At the risk of causing a preconceived opinion from you, I write this as it appears I have to.
I am honest (sometimes to honest and to my detriment, but if that's a bad trait, then, I don't want to change). Trustworthiness and honesty from mutual friends and partners are paramount. I enjoy sport (sorry) and have been actively involved in the Racing Industry over many years.
My life has been great, and I am blessed to have both parents still alive, happy, healthy and well. I have 2 adult children who are very special to me. I have travelled substantially, but are much happy travelling as a couple. There are no tables for one at restaurants generally.
Formally a teacher and educational administrator, I retired (due to numerous knee reconstructions thanks to my sporting history) and ended up doing financial planning as an adviser to small business.
I subsequently purchased and ran a motel and apartment complex for 6 years.
Basically I believe that life is too short to not be enjoying each day to the fullest, and not having a special person to share that adventure with.
Preconceptions from photos or from reading these bio's do not always reflect the person one is.
Thanks for reading, keep an open mind and keep safe
