Internally I'm just another variation on the unique blend of contradictions that make up any individual... love loud music at a gig or a festival, going to see a movie, being wrapped round a glass of wine in good company & putting the world to rights... the normalities of everyday life!
I've lived in London, San Francisco then toured Europe for a couple of years with bands (which isn't exactly as glamourous as some may think but great fun... you try sharing a sleeper bus with 15 guys!), and currently reside in Halesowen whilst working at a University but hopefully I've not stopped yet - after all, why not take a chance now and again, life is to treasure & enjoy...
Love a challenge in life, love new experiences, new places, new people - very life-curious & inquisitive
My house is a bit of a project, and a challenge I've been dealing with (sort of :o/) but would be nice at the end of the day to snuggle against someone on the sofa and breathe in the moment.
Maybe it's my Sagitarrian nature but I can still occasionally say what's on my mind before realizing the hurt it could cause. Fortunately a little age and experience has gone a long way towards tempering that... it is often more to do with being honest a nanosecond before the diplomacy gene kicks in and not in spite. I never go out of my way to hurt people - life is too short and no-one wins
Eternally optimistic, I can be patient & tolerant, tactile & affectionate, faithful, truthful & fiercely loyal to those who deserve it.
I prefer the company of a man who is educated, articulate & with a slightly dry sense of humour...:
Someone who is gentle, kind but also practical... and can cope with the smell of wet dog! Not only do I have my own mad hounds but also do my best to support a plethora of canine rescues. Love walking in the countryside or on a beach as much as dancing in a club or spending the weekend in a field at a festival - preferably with something loud, heavy and real guitars, but not based in a dim and distant past... For now, the hair is gone - a fabulous but short-lived purple dye coupled a dodgy thyroid fried the locks so the pixie crop is back again for now. Not that I care, I'm happy with me but seen enough bleating from both sexes about *false advertising* that I just want to make sure no-one has an issue :)
Glossary of terms
I wear shoes when I go out so that 5'7" becomes 5'9-10"... I would not date someone shorter than myself; it makes me feel uncomfortable - my loss? my choice, my preference.
Wicked habit. I can quit & go for months with no cravings, but give me a drink or two and I will succumb... Hypocritically though, I don't like the smell of excessive smoke and would prefer not to date anyone who is more than an occasional or 'social' smoker.
From someone I don't know? the quickest possible route to Read/Deleted... and needs to be mentioned twice as seemingly once isn't clear enough. Engage brain if you think you are going to engage mine...
Tongue in Cheek:
