Lonely hearts: Angus Brown

Looking for love? Let The Tab introduce you to Bristol’s most eligible singletons. This week, meet Angus Brown.


Angus Brown

Angus Brown. A mass of curious contradictions.  Sensitive rugby player.  Illogical physicist.  Sad joker. 


This multi-faceted Bristol student is still searching for that missing piece to his heart’s jigsaw.

If his faded vintage clothes, Mussolini moustache and childlike zest for life don’t win you over, well, you probably don’t have a soul.

Talented sportsman

Angus in fact played a crucial role in Bristol University’s win over UWE in 2012’s Varsity match.  He stole the show as water boy, ensuring that the team were hydrated so they could bring victory home.  Since those heady heights he has now retired from the game to concentrate on charity work, (he has already apparently started on Movember), but still manages to support UBRFC by attending their Wednesday night socials.

Work hard, play hard

Angus, like all of us, makes the occasional mistake. After a couple of hiccups here and there with the odd exam, and a few re-sits later, Mr Brown is now flying high and has found a perfect balance of “work hard, play hard.”  After this ordeal, Angus has decided to show his dedication to his subject by taking the role of physics social secretary. As he skilfully manages to organise all those crazy science activities from the comfort of his armchair, without once attending a meeting, nobody can question his passion for making physics fun.


Now ready to be in a serious and full time relationship, Angus (Ange for short) asserts that when he finds that one special lady, he’ll do everything he can to keep her happy. He reveals something of the ‘Ange’ approach to courtship: “I don’t believe in taking a girl out for dinner, or paying for all her drinks, that’s just false. I need her to fall in love with me for me.

“I want her to be in the bosom of my life, not to be expecting gifts and holidays. That’s why my ideal woman will want to be part of my life, not take over it. She will sit with me whilst I play FIFA, not expect me to stop playing to take her out.”

This is a small but tantalising taste of the great Angus Brown.  If what you’ve read touches a chord or pulls on at least one of your heart strings, perhaps you’d like to date Angus?
