If you read my headline with a Seinfeld undertone, we're off to a good start.
I just finished my articles, will be called to the bar in June and start as a corporate lawyer in September. Between now and then I intend to do a lot of travelling and meet some great people, hence my motivation to reactive this long dormant account. When did they introduce the describe your personality in one word function? My answer feels pretentious, but sadly most accurate within the given choices.
Outside of work my hobbies include running, biking, beach volleyball, golf and pretty much any sport anyone suggests. Getting up to a cottage with a group of friends is my version of bliss, especially if there are a copious amount of board games.
I used to do stand-up comedy and hope to find some opportunity to get back into it. My other incredibly nerdy passion is pub trivia (or trivia in general). Yes, I have a team, yes we are competitive, and no you are not the only one to roll their eyes at the combination of trivia and boasting. I'm a self-proclaimed dork and proud of it.
What I'm looking for in a partner is someone who is incredibly ambitious in their career yet is not defined by it. They are not looking for someone to be their life, but rather be a complement to it. I would describe myself (and most of my very good friends) as people who take their work incredibly seriously, but not themselves... professional kids if you will. Ideally our conversations would be incredibly dry... preferably consisting of extended sarcastic dialogue as we try to hold off and wait for the other to break. To be perfectly candid, if you have an inability to laugh at yourself, I'm probably not the right person for you. If you can readily laugh at yourself, please message me... it would be great to chat.
I'm open to anything, but I've typically resorted to the cliche coffee, drinks or dinner. If you can suggest something active... all the better. For me a great sign of a first date is after a couple of hours I have to ask myself "what did we just talk about" because the conversation organically evolved into incredibly random and (ideally) foolish topics.
