Behavioural economist Dan Ariely argues:
"Online dating is, unremittingly miserable. The main problem is
that online dating sites assume that if you've seen a photo, got a
guy's inside-leg measurement and star sign, BMI index and electoral
preferences, you're all set to get it on à la Marvin Gaye, right?
Wrong. They think that we're like digital cameras, that you can
describe somebody by their height and weight and political
affiliation and so on. But it turns out people are much more like
wine. When you taste the wine, you could describe it, but it's not
a very useful description. But you know if you like it or don't.
And it's the complexity and the completeness of the experience that
tells you if you like a person or not. And this breaking into
attributes turns out not to be very informative"...
So i try to take more chances and hope the magic happens.

listening, talking, getting out and doing something new, playing

I have been quite lazy about music. I tend to use my friends
spotify playlists at the moment. However that is a pretty rich mix
including oldies, guilty pleasures and the broadest variety of new
Food...erm, just about everything. I mean it, whether it be
grasshopper or crocodile, anything goes, as long as it is done well
as opposed to well done. I love experimenting in the kitchen too. I
tried veganism. It's bloody hard work, congrats to all those who do
it full time.
