I'm not going to write too much here because I think the vast majority of people pre-judge simply by looking at a profile picture and think they can learn about a person by a crappy photo. The photo is recent, it is me as I am, but at this very moment, I desperately need a haircut.
It's not a ten-year-old photo or fake picture, it 'tisme'.
If you feel I'm not your type simply by looking at my picture - you are definitely not my type, so no need to read on.
If you've got this far, why not get in touch and start a chat, it's free, I'm open and honest...and I don't bite (yet) but it can be arranged!
Imagine a great big bear, nearly six foot and over 22 stone.
That was me not too long ago but since then I’ve shed over 7 stone and still going. Still trying to shed a couple of stone and determined to do so.
This time last year I was as pleased as punch, luckily, I had no sagging skin and ready to join some local groups to get fit and trim.
Maybe Yoga I thought, or this Norwegian Pole Walking whatever that is, not pole vaulting, I hope. Anyway, I was up for meeting people that would give me the opportunities to join them in doing things that will get me moving, my heart pumping and shedding more weight.
I’m semi-retired and fully intend to go into full retirement fit, healthy and getting out and about.
If you are contemplating joining me in my quest, I need to give you fair warning that I have a wicked sense of humour and laugh at life quite a lot and enjoy making people laugh.
I was once a pisshead but now I don’t drink nearly as much (I spill most of it) and I don’t smoke, I don’t like to be around a smoker although many are very nice people!
I have struggled with putting up pictures but I have made the effort, they’re not great but it is me and they are recent.
Because I have taken the trouble to show myself, I won’t reply to those who haven’t been bothered to post theirs. I think that’s fair enough!

I tend to laugh at life, I observe things and see the funny side, even on the dark side.
What music do you like?
I have very mixed, diverse eclectic taste. As an example, I'd never really heard of Phil Spector but on hearing about his death, the news played many of his songs that I liked back in the day. I love Queen, especially; Freddie Mercury.I hate really loud thumping music.
What has been the highlight of your life so far?
I've had many highlights and don't wish to boast about them, but I might mention them in a discussion.
My immediate thoughts are my two daughters that I am immensely proud of and losing 7 stone in a year and still coming down.

A calm and peaceful retirement
