Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hmm how do I sum myself up?
I'm an open minded young chap called Alex who likes to relax and
chill out (without sounding too early 90s).
I have rather eclectic tastes in lots of things, particularly
films, music, books. and video games I like learning about history
and archaeology too (unfortunately you can't do a degree in playing
video games (if you can please show this to me).
I'm quite a talkative person and loud person, but I like to think
that I try to be conscientious when I first meet someone - I might
seem very normal when you first meet me (other than the hair), but
the more I get to know someone the odder the things that come out
of my mouth become. In a good way (if being dark and jokey and
generally saying pretty grim things is good?)
I also love being able to nerd out about stuff with other people,
and share in the geekdom - particularly with films, but I think I
can hold up a conversation about most things, not matter how
I like socialising and a good drink now and then, and I also follow
a few sports, although I save any nerdiness about them for people
willing to listen.
All in all, I'm young and fun and I give AMAZING hugs (or glomps,
if you like glomping)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've graduated from university, and I used all the wisdom, insight
and life experience I got from doing that to continue to do admin
cover work in the NHS. I've managed to work my way up from data
inputter though to something that pays a little better ^_^
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a bit of a jack of all trades me. I do give good back and foot
massages (in case Tarantino is looking for a tubby brit for his
next film ;)
I'm can play guitar (poorly) and bass (less poorly), so don't
expect any serenading (unless you want your ears to bleed or you
really, really like Superstition by Stevie Wonder)
Some of my more useless talents involve playing video games,
partlicularly games from 10 years ago that no one cares about any
more (Crash Bandicoot, if I could I would marry you). I also have a
pretty encyclopedic knowledge of some TV series (such as South
Park, which I have quoted randomly and excessively around friends
to the point that they don't like watching it any more), and also
Game of Thrones (I've read the books too)
Yes I know I'm a lazy nerd, but that brings me onto my biggest
talent - lazing around and chilling out. Particularly with other
I'm also quite good at not being able to drink milk :(
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My curly hair! It is big, large, fluffy, floppy and wiry. It is
wonderful and totally not a through back to the disco 70s...
Either that or my ability to hug or make innuendos out of anything
(that latter one depends how drunk/hyperactive I am, and also on
how many close friends are near)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Hmm well I like lots of things (even though I can be very critical
of art, particularly films I can find it very hard to let go of
problems or errors with the film (Iron Man 3 is a very good
examploe of this). Here's a list of shit that I like from books,
tv, film, graphic novels etc:
Game of Thrones (and the books)
This is England
ANY TARANTINO FILM EVER
The Hurt Locker
Lord of the Rings
Harry Potter (the books, can't stand the films I just want to face
fist Daniel Radcliffe, the short jammy twat)
Archer (danger zone?)
As to music, I think Rumours by Fleetwood Mac is my favourite
album, which is a bit of cheesy choice but fuck it, it's good. I
love Blood Mountain by Mastodon and Led Zeppelin by, err, Led
Zeppelin. Also Random Access Memories by Daft Punk, not sure if
that's me just going on with the hype or whether I genuinely like
it (I like all of Daft Punk's album mind - time will tell).
Musically I'm quite into Rammstein at the moment, but I like bands
Alice in Chains
The Beatles (duh)
Less than jake
Reel Big Fish
Also the Juno film soundtrack
The Black Keys
Wow my tastes are way more alternative than I thought they were. I
will dance to club stuff mind, just need copious amounts of alcohol
Also, I spend free time on Steam. I play lots of games, but
primarily L4D2 and other similar source games and Total War games,
but i dabble in League of Legends too. If anyone wants a game I'm
happy to oblige.
Contrary to the lazy things that I largely like to do, I also like
leaving the house and doing things like everyone else! I like fine
dining (look at my tummy, for goodness' sake!), long walks in the
country side, going to gigs (particularly rock and metal, but I
like electronic, jazz, blues, lots of stuff), and also a good night
out (although I prefer the drinking part where you might be able to
sit down and hold a conversation at a tolerable volume, as opposed
to having to pay to get in or put your coat anywhere, overpriced
drinks and watching skinnier younger prettier than you have a
funner time than you're having).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
.... My right hand??
But seriously - it's very useful I use it to write and stuff
Well I assume answering stuff like 'water' and 'food' goes without
saying, but I honestly don't think I need six things constantly in
Yes my computer with access to the internet is very nice but I
think I could live without it.
My bass guitar, again is very sexy when clean but when the strings
need changing and there's dust between the pickups and the strings
and you can't reach it because you have sausage fingers well then I
just want to put the damn thing down :(.
I suppose I'm going to fuck the police and chose one thing that I
want and that's access to music - often if I'm thinking something
through or my emotions are running high, I find music either helps
deal with or contextualise my problems - so it makes me feel much
However I know that I need access to the internet for that so I
suppose that I'd have to include that too - and with all the perks
that comes with ^_^
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
LOTS of things - my mind wanders a lot - I find it hard to focus,
but I really enjoy exploring where my thoughts lead me, whether
good or bad. I over analyse things (particularly people on the
radio or films/tv shows LOTS. My family find this very annoying (I
like to think it's because I'm right most of the time).
So I often think about, well, stories - whether I've found them in
films, or books, or video games, and my mind often wonders onto
something i've experienced - fictitious or not - and it can mash
the two together.
So this often ends up with me making my own plots in my head but
with influences from different places. I've got like 15 stories in
my head at the moment? But I haven't written much down (gotta love
I also think about normal stuff, like whether clouds of dragon
people living in them and they use that as their primary mode of
transport, and that they're polluting the world with oxygen,
allowing us in turn to thrive, whilst also explaining why many
cultures in history have had obsessions with dragons.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Currently this is house cleaning night -_-
This needs to change.
I like going to the pub, cinema, for a meal, but I love going out
to a gig and rocking it up and moshing if there is a chance
But the alt scene is a bit shit in Hertfordshire from my
Sometimes I just like to stay in and shoot the breeze, and think
about how stars are actually unwanted teddy bears, and they're
actually organising themselves in an assault on the earth,
unilaterally and simultaneously to punish all the rotten
(I'm safe I still have all my teddy bears)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have re-evaluated this area most. After deciding that I have no
filter and have had a few way too open things shared in this
section, I think I'm just gonna talk about something else, like did
you know that there was once a chicken who lived for eightenn
months without a head, and that prince charles is actually a
But what is even greater is my fear that these two will one day
interbreed and combine to make the most frightening creature
Huh I suppose that could be classified as something i'm willing to
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for someone to chill out with and be nerdy with,
watching films and tv shows or just talking about general nerdy
shit. Also if you hit a topic I'm super interested in I can talk
forever about it - just tell me if I'm boring you cause my head
likes to soak up useless information like a monkey soaks up....
monkey juice (there's got to be a better analogy....) Also if you
like bantering and talking shite for the sake of it. Also also if
you like having a good time out partying or gigging, or country
side walks? Also also also video games. I play them. Steam.
Also message me if you want to capture a dragon person and ride
