car-I am not a car person but I can't believe I lived without
one as the level of freedom that you can attain is
3)Wikipedia because sometimes you just have to know
4)My friends and family
5)The belief in my infinite potential I COULD be fitter, richer,
more successful and prettier whenever I choose but choose not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At university I spent a lot of time thinking about complex
interactions between International societal structures. I like to
think that I could still do this if I wished to but in my current
life I am mostly thinking about food, TV and other modern
concerns/interests. Although I do find it interesting to enter into
verbal byplay with my colleagues and friends on whatever topics
arise and enjoy debating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking in the pub, at a friends or family members house, watching
TV or on the internet.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My first album was Aladdin the soundtrack and I am obsessed with
the Lion King...
