Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Honest, open, considerate, my friends describe me as a mans man (I
hope that’s a good thing!) I’m also silly, affectionate, cheeky,
romantic, impulsive, imaginative and fun to be around. Definitely a
gentleman and I believe a lady should be treated as such. I think
the best basis for a good relationship is to be best friends first
and foremost. I know you ladies already know that personality lasts
and looks don’t but us blokes take a lot longer to learn that.
Better late than never!
In answer to the question I always get asked. Yes I did want
children but I was never with the right person and by the time I
got married we decided it was too late. A sensible decision in the
end as it turned out we were more best mates than anything else but
no regrets. Good job I have nieces and nephews to spoil!
What else can I tell you.... I’m well travelled, near enough 50
Countries. I still play Rugby but just for fun nowadays. I used to
be a soldier although that was some year’s back. Lived in Africa
and the Virgin isles when I was younger. Most of my travelling
after that was either in the Army or on rugby tours to the Far East
etc. I’ve had dinner under the midnight sun in the Arctic Circle,
love festivals, boot fairs, days out, cocktails and cooking Sunday
breakfast. Did some writing for a music magazine in the 80’s and
tried to grab every opportunity that life has thrown me. I used to
work in management for a car manufacturer until I was 40 and had
the midlife crisis thing. I packed it all in and became a
decorator/ kitchen fitter. I've been pretty successful at it, which
I consider a bonus, as it’s something I really love doing.
