My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello. My name is Michael and I like music and books and sitting around thinking about stuff and drinking tea and talking to cats and playing the guitar. Probably some other stuff too, I forget.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Brief summary of my life so far: went to school, did some A-Levels, went to Oxford, dropped out, played guitar in a band for a couple of years, worked at a crazy golf course, went back to uni (Salford), did a degree in French and Spanish and translation and stuff. Spent much of 2011-12 in Madrid and Paris, which was nice.
Then worked in a supermarket for a bit, then left. Now I'm trying to work out what to do next.
UPDATE: I (sort of) worked out what to do next, and I'm just starting a very boring but okayish sort of job. I should really just re-write this whole thing. Also I should upload some up to date pictures. Although I fear I may have become slightly more hideously ugly over the last year or so. That profile picture is from nearly three years ago now, Jesus. Alright Mike stop typing...
What else...I ran a marathon last year (UPDATE: year before last. That was fun. Then I did a half marathon. And then another marathon this year, and then a 10k. Now my legs hurt. UPDATE: did another 10k.)
I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life, but doesn't that just make it a wee bit more interesting?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Wasting time, drinking tea, umm...that's probably about it. I'm terribly modest, wouldn't want to brag about anything...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I have a beard. Sometimes I have glasses. Sometimes I have neither. Sometimes my hair is long and sometimes it's short. I like to keep people on their toes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My guitar(s)
Books and films and stuff
My family
My friends

(please don't tell my family and friends I put them below booze in this list - I really haven't thought this through...)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. I think far too much, but then don't we all.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Down the pub with my friends, at a gig or something, sitting at home on my own messing about on the computer, eating pizza, having a big crazy night out...anything, depends on my mood and what's going on.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My middle name is Benjamin. Get to know me a bit better and maybe I'll tell you some slightly more interesting stuff :-)

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a lovely person who might be interested in having someone with whom to sit around drinking tea and talking bollocks.
