Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love meeting people and am always chatting to people at bus
stops, in queues etc. i generally just buzz off life and am quite
hyper although i've got a chilled out attitude to life. live + let
live! i really enjoy drinking sauvignon blanc (I made the
switchover from drinking pints!), although also i love creamy
cocktails as well such as pina colada (made in a blender!), however
i favour traditional boozers as opposed to bars so i don't get to
drink my cocktails as much as i'd like to!
I might look serious in some photos and whilst I am
serious&passionate about left wing politics, don't be fooled,
I'm a hedonistic loon ;-) X
I am amicable, non-judgemental, empathic, hyper, disorganised,
idiosyncratic and contradictory...-
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Having graduated from uni I now work in a job that I could have
obtained minus the degree, and I am working as a support worker for
people with dual diagnosis of mental health and learning
disabilities. Its quite challenging and interesting. I am also
bringing up my 2 young (ish) daughters and we have pots of
On a not too fun note I literally am a single mum b'coz my
children's dad is deceased...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
comparmentalising my life and other things! although my number one
thing I'm good at is procrastinating! saying yes when I mean no and
that gets me in a lot of trouble. verbal sugar coating to save
people's feelings. also talking, whether its just trivia, gossip or
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i have a mad glint in my eye + people know i am up for a laugh as
it is normally accompanied by a wide smile!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

(sweet+sour, what a fantastic combination!) and mexican. also you
can't beat a home cooked roast on a sunday or any day of the week
for that matter!!!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my two young(ish) children (7+10 yrs) / my friends/ my vinyl
collection/ my book collection/going to poetry gigs/book readings
and signings around ldn/ drinking wine on the weekends!
I spend a lot of time thinking about

Wondering about this love lark and wondering if I'm just chasing an
Am I just aesthetically hideous OR is it just fundamentally
something wrong about me?? Or both... Hey don't answer
The possibility of parallel universes (yay!)
Why there's a (possibly perceived!) correlation between leftys on
okcupid and not drinking/ living it large? And vice versa! In
Brixton, where I live everyone is mixed; (left) political and party
nutters!!! What's wrong with that??!!!!
Also, why people hate. don't understand it at all!!!
And a new thought that has popped into my head since actively using
this website, all you maths boffins out there, should i be looking
to see statistically for a higher number on who i get on with, or
statistically a lower number for enemy eg is a 94% match but 18%
enemy better or worse than say 70% match but 8% enemy?? Whats the
process for working it out? Someone please message me if you know,
or even just think you know, thx!!!

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
(if not with the children) in the pub of course!
(if with the children) at home hanging out with the kids/ watching
a film/ playing candy crush saga!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Despite being naturally extroverted
+confident around meeting new people or friends, my confidence
evaporates a bit in relationships and i alternate between being
confident and wildly insecure, which is rectified with the right
Erm, Puff The Magic Dragon is one of my favourite songs! C'mon I
have got 2 small children! I feel I have to add its not my
favourite, (although too many to choose from) I would probably cite
some tracks from The Dead Kennedys!!!
