Hi!! Ive only recently moved to Stoke on Trent having recently left the Navy after 9 1/2 years. Im hoping to go to university in 2009 as a mature student to study psychology with the aim getting into a career in mental health.
I enjoy going to car shows and track days and am a bit of a car nut but prefer having fun on the road or track rather than "bling" or "chav" mods some do. Im a fan of a good movie and occasionally go the cinema when theres something good on. Prefer action/thriller/suspense movies but have been known to watch the odd so called girly movie!! I like helping my friends out and chatting either on the phone or MSN. Im quite good at basic DIY and occasionally build my own little electric projects either for the home or car and i like messing around with gadgets.
Im a bit of a kid at heart and have a few "boys toys" to keep me busy!! And as a result im quite good with entertaining kids (ok kids beating me up for their own entertainment, but you get the picture!!!). Although im not that fit at the moment (my current goal is to loose wieght and get fit again!!) I do enjoy outdoor and water pursuits and if i havent tried it Im more than willing to have a go!! Im not interested in football so no "football widows" if you met me!! I prefer rugby and motorsport but im not obsessive over supporting teams like some are!
Im an easy going guy who can be quite shy until I know you then i am quite talkative!! Im caring and empathetic and readily want to please, but im not a mindreader!! LOL so I value openness both ways! I dont mind the odd secret here and there as everyone has a past of sorts but i believe honesty is important as well as having the confidence to ask for help when you need it rather than a smaller problem spiralling!! I get more pleasure from knowing im making someone happy!!
Im looking for someone who is fun to be with and has a loving personality who likes hugs and cuddles!! Some one who i can share my hobbies and likes with and they can share theirs with me. I dont limit myself to set types of people as i believe its the balance of factors that make for a great relationship and im open to trying new things with someone who is adventurous in return.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Things i might do on a first date depends on the likes of who i am dating!!! Primarily we need to have fun, be that watching a movie, a nice meal out, going to a fair or anything that will be fun!! After all as long as we have fun the night is a success whatever happens!! As well as having fun, i also would want to get to know you so having a nice chat during the evening would be great too. Im not pushy and wont put pressure on a "date". There is far too much anxiety and stress with the so called traditional "dating game" and as i said earlier having fun is more important and if we also like each other then great, if not then at least we had a good time!
