persona_non_grata Male (68) from North London

I nearly wrote that I was tall, dark and handsome then decided I would put a photo on soon, so I'd best be truthful or keep quiet! I suppose I'm fairly average in most respects but I'm quite happy with that!
I have three grown up children who are all off doing their own thing now but we stay in touch and are very close!

* I'm not looking for a relationship at the moment. Have had some family problems, feeling a bit down and just want to chill but decided to remain on here to chat to friends who have been very supportive and hopefully I will soon be back to my old chirpy self! *

Looks arent too important although you need some attraction ..could be physical or mental. Most of the girls I know seem to be mental (only joking of course ..... or am I ?)
