I'm very open and honest (too much so for some people - don't ask my opinion if you don't want to hear the truth!).
I love active pursuits but I'm not obsessive about fitness. I also adore the arts and enjoy kicking back, exploring new places and finding a cosy corner to hang out.
Does this make me sound paradoxical? I often think that's the word which describes me best.
Seeing art exhibits (I'm a Friend at the RA) and various musical performances and theatre.
I am a professional person (as opposed to an amateur person?) but don't see myself as career minded, I earn a comfortable amount but use that to live well and enjoy myself rather than seeing work as a purpose in itself.
Looking for someone who also has varied interests to share laughs, activities, food and wine, travel, etc.
Movies - anything a bit different and thought provoking, not that keen on Hollywood blockbusters (and wouldn't pay to see them at a cinema) but they're OK when you want to put your brain in neutral.
Music - eclectic mix depending on what mood I'm in and what pops into my head. I don't care what's in or out, good music stays good whatever the hipsters say.
Food - again many options as long as it's good quality - Italian, Thai, Japanese some of my favourites. Not hugely taken with Mexican.
TV - documentaries, especially science related, Big Bang Theory, Scandinavian crime thrillers.
Boredom is the enemy
If you've got this far and you like the sound of me perhaps you're wondering why I'm on here and no, I haven't ballooned into a blimp or turned into a wrinkled hag since photos were taken.
Some people might say I'm fickle but it's not about finding someone who has a body like Beckham or his bank balance.
Although I get along with most people (as long as they have half a brain and some values) I don't often feel that extra thing that makes it worth pursuing further. I don't believe in fate but neither can I settle for something that's not going to add to my life, I would rather be single.
So if you message me, please give me some clue why we might click! If your opening message is bland and your profile is too you're not doing yourself any favours.
