Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a very inquisitive person. I love learning about things and I
particularly like talking to anyone who is passionate about what
they do or what they're interested in. You know when you meet
someone and find out what they really care about? There's a click
and suddenly you find you're in an wonderful place sharing
something exciting with someone who talks with passion and sweeps
you away to their world where you can experience something amazing.
I love making that connection. It probably explains why I'm
I am caring, optimistic, and passionate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
To earn a living, I lead a technical team. I make it my job to
inspire them to be much more than they thought they could be and to
do amazing things. I take great pleasure in doing many things that
people tell me I can't possibly do. I must be doing something
right: I have a fiercely loyal and happy team.
Outside of that, I'm enjoying doing a lot more socialising than I
used to. I go to the theatre a lot, have dinner with friends, visit
places of natural beauty and generally get out and enjoy life.
Although sometimes my eyelids wish I spent a bit more time in bed.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I have a serious side and a playful side.
I'm serious about my friends - I'm very supportive, helpful and I
always have strong arms to make it better. I have a steely
determination to make a difference and change things that other
people think can't be changed.
I'm also good at being silly and playful. Sometimes it's fun just
to escape the world and muck about, laughing with the people you
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a little bit shy and quiet when I don't know people.
Fortunately, that just makes me a really good listener. And once
you get to know me, you'll find out that I'm very friendly and
passionate about what I do. I'm also fiercely loyal to the people I
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love books and movies about connections with people and following
your dreams. I love "It's a Wonderful Life" for how George Bailey
cares for everyone around him and they pull through for him. I love
"Apollo 13" for the incredible vision of the Apollo program, the
bravery of true heroes and the collaboration of so many people to
pull off an impossible rescue. I love "Lilo & Stitch" for being
about the importance of family and accepting people for who they
I've got a broad taste in music. If I want something toe-tapping I
might go for Seth Lakeman. If I'm feeling chilled, Jack Johnson. If
I'm feeling really chilled something classical like Einaudi. When I
want to get things done and want something heavy I might choose Red
Hot Chili Peppers, Evanescence or Iron Maiden. And general
favourites include Kate Bush, Fisher, Ashley Maher and Tori Amos.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(1) Love & Friendship - without connection with other people I
don't really know what the point is. (2) Laughter & Having Fun
(3) Touch - I'm a very tactile person; I know I'm connected to
people through those little touches or those big hugs. (4) Cheeky
Innuendo - If someone asks me for a dessert, I just give them one;
sometimes they get ice cream too. (5) Ice Cream (6) Raised eyebrows
- see 4 :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everyone has their own internal world but we're not really taught
how to understand it or access it. It causes all kinds of trouble
because there are things inside that you really need and deep
feelings you have that can get trapped inside of you. But you can
free yourself and start to do the things that really make you happy
and see how you can reach out and connect to other people as the
person you really are.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Aware that it is Friday. Friday's not much different to other
nights: I go all all different days of the week; and sometimes I'll
stay in cuddled up in front of the TV or working on a project.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Oh no, no, no... you only get the good stuff once you know me well.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to laugh, share your passions in life and maybe end up in
some deep conversations - or, more likely, some quite silly
conversations. Just tell me what wonderful things you've been doing
or, even better, what wonderful things you wish you could do. I'd
love to find out what makes you special and unique - you've got
nothing to lose and we'll have a fun conversation.
