Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Fairly decent chap, independent, organised, open minded and down to
earth. Trying to be a good person, as corny as it sounds. "You give
what you get".. and get what you give.. that kind of thing.
Probably happiest when I'm active, or doing something creative, or
when I'm down by the coast.. or in fact generally when I'm catching
up with great friends and family. Like to have a positive outlook
on life, helped by a strong sense of humour.
Love trying new things and saying 'yes' as often as possible,
believing life can serve you up some nice surprises when you put
yourself out there. Can also see the value of recharging batteries
though so I'm equally no stranger to chilling out when the time
Here to see if I can find other like-minded people, and who knows
maybe even that special someone to share the ride with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Recently into yoga, swimming, fixing coffee machines, picking
recipes from random cookbooks, seeing live comedy and learning to
play the violin. During the day I work in Soho at a visual effects
company where I'm a web developer. I've also started to learn more
about the actual design side of things which is great.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Tennis, dancing, flipping a pancake.. those sorts of things
involving co-ordination are the things I'm good at. Pretty good
with computers too and enjoy using them for creative things like
photo / video editing. I'm told I'm a good listener, can make
people laugh, can choose great gifts, and some cupcakes I made once
were described as 'mean', but I think this was meant as a
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love a good film, even just down to the occasion of watching one. I
love finding new places to watch them like old cinemas or new
rooftop places. Old favourites include Back to the Future, The
Shawshank Redemption, Good Will Hunting and American Beauty. Recent
ones off the top of my head include Drive, District 9, Gravity and
The Grand Budapest Hotel.
Don't watch a lot of live TV (well, except Gogglebox if I'm in, but
who doesn't) but hooked on the usual great US/UK dramas and
comedies, e.g. Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does
Countdown, Black Mirror and Inside No. 9. From the past we're
talking things like Alan Partridge, Black Adder, The Office, Spaced
Like quite a wide mix, in fact probably everything besides heavy
metal, whatever that means. At the moment I'm listening a lot of
The National, Muse, Alt-J, Foals, Bon Iver and The xx. I'm also
really into music used in films.
Still really impressed with 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the
Night-Time' and how it was translated, especially the use of the
stage and how that 'transforms' etc. 'Book of Mormon' I found
really funny, and that probably says a lot about how far my sense
of humour stretches.
I like everything. Except celery. Unless of course there's houmous
available for dipping, then it's all fine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Trips to the coast
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Setting up a local cinema, trips to the coast, learning to play
more instruments, taking dance classes, how I really need to sort
the garden out before it turns into a jungle.. all sorts.
