I have mostly liberal views and support progressive movements such as marriage rights and equality. At the same time, personality wise, I'm abit of an old fashioned romantic deep down and hold some conservative ideals when it comes to relationships and believe romance and monogomy is still alive and well in this crazy world (at least I'd like to think so!) Yes I applaud chivalry greatly and still believe in the saying, "ladies first," when it comes to things like entering a room or giving up my seat on the bus. I'm somewhat sentimental and definitely on the sensitive side and will readily admit that some forms of change I don't handle terribly well right away, but I get there in the end. I treasure memories dearly, and I'm young at heart. I've also been known to be abit of a dreamer. The smallest things can make me smile, and I often view crying as a sign of strength and releasing of emotions which many are afraid to do.
In terms of experiences, I went through a phase of my life when I tried the pub and bar scene, and although this didn't turn out terribly well at all, I soon discovered it wasn't for me and moved on to other things. Instead of looking back on things feeling disappointed, I'd rather hold my head high in optimism and be thankful for the experiences, good or bad.
Relationship wise I'm ideally looking for something long term, I honestly believe in fate and the idea of there being someone out there for everyone. I can't stand users, and I don't understand people who think it's cool to use each other for one thing only, to me that's upsetting, I've seen too many good people get hurt. Being a writer, I like to express my feelings and emotions in words no matter what mood I'm in, whether it be happy, sad or optimistic. I think truly great things are worth waiting for (such as true love) and the world is my oyster. As a line in my favourite movie (Dead Poets Society) says, "Seize the Day!"
I hate judgemental people, or those who place too much importance on small things to cover their own insecurities, be that in regards to friendships or relationships. Friendships and relationships are both gifts that we all crave, so I would much rather listen, learn and offer a shoulder to cry if need be rather than dwell on a person's past. We all have our own stories to tell, and I figure that as long as we're all moving forward, we'll be far better off as people and be able to help each other move on.
Well after all that...if you still fancy a chat, just drop me a line anytime!
I am creative, carefree, and courageous. Non smoker and light drinker.
Above all however, I'm just a normal guy who wants to find happiness and that someone special.
