Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am very laid back and non-judgemental, and very tolerant, except
with those who are not themselves tolerant. I celebrate human
diversity and hate discrimination and anything that is unfair. I’ve
a left of centre background that is important to me.
I’m very loving, tactile and passionate, and a good listener. I
spent my first 30 years being extremely shy and not joining in
[although no-one who knows me now believes me!], and so am very
sensitive to the feelings of others. But I have a sometimes wicked
and a sometimes ‘smutty one-liner’ sense of humour. I love life,
& enjoy working out my options but don't necessarily take the
People usually think I am a lot younger than I am and I tend to
find men my age and older too set in their ways and so I am mainly
interested in those younger than me – but I am very happy to be
proved wrong on this!
I would love to meet someone to join me enjoying life – going to
concerts and the theatre, trying new restaurants and returning to
well loved ones, dancing, trekking, visiting and finding out about
other cultures and places, chilling – but I’m independent and can
do things separately if dancing or other things I like don’t ‘float
your boat’. I love to try new things so please teach me about what
interests you. I am always very happy fitting in with what those
around me want to do.
Yes, eventually I’d like a long-term relationship if I find the
right person, but if initially I meet new, interesting people who
become friends then that would be great.
I’d love to meet someone who doesn’t take himself too seriously but
does take seriously the problems of others and the atrocities round
the world – what man can inflict on man; someone able to cry
laughing and cry for others.
And he needs to be a great kisser!!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently teaching English as a second language in Cambridge. In
the past, amongst other things, I've been a teacher of biology and
science at secondary level and a Debt Advisor at the local CAB. I
love travelling but not really in expensive hotels - prefer to get
to know the locals where I go. I hope my English teaching
qualification will help me see more of the world at some point, if
that fits with what is going on in the rest of my life at the time.
Until recently I taught a community fitness class and I hope to get
the time to do that again.
I’m really good at

I love food - love trying new things, new styles of cooking. If I
had to choose it would probably be spicy, maybe king
I have a wide taste in music. Love rock, love reggae but really
enjoy anything live. The last concert I went to was the Chilli
Peppers, before that was Ryan Adams, Sade, Guns 'n Roses,
Motorhead, Alice Cooper and Santana. But I'm currently getting to
know more relaxed music and love learning about the music they like
from those I meet. I have a saxophone but haven't played it
properly for years. I enjoy singing but am not sure those around me
enjoy it quite as much as I do!!
Enjoy going to shows - Avenue Q has to be a favourite!! I'm in
panto every year - used to produce it but now either have a small
part or am in the chorus. We take it to just outside Paris every
other year - great fun and somewhat drunken!!!
My favourite books are The End of Eternity [Asimov], A Thousand
Splendid Suns [Khaled Hosseini], The Descent of Woman [Elaine
Morgan], The Ship Who Sang [Anne McCaffrey]...... Films - Life of
Brian, Witness, Waterworld...
