My self-summary
So where to start, well I'm an easy going, friendly guy that has a slightly alternative view of the world, and I'm not the sort to follow a crowd. I am fairly anti-corporate, and dislike greed.

I can take a little time to warm to people, and can appear to be a little shy on a first meet, but I soon get over this, and start to open up.

I've been single for a while now, and whilst it's nice having lots of freedom, I would like to find someone to get to know, relax with and have some good times. I enjoy nothing more than spending time with someone special, and hope that one day I will find my perfect match ;-)

I have been described as having the 'Viking look', since I grew my hair and beard longer (updated pics to follow).
What I’m doing with my life
I run my own business, and as such, can take time off pretty much whenever I like. This sometimes results in me doing some travelling around the UK, especially in the warmer months. I like the occasional visit to remote areas to chill out away from the hustle and bustle. Cornwall has become my main retreat of late as I have some friends who now live down there.

I have a camper van (self built, so it's no masterpiece, but is very practical). I try to get away whenever possible.

I'm also a bit of a home brew buff, I love making my own beer, nothing more satisfying than drinking beer you brewed yourself.
I'd like to buy some land down in Devon/Cornwall, so that I always have a retreat that I can visit at the drop of a hat.
I’m really good at
Various things... my job being one of them!
Being independent.
Sampling real ales. (Yummy)
Tying my own shoe laces (with no help from my mum).
Being chilled and letting nothing phase me.
Sleeping for more than 8 hours.
Eating!
I have a sixth sense which allows me to tell a decent human being from an arsehole, usually within seconds of meeting someone, and I'm almost 100% accurate.... maybe that's why I dislike most politicians!
The first things people usually notice about me
I haven't got a clue what to put here! At least If I had hairy eyeballs I'd have an idea... but I don't.

Erm, my Viking look maybe?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've never been much of a fiction reader, but enjoy factual reading (geek!).

I generally like films that employ an element of comedy, and also those that are a little ridiculous, like Airplane, The Naked Gun series, Dumb and Dumber etc.

Some of my other faves are:- The Lost Boys, Snatch, The Big Lebowski, The Matrix trilogy, Kingpin, Terminator 1-4, and the list goes on.... and on.... and on.... blah blah.

I no longer bother with TV, mostly because I find the news depressing and can't stand soaps or any kind of reality show, which realistically doesn't leave much else... Although I like a lot of TV comedies like Blackadder, Fawlty Towers, Extras, Father Ted, The IT crowd, The Simpsons, Futurama, American Dad, Family Guy etc.
I generally watch things on Netflix or Amazon Prime, and my current favourites are:

Vikings (awesome, not too dissimilar to Games Of Thrones at times)
Mr Robot (absolutely brilliant)
Halt and catch fire
Science and nature documentaries
Plus many more...

As for music, I generally go for metal/rock/folk etc.

I listen to various bands. from Pink Floyd to Slipknot, and Muse to Led Zeppelin. Volbeat have entered my like list too!

I also enjoy a lot of easy listening. And being an 80's child I love a lot of 80's music, especially Duran Duran.

The 70's were also a golden era for music. I guess what I'm saying is that I will listen to most stuff, although I'm not keen on rap (unless it's 80's electro and hip hop), dance music bores me, and I'm not into most of the modern chart music.

Oh, and you can't beat going to see a live band, whether it be in a pub or a huge stadium... live music rules!

Mmmm, now food... well, I'll try anything once, and if I like it I'll have it again. I like Indian, West Indian, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, Thai, etc, etc. Deep fried Locusts are also quite yummy... don't knock 'em till you try 'em!
The six things I could never do without
Just because it says 6, I'm going to pick 7.

Food
Water
Air
Beer (real ales, not lager!)
My motorbikes
Good company
My camper van
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ferrari's
Dinosaurs
Peace on Earth
Playing cards with dolphins (erm? Stems from a dream I had as a kid)
Why do people from Russia, Ukraine and The Congo bother reading my profile?... Hi if you're reading this!
On a typical Friday night I am
When I remember one I'll let you know. Na! Just kidding.

Usually socialising with friends. Otherwise, I sometimes chill out at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have never received any ridicule with my trousers down. ;-)
You should message me if
you drive a Citroen 2CV. And are willing to let me have a drive :-)

If, like me, you have just eaten a Kit Kat and it was chocolate all the way through.

Or if you're of a friendly nature and looking for a relaxed guy who enjoys meeting people and loves good company.
