Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's hard to sum yourself up in a paragraph! I'm serious but
fun-loving, organised but spontaneous, interested in everything but
always happy to have an afternoon nap, calm but nuts. Like most
people I'm working hard to earn a living, always thinking about my
next holiday and almost always in the mood for chocolate.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Work is important to me and I try to do my best, but I work to earn
money and I want to enjoy life outside of work. I want to travel
and see different places - it's a big world out there and I need to
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a bit of a jack of all trades! I enjoy writing and crafting, I
can turn my hand to DIY, I'm reasonably good at my job, I can cook
up a meal, I'm a good friend... but not sure that I'm 'really' good
at anything!! I'm quite organised so I'm good at planning things. I
can be focussed so I'm good at getting things done. This sounds
very boring, doesn't it. Maybe I'm just really good at being
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It's hard to know, you'd need to ask the other people. I suppose
people would say I'm a bit shy until they get to know me, but then
I think they would comment on my slightly dark sense of humour. I
don't think there's anything visually striking about me - I hope
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My choice of books is quite eclectic - a few classics,
autobiographies, non-fiction... I love old books, especially
medical ones because it's funny and scarey how wrong we used to get
it! I do like my Good Food magazine subscription, although I never
cook anything from it. I like receipe books for puddings and cakes,
none of this savory nonsense! I'm a sci-fi fan, but I also like
comedy films and horror films. I'm an unashamed fan of west end
musicals so I love all the show tunes, but I also like lots of pop
music, some classical. I'm a child of the 80's so I think that
decade produced the best music.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sounds mushy and predictable but I couldn't live without my family
and friends. Probably wouldn't be very happy without work actually
because it gives me focus and a sense of achievement. Couldn't live
without my showtunes! Wouldn't be happy without coffee, cola and
chocolate - can that count as one thing? Two more... I love America
and would hate the thought that I could never again be in Vegas or
New York or Florida. Lastly... the sun: couldn't live without sunny
days in grassy fields, picnics and relaxing on a blanket and ice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm over-analytical and I think too much about things that have
happened, work, worrying about everything! I appreciate someone who
can make me laugh and distract me from being so serious. I'm a
writer so my head is always filled with some embryonic story or
other. I love my holidays and am often daydreaming about the next
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Happily having dinner with friends, or having a cosy night in with
a glass of wine, or going for a walk in the summer. I am absolutely
not a pub / club kind of person, but I do like going out for meals
or to see a show or to the cinema.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That's a great question but I need to give it a bit of thought
before I answer!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd like to meet someone special, but am also happy to meet new
friends or someone to just chat with online. Let's get talking and
see if we can make each other laugh and have a good conversation.
