My self-summary
I'm a 5'8", slim, friendly male who is very intelligent and caring. I'm down-to-earth and I can be very playful and affectionate.

I'm mostly looking to get to know a female with an interest in the arts and culture; I enjoy things that are mainstream and alternative, classic and more contemporary. I'd especially love to meet someone with a similar interest in music and films, who also enjoys good food and wine, intelligent and fun conversation, the outdoors and walking.

Love to receive messages from anyone genuine who thinks they might be in some way like-minded.
What I’m doing with my life
Worked in admin for quite a few years. Got a 2:1 psychology degree as a mature student and I also did a very interesting post-grad in consciousness & transpersonal psychology.

I've had things difficult in recent years in being a carer for my mum who passed away in early 2014 (I've also done a lot for a sister who's had disabilities). I'm currently doing healthcare work in hoping to eventually get a Graduate Mental Health Worker post.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
People I care about and what's going on in the world.
