My self-summary
I am happy , settled with my lifes ambitions when it comes to career , stability and my children (with ex) . I miss and like having someone to care about , laugh with and build memories with.
What I’m doing with my life
Letting work trot along at its normal pace whilst getting out there to expand my social life , hobbies and interests and hope to have a few adventures along the way. I enjoy short trips to new places especially if there is a bit of history , art , culture or architecture along the way , i have just started going to a Gym and pool again after over a year and feel really refreshed because of it . I tinker with motorbikes which i like to take abroad and go camping with but not into the biking scene , collecting old/retro stuff . I volunteer at a Hospice furniture project a couple of saturdays a month which is great fun. Try to be spontaneous and head off on adventures at the drop of a hat.
I’m really good at
Making people feel at ease . Apparently i am 'really easy to be with'. I am not a bad cook. I am a good listener , analyser and problem solver for people i care about. Very practical and can build/fix most things.
The first things people usually notice about me
Confidence, smile and a slightly eccentric sense of humour.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love all books at all levels , not too much fiction and never thought i could handle heavy classics but seem to be into Thomas Hardy at the moment !. I like all film styles but not mass produced predictable hollywood although i dont mind the odd thriller/romcom. I like a lot of classic older films . Some like it hot , Lawrence of Arabia , Far from the madding crowd etc. Music and food all over the place from Joan Armatrading to the googoo dolls. I dont hold with having to follow one theme or discarding something because its out of fashion or not currently raved about in the sunday supplements.
The six things I could never do without
New interests , A trip planned , a trip in planning , a good book to read , my kids , meeting new people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Life being one chance , should i take more risks and Will i ever see my pension money back !. How fortunate i am compared to some others and How the worthy never seem to be rewarded !. If i let life trot along will the years pass by too quickly !.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the Gym then out for a drink or off somewhere, whether its to see the kids or on an adventure . Very seasonal and like to chill at home if deepest winter or weather bad.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Leave this blank i think.
You should message me if
You are independant and appreciate the need for overlap in lives as well as free space. You genuinely want to start as a friend to share nice times out , interests, laughs and life with. To take it steady and maybe lead to romance . Nobody in a hurry and nobody who thinks they need to live their life to a media stereotype or self diagnoses themselves as mad or crazy please .
