I can’t sleep with you without getting emotionally attached so you are shite out of luck if you are looking for an FWB or a casual hook-up.
I get sea-sick so you owning a yacht doesn’t impress me much.
I need to be physically attracted to you - no matter how great your personality is, if I don’t fancy you it won’t happen.
I don’t do long distance relationships, and that even means a long car journey within Ireland – you have to be within easy snogging distance.
I don’t fancy older men – probably comes from not having daddy-issues.
I don’t like chick-flicks or ultra-violent films – so don’t arrange a date around either of those.
I am a bit of a grammar Nazi.
I am traditional enough to like a man to pay on the first date – but I don’t order lobster and champagne.
I can appear very nonchalant on a first date – don’t be fooled. If I agree to a 2nd date I probably do like you.
I don’t like Skyping or talking on the telephone so if you don’t like email conversations followed by a meet-up at some point, I am not the person for you.
I am good company; take good care of my partner; am not a psycho-b*tch or a drama queen; am a good friend to have on your side.
I don’t come with emotional or other baggage, apart from dogs. I am self-sufficient in lots of ways, although DIY is still a bit of a no-go area for me – I don’t like getting electrocuted.
I don’t want your house, your money or your car – although I would hope that you have all of those things, because you are not getting mine either.
I don't mind if you have kids, as long as you have worked out a way to make both the kids and a relationship work.
I can cook, bake, grow my own veg and even put out the wheelie bin.
I am fit and active.
I am not looking for a husband, just a committed partner.
I am loyal and faithful, but not a dog.
I am as happy on the side of a windswept hillside as I am at a Picasso museum, and know how to dress appropriately for both
If you are obese, I won’t be interested, sorry.
Nor will I be if you are shorter than me, or significantly older or younger.
If your idea of being active is changing the station on the remote control, it won’t work.
If you don’t like women or you see them as second-class citizens put on this world to serve men, keep a-walking.
If you don’t like dogs, I am not for you.
If you are not erudite; and cannot write intelligent, witty mails, I will quickly get bored.
If you are self-obsessed and don’t feel an affinity to humanity and nature, I am not for you.
If you are stingy or small-minded, you’re not for me.
If you can’t catch my attention in the first mail, you probably never will.
I like a quiet self-confident man who is tall, attractive (to me) and enjoys life.
If you have no emotional hang-ups; are sound of mind and body; relatively active; and loves travelling and sightseeing, I want to hear from you.
If you are self-supporting; interested in learning; kind to humans and animals; chilled and relaxed; creative; good at DIY (I know, I am pushing it )
If you are good company; hav a similar sense of humour; and are looking for a long-term relationship with as little drama as possible, and know how to make a woman feel like the most special person on earth, then I am awaiting your mail with bated breath :-)
It pays for enjoyment of life
