Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So... I'm in Edinburgh for a few years, coming from Marseille,
south of France. Yes I'm French, so come at your peril if you can't
stand French accent and having to repeat three times each sentence
And let's go ahead, there are plenty of other fields to fill ! ...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My job is doing research in Theoretical Physics. It's currently
taking me some time, and I have not a lot of free time, but
actually most of my time is stupidly wasted in
I used to do Jujitsu, and since the whole Jujitsu stuff doesn't
really exist in UK I'm beginning to train more specifically in
BJJ/MMA now. But I'm clearly not practicing enough currently.
I spend lot of time reading newspapers and talking about politics,
while I'm not an activist any more (but still an evil commie).
However, I'm completely disconnected from UK politics. A fortiori
since it is quite different from Europe.
I spend a bit of time learning / trying to learn / pretending to
learn some languages. I regularly use more or less any romance
language except Romanian (too hard). I'm currently trying a bit of
Esperanto, but except for that any try on a non-romance language is
usually a fail. The only non-romance language I can speak is
English actually, and it was after years and years of torture
against my will :D
I used do some homebrewing. Which is something very unusual in
France, where we don't have the same beer tradition as here . But
all my stuff stayed in France and for now I'm just enjoying
Scottish beer made by others.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
procrastinating, especially if it involves some administrative
paperwork. Exxxtremely good :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well... I have no fucking idea ! But I'ld be happy to hear what you
first noticed about me :)
Ah... No, actually I know what would probably be the first thing
now: my very strong French accent :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Book: The Capital
I read some more modern stuff of course, but most of the time very
Movies: Battleship Potemkin
Shows: a few very common TV shows on streaming (HIMYM,TBBT,Breaking
Music: I have no strict rule, as long as there is some quality
inside (so just remove a few mass products).
Food: I eat pretty much anything
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cheese and Wine... or Cheddar and Beer by (poor) substitution
Olive oil (seeing that it was possible to find relatively decent
oil in Scotland was a real relief :P )
My VISA Card (Saint-Marx please forgive my sins...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how many hippies can fit in a gulag.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I want no such thing as a typical Friday...
... or at least I don't want to have it thought and categorised as
a typical Friday.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You live around Edinburgh... and it doesn't put you off that I'll
very probably move in October.
Otherwise no precise criterion, just feel free to mail me. See you.
