Hi there, my short name is Ben, thanks a million for checking out my profile. I am living and working out in the Republic of Ireland, but originally I am Dutch, born and reared in the east part of the Netherlands /Holland.
I am not an A-list member, so I cannot see your likes, please send me a kind message? And I always reply, no worries,
I would appreciate this a lot, thanks a million in advance.
Quite like living in the rural town of Newmarket on Fergus, half way between the county Clare's towns of Ennis and Shannon . But I also lived in Tulla, east of Sixmilebridge, and Inagh North West of Ennis, all in the west of Ireland, as well on the east coast of Eire , in [[Dublin]. But I am always open for a change, flexible in heart and soul.
Now some more bits of pieces of myself; I am working full-time in risk assessment. I did an online part-time night degree course Environmental Management at a small university in North Western Ireland. I am doing some volunteer work related to Natural Heritage Management, on designated habitats, areas for conservation. I am supportive of Greenpeace most of the time, but I also support a number of other charities and the Greens .
I'm still seeking that special sweet and intelligent and nature minded person, that one in an million in our galaxy, that needle in the haystack. I'd say friends 1st and foremost is my motto, no rush. I hope you adore traveling, hiking, beaches, virtually anything outdoors related, camping, canoeing, white water rafting, horses.
I am considerate and thoughtful about others always, I am sincere, and affectionately to the one I love.
I'm a firm believer in the KISS theory--Keep It Simple Stupid. Love and life are simple, people make them complicated.
Interested? "E" me a line or two please.
In 2006 I moved for the 2nd time from The Netherlands, from my former homestead at Purmerend, near Amsterdam, Holland/Netherlands, to Ireland, but than to the banner county Clare. I've also worked in some other places on Earth, such as the the states, yes the USA, and Lillehammar, Norway. I try to keep fit and healthy, I owe I think a good and own a good sense of humor, with a positive down to earth approach. As for my physical shape, I am 196cm/6'5", so very tall, I have dark blond short hair and magic blue eyes like the sea. But than again, ones character is far more important than physical appearance, one don't judge a book by its cover you know.
Some of favorite quotes: - Each of us conceals an abyss, though few of us are aware of its existence, and even fewer dare to explore its vastness.
