Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm laid back but not without opinions, can be shy but not for too
long. I like inappropriate humour but i'm very caring and loving, I
even have a soft spot for london pigeons. I can't lie.
Fan of anything kitsch. I love glitter, other trinkets and
worthless tat. I can't pass a charity shop without going in.
My ideal place would be camping
by a beach or woodland. I’ve
done my fair share of travelling I love new adventures and a
healthy dose of adrenaline.
I’m always up for a game of Scrabble, a night of mild debauchry on
gin, the occasional club or tea & cake.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to learn the ukulele, dancing to the 5 rhythms, cycling from
a to b, life drawing, running, knitting, taking afternoon naps,
listening to 6music, wondering how I can get a dog, getting lost
(on purpose), planning tattoos, trying not to turn on the tv,
organising a book group, tenderly growing a minuscule amount of
I work in addictions so spend a lot of time pondering our complex
relationship with mind altering substances. Also trying to figure
out how I can have my next career break...last time I went
volunteering on organic farms around the uk. It was fun, except for
the angry ram.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making a mess (& tidying it back up again), making canapes,
ordering things by colour, growing things, making collages,

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books – A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole is my all
time favourite. It used to be Nights at the Circus by Angela Carter
Farm by George Orwell - Boxer the horse breaks my heart. Irvine
Welsh never fails to amuse me. Plus lots more.
Movies – I love Dogville. Hitchcock is a god, as is Todd Solondz.
Dogme 95 can be great. And the occasional classic like Bring it
Comedy - Alan Partridge, Flight of the Concordes, Summer Heights
High, Russell Brand, Simon Amstell, Human Remains, Brass Eye, The

general jumping around (though not exclusively) - FFS, Patti Smith,

Food - I love food especially meat free roasts. I'm kind of a
hypocritarian - would love to be a vegan but in reality a
pescetarian & dairy reducer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family & friends, my neon pink trousers, my bike, the little
blue & red dot on my phone, passport, absinthe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When in a meaningful conscious flow - What it's all about, how to
spend my time productively, colour & composition, how the body
works, how amazing the music I'm listening to is. In reality - sex,
what clothes to wear, life admin, what to do with my hair, what do
other people think.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no usual. I will often be found practicing on my uke,
catching up with friends, watching a movie, a dance class,
cooking/eating delicious things with or without some wine or gin.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I once went to a halloween party dressed as a zombie only to find
no one else had dressed up.
