I'm an independent, self sufficient and self aware man, intelligent and compassionate.I embrace self improvement and have worked through my issues with help when required and I'm very much a glass half full type, I'm an affectionate guy and need that in a partner, too. I express my affection easily.Friends tell me I am too serious sometimes, but I do think I have a wry sense of humour.. I would describe myself as inclined to be secular with a deep interest what makes the human spirit tick. I aspire to be a caring, listening, considerate person who values connections with people over material prosperity. I am interested in the arts and culture, health conscious, open to companionship, friendship,fun, travelling, being of service to people and the planet.
