Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ah, so this is the sell yourself with witty one liners bit. Well,
I`m no good at self promotion but I can say that I'm not demented
(although I have a sense of humour bordering on inappropriate that
definitely can land me in hot water), I`m fairly laid back, look
after my friends and family (and anything living really), am trying
to outgrow Imposter Syndrome in my new job, am a huge fan of
pottering and am very skilled at being outlandishly lazy but also
diligent and hardworking when I have to be. Oh and I love cider
(and cheese...anything beginning with C seems to be the theme).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Making lists and stuck on a loop of packing/unpacking lots of shit
that I seem to just move between two places over and over again.
The joys of living in 2 places I suppose. I`ve just qualified as a
Counselling Psychologist so I`m enjoying the sounds of Doctor
before my name but never ever let anyone on a plane know that. I
can finally travel again after years of being a skint student so I
spend far too long online staring at faraway wooky hideouts.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sorting other people`s shit out (it`s my day job after all),
mending things, cooking halloumi, driving too fast, growing
orchids, speed reading and remembering things about people that

Well that would depend on what their eyesight was like, and also
their hearing. Mmmm, people have said I am always smiling, but it
could well be a grimace. Probably red hair and I smell nice. Does
that answer the question?

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine (I get the irony living in England)
Good friends and family
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
A very happy camper to be back in Brighton after a week away at
work. I`m not that predictable, so it might be the movies,
chilliing on the sofa, or catching up with friends in the pub.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

If I hear Dire Straits on the radio I have to turn it up really
really loud and I know all the words (guilty pleasure courtesy of

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...You believe in compassion over aggression and laughter over
shouting. I`m not a fan of all over beige, or really white teeth
that hurt your eyes, scruffy or smart is fine, it`s not the clothes
that maketh the man is it?
I can be irreverent and stupid with you, but also serious and
passionate .. you enjoy a decent bottle of something delicious, can
laugh at yourself and the absurdity of the world, you`re happy to
sit through films with subtitles and have an aversion to romcoms.
I`m not interested in a career/wealth junkie, just someone who
loves what they do, whatever that happens to be. If you sounded
like Patrick Stewart or Ralph Fiennes that would be a bonus, but
thespians aside as long as you can hold a decent conversation in
the Queen`s English we should get along fine. Catspeak would be
good, and a superpower would be brilliant, but again these are
things I can live without, I just thought I`d throw it out there.
Baggage and issues are fine as long as they don`t border on the
psychotic and deranged (that`s my day job), a bit of spark and fire
in the belly is a definite and if you knew who Heidegger and
Nietzsche were I`d be super impressed. Oh and seeing as I am always
one clue away from finishing the G2 crossword if you could provide
that last remaining clue I`d be bowled over, but I like to be
suprised so I`ll leave the rest to you....
