Where to start with this?...
I'm Ben, and I'm told by my friends and family that I'm a kind, caring, intelligent person with a witty sense of humour, so hopefully they are telling the truth!
I'm a bit of an old fashioned gentleman, well mannered and I'll treat a nice girl with the kindness they deserve. I'm a hopeless romantic at heart!
I like to see new places, I've seen quite a lot of the world but there are many more places left on the list.
I like the sea, open fires, pub gardens in the summer, old cities (Bruges is a favourite), modern cities (London and New York are near the top of my list), sucking a lemon and the faces dogs pull with their heads out of the car window (is there a happier creature on earth than a boxer with his cheeks and ears waving in the wind ten feet behind him on the motorway?!)
I'm looking for a nice girl that I can share a few laughs, a quiet night in with a glass or two of wine cuddled up on the sofa, trips to nice restaurants, a few adventures and spontaneous day trips and weekends away with. Somebody who can introduce me to new things would be a bonus... I'm willing to try my hand at pretty much anything.
I believe honesty is the best policy, so if you ask me a question you will get an honest answer.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Nothing too formal or extravagant... just a cup of coffee or a drink, or if the sun is shining a walk somewhere would do so as we can get to know each other and hopefully make each other smile.
Or maybe something completely different... Zorbing? Segway rallying? If you're feeling adventurous I'm up for anything!
