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).
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.
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.
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!
Erm, my Viking look maybe?
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!
Beer (real ales, not lager!)
My camper van
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!
Usually socialising with friends. Otherwise, I sometimes chill out at home.
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.
