Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Space ninja and life guru in training. With swords! But I might be
Actually, I'm a Swedish woman who lived in Scotland for a few years
(so clearly men in multicoloured skirts with a squeaky bag and high
socks are the most attractive thing ever) and I've lived and worked
in Japan because it's totez rad. I'm currently in Sweden visiting
my family until my next adventure reveals itself.
Aside from my love of funny internet expressions, I am a lover of
good writing, random post-its everywhere, the dodo calendar, and
I'm a pretty chill person, but one thing that is really important
to me is equality, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or sexuality.
But then again, I also love friendly bitching and complaining about
things for fun (there is a line somewhere, I'm sure).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I want to experience a lot of different things. I would like to
have lived on every continent at some point (um... except for
Antarctica, because even though I'd love to hang out with penguins,
that would be freezing) and I have an almost ridiculous urge to
travel and see what it's like in other countries. I'm not entirely
sure what I want to work with (I suppose my unrealistic dream is to
become a children's author), but I have a degree in English
teaching. I would like to have a very international life and
experience living in many different cultures. I also want to learn
the thriller dance and how to crack my knuckles, because those are
fantastic talents to have in a bar.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Entertaining myself. I've always got something to do, and I'm great
at writing to do lists (but less fantastic at getting everything
done.) I suppose I'm quite good at planning too, at least as far as
holidays go. And doing jigsaw puzzles.
On the other hand I am absolutely terrible at taking games
seriously, and laugh when I lose, so I'm the worst team mate for a
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
(My fourth arm. Strangely enough, nobody seems to notice the third
I'm a pretty cheerful person who makes strange jokes, and I've been
told I have a nice smile. (I've also been told that I'm really
friendly, but that might be because I like hugging people. And with
four arms you betcha I give great hugs.) I'm pretty socially
adaptable, so I'm sure people experience me differently. I'm quite
relaxed about most things and I love to invite people to whatever
I'm going to be doing (going to the movies, bowling, the arcade,
pub quiz etc.).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading, but a lot of my favourite literature is actually
children's literature, when the author expresses things in
unexpected ways which allows you to see things without your adult
goggles on. Diana Wynne Jones is definitely a favourite, and I also
adore the writing in Winnie the Pooh.
For adult literature I'm especially keen on Charles Dickens,
P.G.Wodehouse, Agatha Christie, and J.K.Rowling.
I like stories which are fun and interesting. I have to admit that
even though I am a bookish person and an English teacher, I will
put down a book (even classics! gasp!) if it doesn't interest me.
There is too little time in the world for bad books. Or bad movies.
Unless they are so bad that they become hilarious.
As far as movies go, I like anything that makes me laugh. I can
definitely watch drama as well though, and I really like horror
films (although horror is better in company). I am a complete
sucker for cinematography (I studied media at uni, oh yeah) and can
flail about lighting and colour usage and camera angles for ages if
I feel so inclined. My favourite film is V for Vendetta, but I
watched Moonrise Kingdom recently, which enchanted me a little. And
I want more movies like the Grand Budapest Hotel. I like having
Lord of the Rings marathons, or any other good film series, really.
It's especially fun when my brother and I watch Twilight for
I watch Glee (it's awkward and hilarious), and I love the cool
monsters in Supernatural. I also love British comedy shows and
standup. Doctor Who, Sherlock and Black Books are fantastic
(wonderful scripts), but I think my favourite show ever is Miranda.
I like some Japanese dramas and anime as well, and I am a huge
Prince of Tennis fan. Murder mysteries are also very compelling.
I've probably watched every episode of Midsomer Murders, Jonathan
Creek, and Criminal Minds.
Music wise I'm pretty easy, although my two favourite artists are
Amy Winehouse and Adele. I'm also very keen on George Ezra's
hipster guitar thing. My favourite music scene is rock/metal
though, because people there are really chill. It doesn't matter
where you come from or how you look as long as you're there to
enjoy a drink and some tunes.
I guess I simply like good music of any genre. Sometimes I feel a
real need to listen to Korn; sometimes I'm in a house mood; and
sometimes only choral music will do. I'm sure our music tastes will
Food in general is pretty terrific. Although living in Japan really
warps how you feel about food, since just because it looks
really good it doesn't mean that it will be, and vice versa. Aside
from Swedish food I've grown to love British food, and I love a
proper roast dinner. (Side note: in different countries foreign
food is different. Chinese food in Sweden is not the same as
Chinese food in Japan. Pizza in Sweden is not the same as pizza in
the UK. Or pizza in Italy, for that matter. :P)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, a proper bed, my computer, summer, nature and free
(Or: world domination, rubber ducks, three-legged race, deodorant,
Justin Bieber, and chicken nuggets.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the exciting things I'm going to do. I like planning for the
weekend, for my next holiday, for what I'm going to do next year...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having Friday night dinner! (Movie night, drinks, playing cards,
cosy times. Basically anything relaxing and fun.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't think I could be in a relationship with someone who doesn't
share my values. I'm looking for someone who is
Atheist/Christian/Buddhist/Shinto (or similar) but to whom religion
is not the focus of their lives.
I also believe that animal rights are more important than religious
And, uh... I kind of have a thing for curly hair.
