Not got your pulse racing?
OK, lets add, I’m both younger and taller than: George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise and in the same school year as Daniel Craig.
Never mind, keep reading, it might get better …
Having worked with homeless and also having lived and lectured on a luxury cruise-liner, I’m confident relating to be people from a huge variety of cultures and from a wide range of social backgrounds. People seem at ease in my company and I can fit in at just about any social situation.
I love travelling and I’ve visited over 100 different countries and every continent, including Antarctica (four years living on a cruise-liner tends to make things like this easier). There are still plenty of other places I’d like to see, but I've always found travelling far more satisfying if you have someone to share the experiences and create memories with.
When at home, you’ll find me in a country pub joking and swapping friendly banter with my friends and generally laughing and grinning like the Cheshire Cat. I also really enjoy a weekend break to “olde worlde” cities, country towns (I love the lake district), coastal resorts (I also love the sea) or simply visiting old friends.
I’m reasonably well educated and once went through a phase of collecting qualifications (I have three degrees - which proves that I really am exceptionally inntelligan ... erm .. intteliggen ... erm ... brainy). I still like to read popular science books and watch documentaries, particularly about physics and cosmology.
I’m not a massive sports fan, but will watch any televised Liverpool football match; oh, and during the olympics, I developed an inexplicable fascination with beach volleyball.
I don’t tend to go clubbing as much as I used to, but I can still strut my “funky stuff” on the dance floor. After a bit of Dutch-Courage, I can sometimes be persuaded to have a go at karaoke (and after a lot of Dutch-Courage I can sometimes be persuaded to stop).
Above all, I hate to see anyone I care about needlessly upset and will go out of my way to comfort them and offer whatever help I can. I’m extremely lucky to know many people who have proven that they’ll do the same for me.
PS: I only said it might get better.
