Ed_from_Burnley Male (54) from Lancashire

Hello .. and thanks for taking time to read my details, I am nothing really special, just the guy next door type. I do enjoy life, life I believe is meant to be lived, that doesn't mean that i go bungy jumping every weekend, thats certainly not my type of living. I like to think that I have done something good every day, made this weary world in some way a little better.
I am a Burnley lad (not a dingle !), very well educated, very good but time consuming profession. I know my roots though, and stick by them,
I am a genuinely nice guy, sometimes a little shy, but a good conversationalist. I am not bad looking but could do with loosing a few pounds. I have two young daughters who do not live with me, but who I adore, and don't see often enough.
I enjoy visiting new places, especially off the beaten track, and eat out a lot. I am a die hard romantic, and I suppose it sounds really sad but I am looking for someone to share the rest of my life with. I am the eternal optimist despite life's setbacks at time, but I am warm, very caring, very loving, tactile, and good company.
I am seeking a well balanced, intelligent woman. I do not care about what you look like, if you are a nice person I will like you. If we have that strange thing called chemistry I will fall for you. I need honesty and trust, as well as space to be me and time to be us. A relationship needs working at, I seek someone who realises that and does not take it for granted.
I want a lady who has dreams, and is not too caught up with the banal side of life, I do not mind complicated, nor do I mind 'problems', problems are best shared.
I think (but this may change) I'd like someone quite local within an hours drive of Burnley. I would like to 'date'. to make new acquaintances but hopefully to find that special person.

Hobbies and interests icon My hobbies and interests

Cooking I love it, Cooking Tapas, Far Eastern, anything and everything, especially sea food, and chicken dishes.
Shopping Hate - do it out of necessity. (Unless its a 'boys toy' !!!)
DIY I am a Pro - if I say so myself. Love it, spend hours on it. Nothing is too big a challenge (and when it is I know who to call in).
Housework Clean but disorganised
Dining out Anything I cannot cook myself.
Movies Good story, Good twist, Edge of seat stuff
Theatre Contemporary, Musicals, fringe type stuff, not stuffy !
Music Everything and I mean everything (except this trance/house high energy rubbish). Particularly like Pink Floyd, Clifford T Ward, Neil Diamond
Gigs Last people : Leonard Cohen, Elton John, Going to Neil Diamond soon
Pubs A glass of really good red, with a meal usually cos I never ever drink and drive.
Clubbing Not for me
Newspapers and magazines Don't buy them, but read Sunday Times/Observer. Lightweight in the week Daily Mail !
Books Anything South American, British Male authors
TV Steer clear.
Watching sport No interest (Except vaguely like Burnley FC and suppose I am looking forward to the Olympics).
Playing sport Used to a lot - far too unfit know it would kill me - maybe something WE could work on ?
Hobbies Antiques, Car Boots, Actually having stalls at Farmers Markets, Travel (the more off beat the better). DIY

Hopes and dreams icon My hopes and dreams

In ten years I see myself Healthy a little more wealthy, in love, content
Who would I invite to a dinner party? You (?), and my two best friends. Who needs the rich and famous.
My ideal date Ideal first date - simple - picnic on a hill watching the sun set.
Or people watching while sipping coffee in Monaco or Nice
What would I never, ever give up? The belief that Love lies out there, cos if it don't what is the point.
If I had to give a speech on a subject I was passionate about ... Life - What's it all about ?
If I could visit anywhere in the world at any time in history To the birth of the Universe, to see what no one could ever see.
If I had a million pounds to give to charity UK - The NSPCC
World - Save the Children 50/50
My "and finally" section ... I believe that life is much more than the surface gloss, it needs working at, its a beautiful thing we are born to share, and we only get one.
