My self-summary
Hello! I'm Rob, let me tell you a bit about myself...

I'm an English guy who has been living in Shanghai for three years. It's a great city, and I'm looking for a companion to help me to enjoy the place to its fullest (well, amongst other things!).

There’s nothing quite like seeing new places and immersing yourself in different cultures, and I’ve not done nearly enough of it. I love to travel, and there is a vacancy for the role of Travel Partner!

I love food! I want to enjoy what I eat, so I really like going to good restaurants, and another dining companion never goes amiss - I still have plenty of dinner venues to rate in Shanghai. I really enjoy cooking, although I still need a cookbook by my side. I hold amongst my many achievements the first place award in a cheesecake-making competition! Ok, so there were only two other cheesecakes, but still...

I am a bloke and I like football - I can't help it! But I'm not a football thug and genuinely love it for being the beautiful game. I enjoy watching it, either on the telly or in a stadium, and also play when I can.

Guilty pleasures:
Karaoke (not had nearly enough KTV action!)
Singing along to my (badly played) guitar
Slush Puppies
Tesco Strawberry Trifle
Smelly cheese

Pet peeves:
Intentional misspelling of words, and most aspects of text speak
The Daily Mail and Daily Express

Admissions:
The last episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air brought a tear to my eye. Twice.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a maths teacher. It's bloody hard work, but I love it! Kids are so much more fun to work with than adults!
I’m really good at
As a maths teacher I guess I've got to put maths in here!

I'm a good socialiser - I get on well with people, and like spending time with friends.

I'm told I'm a good singer!
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile and laugh a lot! (and probably use a few too many exclamation marks!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A flavour of my tastes:
Last album listened to: Embrace - The Good Will Out
Currently reading: Song of Ice and Fire (the Game of Thrones thing)
Next DVD I think I'm going to watch: Napoleon Dynamite
The six things I could never do without
"Think outside the box", it says. Well no. The things I can't live without are pretty standard, so there!
On a typical Friday night I am
with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well then it wouldn't be private, would it?!
You should message me if
you're looking for something special and you want to enjoy trying to find it!
