Blind date. who is looking for the perfect partner this week
Matt 29, a climate change scientist from Balham, South London
Star sign: CAPRICORN
I travel a lot of my job. I go to meeting and conferences all over the world. It’s great for me, because I studied oceanography and environmental science at university. After university I spent a lot of time at sea on scientific research ships. Now I’m back in London, it’s much better for my social life. I have a lot of friends.
But I miss the sea, so, in summer, when I want to relax, I like going to the coast, and sometimes I spend the weekend camping with friends, having barbecues and diving or surfing. It’s great to get away from the city and go to a different world.
I also enjoy weekends in London. I like meeting friends, having a few beers, going to a football match. I’m an Arsenal fan. I sometimes go clubbing but not very often, and I love Indian food. I go to an Indian restaurant at least once a week.
Who is his perfect partner?
My perfect partner is outgoing, funny, and good to talk to. She dresses nicely, but isn’t too worried about fashion. Someone who enjoys having a good time in the city but also likes travelling, sports, and country life. This is very important to me.
