Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been called "calmly listless" - I try to avoid boredom as much
as possible, but I'm quite at east in many different situations. I
like to live a weird and varied life with as many random,
enthralling, spontaneous happenings as possible (- which I'm always
I'm interested in everything, from abstract topics like philosophy,
politics and art to film and tv. I socialize a lot and with
friends, attend lectures, discussion groups, museums etc. otherwise
I watch TV series (from breaking bad to Dr Who), films and I've
just finished working on a master's.
I'm quite intelligent with two degrees in physics, published in
philosophy and I've delivered a lot of lectures and talks on varied
subjects. I have a few of cultural and intellectual achievements
which I won't list since it's quite easy to sound arrogant here:
but since it's an aspect of my character that most people remark
upon and a lot of my personal time is spent using my mind one way
or another, it seems important enough to mention.
Certain political principles are quite important to me (in
particular, moral equality and power). I cannot find people I
dislike attractive (unfortunately!) and I will really dislike you
if you're big on screwing over other people to get ahead (ie. im
left wing). Other than that I try to be generous in considering
other views, if disagreeable when doing so.
Since it's come up in conversation I'm (E|I)NTP, I'd be careful
about generalizing too much though.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for a financial start up as a CTO having just finished my
studies. I try to organise dinner parties, drinks, films etc. with
friends as much as possible. I try to go to as many events around
London as I can find, especially discussion groups and anything
related to philosophy, politics or art.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I would like to be good at making the world a more interesting
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my dimples, when I smile.. I also I tend to wear quite
distinctive clothing and glasses...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favourite movies are (at least): american beauty, 12 angry men,
annie hall, Manhattan, blade runner, american psycho, ... (list
goes on for awhile). I also read a lot of non-fiction.
I'm a fan of bebop jazz and swing and most modern music (eminem to
daft punk) though I'm not that keen on dubstep.
I make food a lot, especially for groups of people. I cook
morrocan, english, french, american and I'm planning on starting to
cook curries from scratch.
I write and read poetry. My writing style is more beat circle, but
i enjoy reading most eras esp. modernist.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends, films, philosophy, art, comedy and jouissance.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I write for a few popular blogs online... I listen to a lot of
music and have long conversations about random things. In my own
time I'm usually preoccupied by the intersection of psychology,
politics and philosophy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My weekends tend to be quite varied so there isn't a "typical"
Perhaps I'll be at a bar, at a friends house or in my apartment
with friends. Possibly watching a film and drinking some wine/beer
if all other plans fail.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I like bad teen emo-dramas (the vampire diaries, etc.)
