Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. I'm Josh, and I'm going to try to sell myself to you.
Friends and colleagues alike tell me I'm not a very nice person.
That hurts. Personally, I think I'm alright most of the time. Past
the insults and general horribleness, anyway.
I'm not that bad, really.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've moped around working in shops in a train station for the past
5 years now. Aside from that my life is spent on Netflix and
YouTube. That pretty much sums it up.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can ring an item through a till for you with at least a certain
degree of accuracy, if that's what you're into.
Falling asleep pretty quickly is also a specialty of mine. Which is
kind of more a hindrance than a skill, really. Well, depending on
the situation, anyway.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was known as "Josh with the glasses" by someone I used to work
with before they really knew me. "Cool" and "Mysterious" I think
were her words, but they might just be mine. Apparently I was a
disappointment when they actually got to know me though, so that's

My Netflix queue is probably like 100 movies and TV shows deep by
now. It's kind of overwhelming.
I like movies. I go to the cinema at least once a week usually, yet
I've never bothered signing up for that Unlimited thing. I've also
kept a log of practically every movie I've ever watched, for no
real reason. Favourites include Vanilla Sky, The Fountain, The
Science of Sleep, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Her and
TV shows are more of a flavour of the week thing with me, because I
get through them so fast. I love me some shows that are probably
aimed for teenage girls. I also watch anime, and I have a thing for
cheesy Korean dramas.
I'll add video games in to here as well. Despite feeling like I
don't have enough time to play them recently, because I'm so busy
with doing absolutely nothing else, I'll still buy every single
console released and any games that interest me in the slightest.
This has left me with a lighter pocket and a lot less space in my
I tend to listen to one thing for a week or two at a time and then
alternate between them. Music listened to as of late include Sigur
Rós, M83, Porter Robinson and Future Islands. Along with this,
other stuff I'll always go back to are Wild Nothing, Cliff
Martinez, Cocteau Twins, Placebo, Joanna Newsom, Alexisonfire and
I don't think my brain's creative enough to imagine the worlds and
scenarios that I'm reading in books. I can never think big enough,
and I find I get far too distracted by things around me to keep my
attention on the words on a page. I mostly just read graphic novels
and manga, probably because of this, which helps solve some of
these problems. Sandman and Scott Pilgrim are at the top.
I don't eat a lot of food, mainly just Coco Pops.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Earphones, the time, and milk.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Most every day I think about the day and the date and the time of
things, and the what ifs and could have beens.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I work Friday nights, week in, week out, so that's what I'm
typically doing. It gives me a valid reason to avoid social
interactions with friends though, so that's good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't know what I want. In general.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you've read this far and taken my profile in at least slight
jest, that's probably a good start. If you want to accompany me to
the cinema. As much as I don't mind going on my own all the time, I
can't help but feel like a goober when I do. Also if you want to
help me play scary video games, because I can't do it on my own out
of fear. Maybe you fancy helping me out with this. Keep in mind
that I am actually cripplingly socially inept, so me ever messaging
you first might be a long shot, but if you think we might get
along, give it a go, because I probably won't.
