Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a poly person with a lovely partner in the US, and a (Slovak)
ex wife, who lives in Slovakia with our 2 kids.
I also moved to Slovakia in 2011 (from the UK) to spend more time
with my children, but have been travelling here since 1997 and have
had property in the country since not long after. Annoyingly I dont
speak Slovak as no-one could be arsed to help me learn and I had no
sensible options in the UK. I am slowly correcting this :)
My primary partner, and I, have had, on occasion, other partners
although at the moment neither of us have any other.
Primarily I am just looking for friends although, being poly, other
options may arise in time :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working stupid US hours for an American company and finally getting
to learn Slovak, as well as spending much missed time with my 2
I'm also gradually working to get fit again after a serious
accident left me with a shattered hip and unable to do much
exercise for many years. Luckily, time has allowed healing and I am
now able to do considerably more, including decent exercises and
walking long distances which, as an ex climber/mountaineer/hill
walker, I am unbelievably happy about. I have been able to restart
my natural tendency to walk at night and, last week, found myself
in Austria after a nice moonlight walk from Bratislava :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
*grin* All sorts of things, except that filling in descriptions of
myself is not one of them so you might never believe me unless we
start talking !
A computer Scientist by profession so have an interest in all
things Computer (except for games! ) and electronics.
I can turn my hands to most things and, having grown up as a dairy
farmer, and renovating old houses and working on new builds, can do
pretty much house and farm related.
I love cooking and have occasionally worked professionally, which
was enough to tell me that that was not the life for me. Most
people seem to be rather happy with my food :)
I'm also pretty good at listening to people and try hard to not
snore when I fall asleep on them !
I'm not so good at playing the whistle or pistalka, but I am
enthusiastic - I rarely hear anyone complain, but that could be
because they have all run away and are hiding with their hands over
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a red-head and tend to have an evil twinkle to my eye. Probably
because i am busy planning my bid for total world domination :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Too many to write down. My tastes are so eclectic....
But I'll give it a try :)
Books: anything with little substance :) Text Books, Biographies,
Histories, etc. Fiction of all shapes and forms, although I do tend
to switch off mentally with sloppy romances and idiotic hard core
macho stuff goes the same way. Its nice to read something that was
both written by someone with a brain, and who intended to assume I
had one as well. I suppose that description also needs to be
applied to the editors and publishers, too :) recently my ebook
reader is giving me an opportunity to revisit hundreds of old
classic texts that are now available on the internet :)
Music. Most genres as long as it is actually really music, and has
something recognisable as a rhythm that is distinguishable from the
knock of a knackered old tractor engine!. I love all kinds of folk
music and have an especial place in my heart for English folk
ballads, in all their dark and gory glory. Rock, metal, folk-rock,
folk-metal, new-age, jazz, classical, etc. I'm not such a fan of
some of the tripe that started in the 90's and is still with us
today. 'Music' that is marketed as an anthem for a 'lifestyle'
image or other frippish rubbish that has no discernible substance
of its own is usually right out the window as far as I am concerned
Shows: I don't watch too much TV but do like drama with comedy in
it. Eureka, NCIS, Bones, Castle, are a few of the current ones.
Most have such impact on my life that I can barely remember them
until someone mentions them and then a little light comes on and I
sound like some doddery old guy reminiscing about something in his
decades distant youth :)
Food: Pretty much anything that is actually real food and not
manufactured in a factory from chemicals that make it pink. I also
love to cook and try to learn from new dishes I encounter.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My loved ones (including my friends)
Air, water, food and toilet paper!
Something new to experience and learn
Sunsets and nature
and fingers, since I seem to have had trouble counting this list :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lfe the universe and everything. And Chocolate (even more so now I
am getting myself fit again after recovering from several years of
disability - not much chocolate is passing my poor lips at the
I am a computer scientist and love learning. Everything :) i love
art, occasionally write and do bardic perfomances and occasinally
terrify the local wildlife with my píšťalka, ocarinas and tin
I love cooking, art and philisophical discourse.
I am also a shaman and need to keep my connection with nature
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In, or out, with friends and family or reading and studying.
Being in Slovakia full time seems to be rubbing off on me and I do
tend to go out a lot more than I used to :) Perhaps its just that
the beer is good and the company is good :D
I'm still trying to find a decent folk music scéne, however...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a complete collection of Danger Mouse DVDs...
