My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello! My name's Mike, and welcome to my profile.

The TL; DR summary:
Mechanical engineer, avid piano-player, expert of unintentional sarcasm and ice cream fanatic. Somewhat tired of meeting people the conventional way, so created this profile. Looking for somebody cool and/or awesome to enjoy London with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I finished my Master's in engineering last year, which basically means people now expect me to know how to fix their broken carburettor, when in reality I haven't the foggiest. But anyway if people want to think my typical day echoes Megan Fox à la Transformers*, then they can be my guest.

After graduating I moved to East London and now work at an engineering consultancy for offshore contraptions and underwawter doohickeys (excuse the technical jargon).

Music is a huge passion, second only to ice cream, cookies and Charlie Brooker. I play the piano- mostly the Romantics (Chopin, Liszt, Rachmaninoff, etc.), but some covers also sneak in sometimes. Unfortunately I'm terrible at singing- I usually only do it to ward off evil spirits.
You're welcome.

*Please note: I do not endorse this movie.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mentioning Charlie Brooker in conversation wherever possible, because he's a saint.

Terrible, terrible puns.

Accidentally insulting people, usually with unintentional sarcasm.

Non-photogenicity. Making up words.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My flatmates likened my personality to Simon Amstell when I first moved in, which is a success in my book.

Some people think that I'm from Norway. I get that a lot.

I look pretty young but I offset it by complaining about the youth on my lawn.

I actually don't swear very much. Or actually I do, but I replace all the words with delicious things like fudge, sugar and custard.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I love reading, but definitely not active enough on that front at the moment. I did just finish Orwell's 1984 though, which I'd probably say is one of my favourite reads to date. Currently reading Transition by Iain Banks.

Films - Recently? Man on Wire, Submarine, Howl's Moving Castle. If it's good then I'll watch it.

TV - Anything with Charlie Brooker/Simon Amstell, Lost, Game of Thrones, Flight of the Conchords, Black Mirror, Breaking Bad, Nathan Barley, Life on Mars, Sherlock, Adventure Time!, Attack on Titan, The Walking Dead.

Music - The Radioheads, Elbow, Wild Beasts, Perfume Genius, St. Vincent, Grizzly Bear, Interpol, The xx, Sufjan Stevens, Warpaint, PJ Harvey, Lykke Li, Beck, Laura Marling, Nicholas Jaar, Animal Collective, etc. etc. The list goes on.
Favourite composers are Ravel, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Poulenc.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My piano/keyboard
Ice cream
Cookies
Music
Terrible, terrible puns
Walking around London

Also, as an added bonus, things I could definitely do without:
'Lad' culture
Hashtags, especially on TV
Raisin cookies pretending to be chocolate-chip
People who say their own name at the start of a song
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Feminism and how equality can be achieved in practice.

-Who comes up with some of the match questions on here. Some of them are downright disturbing...

-How society needs a symbol representing sarcasm for texting, so everyone will finally stop thinking I'm saying something completely stupid on purpose.

Why the first song played on Mars was from popular dross-factory will.i.am and *not* David Bowie's 'Life on Mars'. What kind of message are we sending to these aliens?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either down the pub, or analysing Kanye West/Nicki Minaj lyrics and lamenting the state of humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a not-so-secret penchant for sparkly things.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're an open, honest person who isn't afraid to speak their mind.

I know some people on here pay a great deal of attention to the % match, but if I'm honest I'm not that fussed. I'd like to meet more people who disagree with my opinions on things! Each to their own though.

Also if you're actually interested in meeting up in person at some point! Though talking is fun, it's a let down if there's no 'spark' in person. So I like to meet up sooner rather than later.
