Been in a London for a while now, but still retain a little of the country mouse about me. :) Enjoy fairly intellectual pursuits and am a big reader and podcast consumer.
My hobbies are Brazilian jiu jitsu; which is wonderful, so much to learn, so many mysteries for me to work out. Also do a bit of yoga, the token inflexible male at a yoga class. Into meditation but avoid the new age stuff that seems unfortunately attached to it.
Also enjoy travelling a great deal; I've studied in Hong Kong, travelled round South East Asia and have spent a year in Latin America, being a unwilling castaway on an island for three weeks was a highlight! I also greatly enjoy gigs alongside good films and books(obviously don't enjoy bad ones!) also infrequently dabble in stand up.
If I could describe myself, I'd say I'm a pretty upbeat guy with a good sense of humour who enjoys doing new things. Extroverted and enjoy the company of others but need time to myself as well. Also quite introspective, probably to a fault, but think that I have a good handle on myself.
I also bet you a drink I can make you smile :-)
Practicing and loving Brazilian jiu jitsu, which to the untrained eye looks like two men rolling around the floor in a sweaty embrace, which is exactly correct 😊 but it's also a whole lot more than that.
Job wise working as a financial analyst and maintaining above average Excel skills.
Music: Beck, The National, Belle and Sebastian, Brian Eno, Blur, Bowie
Food: Anything considered chopstick food.
More interesting is why you like these things rather than what they are. Better
done in person 😊
Friends and family.
