My self-summary
I'm 35 years old, happy, healthy and single. Enjoying the discovery of life. Curious. Finding the balance between ambition and satisfaction with what I have. Entrepreneur. An Englishman conceived in Fiji and living in the beautiful city of Taipei for over 6 years now. in Taiwan.

I'm an outdoor guy, I do a lot of rock climbing which thankfully is plentiful in Taiwan when it's not raining. Swimming, frisbee, hiking, biking, tennis, pool (yes it's a sport, sort of). But mainly rock climbing. If you want to climb you have a guaranteed date. If you can climb already I'll marry you tomorrow.

If you can express yourself with sincerity, can laugh at yourself and life, can enjoy a good chat then maybe we will get along.
What I’m doing with my life
I set up my own company 6 years ago in Taipei and have been running it ever since. Along the way I've learnt a lot but nothing excites me more than the future.

I've learnt the importance of good friends, good conversation and not getting worried about the unimportant things in life.

Proper eye contact turns me on.
I’m really good at
That's something you can find out for yourself
The first things people usually notice about me
I've got no idea. Most people guess my nationality wrong when they first meet me, maybe because I've been out of England for over 10 years now.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot of biographies. I loved Shantaram very much indeed. Now that I have a Kindle with 1000+ books on it (bought from a friend with a very different taste in books) I have lots of books I don't like, but am slowly discovering some good ones in there.

I have a kitchen but don't know what it does or how to use it. In fact, when the gas man comes round every few months to read the gas meter he always looks at me very confused when he sees the number hasn't moved.

But that's not to say I don't eat! I really enjoy food and one of the best things about Taipei is the many delicious restaurants to discover.

But I do want to learn to cook at some point. I actually attended a cooking class in Taipei, but that didn't go so well, a story for another time perhaps.....

Music: I've been listening to a lot of jazz at work recently, www.jazzradio.com in fact, mainly because ICRT was driving me crazy. I really like seeing live music in Taipei, another simple pleasure in life when you're with the right people, the music is good and you are just absolutely enjoying yourself.

If I had to list a few favourites I'd say: Thievery Corporation, Juzzie Smith, Gorillaz, some of that chilled Buddha music, Black Eyed Peas, The Cat Empire, Caravan Palace (oh I should have put that earlier), Coldplay, Manu Chao and many more. YouTube them while you're checking out all the lovely men on this site :)
The six things I could never do without
- My scooter (I love it more than you love your pet)
- Honesty
- Challenges
- The sun
- Belgium beer
- Sports
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- It's so important to have control of your thoughts and power over your mind, it really affects everything in your life, your outlook and ultimately who you end up becoming and what you end up doing.
- I enjoy thinking about people, motivations, plans, ideas and such things but I prefer to discuss them with other people
- Mangoes
On a typical Friday night I am
meeting friends for a good meal and some drinks after a long week working.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nearly all my underwear is blue checked. Really. I've got about 8 pairs of blue checked underwear, all slightly different patterns. And I don't remember ever planning it that way, it just happened.
You should message me if
You're an honest person who enjoys life and wants to enjoy it even more.
