I have been here too long! I am a bit overweight due to a thyroid problem and trying to get fit again; I am untidy. Well, those are my good points!!
Before we begin: My primary home is in the Cher dept (18) BUT I do, occasionally, send time in West Sussex (+ Brighton) I am very laid back, (liable to fall off my chair if I lie back any more!!) Je suis Anglais but I enjoy the peace and quiet of the French country-side. Not particularly materialistic and prefer the company of one (special) woman. Love all sports and LOUD music (yes, yes I know - there is a contradiction: peace & quiet AND loud music). I don't do classical but if you are into people like The Beatles, Pink, Snow Patrol, Tom Petty, Frankie Miller, Killers, Lana Del Rey or Steve Winwood we'll get on fine. Recently got into Joe Bonamassa.
We can all be a bit 'crabby' at times - me too - but that is life. I am not, by any means, perfect and don't pretend to be. I am flexible and tolerant of other's views and beliefs. (as long as you respect mine). Most of the time I am a cheerful, happy little bunny!! BUT I can be a bit cynical. (and a bit silly at times).
I don't do religion: But I do respect other's folly in their worship.
My ideal?? No such mythical creature exists; none of us is perfect but I suppose someone tolerant who is able to make a nice cup of tea would be a bonus; oh! and someone who smiles! A happy smile goes a long long way!! Age, race or religion is not an issue, although the obligatory sense of humour is a must.
You need to be relatively close to either The Cher/Allier or West Sussex OR willing to travel and meet me half-way. I can't afford to go half-way across Europe (or the rest of the world) to meet someone. I certainly am not stupid enough to send money to you on the off chance that you might come here. Be sensible!!
A bit of the English language always helps... I speak a little french... Txt spk is ALWAYS ignored!
"Hi, how are you?" is for morons, idiots and the lazy... Don't expect a replyi
Why do I put an age range as low as 35?? Simple; some women lie about their age. (yes, I know, men do too but I am not looking for men) or they forget to update it.
I am always amused that people disappear when you say you don't have the money to get them here!!
Yes, my profile says "The Cher" and mentions "West Sussex"; that is because I travel between the two, (not as much as when I originally wrote this profile) but if your profile tells me that Paris is in the Rhone Alps or Provence; or that London is in Lancashire then I will probably ignore you. If you can't tell me about where you live (if I ask) then are you really there? Are you who you say you are?
If you really are serious then you will have a CLEAR photo which shows your face, won't you?? Or am I being a bit too naive? Four or five photos of your pets or grand kiddies will make me think that you are a one dimensional moron.
If you send your e-mail address on the first, second or third message I will NOT respond!
Do you know what the indefinite article is??? If you don't use it in your profile you will be unlikely to receive a reply.
What more is there to add to white/caucasian... Fair skinned and freckles... I have blue eyes!!
