What I like doing for fun is seeing my mates and having a laugh. Spending time with my family/daughter. Going for long walks in the countryside. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The place Ilike to go are nice restaurants and chilled out venues. I would like to travel much more and my dream holiday would be hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu.---------------------------------------------------------------

I like socialising with friends, stargazing, watching films, watching football.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm not a great reader more into listening to music and watching films, but if I would say The Complete Art of War by Sun Tzn.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am work in insurance, which is exciting :), it is stressful and at times demanding, but my dream job is to be a criminal defence solicitor as I completed my degree, but decided not to continue my studies.

30 year old man seeking genuine, thoughful, caring person to share life experiences with or someone just to talk to regarding getting through life with a colostomy.----------------------------------------------------------------------

I have had a hard time accepting my stoma and since my operation it seems that my life has fallen apart around me, my partner left me about 3 months after my operation, not just because of my operation but alot to do with depression in coping with illness over the years. I have had a series of operations for crohns and one for skin cancer related to the meds I was taking to treat my illness. My last operation performed approximately a year ago resulted in having a colostomy.


It doesn't matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other.
-- Good Will Hunting--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.
-- Kurt Cobain--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I always just hoped that, that I'd meet some nice friendly girl, like the look of her, hope the look of me didn't make her physically sick, then pop the question and... um... settle down and be happy. It worked for my parents. Well, apart from the divorce and all that!
-- Four Weddings and a Funeral----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The above sums me up regarding love and life.

I am not looking for the perfect person in my life just someone who can share my adventures whatever they may be and have fun whilst doing it.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I like to meet someone who is geniune, confident, honest and funny, but understanding.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I can be the shy retiring type in the corner of the room reflecting on why I am having such a rubbish time and feeling sorry for myself, but on the reverse I can be the life and soul of the party having a brilliant time, usually being very funny. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wish that I could find my soulmate if they exist, but as Matt Damon said, 'it doesn't matter if the guy is perfect or the girl is perfect, as long as they are perfect for each other'.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
