Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello there! I know what you're thinking.."Wow..did she really have
to write that much?"
Always difficult to know where to start.. so here are a few random
facts about me, and other info..
I should add to start with..I'm not high maintenance or one of
those "it's complicated" types if anything "I'm simple" , nor am I
looking to be with someone who is high maintenance either.
Sometimes I misread words..with comical results.
I am the sort of person who can chat to pretty much anyone.
I have very small feet and therefore hate shoe shopping - I've
never understood why many women have so many shoes (so you know I
won't be dragging you around to find shoes that go with that one
outfit that will only be worn once because no one could possibly
see you wear it twice!).
Music is my main interest. I love music, I'm into all sorts of
music, it would be great if I met someone who equally had a love of
Things that might help you to know about me:
- I definitely won't go out with anyone who smokes,
- I look a lot younger than I am (bring on 30 I say!),
- I can appear shy at first sometimes but once you get to know me
you'll see I can be very chatty and I take the piss out of myself
an awful lot (including some of my mates too)
I am looking for a long term relationship - so please don't take
this as "Oh god she's going to be that desperate type" I'm not at
all clingy, I can be really independent and I know what I want out
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love all the other kinds of things people always put down like -
going out with friends, cinema, shopping, going to comedy gigs,
music gigs,theatre, going to see ballets (I've seen Romeo and
Juliet and Swan Lake).
Work wise, I recently was working in a PRU (which I did for 6
years, I've recently stopped working there) with the really
challenging types of children who for whatever reason can't make it
in mainstream school, this was all about behaviour management in
the classroom. My current job is my own music business teaching
little ones (and adults) piano, I love creating new games and
materials to use in my teaching practice. Quite a bit of time is
taken up running my business or rehearsing - however, I know that
when I meet the right person, I will make time for them.
I've also now got into a regular habit of going to the gym.. I used
to hate going but in the last 6 months or so love going!
Recent update: I'm doing things that I've never done before and are
(slightly) out of my comfort zone.. So I've already done a
beginners improv class, a clowning class..an improv rap class..not
sure what is next, we'll see!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't really like this box because whatever you write makes you
look big headed.. so here are some random things..
I'll tell you what I'm not good at..writing these things!
My job working in a PRU (Pupil Referral Unit) required me to be
extremely patient and not get easily wound up by being sworn at
etc. Which is why I mentioned it earlier, it isn't a job most
people can do.
I am a real people person. I am very good at networking, last year
I chaired a business breakfast meeting every last Friday of the
month. About 30 people attend the meetings. The role means starting
and finishing on time, getting people to stick to their 60 seconds
(not as easy as it sounds), getting new people to join, persuading
people to do a 10 min slot-who normally wouldn't want to do it
I am really good at public speaking, I don't get flustered talking
to a room of people..
Recently, I did a reading at my brothers wedding. At the end of it,
people asked what my job was, because they thought it included
public speaking, or acting..
It has been said I am influential - but in a good way.
Listening to people.
Laughing at myself.
Wiggling my ears. One of many useful skills handed down from my
dad. No one else in my family can do this.
Also,I'm a pianist and cellist. I've been playing the piano since I
was 4yrs old and 'cello since I was 12. I am working on setting up
my own business teaching piano privately-so far it's going well. I
perform in a local orchestra and love it! I'm now looking at
joining an orchestra in London as well.
I also love taking photos.. and seem to think I am pretty good at
it - though this could be more to do with Instagram app..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Not sure what my favourite book is..I am reading a fantastic book
at the moment called I Laughed I Cried by Viv Groskop. She's a
journalist who hadn't ever done stand up comedy before, and she
decides to do 100 gigs in 100 nights. The book is about every gig
she did. It's wonderfully written and very funny..I've not finished
This is going to take a while to fill out..
Pretty much listen to anything..my tastes in music are really quite
broad. I quite happily listen to Pendulum next to Prokofiev, Muse
next to Mozart and Miles Davis. One of my all time favourite
composers would be Rachmaninov. I was brought up at home listening
to classical music and jazz.. Then when I went onto doing Music
Tech at college I had to be able to listen to anything and pick out
musical aspects to talk about, amongst other things.
There are some artists, or music that I really struggle to listen
to Opera being one, Justin Bieber being another..happy to listen to
drum and bass, dub step to name but a few genres.
I love finding new music artists to listen to..
I like shows like Spooks, Suits, White Collar, Covert Affairs,
Graceland, Scandal... Also shows that you have to pay attention to
or you get lost like Homeland.
I like period dramas, and BBC dramas..
Can't stand Family Guy.
That make you think, laugh, cry..no horror or scary or gory
I love dance films, I'm just fascinated by the dancing part..even
if the story line is awful, though Save the Last Dance 2 is an
exception - hours of my life I'll never get back.
Step Up 4 is a film with brilliant choreography. I think it's so
clever to be able to dance like that.
So to name some films..in no order
Bourne Trilogy, Inception, Now You See Me, Don Jon (watch before
you judge me on that one..it has a good message in it..not just
about porn addiction)
(I will list more later!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
2013 I did a stand up comedy course in Edinburgh which was over 2
days, and a total of 9 hours.
At the end of which I performed for 5mins in front of the (judging)
Currently, I am thinking a lot about that, I'd never done it
before...it took me completely out of my comfort zone.
I really enjoyed it.. Hoping to now go and do some more gigs.. Open
mic nights and just see how far I can take it. No idea how far it
will go..I just know I want to get back on stage..I am continuing
to learn from watching other comedians..and for now it's going to
be a lot of open mic nights and free gigs..
I've had some lovely feedback from people including comedians such
as the likes of Reginald D Hunter and other comedians who have been
in the industry and gigged for some time!
You can read more about it here..and keep up to date..(all my
videos get uploaded here too)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I teach piano lessons on Saturday mornings..so if I'm out I'm not
normally out incredibly late.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think your worth my time.
You noticed that it should have been 'you're'
It bothered you that it wasn't the correct use of 'your'
