Hi...I'm a divorced 56 year old now looking for a fresh start.
I used to be pretty outgoing and sociable but 20 years of less than ideal marriage has dulled that particular edge a bit hence the need for a fresh start.
I'm stable, reliable, easy going and solvent...I used to have a good sense of humor that I need to re-capture (see above)...my two best, lifelong friends say I can make the right woman very happy.
Being totally honest, I'm probably not the worlds greatest communicator as I hate argument and confrontation...I'm also quite independent and self reliant...I can cook (reasonably well but am not really a "foodie"), clean, shop etc and yes...I do change the loo roll and put the toilet seat down...
My main interests are skiing and target rifle shooting..this doesn't mean I'm some frustrated Rambo but is a very precise and disciplined sport in which I compete at national level but if you have any strong moral objections to firearms I'm probably not for you.
As a skier, a skiing partner would be useful or at least someone who'd be willing to give it a go...failing that, someone who understands when I disappear for the odd week with friends in the winter.
I have two children now at uni who will be living with me part time during holidays...whilst they continue to be my priority in life, as intelligent, well balanced young adults they don't really need me much now and are more like young friends (especially when I'm buying)...
I like all animals except dogs which I have a bit of an issue with.
I like all music except C & W and opera but mostly listen to current stuff which apart from anything else, keeps me in touch with the kids.
I'm well read and traveled and can hold an intelligent conversation with anyone about pretty much anything...I'd like to travel more but only with the right person...travel with the wrong person is just plain miserable...
I've owned my own small design and manufacturing business for 12 years now and before that worked for the same company for 25 years...I enjoy what I do and am lucky that it's also financially rewarding. Whilst being flexible, I do tend to work reasonably long hours but not excessively so.
I consider myself an ex-smoker as I switched to electronic cigs a year ago...some people still consider this to be smoking but there's no smell or health issues...
I lost most of my hair in my early 20's and am perfectly happy with that...I don't think I'd change it if I could...I never have bad hair days...
