Attention: if you've been begging to meet me, I think your messages have been getting lost in the ether...
I enjoy eating out, going to the cinema, theatre, comedy, gigs, art galleries etc. Can be persuaded to go for walks in the countryside, up and down hills, or around forests and parks, even if it's raining. Or around a lake, I like to hear a duck quack.
Got divorced a few years ago, and have enjoyed being single, not having to fit in with anyone, etc, but getting a bit tired of it now.
I have two lovely daughters who live with their mum, but I see them often.
I really like the thing on this site of being given questions to answer, BUT for some of the questions I really want to say "Well it depends..." and go on to explain at length why I don't want to tick any single one of the answers. Anyway I've answered 755 now, and I'm going to keep on going.
PS. No women-born-as-men thanks. (I think I'm too conventional for this site)

Books: I read novels, short stories, biographies, science, etc. Just finished the last Wallander. Now working my way through Jon Ronson's books, non-fiction, funny, ironic, thought provoking. Loved Kazuo Ishiguro's "The Unconsoled", aware that everyone else hated it.
Theatre: looking forward to a Pinter double bill in Tewkesbury this month. Recently enjoyed plays by Caryl Churchill, Keith Waterhouse and Alan Ayckbourn.
Food: I like Indian, Chinese, Greek, Portuguese, Nepalese, Thai, Turkish, French, Spanish, - almost anything! But mustn't rule out the English: shepherd's pie, pasties, sunday roast, bangers and mash, cream tea, fish 'n' chips...
TV: Don't watch much, but have enjoyed Big Bang Theory, Peep Show, Green Wing, Bod. Aversion to soaps. Columbo is my hero.
Radio: R4, R3, R5 live (but not really interested in the sport).
Music: I'm a bit more fussy, but still have varied tastes. Love to hear enthusiastic musicians play live. Will listen to bands, orchestras, choirs, drum ensembles, gamelan, and all manner of honkers squeakers squawkers grunters scrapers and cracklers.
This leaves a spare slot for the 6th thing: I'm open to suggestions.
* a good book / newspaper / magazine to read.
* music to listen to - especially live music.
* musicians to play with.
* cup of coffee.
* my daughters.
* the internet for entertainment!
