Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to read by which I don’t mean just the texts which have
covers and pages, though those too, but any reflection of life
whether it be musical, visual, natural, physical, spiritual or
commonplace; that which makes mere existence into an experience
I’m more comfortable sharing a conversation over a glass of whiskey
around an open fire in a bothy, or a pint in a quiet pub or having
friends round for dinner at home than shouting to make myself heard
in a club. Picking blackberries on a forest walk of more interest
than shopping for stuff I don’t need; though there are few books I
couldn’t find some place for in my collection.
I spend a lot of time on my own, partly through choice since I have
learnt to enjoy my own company and inane conversation about
mortgages and football bores me to hell; however I'd like to think
that there's someone out there with whom a spark could catalyse
some chemistry. New friends would be welcome and perhaps more, who
knows...Searching for someone I can really talk to is rather like
combing a beach for pearls: seemingly almost pointless, and
I'm cynical in the sense of trying to see the world and people as
they really are beyond appearances, whilst trying to maintain a
realistic optimism. There are magical moments in everyday life,
even in adversity, and it’s our responsibility to treasure them
since they are all the happiness we will ever have.
I’d like to meet someone who has lived a bit, who has learnt not to
judge according to first impressions and with whom few words are
necessary but on occasion enjoys a good argument. Kindness and
intelligence are equally attractive.
I don't care for winks; an e-mail which reveals something about you
as a person is almost guaranteed a response....a reasonably recent
everyday photo would be appreciated too

the mood strikes you...but the avoidable use of text speak will
swiftly earn my contempt...if you can't express yourself without it
then we have nothing to talk about. I also can't imagine kissing a
woman who smells of cigarettes.
