Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Large, intellectual but quiet and shy man who, in his own (very)
humble opinion, has a rather good sense of humour, and is known to
have a few surprises up his sleeves. I have been described by a few
people as; polite, charming, well mannered (their words, not
Dependable in many situations, I am that shoulder to cry on, I
listen to your worries and offer my help (and if I can't solve your
problems I can at least offer my love)! It is fair to say that I am
a good listener.
I have worked with many and can tolerate all sorts of people
(except racists, fundamentalists and other bigots; Nick Griffin
stay away!), if you throw things at me they just bounce off! It
takes a lot to get me worked up! Despite my atheism I am tolerant
of peoples beliefs (as long as you do not try to convert me; please
do not message me saying I will go to Hell, you are on the wrong
There are no emotional ties in my life: No girlfriends (nor
boyfriends) , no wife or former partners; no kids (anywhere); my
mates are just my mates; my family lives elsewhere; my parents are
no longer with us; not even any pets; There is, however room for
you! *(sings "Lonely, ever so lonely....")*
Ideally I would like to meet someone who has the intelligence to
string sentences together without the use of swearwords (I do not
like people who have to have the F word in every sentence, or as I
call it; symphony in F), I also do not like chavy behavior (Vicky
Pollard need not apply)! Looks, race and size do not matter, it is
the personality I go for; someone who can accept me for what I am
(and I can accept you); someone who can keep me on my toes (but
without being domineering). Marital status and kids are also not
important (but I do not wish to break up any relationship!). But
don't worry if you are shy, and cannot get your words out; once you
get to know me...
Geeks are most welcome! (As are; Emos, Goths, Shy, Quiet,
intellectuals, atheists, etc....)
I like it when you wear T-shirts, jeans, trainers, and no makeup! I
find makeup hides the natural beauty in people.
And now the serious bit!
