My self-summary
Sociable, romantic natured but pragmatic, witty, articulate, independent blue eyed male (my best feature ha ha) looking to meet an open-minded adventurous lady to enjoy quality time with - fun days out & passionate nights in!!! In essence a mutually satisfying relationship with someone special, good company, good conversation, good food & wine but with a respect for each others own personal space.

Amongst my qualities are sincerity, honesty, discretion & being a good listener - also told I am a good kisser(nothing like blowing your own trumpet!). I'm solvent (mortgage free at present) & self employed in the music business. Wide eclectic taste in music, film & literature, a passion for the great outdoors (Lakes, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales)& travel both within the UK & further abroad - particularly India & Far East.

The do's & don'ts: Don't take life too seriously but do seriously enjoy life. Do try to remember more than I forget which is not easy these days. Enjoy a good swim but definately don't do the gym - a 10 mile hike through breathtaking scenery is far better for mind & body. Don't do footie (a proud Mancunian who has never attended either United or City)but do watch 6 Nations rugby & don't do soaps - life is too short. Don't use or like to receive txt spk in emails (lol !!!!) Do enjoy my mountain bike (punctures aside) & do get angry with politicians - lies, damn lies, hypocrisy, self serving & dishonest!

Following introductory email/telephone conversation prefer to meet face to face in a conveniently neutral environment for a drink & a chat to guage mutual compatability & attraction rather than endless email ping-pong.

I am passionate, witty, and charming
What I’m doing with my life
In a few words: enjoying every moment of it - the good, the bad & the indiferent, taking pleasure in all lifes ups & downs. Spare time spent reading, listening to music, attending gigs, planning the great escape whilst walking the fells & dales - finishing off with a welcome pint of ale.
I’m really good at
Avoiding trouble, never getting bored, being extremely patient
The first things people usually notice about me
My sparkling wit - oops I meant my sparkling blue eyes! But on the whole I prefer to be incognito.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
More a question of favourite authers & subjects: George McDonald Fraser Flashman novels, Anthony Burgess, Paul Thereaux, Victorian & military history, extraordinary biographies, currently reading accounts of the Burma campaign during WWII.

Music - wide & varied but encompasses lots of folk, souskous, African & Asian, The Clash (greatest band ever!), many 1000s of tracks recorded in Jamaica from erly 1960s to 1982 - predigital era, work mainly with classical music.

Movies - film noir, French New Wave cinema, what is termed World Cinema, British kitchen sink dramas of the 1960s, the weird & the wonderful. Dislike most US action movies of the last 30 years.
Six things I could never do without
Eyes for looking at the world around me & for reading
Ears to hear the voices of friends & family & music of course
Sense of smell & taste to enjoy wonderful food & drink & sensual pleasure of the world around us
Comfortable boots or shoes
Unfortunately my iPod now it contains so much music to fill my head
I spend a lot of time thinking about
very little
On a typical Friday night I am
On the town or early to bed.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do like a women to be feminine - sexy underwear & a nice skirt or dress but no problem with her donning her boots for a good bit of boggtrotting
You should message me if
You like the countryside, travel, going to gigs & have an overwhelming enjoyment of life & all its riches!
The two of us
