In a woman, I want someone who is willing to be completely open and honest. I want the type of relationship free from game-playing and second guessing, where we keep no secrets and if one of us is not happy then neither of us is happy.
I want a woman who has a sense of humour but can also be serious, and who has her own interests and dreams and things she is passionate about. I don't mind if we don't like all the same things, that way we can both learn from each others tastes and experience things we wouldn't have thought of before.
I just started using weights again a couple of weeks ago, and have just bought some running shoes so I can start running. I read, and I'm writing a book(involving fitness/pyschology/body language/cookery and all sorts). I've got a couple of business ideas I'm looking to get off the ground, and I'm trying to find time to teach myself guitar too.
Apart from that, I want to travel a little. I always wanted to see Machu Picchu in Peru, and visit the far east.
my job (at one time there was 3 people doing it, now just me);
giving advice and then not following it myself;
saying things then realising they sounded different in my head;
one or two things I'm probably not allowed to mention here, naughty things :-o;
remembering miscellaneous crap(song lyrics, rules to games like Warhammer that I've not played in 15+ years, whole sections of film/TV dialog) in place of things I really should remember;
being slightly concerned at the number of people who seem to be proud of their borderline alcohol dependency;
making jokes out of everything;
not being able to think of anything I'm really good at.
Movies: The Lost Boys; The Princess Bride; Fast Times At Ridgemont High; The Goonies; Legend; Innocent Blood; Highlander; The Shawshank Redemption; Stand By Me; anything by Kevin Smith; and so many others. I love horror films(I have all the Alien films and the special edition of Predator) and just about anything from the 80's. My guilty pleasure is really bad 50's scifi B-movies and creature features.
I'm also going to include TV here: The Big Bang Theory; Mock The Week; QI; NCIS; Mythbusters; Monk; a cartoon from my childhood called "The Mysterious Cities Of Gold"; Peep Show; Skins; Quantum Leap.
Music: I mostly tend to listen to older stuff. I like individual songs rather than bands, and usually only have music in the background as I'm doing other things. That said, I do like Cheap Trick; Queen; Metallica; Iron Maiden; Guns N Roses; Muse; and probably quite a few others too. That said my tastes are quite varied and my playlist includes quite a diverse array (Taylor Swift, Billy Ocean, The Temptations, Oingo Boingo, ELO, Rammstein, Prince, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Huey Lewis, Cat Stevens).
Food: I'm trying to be much healthier right now so I'm mostly avoiding all the desserts I used to love (ice cream and hot chocolate fudge cake, cheesecake, gateaux, etc) in favour of apples, pineapples, and/or kiwis (the fruit, not people from New Zealand).
I'm told I make very good cookies, and that my cheesecake is amazing. I'm not a fan of vegetables (I've tried eating broccoli, I really have, but it's just terrible), and the only eggs I eat are made of chocolate. Oh, and cheese makes everything taste better.
Orange and pineapple squash.
Yes, I know that's only 5. Clearly I'm a rebel and I'm sticking it to the man. Take that the man.
How I can self improve?
How I can improve the world around me?
Why are BMW/Audi/Mercedes owners even allowed to drive?
Why does Dr Sam Beckett insist on having loud conversations with Al, who only he can see, when there are other people close by?
What shape would a circle be if pi was exactly 3?
Why do women need so many pairs of shoes?
Seriously. What's with all the shoes? Are you all stockpiling in case there's a shortage?
I'm probably at home, on the internet or reading a book, or exercising, or cooking. Maybe with friends.
You're willing to accept my family tradition of roast chicken every Saturday;
you're open to my spur of the moment ideas like going for a walk in the woods in the middle of the night, or deciding to spend the weekend at some hotel or similar I've just happened across online;
you want to.
