Hi i`m tony,54, i`m very laid back these day`s, ( perhaps too laid back for some ), probably due to the 7 or 8 ops I`ve had over the past few years for the tumour in my head, for which i finally had the all clear about 8 years back, puts a lot of things in perspective ( hence the laid back, why stress about things you cant change eh ? ),...i did`n`t get off scot free exactly, it left me with only one ear ( internally speaking ), but hey, i`m still waking up in the mornings!. friendly guy,easy going,my humour might be considered dry by some,ummmmm what else ?..i think i`m in pretty good shape for my age, thanks to my job of lorry loader/fork driver,which i`ve had for the past 18 or so years ( NIGHT SHIFT ) in a local upvc company.
Basically, i`m a frog who`s never going to turn into a handsome prince no matter HOW many times he`s kissed !..there endeth any reptilian similarities hahaha, in all other ways, i`m a dog, loyal, affectionate, protective, with the obvious exception of course that i dont****my leg up on your doors, nor do i grab your visitors leg in a "sign of affection" hahahaha......
i`m more a home body than a pub or club guy, ( a mug of tea beats a pint any day ! hahaha ), but the drink option on here does`nt really cover me, i`m not a "social" drinker, yet neither can i say i dont drink, i actually do enjoy a drink now and then, ( love bacardi+coke, with ice of course), but thats quite seldom, (thats not to say i`m a 13 stone couch potato ! ) :O)..
i hate football, so you`ll never find me getting legless down the pub watching the game, nor do i have any particular desire to go wafting off to far flung places, i never got bitten by the travel bug when theres plenty left to see in the uk,
As for interests, well i play guitar when the mood takes me, i enjoy walking the mountains,the beach is good, but the mountains are closer !, love reading, usually sci/fi or related topics, ie ufo`s etc, love a good yap about that.my top books are usually eric von danniklen ( in connection to ufo`s ). love watching a good dvd, (again, usually sci/fi ( you seeing a pattern here ! ),probably my biggest passion would have to be driving, i love it, and astronomy, any thing to do with space and the stars i find fascinating.
there`s nothing special about me !, no frills, oh and i love dogs, i had one until about 5 years ago when illness forced his departure, so this is the longest i`ve ever been without one, so most certainly a dog lover,
hmmmm ?...they say there`s "someone for everyone" out there... well mine must be ex SAS because she`s bloody good at this escape and evasion lark hahahaha :O).
PS...The wide age gap is simply for the forums .
PPS, I`ve had so many "want to meet you" notifications ! ( sounds brilliant does`nt it ? ), however, hardly any of them have even viewed me, and having on many occasions, mailed the person involved, i`m then informed,that its 1, "pressed by mistake lol" ...or...2, they never pressed it at all !....so, this meet me thing is a bit of a waste of everyone`s time really is`nt it ? :O) mails are much more accurate,and clear.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A random thought, ( this could very easily become habitual ! )...Why do "some" women state themselves as non smokers ... Then not bother to tick the box lower down where it asks "will date a smoker" , very contradictory, and confusing, hmmm.......
Oh and Ps, I have a beard now, ( not a grizzly adams ) .. but after a few years on here, I cant be a***d to take a new pic.
Another recent observation, you ladies who put "prefer not to say" regarding a car or not....then put up a pic of yourself clearly in the drivers seat wearing a seatbelt ... women are such mysterious ( but lovely ) creatures :O)
