Hello there, An average looking bloke but for those looking to venture outside the aesthetics "tick box", I consider myself to be an honest and straightforward one with old fashioned values, perceivably taken as being reserved and perhaps a tad formal until I get to know someone. By critique, it's suggested from both friends and colleagues (when asked for a succinct and honest opinion !) that I'm articulate, reasonably intelligent and above average in decorum and manners. Although born in the U.K., but having spent my formative years in Africa, I believe that I have a slightly different outlook on life to that of my peers which I consider makes me, well not unique but certainly different !! I'm by no means perfect and like all have my own idiosyncrasies but I'm easy going, confident and secure with generally a positive (we all have "off" days!!) "glass half full" outlook in life, excellent sense of humour (though I tell jokes badly !!) and an abundance of T.L.C. to give to just ONE woman. I especially value fidelity, mutual respect, equality and trust - essentially core virtues and values embraced, upheld and given wholeheartedly, so would equally seek reciprocated as I believe that collectively they are the essential bedrock to a stable and enduring relationship. I DON'T - do mind games, have materialistic traits, moods and am definitely not a "player" !! despite the seriousness of the above - I'm a fairly "laid back" (but serious when needs require) but by no means lethargic bloke who takes life as it comes, loves it and has a youthful (sometimes acting my "shoe size" age rather than my calendar one !!) but not puerile outlook on it, essentially an emotionally engaged, motivated, "normal" ? bloke.
I'm looking for a lady with whom to share the metaphorical emotional roller coaster highs and lows of everyday life - someone caring, affectionate, open minded, conversationalist, who enjoys a good laugh along with a pillow fight !! but can equally be serious and sensitive, who is equally comfortable in formal or casual, someone for me to be there SOLEY for, (I've NO bunny boilers lurking in the closet and apart from a M.G.B. Roadster, NO emotional encumbrance either !! (joke about the M.G.! ) - ) conversely her for me and not averse to be seen out walking hand in hand. I am aware that I'm looking for an awful lot in a woman but I confidently know that I can equally reciprocate the self same values sought !!
I'm NOT on here for a laugh, to waste anyone's time, out of desperation or looking for someone to have a one night stand with !! - what I am looking for though is someone with whom after meeting, finding the "chemistry" being there, dating (old fashioned that it may seem to be) and getting to know over time, when together both would consider enhancement of each others lives and that ultimately leading down the road of a permanent relationship - so I guess like most in life, simply wanting to share some happiness with someone of the opposite sex.
I like tribute bands, (Robin2) - music genre of the 60's, through to the early 80's in with the mix of popular classical, walking, reading, history of literature, the occasional meal out - be it either pub or select, my classic M.G. and the car club I belong to, this periodically involving weekend outings in the summer (a number being charity events) with club members to places of interest (stately homes, botanical gardens,seaside etc.), F1, B.T.C.C., the occasional rugby, cricket match (apologies to those who do but I've absolutely no interest in football) on T.V. - which I can either take or leave as I'm not an addict to the screen. I'm looking to meet someone with whom whose interests I can share and indeed, my interests with her.
A future aspiration would be to retire with a partner to sunnier climes (Spain) - so, if any of the above is of interest to you or there's something specific you would like to ask - please contact me and have a chat - if not, to those that have got thus far, thank you for your time and enduring patience in getting through a somewhat in-depth and lengthy (I guess, not unlike my mail settings list !!) profile and good luck in your search for happiness.
