If you have no empathy for mental health issues then there is no point reading past this point but if you do you then please read on!
I have been accused of being opinionated with this profile when I am far from it! ANYONE who actually got to know the real me without judging me by words on a page or my profile picture would find that out. I am just honest and truthful about things. I am a very loving, sensitive, emotional man and I would rather be me than a lot of cold hearted people out there. Anyway.........
I am a single parent and have been since 1994. My kids are all grown up now! I am not working at the moment due to health problems! I don't drive or have a fancy home. I don't have much money but I have an heart of gold, plenty of love to give and Kids and Grand Kids who love me back so that makes me the richest man on earth! I am looking to meet a woman between the ages of 30 - 45.
I find it amusing that this website tries to define if someone will be my enemy or not? Websites like this may predict how well you will be a match/friend for someone (although people shouldn't go by every word said on someone's profile as one persons point of view on here can easily be misunderstood) I may be able to accept but enemies!? You have to get to know someone first before you make enemies of each other, a website CAN NOT define that! At the end of the day dating websites are all about luck and karma, just like life. What is meant to be will be! Anyway, that said, If I were to give you a shorter version of information about me it would be as my Twitter Bio says:
"Modest, Open Minded, Caring, Free Thinker, Writer/Poet, Atheist Peace Believer, Patriotic Englishman & Honest Single Dad/Grandad Who Understands Mental Health!"
A longer version would be..........
For ages now I have been trying to write a profile for dating websites correctly, worrying if I say the right thing or the wrong thing! Well is there a right way or a wrong way? I don't think there is so I have decided to just be me, honest and it is a case of take me or leave me!
I have a Son (who is 26, not living at home), a Daughter (who is 23, also not living at home), and a beautiful Granddaughter and Grandson.
I suffer from depression and anxiety. Mental Health is as important as any other health and it is not infectious! I was on a very high dose of anti depressants that turned me into a zombie but I chose freely to not be on them anymore. I can think straighter, I feel more alert and I have been trying hard to read self help books as an alternative. I have learned to love (and respect) myself for who I am so therefore I would like the woman I meet to be the same with me as well! I shall respect and love her back just the same!
I am not political as such, I am not religious (but do believe in spirituality and I like the peaceful ways Buddhism promotes. I don't think you need a "God" to believe in this! My faith and hope is in humanity!), I just can think for myself without the media, the Government and the NWO brainwashing me into what they think I should be thinking! I respect people's right to believe as long as mine is in not believing. That said if you are religious then I am NOT the man for you!
I am a open minded, young at heart, honest, respectful, caring, romantic, kind hearted, misunderstood, lovable kind guy. People like to confide in me they say I am good to be around! I have varied interests like writing poetry, stories etc., going on Twitter (mentioned above regarding bio!) whilst Blipping the tunes on Blip FM etc. I love animals and nature. I am a strong believer of peace and helping people understand mental illness. I like having a decent conversation. I am a passionate Birmingham City and England fan. I do love football but I know it isn't the be all and end all of life so I don't allow myself to get into petty arguments over it! I am also a passionate Englishman who wants to see the pride back in England once more without being labeled a racist! It is unfair! I like to go on my PC when I am not chilling or watching TV. I am fairly quiet but I have a good, cheeky, sense of humour! I have a varied taste in music and, as I said, I am not religious although I like the teachings of Buddha and I believe in Karma! Yes I am an atheist but I do respect anyone's PEACEFUL beliefs as long as they respect mine, even if we don't agree and besides it is often best to agree to disagree! As a peaceful man, I do not believe in wars or fighting and shall always have hope in my heart that the world will be a better place to live in for future generations! I would love to live somewhere quiet and stress free like the seaside or countryside and just be me! I have never been abroad but i would love to visit New York amongst other places! Still NEVER SAY NEVER hey?!
I'm not a wimp but I know the sort of man I am and I am not going to be all macho or false to please anyone! There are enough of those types on here already so if the pretty boy "He-Man" bloke is your type then good luck searching, move on! I know I am a good man, I am not afraid to show my feelings, I know I have an heart of gold and I hope some lovely lady will except I am what I am! I have two grown up children who have left home now and I am free to do as I please! I have two Dog's and one Cat. If you want to know anything else about me just ask me! Give me a chance and you might be surprised!
