I am a Practical, Dreamer who is a Realist and a Idealist (yeah some of those words are contradictory, but I often think people are a mass of contradictory drives that somehow work). I am an easy going down to earth guy with a live and let live attitude (although Love/Hate say it better) who calls things as he sees them and who trusts his instincts. I very often take the path of least resistance mainly as I often don't mind helping out, although if I am really against something I can be very stubborn. I am not perfect, what I am is flawed, imperfect, real and honest. I make mistakes but can discuss it and if I'm wrong I can admit it, apologise and learn from my mistakes. I really do believe that when I set my mind to things I can achieve just about anything I aim for, the last two years have been a period of great change and achievement for me physically, emotionally and academically and I am looking for that positive change to continue. I have just completed my retraining for an new career, which I am looking forward too. I am happy and content with my life as it stands and am in no hurry to change it, that said part of having a positive approach to life is being open to fortuitous happenstance.
I currently moving to Carlisle but still work in Dumfries and spend a lot of time up in Glasgow and in the Lakes visiting friends. I've lived all over the country from my previous career and can sometimes be found taking road trips to go and see then in weird and wonderful parts of the UK. I have my new career which I love (even if some aspects frustrate me) and lets me make a positive difference in peoples lives (well hopefully at least). I've been single for a while due to moving around a lot because of work/re-training/finding a new job in my new field and think it would be nice to meet someone on the same wavelength. I am friendly, outgoing and and very laid back.
