I am now 40 years of age and cutting back on work a bit. I am into many things; snowboarding, rock climbing, paintball, film. I am an adventurous person and love to experience life. I enjoy music and reading over just about anything else (save riding my board on a crisp day with a new snow fall) and have a wide ranging and eclectic taste in both areas. I have lots left to explore in this world and am looking to share that with someone special. Experiences are great but they are sooo much better when you can share them with someone.
I have a son from a pervious relationship and very much enjoy being a dad to him. We spend most weekends together and so if that is an issue then cry off early. He is a truly lovely boy whom I love spending time with.
I am Mentally Resilient, Adventurous, and Playful
Well that covers a few areas, ask if you want to know more.
Books, they wrote ‘em, I read ‘em. That said, I think I enjoy epic fantasy and science fiction along with history the most. The one thing I do not enjoy is poetry, of any kind. I have tried many types and now know with a certainty that I cannot read reams and reams of poetry, pity really, I always wanted to get through the Iliad but it is not going to happen in this life time.
A quick aside, I love the Tolkien books, all of them, in fact the Lord of the Rings are one of my most favourite series ever written. I can wax lyrical about why I like them but am not too much of a geek about it, I have just formed opinions and can tell you why I like them if you should be so foolish as to ask. That said I really dislike the films by the New Zealander, so a night staying in to watch all the films back to back would be some form of cruel and unusual torture. I can also wax lyrical about why I dislike the films, no mindless hate here I assure you, cognitive reasoned hatred only! Rant over, on with the profile.
Films and Music love, love, love. I do not drink, smoke or enjoy going out to clubs (what do you do?), so all my money over the years has been spent on music and film. I have about 4,500 albums and loved most of them at some point in time. My tastes vary with mood and ranges across the styles and eras of the countries I have visited. As with the books though, there is an exception looming, JAZZ! I have probably 50,000 plus tracks on CD and only one Jazz track that I like, ‘Sinner Man’ by Nina Simmone, there has to be something to that. Maybe you can suggest another jazz track that I might like, that would be pretty special!
Food, love Chinese (English Chinese as opposed to Chinese Chinese food), Indian (the real stuff as well as the English version), Thai, Pizza and English (yes we have our own style of cuisine despite what others may say). I love simple foodstuffs and there is nothing better in the world than quick raid of my own fridge and steak with not much else added to make for a perfect meal.
1. Book Shops. 2. Pizza. 3. Amazon. 4. Music Shops. 5. The Cinema. 6. Good Friends to share life with.
