My self-summary
Probably one of the oldest Romantic / Vampire Goths in the country (with a sneaky liking for 'Steampunk'), and happy that way.

I don't own a car as I hate driving but I ride my bike (VN800 Vulcan) 365 days a year, love the freedom of a motorbike on the open road. ***Updated: have sold the VN800 and looking for something else***

Into photography and also travel, which is cool as it is great fun to combine both. I Like doing outdoor type things whenever possible, but not a sport person. I love a nice walk along a beach or through a forest, or even sat reading a good book by a river, a lake, or in a graveyard.

Other interests: Vampires (female vampires are so sexy), everything Goth, paranormal things, love cats, Pinot Noir...oh my, lots of things really.

Please note that I am young in mind and heart and am not a pipe and slippers person. I don't intend to grow old gracefully...I intend to go there kicking and screaming. Life is an adventure and I am not going to miss out on it until I have no choice. I want to slide into my coffin saying "Whooo, what a ride, can I have another go!!!"

I am caring, tactile, fun loving, life loving, loyal, an incurable romantic. I am an adventurous person and like to do things and also travel when the opportunity allows, no sitting in front of the TV watching soaps or 'reality' tv, I'd rather live my own life. Having said that I will curl up with a good movie and a glass of Pinot Noir or a coffee occasionally.
Although I don't smoke (hopefully given up) I have no problem if anyone else does.

My main negative point is that I am a very spontaneous person and can sometimes 'jump' in at the deep end with all guns metaphorically blazing. Have done that and shot myself in both feet more than once before :)

Thanks for reading my profile. If you have got this far and are still awake you certainly have mental stamina.

One more thing. I don't have a problem with distance. Distance can only be measured in time. As you can never be more than 24 hours away, if you are worth the time, I am willing to travel or even relocate anywhere.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out how I am ever going to answer all of these questions!
I am working toward maybe moving to the lake District, Hungary (beautiful country), or Italy, but that is not cast in stone. I would love to go off on a travel adventure for a few years, but who wouldn't? I am basically taking steps to be happy.
I’m really good at
Oh my giddy should I know what I am good at!!! That is for other people to know and tell me. I have been told I am a good photographer though.
The first things people usually notice about me
The fact that I don't look like a 50+ year old is supposed to look. I am not a cardigan and slippers person.
If you want a rough idea of what people notice about me Google images of Michael McKnight (The band Soulidium), Sir Ben Kingsley, or Patrick Stewart (Jean Luc Picard).
The hair is by choice and can be grown back :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just a sample of my music taste:
Theatres des Vampires, The Murder of my Sweet, Faith and the Muse, Delain, Sirenia, Soulidium, Theatre of Tragedy, Deva, Arch Enemy, Mandragora Scream, Epica, Leaves Eyes, Nightwish, Penumbra, Within Temptation, After Forever, Xandria, Echoes of Eternity, Mortal Love, Domina Noctis, Lacuna Coil, Therion, Krypteria. OK, be honest, how many of those have you heard of?
I like most rock but also have a fairly eclectic music taste. Sorry, I don't like dance / rap etc but each to their own.

As for shows: There are two I would really love to see. 'Tanz der Vampires' and 'Vampires Rock'. Come on, I did say I love Vampires!

Movies... escapism mainly, for me movies need to entertain and not try to teach. So I would say 'Underworld', 'Blade', 'Lord of the Rings', 'Matrix' (the first one but not the sequels), 'Interview with the Vampire', 'Sky Captain' (yes...I know), 'League of Extraordinary Gentlemen', 'Alice in Wonderland' (Tim Burton films are wonderfully dark - n'est-ce pas?), 'Blade Runner'.

Books... hmmmm, mainly Terry Pratchett, Anne Rice, Raymond Chandler and Deepak Chopra (go on - look it up !).

As for food ..... I love Italian and Greek, fruit, most things really.
The six things I could never do without
Freedom to be me.
Alternative people who go beyond the boundaries of 'normality'.
My Cameras.
The beauty of nature.
Hugs and cuddles.
Good conversation.
My ability to count up to six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Things and other things.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever I feel like doing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing until I get to know a person better.
You should message me if
you are a 'do it' sort of person and not a soap / reality tv addict.
Also, at my time of life I am not into one night flings. I am only interested in serious friendships or a relationship.
Please, I am always straightforward and honest and do not play mind games or lie, so please only contact me if you are the same.
