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
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.
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
