(apologies for length, skip to the bottom for TL;DR)
I hate clichés so you'll just have to take for granted that I'm down to Earth, easy going, GSOH, long walks on the beach, bottles of wine, DVD, yadda yadda yadda....
I'm a fairly intelligent and articulate person, I'm quizzical and always looking to expand my knowledge and improve my "worldly-wiseness". I appreciate meaningful conversation, but like a good laugh too and like making others laugh (in an alternate universe I'm sure I'm a stand-up comedian) and I try not to take life too seriously. Favourite comedians are the likes of Frankie Boyle, Jimmy Carr, Mark Watson, Stephen K. Amos, Andrew Lawrence, Reginald D. Hunter etc.
At the risk of making it sound like you're about to get Nectar points, my better qualities are that I am baggage free (haters gonna hate on that one :) ), loyal, moral, honest. I do an ok job at looking after myself for my age (gym three times a week, strong arms, no beer belly), financially stable (own car, own company, own teeth). I hate any and all sport and have no interest in watching it or doing it.
I know I don't have pictures, but I'm a cross between Brad Pitt, Jean-Claude Van Damme and Jeffrey Archer. I have Brad's looks, Jean-Claude's body, and Jeffrey's pathological lying. I'll get some pics up after I've taken one of me in a car I've rented for the day, one sky-diving, one scuba-diving, one on the Great Wall of China and one planting a flag on the moon...just to show you what an interesting and varied person I am, and what a jet-setting life I lead :)
In a partner I don't really have a "type", not really interested in fake tan, fake hair, fake nails. Turn-ons for me are girls with pictures that have their toilet visible in the background. Looking for someone intelligent with similar interests and outlook on life. If you know who Raskolnikov is, or the symbolism behind why Moby Dick was white, without having to google it, I think we'll get on. If you know what totes amazeballs means without having to google it, then we probably won't.
I'm a bit past noisy nightclubs etc, so prefer quieter days and nights out, nights in. I like a quieter life; still, like papers on a Sunday afternoon...day trips, picnics, people watching in a country pub. Just looking for someone to really get to know and spend some quality time with. Looking for a nice, sweet girl that I can take home to my mum, is that too much to ask? (BTW my mum hates fat chicks and chicks that don't put out on the first date). Not interested in games or drama, just want to settle down for the home stretch. Even if you're not interested you can always drop me a line to discuss the issues of the day :)
(I promise I won't send you a picture of my wang...)
For TV I only have guilty pleasures - The Apprentice, Big Brother, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory, Inbetweeners, Boosh etc. Musically I bend toward rock and industrial. I like going to gigs, and as long as I can sit and listen with a beer in hand, I'd even see jazz. Nothing beats going to a random gig and discovering a new band or artist that you really like.
For movies I prefer ones that make you think (Memento, Donny Darko, K-Pax etc), but I also love blockbusters...I like the journey no matter the destination. Similarly I read a fair bit of classic literature, but I also read comics...don't let anything limit nor define you :)
If I was King for the day, I'd make all escalators "stand on the right", not just those on the London Underground. Also, I've paid to get in...why do I have to watch adverts at the cinema?
