Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Howdy people, I'm Gareth. I'll be honest, this is all a little
daunting, but I shall endeavour to get this done, legible and easy
to read. In summary, I'm a tall, hairy chap who likes playing
guitar and being a nerd. That'll do.
As you can surmise from my pictures, I don't take myself too
seriously (until it's important) and enjoy fun in most of its
forms. I aspire to one day windmill headbang until I end up with
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach guitar, I hang out with friends, working at forming a
decent band (but not getting the band I want XD). Also currently
deciding on going back to Uni. With the economy in the state it is,
I'm thinking it may be a smart move.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Uh, playing guitar! I've been playing it 12 years, I'm fairly
decent on it and I'm happy to play anything from Cannibal Corpse to
Stevie Wonder. I'm pretty good at being a nerd too, I like sci-fi
and fantasy things, wargaming etc. I'm probably not doing myself
any favours, but oh well. I've just started a blog exploring the
exploits of a friend and I as we work our way into the world of
jazz - you can find us on Facebook at
, and we have one of
those Tumblr doohickeys -

it'll probably give you scant minutes of amusement.
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Is there a word limit here? Books - I love to read, and am
currently working my way through 'Fatherland' by Robert Harris.
Films - I like all kinds of films. Favourites though would be
Predator, Dawn of the Dead, LotR, Star Wars (If you don't like Star
Wars....possibly no hope), Waynes World etc. Shows - I love things
like Game of Thrones,Spartacus, etc. I also have a big soft spot
for old cartoons, I grew up with Transformers xD. Music, it's
easier to ask me what I don't like. Dubstep and most dance music,
not cool. Majorly into rock and metal, but also love funk, jazz,
fusion, old rap (Think De La Soul) etc. Food - Chinese. I love it.
Also, video games, they're not mentioned here, but I shall.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music, guitar, an imagination, and food, water and oxygen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Music. Giant robots. Giant robots fighting other giant robots. With
music. Explosions. Superheroes. Ninja. Etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing......something? It really depends. I could be working.
Alternatively, I could be heading to the pub with friends, hanging
out with friends, writing or learning something new on the guitar,
being a nerd. It really depends on the situation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I look like a terrifying metalhead, but the last thing I learned on
guitar was a mariachi song. Latin music just wins it for me.
