I'm interested in:
Long Term Relationship
[Last logged on : last month]
Have lived happily for the past sixteen years in London, before that in Eritrea, Cambodia, Germany and France and feel at home pretty much anywhere, though I will be living on these shores for the foreseeable future. I love cycling and have cycled half way around Iceland. Other interests include swimming, the arts in general and reading. Keeping up with friends and family is important to me and I enjoy my own company, too .
Looking forward to getting to know someone who lives his life to the full, whatever his interests are, is passionate about something, whatever that may be, and is interested in making a difference, however that manifests itself.
This photo was taken in February 2016.Although I've ticked "want no children", I'm open to meeting a guy who already has children (living with him or not), or, equally, someone who doesn't have kids.
