Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I know my own mind and I am happy with who I am. After a long
marriage that ended in friendship, I now live alone at a house that
it has been a lifelong ambition to own. I can swing in my hammock
watching the birds in complete peace, nice.
I can smell clean air in the mornings and see the sunset in the
evening. The night sky is dark and the stars so very bright. I
appreciate the world around me and feel a sense of wonder at
nature, love to be able to see living things that most people only
see on TV or at the Zoo. I also have a big Malinois for company who
is a complete idiot. I enjoy intelligent conversation and good
company, not looking for a mother figure or another ex if I meet
somebody I get along with soon, great, if not I can wait .
Life is for living and I will have a go at most things, the only
limits we really have are those we impose upon ourselves so there
are few things I won't try..
I dress for any occasion and depending on the circumstances I could
be wearing jeans or a suit, I have a lot of leather jackets in
different styles as I like to wear them. I am not a fan of the
unwashed, I like my showers and I am really put off by stale body
odours. I do a lot of work on my property and get pretty messy
sometimes but I clean up afterwards!!
I'm also quite well travelled, been to lots of places across europe
and indonesia, I do like to soak up new cultures, but I can't see
the point of going to a place and sitting in a bar just like the
one at home, eating the same food etc
I love to see new sights be they buildings, landscapes, people or
I also love strong coffee, I like the occasional glass of a good
wine, not a beer drinker unless its hot, never smoked.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
moving forward, new things, new activities, new people. I'm not
someone taken to living in the past on old memories, there is too
much to do and so short a time to do it in. Have a lot of work to
do on my property and I'm gradually getting it done.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Physical things, artistic things and logical things. I can put my
mind and skills to many activities. i love to work with wood to the
extent that I rescue logs from the fire in order to make things
from them. I have an artistic nature but a scientific mind.
Photography, portraits, special moments.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can look a bit intense, confident. My mind frequently works on
more than one train of thought at a time.
I have warm soft hands, no idea why, considering how often I'm
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
If I watch TV it is either for information on how to do something
or for escapism. I like Sci -fi films and TV Stargate and TNG but
also things that I can learn from like nature or craft docos. I
like most forms of music with a preference for Blues/guitar/rock
but not the crazy heavy metal stuff or anything that sounds like
someone blowing a big horn in a giant shed-thats what it sounds
like when kids have their earplugs turned up too loud on the
Very wide tastes for food, again I love to try things particularly
spicy food. I do actually like to cook but not fancy stuff that
looks like a squirt of paint on a lego block in the middle of a
I have a lot of photography books, I like portrait work, Hamilton,
Cartier Bresson and Bailey, plus any classic images from the 20s
through to the 60s
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
hope, faith, determination, friendship and communication. I know
that is five but I was trying to figure out how to add my camera,
lenses and computer as one item-going to say "imaging gear"
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The natural world around me, what my next picture will be of, the
people I care about.
I avoid thinking at length on any item or subject which I can do
nothing to influence or change at this time.
I think about long term things and the universe around me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually ready for a change, something to interest the mind and feed
the soul. I have a very active job with a lot of multi-tasking, I
will give just about anything a go.
In the summer maybe the hammock for a while.
One thing I do when at home is make a curry which has become a bit
of a regular item over the years.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I avoid organised religion, not really that private but it is
important to me, I have beliefs based on a more Pagan philosophy.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in a quality conversation, think deeply, enjoy
humour and find the world an interesting place. Enjoy visiting new
places and revisiting older places. If you feel that spark of a
kindred spirit and want to know more. You would need to be
physically fit and quite athletic, I can keep up with pretty active
people so I am not a couch potato fan.
