Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Film graduate. Been living in London for a few years, now I'm back
in my home town, bored out of my skull and looking for someone to
hang out with and do cool stuff. Make some music, short movies,
write, play videogames, or just bum around town with. That sort of
I play bass, have been for a few years, and like taking old
guitars, cleaning them up and restoring them to their former
I'm trying to get out to see more live music. There's something
appealing about standing in a sweaty room, drinking overpriced beer
and self inflicting hearing damage.
Occasionally I work on proper feature films, doing glamorous things
such as politely telling tourists to go away. It's become a
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Using the vast amount of free time being a film graduate allows to
broaden my world view by doing things I've never done before,
either because they scared me or I'd never got round to it.
For example, going to Newcastle for a long weekend because I'd only
ever been that far north once and that was to catch a ferry. Or
flying to New York on my own for a week just to see if I could and
the going to see a few Broadway plays while I was out there.
Aside from that, trying to break into the film business right at
the bottom, learning new skills and beginning the journey towards
grizzled media cynic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Retaining useless facts and forgetting important things e.g. names,
passwords, where I'm meant to be on a day-to-day basis, etc.
Cooking. Better at baking cakes and biscuits rather than main
meals, but I have perfected the cheats cottage pie.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The hair, probably. People on the street mistake me for a girl ALL
THE TIME. I'm used to it by now, it's been happening since I was a
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Great Gatsby, Philip
Marlowe stories, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Currently
reading Cloud Atlas, Fahrenheit 451 and a book called No Saints of
Angels somebody on Twitter recommended.
Movies: Being a film student, that's a difficult question. Most
things from John Woo to Singing in the Rain. Ponderous naval gazing
is all very well and good, but watching a car explode as it flies
through the air is always fun. Lord of the Rings (extended cuts),
all of Marvel's cinematic universe (including the Ed Norton
Incredible Hulk), Gladiator, Highlander, Casablanca. I'm a big fan
of early silent and slapstick movies; Buster Keaton, Chaplin,
Laurel & Hardy, Roscoe Arbuckle, etc.
Shows: Lost, Breaking Bad, Battlestar Galactica, House of Cards,
Black Books, Spaced, Game of Thrones. Anything that I can watch in
one huge chunk.
Music: Franz Ferdinand, XTC, Talking Heads, Ladytron, St Vincent,
Maximo Park, Elvis Costello.
Food: Greasy take-away pizza, late night burgers, curry.
Alternatively, a pot of tea and something cake based.
Videogames: I'll tag these on because I like them too. Anything
with a character creator you can spend hours in when you'll hardly
ever be looking at your avatar. And short downloadable games with
cool ideas that don't outstay their welcome.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Glasses (not that blind, but they help when reading signs)
2. Regular snacks
3. Human contact
4. Movies that are charming in their stupidity
6. A steady wifi/3G signal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Perfectly normal things that I shouldn't worry about as much as I
do, until I wind myself up and end up in a right mess...
Er, that and what it would be like to be a spy in everyday
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I live in the middle of nowhere, so avoiding drunken farmers and
thinking about how utterly shit countryside public transpotation
that stops running at 6:30 in the evening is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once dressed as a girl on a school ski trip for a Blind Date
I'm not afraid to say that I looked fantastic.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You appreciate the absurd. You can find enjoyment in the the
stupid, the base, the crass side of movies.
You enjoy both wandering around town aimlessly and sitting in quiet
cafes people watching while eating pastries and cake.
