Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fun-loving, easy-going guy who loves meeting people and
experiencing new cultures. I have studied all over Europe and I
lived in Germany for two years between 2007 and 2009, brilliant
experience. I went back to Germany for an extended holiday last
May... had a great time and have been back on home soil since 10th
Also, I am lovely. If I write to you, the message isn't going to
contain things like 'hi u are sexy' or 'hey u iz fit. wana
fúçk?'... How guys actually think that a woman appreciates messages
like that is beyond me. Plus, I am aware the site often matches
people up with partners whom you might never fancy in a million
years... if I message you and it turns out you aren't interested, a
reply saying something to the tune of "I appreciate your interest,
but sadly I'm not interested in you" goes down much better than
being completely ignored. I'm sure you would agree.
Plus, I am aware that a lot of the women I'm matched with here live
a distance away, that doesn't bother me! I drive and am more than
happy to travel to meet a potential partner if we hit it off well
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I used to be a teacher. My subjects were German and French, though
I can speak Italian and am trying to learn Spanish as well. I
thought it high time, though, to step out of the classroom and into
the real world... so I decided to return to university and started
an MA in Translation Studies in September 2013, and qualified as a
translator a year later. I've been working as a freelance
translator ever since. I never thought I'd find something else I
could become so passionate about… I have translated so many weird
and wonderful texts, it's unbelievable. I dare you to ask me what
the most obscure/ridiculous text I have been asked to translate
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I can relate to most kinds of people.
Cooking - I love to experiment in the kitchen.
I am a superb driver... *honk, honk*

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically, I'm told I have nice eyes and an infectious smile. I'm
also an affectionate man and, character wise, I'd add that I am
just a humble, intelligent, friendly, open person and I like people
to feel at ease around me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I had my arm twisted to watch Twilight recently, and I really liked
it, I'm ashamed to say. I guess that makes me a girl, haha, but if
it puts me in touch with my feminine side, I don't care! I'm very
sure my favourite "hollywood" style film would make you laugh, but
still... On a serious note, I also enjoy foreign cinema, German and
Italian films mainly.
Discovering my absolute favourite book of all time will likely make
you poke fun at me, so that is third or fourth date info, I am
On TV, I enjoyed Teen Wolf, Beauty and the Beast and Ringer, but
now I'm also quite getting into Arrow, the Flash, Sleepy Hollow and
Elementary. I also love Joss Whedon's series (Buffy, Angel,
Firefly, Dollhouse), the X-Files, Smallville, Friends and British
comedies like Allo Allo, Little Britain, Gavin and Stacey and the
Vicar of Dibley. Love a good TV boxset marathon on occasion!
I try to eat healthily, but it doesn't always work in this day and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

The friends I have made all over the world as a result of
My ipod - quite varied choons on there...
My internet connection
My eyes (and glasses... without them, my eyes are useless! Plus,
what else would I use to keep my secret identity covered?)
My red cape... I can't fly without it! ;o)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I try not to over analyse things, live for the moment sort of
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I much prefer quiet drinks in cosy pubs to standing in queues
trying to get into night clubs. Conversation over a pint or a glass
of wine is the way to go.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you are kind, intelligent, witty and laid back. If you are just as
happy staying in and watching DVDs as you are being out and about
by activity partners you understand things like going for walks or
bowling or to the cinema etc... you know, actual dating

girl that I have contact with on here. I'm not here looking for sex

with hiding behind your computer screen.
