I have a wide range of interests, some of which may appear contradictory - I'm a bit of a petrol-head but I think Jeremy Clarkson is a planet-trashing idiot, and I am very interested in energy efficient vehicles and housing...
I am building an "eco-house" and I keep chickens (for eggs and maybe Christmas dinner), and when the house is done I would like to keep pigs (for sausages and hams)
I am an engineer by profession and I suspect it was probably obvious from when I was about 6 years old playing with Technical Lego that I'd end up an engineer.
I am looking for someone with whom to spend the rest of my life (by which I don't mean I'm in a rush to get into just any relationship, but if the right person comes along I am not afraid of commitment).
Having cocked up more than once in the past, I do have some ideas about my "ideal" partner... but I'm not naive enough to think I'd be right about it!
I don't have any children and I don't want to procreate. I do like children but I have always been happy knowing that I can hand them back to a responsible adult when they start to smell bad or cry....
I would like the woman I spend the rest of my life with to share some of my interests, but I don't expect her to show an interest in everything I do...!
If you've read all the way to here without nodding off then you should drop me a line!
Some things I like -
watching too much telly (motor-racing, BBC4's foreign detective series' like Montalbano and Spiral)
cooking (and eating obviously)
snowboarding (not done for 3 or 4 years)
flying (got PPL in 2008 but let it lapse)
Some things I don't like
