Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Alan, 47 years old and just popped in for a look around. If
it looks promising I'll stay, however if it's like all the others
and stuffed full with women with their heads up where the sun don't
shine then I'll be making a swift exit!
With that said, this is me: I live in Stroud, Gloucestershire. I
have my own house and also live with my fourteen year old daughter.
She generally stays with her Mum at the weekends. We also have a
very lazy cat.
To earn a crust I operate a minicoach for private hire work which
gets me out of the area on a regular basis and I have a good client
base who tend to want to go to interesting places.
No doubt if you've checked out my photos you will have seen my
weekend 'toy', a Mustang car. I think of it as my reward for my
labours and take it out to club meetings and other shows if the
weather's vaguely decent. I don't smoke and stopped drinking nearly
twenty five years ago, so spend my money on that instead. I also
like photography and have been doing it since I was about
Why am I here? Well, I'd been in a nigh on twenty year
relationship/ marriage and was cheated on. A long and quite sad
story but I've come out very much on top. I'm no 'God Botherer' but
I swear someone was looking down on me!
Needless to say, I detest with a passion cheats, liars and
Who would I like to meet? Is the archetypal English Rose asking too
much? Ideally someone around my own age, but that said I would
rather someone in their mid-thirties with a mature outlook than
someone in their mid-forties desperately trying to behave like
their teenage kids. Err....No! I do have to say that I do not find
large or heavily built women very attractive. I'm reasonably slim
and am looking for the same. If you have a scroll through my
'Questions' I think you will get a good idea of what I'm after and
it's certainly not one night stands, f..k buddies etc, etc. I'm
sure you get the picture!
If you like what you see and read, then say hello. It would be
great to hear from you!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a 'micro' business doing mini-coach hire. Other than that
I'm Dad to my 14 year old daughter.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I need a think about this one! I could be conceited and say
everything but that's fibbing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like a very wide selection of music types. Just can't stand this
R'n'B stuff! Food wise, roast beef and Yorkshire pud every time!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughter, my comfy home and bed, a fast car (never been without
one of those!), my daft cat and this computer thing to find you on!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Probably best not to know!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Generally working! It's when I make my money!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
..... is something that's not going in here!
