Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Having completed my final year of sleeping, drinking and having
long philosophical debates about pointless crap (ie university) in
Manchester, I am returning to London to seek my fortune. Luckily my
family name is not Pirrip and this is not the early 20th century so
I hope things are not going to be too difficult.
I play guitar and have done for a very long time, I love art, not
just in a traditional sense but in a broader sense. I often find
things more interesting artistically if they haven't been designed
with art as their primary function.
To this end I enjoy touring the cities of Europe investigating any
sculptures / architecture that interests me. So far I have done:
Berlin, Hamburg, Paris, Bruges, Amsterdam and Prague.
I am driven and intelligent, I have high aspirations and have up to
now always attained them this, of course has made me incredibly
I have always loved artists, musicians and general vagabonds. The
best relationships and friendships I have ever been a part of have
been with creative people yet I am a staunch scientist.
Unfortunately I am one of these logical types however I have always
tried to keep an open mind and in my opinion open mindedness is the
most important trait anyone can posses even if they have to
consciously try to attain it. (Open mindedness does not extend to
ideas that are quite obviously fallacious such as religion,
astrology and 'alternative' medicine.)
Im always up for a debate and I love playing the devils advocate,
this can sometimes upset some people but I never mean any real harm
by it I just find cogent debate entertaining and mentally
That is quite enough self absorbed narcissistic crap for one
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working 12h days (investment banking hours can be a little
antisocial), going to wine bars, eating out, enjoying the culture.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
playing very fast complicated things on a guitar ... cooking
artistically presented cuisine with incredibly obscure ingredients
(towers of food are definitely the way forward...).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm used to be my huge head of dredlocks but I have had them cut
off so I am not so sure anymore. Probably that I am almost
certainly opining on something or other.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
music : I'm currently listening to a lot of classical music mainly:
Bach's piano concertos, Liszt, Carl Orff i also like 70s and 80s
rock: read Led Zeppelin Fleetwood Mac etc, 80s metal i.e. Iron
Maiden and a load of new prog and metal i.e. Children of Bodom,
Dream Theater etc
movies : pulp fiction, the big lebowski (the dude abides),
apocolypse now, Schindlers List (Sad face), anything Arnold
Schwarzenegger (or however the hell you spell his name), I love
cheesy action films and also anything original or funny ... lots
really ill watch anything once.
TV: Black Books, Black Adder.... Black anything really. Dylan Moran
(seen live 2 times was funny) Dexter, Big Bang Theory, Breaking
Bad, random documentaries about sea urchins......
food: lobster tails fillet steak and caviar ..... or a curry
whatever. I love cooking, a lot. If money were no object I would
spend my life traveling around the Mediterranean making rustic
Italian, Spanish and Greek food surrounded by spectacular sea side
books: I mainly like novels about real things rather than total
none fiction (A Brief History of Time, Liars Poker, When Genius
Failed, Smartest Guys in the Room etc etc) I also read a lot of
formal non-fiction mainly to expand my knowledge in a specific area
that I am interested in (Think periodicals scientific journals and
text books). however: .. I did spend some time reading the
classics, Tolstoy, Dickens etc but I could never really get into
them (Great Expectations took me over a year to read even though I
am a fast reader). lord of the rings was good, harry potter was fun
when i was 13, the davinci code was rubbish....
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a private jet, an extensive collection of original art works, a
life times supply of 1959 Chateau Lafite Rothschild, an enormous
summer house in Monaco a 200 ft super yacht and a large staff to
pander to my every whim.... oh crap I've not got any of those (how
can I live without the little things).
How about intimacy friendship good health nice food a roof and my
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How the object in-front of me works, whatever it may be.... I am
one of these people who needs to know everything....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Drinking wine and enjoying good company, preferably in a bar with a
large terrace looking over whichever city I'm in. Contemplating the
fun and frolics of the weekend ahead. I think day time is
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Im secretly a giant bat. *flaps*
