Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Happy go lucky chap with a 5 year old boy, Leo who I love to bits..
happy to try pretty much anything, .. love to do experience
things.. currently trying to sort out some microlight flying :-) ..
Love walking .. Have a particular affection for the peaks and can
be found at the top of mam tor with a tired 5 year old (probably on
my shoulders by that point !) on frequent occasion.
Enjoy a nice drink with friends or just slobbing on the sofa with a
film on .. Play a bit of badminton and enjoy playing a bit of
drums.. although these days its a spare room thing rather than in a
pub covered in beer :-) love to spend evenings singing my heart out
with someone to dodgy 80's classics lol (don't be too put off by
that.. I do other decades too :-))
Have recently started to enjoy photography and so often bore people
with my new found understanding of terms like 'depth of field' lol
Love a nice meal and a good yabber .. didn't used to be much of a
cook but since having Leo am a demon with a recipe book :-) Love
genuine people with real opinions on things .. Hate it when people
live their life through a front.. life is too short not to be you I
Not religious but enjoy a good debate with my brother who is
Bit of a science geek at times and need a slap when I go off on one
about something sciency .. (Ask my mates they will know what I mean
Guess thats about it as a starter for 10 .. feel free to give me a
shout if you want to know more..
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Hmmm .. what am I doing with my life.. it's a good question which
makes me think .. what AM I doing with my life...Well I suppose
when pushed to answer the question I'm trying to give my son the
right values and bring him up as best as I can.. I have realised in
a big way that life is for living.. perhaps its the 40 thing, so
expect to see me on a big motorbike in these parts soon.. trying to
live well and be independently happy.. because a wise goblin once
told me that only you can make you happy.. you can't rely on others
for your own happiness.. (Ok it wasn't a wise goblin but someone
equally wise I'm sure).. But really want to meet someone who can
share in that with me too.. happiness and experience is definitely
more fun when shared i think..
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Erm.. so this is the big yourself up section lol..
I think i'm a pretty good listener .. I read a lot and am
interested in lots of areas of science and medicine (stop snoring
at the back).. so I often come out with gems when you least expect
it.. (some would say occasional know-it-all.. I like to call it
knowledgeable.. am I doing this right?.. is there anyone left
I'm also quite good at seeing where people are really coming from I
think.. rather than what they put out if that makes sense .. not
sure it does so if it doesn't feel free to skip over it... ok
struggling with this section.. will come back to it..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My face if they are my height .. the top of my head if they are
taller and my chest if they are extremely short.. not sure that is
the answer required but its the only one i can think of right now..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Its got to be the Shawshank Redemption filmwise .. was a better
feel good film ever made?
Musically I am a dinosaur .. as a rule anything you can sing to.. I
am an eighties teen so it was all new romantics .. Bit of Floyd and
Genesis.. (Told you I am a musical dinosaur) .. if you force me to
the current era its anything soulful with decent lyrics that
doesn't seem manufactured.. quite like a bit of Pink.. she has an
amazing voice and says what she thinks which I respect..
Books I like all sorts.. tend to get hooked on authors and read
everything they have done and get frustrated that they don't write
as fast as I read them .. most unreasonable..
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My friends.. especially those who know me as well as or better than
I know me..
Some gadget things .. Phone.. music.. (I know its a bit material
but there is a geek in me that stresses when he loses or breaks
them... I can be a forgetful clumsy sod so this can happen alot)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Hmmmm... What to say in this bit.. I think I will come back to it..
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out for a nice meal .. or drinking a glass of wine watching a
film .. (15 years ago this would have been completely different ..
but I am going to fly my 40 flag again :-))
