I enjoy intellectual conversation. Anything that causes me to look at the world or my own life in a new and interesting way. Something to ponder while I drink my fourth cup of english tea.
I've been called an old soul, which is probably just a nice way to say I'm an old man stuck in a young man's body. I enjoy finding any excuse to wear a vest and cufflinks.
I'm a very odd combination of people. I love dressing fancy, but I can't deny my ridiculous side either. I consider myself a gentleman.
I think a lot of people are on this site to find an exact replica of themselves. I don't think two people need to share every interest in their lives to be a good match. All you have to do is respect that my interests and hobbies are important to me, and I'll do the same for you.
Besides, seeing the world from two different viewpoints makes for much better conversation / debates / arguments!
Oh, and I don't actually have a beard. I just get scruffy and that's when people decide to take pictures of me.
