I don't mind if I find someone who ends up being a great friend but if I'm honest, I'm only on here with the intention of finding someone for a real relationship where we get to know each other, take it at our own pace and talk through any issues rather than argue.
Things in common would be a big plus but I'd be happy enough with a similar out look on life.
I'm an out doorsy science loving nerd with a fairly good job, a driving licence with the added bonus of being on track to buy a house on the next six to eight months. I'm calm and logical but caring and passionate. I've gotten to know myself over the years and am now ready to find someone decent with a mature attitude. It would be a little ironic to come this far and then remain on my own. If I'm honest I've grown somewhat accustom to being single. Seemingly comfortable just improving my own life and catching up with close friends now and again. Oddly I seem to forget I'm single and become too busy to look, suddenly I notice the calender and think, hasn't this last year gone fast. On the plus side I can now legally drive a car, although I have yet to buy one, as I'm still debating what sort to buy. I'm on track to have a mortgage most likely May-June of 2015 and things appear to be going reasonably well work wise I'm apparently an INTJ maybe with a hint of ENTP if for those of you who read that sort of thing. I don't agree with the description entirely as I make a point of at least attempting to overcome some of the deficiencies with my personality. People don't seem to write much about themselves on here and even fewer seem to respond to messages. I hope someone takes the time to read this. I've rewritten it a few times now.
You don't have to write me an essay, just say hello. I'm not going to be rude and ignore you. I look at peoples actions above the ways they look and I always give people a fair chance. After all I know I'm not the most physically attractive guy in the world. Yes I am aware this profile has become somewhat lengthy (again) I seem to rewrite it fairly regularly. As I'm sure you're aware even a "no sorry you're not my type" would be appreciated.
I should mention I'm quiet eccentric, not everyone’s idea of a perfect match.
I work as an administrator and I'm aiming toward getting myself a mortgage within the next year or two.
I enjoy cooking and I don't mind doing house work but I'm also good at DIY and repairing computers.
As far as music tastes go, I will listen to most things. I usually prefer mid-seventies to late eighties ballads but anything from classical through heavy metal and on occasion even pop music. I don't drink alcohol, smoke, take drugs or dance, never have never will, maybe slow dance at a push. (But I never suggested that)
I'm looking for someone decent. Basically someone who wants a relationship and is willing to work on it.
Intelligence is a turn on. A little sarcasm or a liking of music by Meatloaf, Bonjovi or queen would be a big plus but almost anything goes. I would say looks don't really influence my decision but I'd be lying. I generally avoid people to ware too much makeup or walk around in public dressed in cloths which would look at home on the set of a porn movie. I tend to remember certain films word for word. Apparently I can follow Primer without any issues.
For films virtually anything and everything goes. Far too many to list. Back to the future, Monty Python, Beetle Juice, The matrix, The Truman Show and The Rocky Horror Picture Show have been some of my favourites for years. But I will watch anything from romcoms to syfi to horror.
TV wise it tends to be game shows like millionaire, egg heads and QI but I like some of the older ones too. Bar that programs like Johnathan Creek, Blackadder, Red Dwarf, Stargate and lately Sherlock.
Games , when I find the time, puzzle and strategy usually. Something like Portal or Tomb raider or mahjong usually end up being payed to completion.
I can come across a little cold and logical at times but I'm a caring person deep down, I tend to go out of my way to help people who deserve it. As a result it can take a little while to get to know me fully. More than anything I'm looking for that rare thing that is someone who can fall for me. I'm holding out hope it's not a once in a life time event. As far as children go I don't mind if you have them already but I would rater not rule out the potential of having one or two of my own in the future. Although I would like to have a things reasonably stable before going down that route.
I don't ever give up, I don't give in, not completely unless there is absolutely nothing left to fight for. That goes for everything I'm passionate about not just relationships.
It often takes me weeks if not longer to learn someone name. I tend to get by one way or another.
I really enjoy sketching and writing but above all, all aspects of science although lately, as other things in my life have taken precedence, my interests have ceased to be somewhat of an obsession and become more of a hobby. I am not a great fan of sports per say, I tend to find most quite boring. Bowling snooker/pool, swimming I can do, maybe the odd badminton game. However I know very little and have even less interest in football and rugby.
I always reply if someone sends me a message. If you're local I don't mind meeting up, it's always nicer to talk face to face. In general I prefer calls over texts but I tend to find it easier to express myself in writing sometimes.
Anything you want to know just ask. I look forward to hearing from you.
This section seems a little superfluous considering I've not managed to find anyone willing to meet up yet but who knows.
I'm not really a dating kind of guy. I don't feel that comfortable in a busy pub or restaurant.
Somewhere quiet so we can have a chance to chat.
Perhaps a walk in the countryside or a light lunch somewhere.

If you want to add me on facebook to chat there instead you're quiet welcome to. All I ask is that you send me a message first and you don't simply send me game requests.
