Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Been living in Leamington for nearly five years and have finally
hit the age where I can't drink as much as I used to, function on 6
hours of sleep a night or work through a hangover anymore. These
days I actually prefer the idea of staying in and watching a film
over crazy mad nights out on the town. That said, I still try to do
it every once in a while, just to remind myself that I can't drink
like I used to or deal with the hangovers anymore.
I enjoy cooking but hate cooking for one so on the rare occasion
that I do cook it's normally an event to behold. I have to clean
the kitchen fully before I start and then once that's done I've
normally lost enthusiasm and so just stick a pizza in the oven
instead. Some people consider me to be an alright cook whilst
others have actually tasted my cooking :)
I love to meet new people but these days, due to my job and the
evils of enforced overtime I haven't met anybody new in a good few
months. Hopefully, sites like this one will help on that
I'm sure there's alot more I could say here, like
I think that I'm very open minded but I still can't see the point
of football or golf, I like all kinds of music provided it has a
tune and I've even been known to read a book every now and
Well, enough for now, drop me a line and I'm sure I can find some
random film quote to send to you and if you're really lucky, I may
even come up with a witty and intelligent reply as well!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For the last few years I've been working as a computer programmer
but for the previous 5 years or so I was a research fellow
researching robot mediated therapy.
I'm also trying to learn a foreign language (failing), take up a
sport (failing), fix a few things around the house (failing) as
well as trying to learn how to make websites (I've got as far as
buying a book).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not doing the DIY.
Cleaning the Kitchen when I plan to cook.
Making a mess in the kitchen when I'm cooking.
Sleeping in on the weekends (although I'm not quite as good as this
as I used to be).
Convincing the people I work with that I'm actually really good at
my job (it helps that nobody else understands what I actually
Apparently, I'm also pretty good with computers (although it's not
something that I admit to in public)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favourite books? Have to be science fiction
, or maybe even
crime thrillers (John Grisham) or spy novels (Tom Clancy). Will
pretty much read anything though.
Favourite movies? Easy, the ones with easy to understand story
lines and lots of big explosions! Typical hollywood trash really.
That said, La Vita e Bella is one of my favourtie movies.
Favourite music? Either Jazz
(Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong or
pretty much anything else from that era) or Orchestral (both the
Classical (e.g. Beethoven) to the modern (David Arnold and other
film score composers)), depending on what mood I'm in when I wake
Favourite food? If I'm cooking then anything that I can put in the
oven and forget about although I have recently fallen in love with
Tacos. If I'm not cooking then probably would have to say either
Italian or Chinese.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends of course!
A decent cooker (well decent oven atleast).
A decent bar of soap (you'll be surprised how hard it is to find a
decent bar of soap these days!)
My computer and the internet (well how else will I get to chat to
all you lovely people?)
I used to have Coca Cola on here but I've finally managed to stop
drinking it and now I just find it's really sweet and syrupy.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to put in the corner of my garden.
How to fix the problem I've been having at work (well, I do spend a
lot of time at work after all).
What I'm going to have for dinner.
I used to spend a lot of time thinking about writing my thesis but
now that I finished it I spend a lot of time thinking about what I
can do with all this free time I now have.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the sofa watching a film, or dozing through friday night tv.
Saturday night is the usual night for going out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Deep down, I am actually a geek (although I try to hide it as much
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to take me out shopping! Or need somebody to try out new
recipes with. Or fancy going out for a drink. Or need someone to go
to the cinema with. Or are bored and have nothing better to do. Or
you want to get to know me.
