My friends would describe me as; fun to be around, honest, dry sense of humour, passionate, sometimes intense, loyal, occasionally irreverent, caring, flexible, adventurous, smart, worldly and a hell of a catch (well not really, but if they were REALLY good friends they would say this).
I enjoy my life; for all that it has offered and for all that is to be. I try hard to find some meaning to it, and at the same time accept the mystery of it all. I’m a bit of a romantic, with an enduring interest in philosophy, and psychology. I enjoy reading, and do watch movies, and some TV on occasions. I am both an introvert and extrovert. I’ve spent time working out my daemons and for the most part I’ve got them all lined up now. I am not much of a materialist, if the US economy is dependent on the likes of me; we are all in for a rough time. I’m game for most things, for me it’s as much the sharing of the experience as the event itself. I love long road trips. I’m more comfortable with a smaller group than some large event. However, I can do the full gambit from the “Spit & Saw Dust Pub (or the US equivalent) to Black Tie, without embarrassing either you or me too much. I have volunteered for many years, helping those in crisis. I feel it is a privilege to be there for others in their darkest times, and makes me a better human being.
I’m a divorced father with 2 children, a 22-year-old son and a 20-year-old daughter. My son has graduated from College, and my daughter is a junior away at College. I have been divorced over 10 years, and the dust has settled a longtime ago. I have no special ties to my house anymore, and I am opening to moving.
Now as for the evenings on moon lit beaches, and all those other clichés, well none of these seem to play a major part in my life. I suppose I should work harder on that! Oh yes, and I’m English, been here 20 years but still have the accent, if this makes any difference.
I think that most people would say is my accent, I still sound very English even after all these years.
