Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 21 year old language student/practically graduate who is
originally from the south of England.
If my pictures drew you to my page, then fair enough... I'll admit
I tend to avoid the pictureless too... though I will admit that the
photos on this page are a relatively recent addition. Considering
the above, I believe I'll leave it to you to judge my appearance as
you will. Different people have different tastes... however, I'm
not necessarily on here for dating, sex or random hook-ups. I
wouldn't be opposed to finding a nice man for a relationship, but
I'm not under the illusion that this website will achieve that. So
I'm advertising for conversation mainly. If, by chance, you come to
my page after I've visited you and you're thinking "Da fudge is
this English person messaging me for - she's millions of miles
away"... I like conversation, no matter the location of the person.
If your profile looks interesting, I'll visit it. If it looks extra
interesting, I'll message you :D
Personality... funnily enough, today I was applying for graduate
jobs and I had to write a personal statement... now I know this is
a different situation, but I feel as though I'm advertising myself
(Do you think I could use this on my CV if I apply for sales and
marketing roles? "I have much experience advertising, more
specifically in the area of online dating"... maybe not :P)
I'm a pretty lazy person... I won't lie. You'll see that word
repeated many a time in this profile. I'd pretend I do a sport, but
that would be dishonest... and laughably misleading. If you don't
speak to non athletic people, then you're welcome to move on :) I
won't deceive you into believing I'm something that I'm not.
However... I did walk a few miles a day... to get to and from
uni... one can argue that is a sport, no? Walking... :D Joking.
Though I do enjoy walking to destinations.
Hahaha, if you're still with me... congratulations. You have a very
good attention span. Just as a final point in this section, I love
talking to people. If you have a nice personality, random fact or
good conversation in mind, then feel free to grab my attention.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been studying languages at university for the past 4 years and
will be graduating this summer. At the moment, I've just started a
job, so that keeps me occupied.
I aspire to visit the US in the near future... when I have
sufficient funds... and several other countries, but the US is the
big one. I have a fascination with said country, (yes, so average -
everyone outside the US is either fascinated by it, or thinks it's
boring... I fall into the former)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Languages... I'm pretty good at learning them... is that really a
skill? Hells yeahs :P I'm also a good listener... and I am okay at
making people laugh, though half the time it's not deliberate.
I have "mad skills" at knowing random facts. Fact. I'm also clearly
well versed in "gangsta" lingo. Don't worry... I'll keep it on the
down low (joking... I find it hilarious saying things like "in a
bizzle" and "fo' sure"... it conflicts completely with my
appearance... and tends to amuse people).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You're probably thinking this... yes, I'm psychic (joking - I tend
to sign post my jokes with new people, in this case you... prevents
I look younger than 21.
Was I right? You were definitely thinking that. Unfortunately I
frequently get "YOU'RE TWENTY ONE??!?!?!"... Last year, I went to
visit a friend teaching in Madrid. She took me with her to one of
her classes... one of the 12 year old school kids directly said
"No, she must be 13, like us", when confronted with the age 21. He
would not back down. In that school, I'm now 8 years younger than I
Before this puts you off, I can assure you that the age "13" as an
assumption was oddly low, even for me. I'm usually accused of being
between 15 and 18 at the lowest.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favourite book? The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons... though
I'm partial to fantasy books as a whole.
Favourite movie? Gladiator. Though the newer Batman's fall in close
second. Then any superhero movies.
Favourite tv shows? So numerous...but Stargate (SG-1 &
Atlantis), BSG, and Firefly are among my favourites. I'll admit to
enjoying Grey's Anatomy too... so sue me, I'm a woman after
As for food... I eat relatively healthy... I try to have my five
(fruit & veg) a day... BUT I LOVE chocolate... not American
chocolate though, American chocolate sucks (no offence).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Phone (has my music on it)
My laptop (it's how I communicate with family)
My family (though I could do without them occassionally :P)
Not sure what else...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Bed... I like being lazy.
Penguins... why not?
What I'll have for dinner/lunch.
Why the word "Thesaurus" (which is a reference book for those of
you who don't know) has "saur" in it... like the word "Dinosaur"...
how does a book relate to a dinosaur?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...trying to claim a lazy night in and ultimately failing... or
actually claiming a lazy night in and trying to find things to do
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an underachiever and procrastinator. I'm okay with admitting
it, but I'm not proud of it... though to be fair to myself, my nan
does keep telling me that I come from a long line of
procrastinators. It seems to run down the female line... Aka... not
my fault according to her :P (Yes, my nan is a legend... how many
others can put their procrastination down to genes?)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got this far through, and if you feel like making a
(no creeeeeeeeeeepy peoples please...)
If you decide to look at my profile, nice... if you decide to
message me? Nicer. If you decide to rate me? Nice of you, but I
won't know it's you... I don't have the "A-list" thing.
