Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Sociable, romantic natured but pragmatic, witty, articulate,
independent blue eyed male (my best feature ha ha) looking to meet
an open-minded adventurous lady to enjoy quality time with - fun
days out & passionate nights in!!! In essence a mutually
satisfying relationship with someone special, good company, good
conversation, good food & wine but with a respect for each
others own personal space.
Amongst my qualities are sincerity, honesty, discretion & being
a good listener - also told I am a good kisser(nothing like blowing
your own trumpet!). I'm solvent (mortgage free at present) &
self employed in the music business. Wide eclectic taste in music,
film & literature, a passion for the great outdoors (Lakes,
Peak District, Yorkshire Dales)& travel both within the UK
& further abroad - particularly India & Far East.
The do's & don'ts: Don't take life too seriously but do
seriously enjoy life. Do try to remember more than I forget which
is not easy these days. Enjoy a good swim but definately don't do
the gym - a 10 mile hike through breathtaking scenery is far better
for mind & body. Don't do footie (a proud Mancunian who has
never attended either United or City)but do watch 6 Nations rugby
& don't do soaps - life is too short. Don't use or like to
receive txt spk in emails (lol !!!!) Do enjoy my mountain bike
(punctures aside) & do get angry with politicians - lies, damn
lies, hypocrisy, self serving & dishonest!
Following introductory email/telephone conversation prefer to meet
face to face in a conveniently neutral environment for a drink
& a chat to guage mutual compatability & attraction rather
than endless email ping-pong.
I am passionate, witty, and charming
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In a few words: enjoying every moment of it - the good, the bad

Spare time spent reading, listening to music, attending gigs,
planning the great escape whilst walking the fells & dales -
finishing off with a welcome pint of ale.

era, work mainly with classical music.
