Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi I'm Nick!
I'm from New Zealand but been in London for around three years. Was
meant to only stay here for about 6 months but I loved the fact I
could get vitamin d deficiency from a lack of sunlight so I have
stayed on longer than expected (there is a real story behind this -
ask me if you want to find out!). I am lucky enough to have three
passports (none of which are British). If you can guess them all on
the first go you will definitely have my attention (One is obvious,
the other two slightly obscure).
I love travelling, the outdoors, movies, and most sports. Did a big
stint travelling in South America for 5 months (worked in an
orphanage in Bolivia) and now settled in London working in
commercial finance in a media company. I try to get out of London
on at least a City break once a month, and my current goal is to
reach 50 countries before I am 30 (up to 47 so getting down to the
I'm adventurous and spontaneous and my thing at the moment is
booking a flight for the weekend on a friday morning to leave on
the Friday night. Last time ended up in Hamburg and met some
awesome people out there! Can't beat Skyscanner. In saying that
though I also enjoy living in London and spending time with
friends, going to a market or going to a new bar somewhere.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment I'm kind of just winging it. Quite happy at the
moment not to be settled down too much and just taking life as it
comes. This does not amuse my parents very much.
I’m really good at

My accent. Though someone told me I've started sounding British,
not sure how to take that!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: Anything Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, or Martin
Scorcese related. I think the scene in the downstairs bar in
Inglorious Basterds is pure genius, one of the most underrated and
epic scenes in movie history. My favourite all time movie is a
German movie called Run Lola Run.
Food: Indian, Thai, Japanese, and Middle Eastern. Best part of
London is being able to find decent food joints where I can get
Books: I go through phases, at the moment been reading a lot of
biographies. At the moment reading Scar Tissue by Anthony
Music: Pretty eclectic, range from EDM to indie rock. Some of the
best live acts I have seen recently were The XX, Rolling Stones, Of
Monsters and Men, Steve Aoki, Shapeshifter (a kiwi band, look them
up), The Killers, Bastille, Sam Smith, Rudimental, and Disclosure.

I was in the school choir when I was 9, didn't know at the time but
I think in hindsight this was social suicide. At the time thought
it was the best way to have an extended lunch time!
I once met Keira Knightley and trying to impress her I told her she
was good in The Notebook (a movie I haven't seen and one she is
apparently not in). It was awkward.
I also think the concept of One Direction is genius and I wish I
came up with it.
