Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Inquisitive to a fault, enthusiastic cook and big fan of that
feeling when you look at the sun and it makes you sneeze.
Will unashamedly admit to page hopping on Wikipedia for far too
long whilst trying to write/work/be a productive member of society.
There's just find so much interesting stuff on there! I love
looking back and thinking 'How on earth did I go from Henry VIII to
nuclear physics to chihuahuas?!' (I still don't know the answer to
that... If you've got a stranger link I'd love to hear it!)
I try and keep myself in a healthy state of being and I swim a
couple of times a week. I'm fairly good at it but I'd be keen to
find someone to try out something else with - squash, badminton,
chat in the sauna?
Big fan of History and culture, which means having London so near
by is handy. I love the Natural History Museum but I'm always open
to suggestions of places to visit/explore/eat so if you have any
feel free to share!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently work for Oxford University in their Continuing Education
Department. I also run my own YouTube Channel in my spare time -
mainly discussing and reviewing Movies.
I've only just moved to Oxford so it'd be great to meet some new
people and explore what the city has to offer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Some things that I've either:
Been told I'm good at or
Assume I probably am a little bit good at because it hasn't killed
Dancing - I've been told that I can dance well but not, and I
quote, sexily. Which is why my career as a pole dancer never took
Swimming - going everyday will help with that... Now that I not go
a few times a week I guess I'm just 'good' rather than 'really
YouTube - This is definitely one of my most enjoyable hobbies.
Although listening to your own voice is clearly one of the lower
levels of hell.
Smiling - Apparently I have an amazing smile. People (rather more
often than you'd expect) come up to me when I'm out and just ask me
to smile, which obviously makes me smile even more. Which makes
them giggle like little children. So I smile even more. Then my
face hurts and it never ends well for anyone.
Flying - I used to have flying lessons and I was rather good.
Except for landing, that little detail was a minor issue...
Unfortunately I had to stop (they're a bit expensive!) when I went
to Uni but I'd love to take it up again someday!
Writing lists of what I'm really good at - apparently.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
More than likely my smile.
Or my amazing non-sexy dancing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A quick, somewhat random selection might include...
- A Short History of Nearly Everything (if you haven't read this I
cannot recommend it enough, it's one of the books you can finish
and just start again at page one and it's still bloody
- The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
- Blood, Sweat and Tea
- The Fifth Element
- Jurassic Park
- Goldeneye (Though Skyfall is definitely a threat to this
- Terminator 2
Music: This is going to be an... odd mix...
- 1812 Overture
- Let's be honest... The entire Rock of Ages soundtrack (I'm
currently listening to it on repeat as I type this...)
- Anything Rock or Metal
- Taylor Swift. Yep.
- Mumford & Sons (they were amazing live!)
(I feel the need to mention that the radio in my car is perpetually
on Magic - so make of that what you will!)
I don't often play games anymore but in the interest of
- Final Fantasy X is hands down the best Final Fantasy game.
- Ocarina of Time is hands down the best Zelda game. Ever.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A pen and paper
Swimwear. Non-torn swimwear. This has been an issue before...
Red wine. Not. Even. Sorry.
My iPhone. I am a little bit sorry about that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How long do I have to wait until Game of Thrones is back? (It's
When will I manage to finally do that Trans Siberian journey across
Europe? (Fellow traveller would be more than welcome to come
Why do I not own more bottles of red?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either in a bar with some friends catching up over some wine or
chilling with my flatmate whilst watching something horrendous on
Netflix/laughing at Angela Merkel. Also with wine.
An ideal Friday would be boarding a train to spend a long weekend
in Edinburgh/Durham or catching a flight to Barcelona and spending
a few days chilling on a nice sandy beach with some friends!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once got my head stuck in a metal fence and had to wait 20
minutes for it to be cut free. I wouldn't exactly call this private
though, I generally break it out pretty quickly upon meeting
Also my swimming shorts tore mid-swim once. Right down the middle.
That was quite embarrassing!
