Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
'Ello. *waves* A few random words to describe me from my friends to
start things off: geek, shy, cute, clever.
I enjoy being in other people's company, be it down the pub or
around someone's house. I tend to gravitate towards geeky things,
and like going to the cinema (all sorts of stuff, trying to
challenge myself more), gaming, television and so on.
I am a bit of an introvert, but I'm slowly learning how to come out
of my shell better so if I am quiet and awkward it's not always for
too long. And god help you if you get me talking about something
I'm passionate about... ;)
I can have a bit of a mean streak at times, which tends to come out
in my sense of humour. I do believe that you can truly tell you're
comfortable around another person when you can take the piss out of
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in Actuarial, which involves lots of calculations and
spreadsheets and stuff. It's challenging, but it's at least more
interesting than jobs I've had in the past. Other than that there's
just the ongoing concern of trying to figure this whole 'life'
thing out ;). Not that I'm complaining too much; keeps things from
getting old ;).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Random, rambling conversations. Stupid jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Generally either how tall I am, or my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: My favourite authors are Neil Gaiman, Warren Ellis and Terry
Pratchett. The Sandman makes me want to believe in magic. 1984 is
scary in its relevancy, even today. The Hitchiker's Guide To The
Galaxy should go without saying.
Movies: The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of those things I can
see myself revisiting every year or so for the rest of my life. The
Shawshank Redemption is just a fantastic, amazing, uplifting film.
The Avengers is the purest distillation of a superhero comic into a
film out there, and a staggering achievement. Requiem For A Dream
is an absolutely amazing film that I will never, ever watch
Shows: Love Joss Whedon's writing, so Buffy, Angel, Firefly and
Dollhouse (and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is shaping up nicely). The
Simpsons and Futurama were great in their heydays. For some
homegrown comedy you can't go wrong with Father Ted, The Thick Of
It or Red Dwarf. Breaking Bad was just the best drama I've ever
seen. And Doctor Who. Why wasn't Doctor Who on here already?
Music: Mainly indie/alt rock, though there's generally good stuff
to be found in any genre if you look hard enough. Let's play the
'next five songs on shuffle' game: No Fit State - Hot Chip;
Somebody's Calling Me - LCD Soundsystem; In Your World - Muse;
(Stranded On) The Wrong Beach - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds;
Dots And Dashes (Enough Already) - Silversun Pickups. Yeah, that's
a pretty good cross-section.
Food: I'm a man of simple tastes mainly. Chocolate, pizza, burgers,
pasta. Nothing beats a good Sunday roast. A steak done just right
is my idea of heaven.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Phone (now handily combining music and net access into one
Something to read
A nice, comfy bed
Something to fiddle with
Err... something else
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything. My mind doesn't like to stay in one spot
for very long, and will take long rambles, veer off on insane
tangents and generally leave me wondering how it got to where it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Winding down from the week. Whether this means staying in and
relaxing or going out for a few drinks (and then usually on to a
club) depends on the kind of week it's been ;).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Half of the time when I hear or see the word blood, I whisper 'I'll
get it!' to myself in an imitation of Nanny from the Count Duckula
