Ello, I'm Jon (Jonny to my very, very close friends) I'm very very very nearly 40. Shoite...! (I am actually now 40) and I live by the sea in a small Devon town.
I can't kyak, don't own a 'Scooby Impreza' and couldn't give an ar_se what is up a mountain, if you want to trek for weeks up a grey hill in the wind to see the view, wearing uncomfortable boots, and unflattering cagoules, then have a lovely time. I have no pics of my pecs (sorry!) and I doubt if we meet we will be walking on the beach hand in hand, in the rain eating soggy chips...I'm not lazy, far from, just think that stereotype sucks :-)And the wine/dvd night in? No ta, wine tastes like vinegar, and anyway, t'wud be****nson's real deal on watchback..I have 2 of the dealers on my facebook, how SAAAAAD is that!
On a slightly more intellectual note, I am very interested in 20th century history, and have really enjoyed the recent BBC4 series about the history of film making. Are you still awake? If you are, maybe you should mail me huh?
And I really, really don't mind the beach. I live very near it, the dog loves it. Especially if it has good ice cream. (Her favourite flavour is mint choc chip but she does insist on having a chew stick as a flake) In fact, my dog is far cuter than me. Probably.
I'm a northerner by trade, and I guess have a rugby player type build, 6"2, bit daft, generous, laugh a lot, possibly a shade eccentric, work too hard, impulsive...I run a record label and an artist management company, working mostly with cult legend figures, rather than mainstream stuff, though I have branched into some boyband pop this year. I book bands for festivals, which is much less fun than it might seem but does have its moments.
Always happy to chat to people, not just interested in the size of your chest, or meeting you for a bunk up - personality much more important than the way anybody looks.
What do I like? (apart for all the hobbies in the 'hobbies' section) - clever, professional, you do something interesting, don't care what, maybe a bit fiery, plenty to say for yourself and I PROMISE I will at least take you to a jumble sale. Or a car auction.
I'm not shallow, jealous, controlling, borish, and love debate (as fierce and friendly as you like)
It would be nice to hear from you, even if just to say hi, I spend a lot of time tippy tapping on my pc at odd hours.
And in the meantime -

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A car boot sale. You can see all my worst, aggressive, grabbing, banzai traits all in one go, in 3 minutes. If we get past that, it will be true love, and you can do what you want for the rest of the day, I will pretend to listen, but be frequently on the phone, or reading a paper. How good does that sound!
