My self-summary
I'm a pretty confident, honest guy who enjoys having a laugh but can be absolutely serious when needs be. I'm well educated and travelled, and I see life as a series of learning experiences.

I possibly spend too much time in self examination, but I find that a source of strength rather than weakness. I find it better to confront what you are rather than deny it.

Creativity is a large part of my life, particularly acting. It is very important to me, as my characters represent a part of my life and personality, and being on stage allows me to reveal a part of who I am, for good or ill.

I am always looking for new challenges in my life. Currently I need a new one after finishing my Masters Degree.

One thing I don't understand about this site - why is it in the "You Might Like" section it includes people who you demonstrably have nothing in common with? Answers on a postcard please ...

Additional confusion - "near me" has so far included people from Ireland, Masachusetts and The Philippines. Call me old fashioned, but they really don't count as "near". Anyone else get this?
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a psychotherapist and hypnotherapist for myself, but I'm a bit of a renaissance man as I've just completed my MA in Shakespeare and Theatre and act part time. I'm also qualified in stage fighting and woukd like to work as a fight director too. Luckily, I'm semi- retired as I have no mortgage to pay and no family, so I have a lot of time to spend on my hobbies of Tai Chi, Theatre, re-enacting battles, singing, reading, films and playing daft drinking games.

Six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Self improvement is a big deal to me.

I also spend a lot of time thinking about god/gods, the purpose of existence, why we are here and what our ultimate purpose is.
On a typical Friday night I am
Varies - sometimes I work, sometimes I'm on stage, sometimes I am in with a film and a beer, on occasion I'm out for a drink, party or the theatre. In other words, there is no such thing as a typical Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The last two stage kissess I have done have been with men dressed as girls
You should message me if
You would like a chat, are reasonably local, match at 70% plus (we do need some differences). And if you would actually like to meet up - don't quite get why there are so many girls on a dating site who want to talk to a guy but don't actually want to meet up for a date!
