Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm Alex, a hopeless romantic who is far too aware of the
hopelessness of romance.
I studied languages at university, and lived in Spain and Italy for
a time. Now I'm back in Wales and trying to live a normal life
around my 'flexible' working hours.
I'm a bit of a nerd, into Marvel and DC equally, gaming when I have
the time. I'm full of useless Disney trivia -- did you know that
Aurora has less than 20 lines of dialogue in Sleeping Beauty? And
they're all *before* she falls into her deep sleep?
I try to keep fit through running, but I don't go to the gym -- my
local one is full of lads who lift and ladies who jog, and never
seems very welcoming.
Any questions: just ask!

Newly converted to sushi and Vietnamese.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A decent pair of headphones
Murakami's "What I talk about when I talk about running"
Travel & adventure
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
*getting out of here and seeing new sights.
*whether I'm on track with my running targets for this year.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at work.
