My self-summary
Hi! My name's Will. Obligatory disclaimer regarding being crap at writing things about myself, but here goes anyway: I'm a fun, outgoing guy who's looking for someone special to share good times with -- someone who'll like me for me. I'm genuine and sincere, and I'd like to think I'm caring and affectionate. End ramble.
What I’m doing with my life
At the moment, I'm a residential French and boarding tutor in a state boarding school. I enjoy my job and I'm pretty happy with it at current. It has its drawbacks though - living in the same building as lots of teenagers is probably the biggest!
I’m really good at
Speaking French, and not much else! I'm decent at playing the piano, and I can talk about language for hours, and I'm pretty good at impressions and voices, but other than that I'd like to think I'm good at making people laugh. :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
Perhaps the fact that I'm quite big (i.e. tall, and also big-built) and very, very loud and chatty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: too many to name, but a lot of French literature (Stendhal, Flaubert, Gide, Proust); Dickens, Wilde, Eliot; Wordsworth, Keats, Kipling and Tennyson.

Movies: Amélie, Paris je t'aime, The Dark Knight, Gladiator, Casino Royale.

Shows: Doctor Who, Derren Brown, The Crystal Maze, Fort Boyard, University Challenge (I was on that!), Only Connect, The Chase, most other quizzes.

Food: Many different cuisines, but particularly Chinese, Indian, French and Italian.
The six things I could never do without
Family, pets, friends, my iPhone, travel and whisky.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of human existence and life (sounds pretentious, but true); where I'm going and what I'd like to do with my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with family, which is very important to me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can be a bundle of insecurities sometimes. I guess we all can, though.
You should message me if
1) you like what you read above (in which case, are you feeling quite alright?!)

2) you want to ask me something (anything at all - I really don't mind!)

3) you're bored (I can sustain a conversation about most things)

4) any combination of the above :-)
