Mr_Manners: Weathers fine, wish you were here...
Own hair. eyes and teeth in near enough original colours.
Dry/zany sense of humour and a 'prize bloke going to waste' (apparently)!
Slightly unconventional, prefers same. I enjoy being around creative expressive people with a wicked sense of humor, individuality and get up and go. Some might say quirky or funky. Eccentric even.
In a typical working week my evenings are spent listening to music, cooking, movies etc.
On weekends I like to travel to events and gigs when possible. I also like some theater, scenic walks whatever is to hand. Not a pubs and clubs person, not since I grew up anyway ;)
Trust, loyalty and respect are the essential values I uphold and seek - they are non-repairable and irreplaceable, so if you're the careless type who breaks them off you pop!
Thanks for reading, if you think there is a conversation to be had please drop me a line.
I'll just put it out there that one liner messages that look copied and pasted won't get a reply, all others will (unless abusive)..
That probably sums it up, but if you would like like more detail...
What Are We Doing here!?:
Here because I'm selective not defective, widening the scope of finding someone with whom I wouldn’t ordinarily have the chance to meet. In other words, here because of higher standards not low ones!
I get out and about occasionally but the interests I follow don't really involve active socialising. I get bored routinely going to pubs and clubs and live in a quiet area, I don't go 'on the pull' it just isn't me. So here casting a wider net in the digital age.
I've used a silly profile name, I believe there's just too much disclosure and lack of respect for privacy these days. I'm trying to avoid the feeling of flicking through a catalogue.
I am not an 'applicant' thank you. We don't need to apply for civility, friendship or company.
How I Roll
Not in a rush or interested in serial dating as a hobby. Quality over quantity.
I'm chilled and make an effort to be courteous and considerate, I'm not needy, clingy or jealous and believe in equality, sharing and trust.
I wouldn't waste time on trying to start something with little or short prospects, nor do I want an online harem!
Music's always been a staple part of my life, I prefer it live and have traveled far and wide for it. I also 'accumulate' records with, very very eclectic underground tastes. The only thing I can't listen to is electronic banging and beeping made with software but that's not really music anyway.
Creativity and culture.
Travel, seen a fair bit of the world - not via the usual package holiday/tourist trail.
At home I tackle home 'improvements', cook a bit and enjoy some tranquility. To music.
Movies, horror movies mainly or retro b-grade stuff, cult cinema etc.
Events, visiting places, trips and interesting holidays - on my own in recent times. I've now taken and enjoyed many long solo journeys, nationally and internationally - it's very character building!
Apparently blokes send so many dodgey messages that you ladies get inundated, and get too worn out and fed up to read and respond - well putting messages in bottles to throw into the 'dating pool' seems a bit of a thankless lottery to me. So in return for typing in the message box here you're effort will be rewarded courteously :D Shy kids get no, erm, fish!
Or to put it another way - You ladies get flooded with messages, but they are all from the 'wrong types'.
Me, the 'right type' fella gets hardly any messages at all because you ladies are too busy wading through messages from the wrong 'uns.
If you're smart you can have a captive audience with a civil response guaranteed from a non-wrong 'un by sending a quick message to make yourself known. Simples,
Only three simple things are asked:
1. Your message has more than three words to it and isn't a copied and pasted pitch for all.
2. It is in English and basic education level spelling is employed for one syllable words at least. A av ad enuf ov dis.
3. If a conversation ensues please don't just rudely decide not to respond one day, kindly conclude - it is easy and painless. Manners cost nowt - worth millions!
My idea of a date is a sociable meeting of two single people who feel they get along well enough to have bit of banter doing something leisurely.
I feel that doing so via a dating site makes things contrived and overly scrutinised, which is a shame and defeats the object.
So, should things get to that stage let's set off politely getting to know each other in the knowledge that stopping at any level of friendship is an option.
We may get along - that would be good.
We may become friends - that would be great.
We may even be suited. That would get us off here at the very least!
I am definitely, truly, honestly and genuinely single.
I really am not serial dating or playing around, not dating at all in fact.
I really have no baggage or crazy exes waiting to step back into the picture, or any other complications that would impose on a suitor.
I assure you I don't possess any x-rated photos of myself nor am I interested in circulating any, nor am I interested in using the site for cheap thrills of any nature or picking off one night stands.
To conclude, I am not a fan of this dating site penpal lark at all it is laborious and ridiculous in this day and age. If we do engage well enough on here then at some point I will want to move away from it to either calls or instant messaging so if that is a no go for whatever reason let's not waste each others time.<br/
My Ideal Match:
Life's good. A set-for-life lady companion to share with in contented harmony would be a bonus. I'm prepared to embark on a relationship, without trying to coerce one. I'm fine with my own company so happy to sit it out 'til the right spark comes along.
I would like an equal, not someone to just be a sidekick or a domestic. A companion, not someone to fill a role or gap. A prized bestie to whom giving and helping is my pleasure. And a bit of romance of course, you can't turn that on like a tap for just anyone!
I'm not looking for someone 'normal' - as in typical/average - I'm looking for someone special and full of character to be in a healthy lifetime partnership with.
You could find yourself taking off at short notice to a beach, theater, diner or some special event or other on a semi-regular basis, so you'd need to be a bit spontaneous and open minded. You probably won't find pubs and clubs on the agenda, though not entirely ruled out. I do like a drink for an occasion or in good company, but not routinely.
