On the conveyor belt of life I must be nearer the end than the beginning ?!
I'm past my sell by date ! I'm falling to bits with every year that passes but I'm not vain, and am cheerful and so I try to be happy and try to enjoy the life I have.
What on earth am I doing on a dating site, now I'm a mature gentleman?
Sometimes mature,sometimes not ! ha ha !
Ever the optimist, I suppose.
About myself - I'm outgoing,sociable, humorous,open minded and down to earth.
I would like to meet a lady who can still enjoy a laugh and is willing to grow old,gracefully and disgracefully,as the mood/mind and body takes us.
I like people with values/principles who are unafraid of laughing at themselves or letting their hair down,as that is like me. Bossy,control freaks are not welcome.
Getting old doesn't have to be doom and gloom, nor does it have to be laugh a minute but it should be about striking the right chord for each other to be happy,as life allows, and importantly to have fun, before we are pushing up the daisies or in the fiery furnace.
I'm not looking to travel the world but I am open to some travel abroad [prefer short haul these days], and venturing around the uk.
I'm not looking for someone who needs to be on the go all the time,as I like pottering around and going where the mood/flow takes me.I enjoy home life but am not a total stick in the mud.
My profile photo is not the most flattering but I'm no better in real life ! LOL !
I like escapism,creativity and thinking out the box but don't mind normality and being boring ! ha ha !
Personality wise,I'm a paradox in that I can be interested in deep,intellectual subjects but can just as easy be enraptured in watching 'Loose Women' or re-runs of The Benny Hill Show !
Among my interests are music,art,green issues,space exploration and spirituality. I like board games, and indoor games. Like chasing each other around with feather dusters in the nude.Those were the days ! Lol !
I mean scrabble,card games,trivial pursuit etc but can still dream.
The photo was taken on the 9/7/2020 when my nephew [who was then 32 and a pal] came around to my home,and we sat in my garden on a boiling hot day enjoying the sun,with some beer and a few bites to eat,hence fooling around in the hat/glasses.
Me thinks, that hat was a great charity shop find ! Others may not ! ha ha !
By the way, NOT into tattoo's or piercings [don't mind sensible earrings or the odd small tattoo/s in discreet/covered place. Not judgemental, just a preference.I like humans to look natural, not unnatural. Lippy and a bit of make up aside.
Can't stand people who swear all the time either. The odd expletive,yes but not every other sentence !
Non smoker preferred,too.
I've never been a smoker. The odd ciggie probably wouldn't bother me but no puffing chimneys wanted.
If you meet my criteria, then all I want is you to be you.
What do you like most about where you currently live?
Oasis in a desert. Near to amenities but rural living.
What are you looking for in a partner?
Just someone down to earth, genuine, kind hearted and a nice person.
What music do you like?
Ecletic tastes. Love music.
