My self-summary
Hi. :-) I'm Mike. I'm told I'm alright.
What I’m doing with my life
Came to Bristol for uni, liked it, stayed. I just switched career from professional services to software engineering, which is exciting and scary.

I like philosophy, politics, and home economics, swimming, walks reading, bouldering, slacklining, cooking, reading, tabletop games and laughing.

Geek, veggie, left-wing, laid-back, friendly.

I’m really good at
Making people laugh. OK, amusing myself. But sometimes it amuses other people, too. Told I'm easy to get on with and a good confidant.

I'm quite analytical. Good at maths, language (singular), critical thinking and with computers. I'm fairly competitive and enjoy sport / games a lot.

I can be very focused and driven when something piques my interest.
The first things people usually notice about me
Either that I'm quiet and reserved or that I'm very outspoken, opinionated, and sarcastic or that I'm super competitive. Depends what sort of mood or context I'm in or what people I'm around I suppose. We all have our masks.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, Phillip K. Dick, Chuck Pahlaniuk, Stephen King, George R R Martin.

Directors: Alfred Hitchcock, Stanley Kubrick, Quentin Tarantino, the Coen Brothers, Christopher Nolan.
Films: Amelie, Brazil, Being John Malkovitch, Blade Runner, Fight Club.
Silly films: Airplane!, Blazing Saddles, The Princess Bride, Naked Gun, Rocky Horror, Hot Fuzz etc.

TV: 30 Rock, Arrested Development, Black Books, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Family Guy, Futurama, Peep Show, Spaced
Comedy panel shows.
The Wire, Firefly, Dollhouse, Buffy, Game of Thrones.

Music: Classical, jazz, classic rock/metal, punk, ska, modern British rock/indie, and electronica.

Food: Well, I'm a vegetarian. Mexican and Mediterranean food. Vegetables stuffed with other vegetables?
The six things I could never do without
Friends, home cooking, exercise, reading, games, music.
You should message me if
You think I'm interesting and would like to get to know me.

Big pluses for: being funny, having hobbies, keeping fit, liking sport and games (tabletop/PC), having good book and DVD collections, vegetarianism.

If we're talking dating, I think trait #1 I'd look for is positivity. Closely followed by intellectual curiosity and a compatible attitude/worldview.
