Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi. My name is John and I'm a 36 year old South-East Londoner and
I'm hoping to find my female match, with a view to friendship
initially and then to see where it goes if the chemistry is
Physically, I'm 6ft tall and easy on the eye. I'm a keen cyclist.
As of April 2012, I've cycled in excess of 7,500 miles since Jan
1st 2011, so you can pretty much say I've got thighs you can crack
walnuts with. I'm far from a fitness freak though.
I'd describe myself as a confident, friendly, sociable and honest
fun-loving guy. Friends would describe me as genuine, reliable,
romantic, devoted to friends and family, generous and
University educated, I now have a Senior Post in Research Funding
in a major London University which I love very much.
I love socialising with my friends whether it be in a pub, bar or
restaurant or chilling out at home and am equally as happy curled
up on the sofa either reading or watching TV or DVDs, even while on
my turbo trainer lol. I also regularly watch live sporting events
and like going to gigs.
I'm a rare breed being male, house-trained domestically and being
able to multitask. I love cooking, dont mind housework but cant
stand ironing, although competent lol.
So what about you? I'm looking for a genuine, fun-loving lady to
spend some time with, to have some fun with and treat them like a
Princess and then to see where it goes.
So thats about it. If you like the sound of what you've read and
you'd like to chat or just pop by and say Hi, feel free to send me
a message. Hope to chat soon :-)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Now thats a question.
Amongst working a full time job and caring for my daughter, I'm
currently deep in training for a London 2 Paris Cycle Ride at the
beginning of June 2012.
I've made a number of sacrifices including no alcohol in 2012 until
after the ride finishes in June. I must be mad :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My blue eyes (or my legs if I'm in my cycling kit!) :-)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book - "It's not about the bike" by Lance Armstrong. Inspirational
story about his fight for life against cancer and how he came back
to win the Tour de France.
Films - have enjoyed Drive, Horrible Bosses, 30 minutes or less
Shows - saw Shrek the musical at Xmas which was great. Enjoyed Rock
of Ages, Hairspray and We Will Rock You
Music - can listen to almost anything. The Beatles to Bob Marley,
House music to Rock music and everything in between. Have to admit
to sharing my iTunes a/c with my daughter, which means my iPhone is
synced with the likes of One Direction lol.
TV - The Apprentice, Top Gear, Saturday night trash (X Factor,
Strictly), not so much the soaps, any sport...
Food - will eat literally anything put it front of me. Have a sweet
tooth. On a shortish 50 mile bike ride, I'll burn in the region of
2,500 calories so I can eat like a horse when I get back!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter, my family, my friends...my road bikes, my laptop and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hmmmmmm, tricky one that.
Mainly my daughter, when I'm not with her, always wondering what
she's up to, especially the weekends I dont get to see her.
I think about my brother a lot too (check out steviedisco and
you'll see why), I think about my parents.
I think about what hills I can ride my bike up to get my heart
I think about what I'm going to eat for my next meal almost
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends if I have got my daughter for the weekend...
If she's with me for the weekend, it'll be watching a DVD curled up
on the sofa together before she falls asleep then I'll have a
reasonably early night.
If she's not with me, I may spend some time catching up with my
brother either at home or out at the pub or a restaurant. I may
socialise with my work colleagues or I may spend time with my
friends. Usually there is a choice of things to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Male cyclists pay more attention to male grooming than most other
men. Answers on the back of a post card please, I'll let you work
that one out for yourselves :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

goes. Look forward to hearing from you :-)
