It is better you hold an opinion I disagree with than no opinion at all, unless you repeat it endlessly and without reason because that would be just plain annoying.
I believe truth requires greater strength than deception, that integrity cannot be bought and that things rarely are as they first appear. The exception here would be lions, tigers and the like, they are pretty much how they first appear and are better avoided.
Style is good, good style is better; in things always, in people sometimes though not in me. I am more, shall we say, practical in what I wear and am not overly concerned about how others perceive me, those that get to know me well seem to like what they find.
I’m good at making things, fixing things that are broken and occasionally breaking things that are fixed.
A few more things.
I read current affairs from newspapers and the web and have a fascination for obituaries. Art galleries are a regular treat, particularly some of the smaller ones, and I have a passion for photography.
The recent spate of brooding Scandinavian crime dramas on TV had me hooked, though sometimes just watching Bruce Willis blow stuff up can be quite entertaining.
I like different genres of music though tend towards the blues. Dancing can be fun, but line-dancing makes me want to reach for a bowling ball.
Although I like live music, I don't do festivals: camping in the rain, queuing for toilets, the all-pervading smell of damp dog; I'd rather be in a coffee house, sipping my way through newspapers while watching the people go by.
By way of outdoor stuff, most Sunday mornings I'm racing a sail-boat off Brighton beach. Being on the water is relaxing and knocks the world into a more sensible perspective. When not sailing, I'm usually cycling around Brighton or trampling through woods and across fields looking for things to photograph. Failing that I'm in the garden doing my weeds v flowers thing.
My sense of humour is pretty good though not in a slapstick way, it's more an exploration of the surreal and the absurd. Some people don't get my jokes. Actually, that's probably most people.
Since my last relationship ended I've been in limbo; sea-sawing gently through ambivalence, cynicism and frustration. Being alone can be good, but I've done that and now want to meet someone to share stuff with, to hang out, to go to gigs, to go walking, to look at pictures, that sort of thing.
You will be on the slim side of average (it's just a thing I have) and you are definitely going to need a sense of humour. A grasp of irony and the absurd will come in handy too.
Oh, one final thing: if you do send a message please don't use those smiley things or write LOL or describe yourself as 'bubbly'. I will run a mile.
