44 years old, physically feel a lot younger, mentally feel
positively teenage!! I'm a little bruised by the trials and
tribulations of life but still positive enough to believe in love.
Confident enough to be the 'life and soul of the party' but honest
and realistic enough to know I may need a little help when it comes
to dating. Old enough to know I'm not God's gift but young enough
to still enjoy being unwrapped. Wise enough to know it's not all
roses but daft enough to still want to feel butterflies.
It seems a lot of people are looking for people with 'no baggage'
but I think anyone who is my age and says they haven't picked up
more than their fair is very probably lying. I'd prefer to call it
'life experience' and I think it makes me what I am and that's an
honest and genuine person, a fiercely loyal friend and a
passionate, loving partner.
I have a huge love of films and cinema and desperation to learn
about new technology, (I'm enjoying my iPhone very much just wish I
knew how to use it!). I'm just as happy laying back and watching a
DVD, (see! That's that new technology stuff!), as I am getting
dressed up and doing the town. As happy with a couple of sweet
sherries and a bag of peanuts in a bar as I am with a 5 star meal,
a take away or a home cooked meal. I have a, sometimes slightly
warped but, great sense of humour and I love, love, love to
I don't really know what to expect from this on line dating thingy
but if I make some new friends then it certainly won't be a waste
and as my dear old Grandma used to say, "if you don't ask, you
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to enjoy it! I, now, work to live NOT live to work. It's not
that I'm not ambitious, I do want to own my own business, but I'm
not going to kill myself to put more money in someone else's bank
I emigrated to NZ for quality of life no to be a millionaire.
I’m really good at
Talking and listening, I love a good conversation.
I make a pretty good curry, a better chilli and the best bacon
The first things people usually notice about me
To be honest.....I have a shaved head, but its a lot better than a
comb over or a mullet isn't it? Think Jason Statham....but
older....and a touch chunkier!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books.....anything by Terry Pratchett, true or fictional crime and
I'm a movie junkie and can watch pretty much anything.
The six things I could never do without
the ability to laugh at myself and the world, bed, work, iPhone,
macbook, razors, gin (& tonic, ice & a slice of lime)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why I'm still single!!
How I'm going to start my own business.
Why the weight won't drop off me like it used to, no matter how
hard I work out or watch what I eat.
On a typical Friday night I am
Generally holding court in my local, eating a good meal or watching
a good movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have some tattoo's, I'd like more.....nothing too crazy but I do
