Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A woman can not live on cheese and chocolate alone, although it's
worth a try.
Who am I?
I'm a scientist and a mum. Both things are important to me, but not
all that I am. I'm looking for something more, a companion, a
confidant, a friend.
I've never lived abroad before, but am loving Switzerland. I would
love to have somebody to explore the country with.
Why Switzerland you ask? Well, I'm an academic, and go where the
jobs are. Of course it would help if I spoke German, and am
learning.... Not as quickly as I would like though.
I like the countryside here, much less boring than the UK, the
animals have bells and the farms look like farms.
Here's a bit of filler info. I'm mousy, but that's not an option on
the list. My style is whatever I find in the wardrobe (or ironing
pile) first and I believe that make-up in the morning is for people
that do not like sleep. I have a pretty dry sense of humour,
although I do love an 'as the actress said to the bishop' joke as
much as the next man.
What am I looking for in a man?
No seriously, I'd like a man that thinks social interaction is more
important than his pectorals. And that social interaction does not
need an 'interface' and that a real face is better.
A man who can have a good animated discussion without descending
into a row or sulk.
Who is independent, but enjoys company for companies sake.
Someone who doesn't 'play the game' but lives his life.
Who understands that life is for living and is not married to
Failing that... a head, a torso......
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a scientist, and raising my kid.
Trying to see the country and have a life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books. I like most genres and normally am reading 2 or 3 books at
once. I think the books that stick with me the most are World War Z
(that book gives me nightmares if I read it too late) and The Years
of Rice and Salt (I love that it's two books, an alternate history
and a theology book). I inhale historic novels, especially
Movies. Well, my favourates are Indochine, Die Hard and The Truth
about Cats and Dogs. Again, pretty eclectic. I prefer action to
romance, but action has to have a plot and acting, not just pecs
and guns. Jason Bourne not Rambo (although, the bourne books are
better and First blood is great).
TV shows, again, pretty mixed. Action, adventure, Scifi, crime,
comedy, drama, period drama. I always try to watch Big Bang theory,
Have I got News for You and the Daily Show. Plus some of the BBC
miniseries are great. Love The Walking Dead, but not enough to
illegally download (or too much to?) so have to wait until it's
released in Switzerland. Plus... maybe this should be in
confessions, I watch Neighbours.
Music. Well.... again mixed. But at heart I'm a rock, metal, Indie
Food. Cheese. No fish. Melted cheese. No mushrooms. Backed cheese.
No processed meat.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The million things that I need to do, and why I don't have a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching TV or playing games until far too late, and then panicking
that I will be woken up by my kid in about 5 hours.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not, and hopefully never will, own an iPhone or iPod (I do
have an iPad though)
