Ok, I'm not quite an empath, for all my flaws, but my BS detector is primed and honed and I know how to spell holistick.
By day I own my own web consultancy. I consult those who don't know and write stuff for those that think they do. Newspapers, broadsheets, you name it - I've not (yet) done it.
On the side, I co-write a screenplay drama. It's becoming a little more than a side, too. We're at the negotiation stages and it's a steep learning curve and a little bit exciting.
Loves: slightly burned omelettes and scrambled eggs with cheese; parenthesis, malbec, capers (& natural order}, a good single malt, keeping fit and stimulating debate: bring it on!
Loathes: platitudinous profiles drenched in bromide, squashed by asexual sumo wrestlers whence' every nuance and cadence and quirk of individuality wretchedly admonished...
Me: 6ft 3' tall, confident, witty, solvent, open-minded, down to earth guy with agreeable kinks and pleasing quirks. Consistently told I'm not as arrogant as I might appear and better looking in the flesh. I'm not sure if that's a compliment but it's what I'm regularly told.
I'm effusive and comfortable in my own skin but if you're looking for someone to tow life's line and not question the status quo, please move on.
I'm not looking to jump into anything intense; I have very busy, well-rounded life - just like you! - but I am open to someone sharing it with me. I'm traditional like that. But if it doesn't pan out, you might make a great, fun, vanilla friend.
I slightly allergic to profiles that have evidently been pulped in saltpeter, hosed down in bromide, squashed by asexual sumo wrestlers and every nuance and cadence and quirk of individuality admonished by the charily dismissive hand of a lifetime membership of the bourgeois establishment.
I'm fairly down to earth, perhaps more than my profile suggests (at least that's what I'm regularly told!) and just a little bit different from the maddening crowd, as my more generous friends might say.
Career wise, I've had my own web consultancy for 12 years, comprising of business consultancy, training and it's going very, which allows me time to pursue other interesting other things, too - well-rounded, me! I'm also a freelance features writer and have just finished co-writing a sit-com & & TV dramaa that we hope will be commissioned next year. I also do a little adult-Ed on the side, too.
I'm seeking a vibrant female counterpart bachelorette: an insouciant contemporary Bettie Page with heart and soul; a renaissance woman who'll stimulate my heart and mind. Who prefers sudoko over suits; wine over whining; beach over bitching, lie-ins' over lying; partying over pastry-making; road-trips over housework; the gym over hymns, talking over texing... Ok, you get it! Move on, move on...
Oh, and I like photography.
I also keep a poetry blog, if you're THAT interested.
