What does Toby Aromolaran do for a living?

Toby is a semi-pro footballer. Talking about his love of the game, Toby says: “I’ve played football since I was about six, but it’s really come into a new light for the past year since I joined a team called Hashtag United. They’re very social media focused. Everything is on YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. Playing with them has really made me fall in love with the game again.”

What is Toby looking for in a partner?

Well, as Toby hasn’t actually dated anyway one before he probably doesn’t entirely know. He is a chap who seems to see the brighter side of life.
