My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fairly laid back, stay at home kind of guy. I am not into going out and partying. My idea of a good Saturday night is going home after work and cooking something nice to eat. I prefer to go running than drink. I go to the gym several times a week. Since passing the venerable age of 30 I have been trying to lead a healthier kind of life which has meant quitting smoking, cutting down on drinking, learning to cook so that I don't end up eating too much crap. This year I am trying to cut down on the amount of chocolate that I eat (and I do love chocolate).

I spend a lot of time studying Japanese and, whilst I want to get much better, I do think that my Japanese is pretty good. I have been living over here for about 4 and a half years (as of January 2006) and have no real plans to go back to England

I guess that I am not a very social person. I prefer haning around with a couple of good friends rather than going out to big parties. That is, perhaps, one reason that I have not really met anyone that I like recently

I am intense, strange, and shy
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm living in Japan and having a pretty relaxed time of things.I work for an English language school which is not exactly stressful. The salary isn't great but it isn't awful either. I have no real plans for the future although I will probably end up going back to England in the end and becoming an elementary school teacher or something like that.
I’m really good at

Ok. This is really stupid. You know the placebo effect where to test new drugs they give half the people the real new drug and half the people sugar pills or something equally innefective against the disease in question. Some of the people taking the new drug get better (as is hoped by the drug company) but, strangely, some of the people who are taking the placebo also get better. The efficacy of the drug is measured (on a very rough account) by seeing how much better the new drug is than a placebo This, of course is very well known. However, my question is this.

Presumably in many cases the patients themselves are aware that the drug that they are being given is an experimental one (I say this because my brother's mother in law knows that she is taking an experimental drug). If we assume that in all cases when there is an experimental drug there are some people taking the drug and some people in the control group taking a placebo then people must be aware of the fact that there is a possibility that what they are taking is not, in fact, a new, experimental drug, but is, in fact nothing more than a sugar pill.

Now, given that when people sometimes take the placebo (but think that they are taking the new experimental drug) they get better. Surely it logically follows that there are people who are taking the placebo who believe that they are taking the placebo and so don't get better, i.e. there is no power of the mind at work (which is presumably what helps when the person taking the placebo gets better). Further more, there must also be some people who are actually taking the new, experimental drug who might be convinced that they are, in fact taking the placebo.

Now, if the power of the mind is strong enough to help cure a person with a serious disease even when they are only taking sugar pills then is it strong enough to do the opposite. By the opposite, which I term the anti-placebo effect, I mean: can some peopl who are seriously ill be introduced to a new, experimental drug, and atually receive the experimental drug BUT because they are lifelong pessimists believe that they are being given the placebo and so do not get better even though the new experimental drug IS effective?

Sorry, that was a bit longer than I expected

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are British and living in Japan (preferably near Tokyo). You like classic British comedy (or modern british comedy) You know who Hattie Jaques / Kenneth Williams / Kenneth Horne / Bill Kerr / Joan Sims / Bernard Cribbens etc are. You know about Seinfeld or other bizarre American Comedy. Are quite a quiet person who prefers the company of a small group of friends to going out partying and drinking. Like to watch crappy movies on BBC2 or Channel 4 on Sunday afternoon(ok, technically not possible if you live in Japan, but you know what I mean). Are a relaxed and easygoing kind of person. Like to work out and keep fit and watch sports. Speak perfect or almost perfect English Not all of these things are essential but you must match at least a couple of them if things are going to work out.
