Wonky wheeler looking for a qualified technician to guide me back to the path of trolley righteousness! I guess you'd like to get to know a little about the real me, well let's see if I can give you a bit of a Freudian insight.
My favourite things:
Analysing people's shoes; snickers; riding my bike (I've just reached level two (i. e. I can ride up a slight gradient without the need for a fully equipped emergency medical team at the top!); the great Surrey countryside (nothing better than donning my walking boots and going out for an eight mile walk...the things I do for an ice cream!); want to see more of the world and uncover its beauty as each journey, literal and figurative, helps to shape an individual.
My motto in life:
If you have nothing nice to say about a person don't say anything; don't let the little things get you down, allow yourself a bigger perspective.
Things in life I would like to do - but haven't done yet:
Own a cat!
Ok, now for a little seriousness (this is so difficult I'm having palpitations!). Well, I think it's fair to say that life without laughter for me is like not having enough air to breathe. Out of the two replies I'm going to get (did I say I'm an eternal optimist?), I can only reply if you give me a smile to start off, so no pressure!
Looks will fade and at 70 the only thing that will keep a partnership going will be laughter and the ability to hold a conversation (as well as holding your bladder, but I'm a few years away from that sort of worry!). I love confident, talkative people and find taciturnity a real dampener. So if you're the shy, retiring type I'm afraid I'll be gone before you get going!
I'm a child at heart and have all the silliness to go with it but I equally enjoy being mentally stimulated. I admire people who aren't afraid to be who they are and say what they think, people who are self-assured and able to handle difficult/different situations.
One thing I cannot tolerate is smoking, even if it is the odd cigarette. I don't have anything in common with those for whom every other word is a profanity or 'innit'. I also get peeved by text talk or bad spelling in profiles, uninspiring profiles and those without a picture. I am a self-confessed pedant and nothing is more reprehensible in an age where spell check is but a mere click away! I have my school teacher red marker at the ready, so beware!
I'm not a typical Asian and so I'm looking for someone who is like-minded in their outlook who can think outside the proverbial box and is not enslaved to cultural norms.
Finally, I have to say that I've seen so many vapid and uninspiring profiles it's astonishing. People seem so lax about putting a little effort into showing off their personality when trying to find someone. A little bit of thought, creativity and something that differentiates you from the thousands of stereotypical profiles will go a long way, trust me.
When I worded it courteously, the message didn't get through so now I have to be more obvious! If you express interest but don't include a password or make your photograph available, I will automatically decline the interest. I will also have to decline those who are not UK born and bred, apologies.
