Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Since lists seem to be the in thing to do these days, here are a
few things I enjoy:
* Traveling: I'm lucky that my work has taken me to all corners of
the world and there are many places that I would love to revisit,
preferably with someone to truly enjoy the experience, top of the
list are New Zealand and Vietnam.
* Reading: Everything from The FT to cooking blogs, I have a
voracious appetite for knowledge and good stories.
* Spending time with friends: I am of the opinion that it is the
people that matters more than the location. It could be as simple
as a potluck dinner with friends but as long as it is with people
whose company I enjoy, it beats dinner at the finest
* Films/TV/Music: I'm reminded of Dave Grohl's quote, "I don’t
believe in guilty pleasures. If you like something, like it." And I
freely admit that I enjoy romantic comedies like "Must Love Dogs"
(or really, any John Cusack movie) and find Taylor Swift's newest
album to be very catchy and enjoyable.
These few things aside, I am very passionate about my family,
friends, and work. Perhaps a bit too much of that last one if I
were honest. Other random hobbies include photography, cooking,
watching documentaries, and wine "tasting" (really, just wine
While I no longer put a lot of stock in the Myers–Briggs
personality test, I have found that I'm what is colloquially known
as an extroverted-introvert. Meaning that while I enjoy and happily
engage in large social gatherings I much prefer smaller intimate
sets. An excellent evening for me is getting together with friends,
new and old, to share an good bottle of wine and engaging
With all that said, even though I have many things to fill my time
they never fill the emptiness that I long to be filled by another
person; what I truly miss is the tingle I get every time that
special someone's name pops up on my phone, be it a call or just a
quick text to say hello.
I am introspective, self-critical, and witty.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm very good at stealing kids' lunch money and their lollipop.
Rest assured I'm only giving it to other, less well off children
The thing that keeps the lights on though is my job as a management
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, reading, and giving you my opinion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
(A) Some of my favourite books include Great Expectations, Princess
Bride, and Lord of the Rings; and while I've seen all of them on
the screens the books are still vastly superior.
(B) I watch a lot of documentaries and an overwhelming fondness for
all things BBC. From Dr. Who to the latest Attenborough
documentary. I also delight in sitcoms like Modern Family and
procedurals like Castle.
(C) I've learned to appreciate music in all its form (not to
mention I am hopeless at keeping up with what's going on currently)
and often retreat back to favourites like Radiohead, OMD, Avett
Brothers, Regina Spektor, and Josh Radin.
(D) Chinese food! Sushi is also great. My recent culinary
adventures have centered around Central and South American food,
like a good Peruvian saltado.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why premium denim is almost always button fly. The zipper was
invented over 100 years ago, get with the times people!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the airport coming home from a week spent on the road and
heading towards meeting up with friends for a quiet dinner enjoying
fine wine and great conversation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am deathly afraid of snakes and rollercoasters.
