I've been separated since January 2011, now divorced and I have 2 kids that play a large part in my life.
I would say that I am happy single, but there are a few things that I miss about being in a relationship, and chief among them is not the obvious! What I miss most is female company. I'd like to find somebody with whom I can share time together. Nights and meals out, an afternoon walking, a trip to the theatre, concerts etc. It would be great to be with someone who I enjoy being with and who enjoys being with me, sparking off each other conversationally, physically, romantically. Most of all time together should be fun!
I'm thoughtful, kind, sensitive, caring, reliable, loyal and a whole load of other boring character traits. Inside I'm quirky, rebellious and wannabe wild, but this never seems to be able to find an outlet, much to my frustration! This is probably due to being introvert, but I'm confident enough and feel that shyness is conquered. I'm very laid back and despite being a hard worker have something of a hippy-like attitude to work and life. I'm very liberal, both politically and in tolerance towards others.
I'm not particularly a fan of gender stereotypes, I don't conform to being macho or to being an alpha-male, although I am entirely masculine. Similarly I don't really go for the girlie-girl or for somebody too big on hair, nails and make-up. Although effort taken at the right time and on those things can be good.
I am a very sexual person (aren't we all), but I don't believe in being sexual too early on dating sites! To me you should be as respectful and behave appropriately just as you would face to face with a stranger.
A non-smoker is preferred, although a social/light smoker is acceptable. Ideally I'd like to find somebody local to myself, within 20 minute drive preferred, 40 acceptable and 60 at the outside.
I have just been reading that it's really common on dating sites for women to lie about their weight and body type and for men to lie about their height, age and relationship status. Just to be novel I can say that the whole of my profile is 100% accurate.
