Hi, thanks for your interest and for taking time to check my profile out. It’s always difficult to describe self but I consider that I’m mild mannered, down to earth, level headed, multi-skilled and can turn my hands to most things kind of a guy. From a Saturday job stacking shelves in a supermarket aged 15 to middle management positions. I can hold my own in most situations and also interact and connect with people from most walks of life.
Have lived a varied life and traveled widely but there are places I still want to go. I like sports, (football, tennis, boxing, track and field) The outdoors, (mountains and breath taking scenery, the Grand Canyon for example was an awe inspiring/spiritual experience. I enjoy all forms of theater and also cultural and fringe events, visiting historical sites and places, documentaries as well as keeping up with current and world affairs.
I like a good joke and to laugh, it’s good for the soul. (I’ll share mine with you if you share yours with me, jokes that is!) I’m easy going, free spirited, modest, a bit reserved at first but warm up quickly. Intelligent, genuine, a good listener and conversationalist, unconventional, open minded and adventurous, I'll try most things once.
I migrated from Jamaica to the UK at an early age, where I grew up, went to school, work, etc. I’m now retired and settling back home in Jamaica where I am taking a slower but active pace of life, building my house/guest house, attending to my farm and pursuing other entrepreneurial activities while enjoying the amenities of the island. (Did my volunteering work when younger, lol...!!) but still maintain an interest in community work and development.
I’m interested to meet those with similar or complimentary qualities and outlook for friendship that hopefully will grow into a serious 1 on 1 relationship and perhaps more. That is meaningful, fulfilling and rewarding on all levels, of the growing old gracefully together variety. I believe If one start as friends they are more likely to end as friends, even if not together. Mutual attraction is important.
If you have never been but have always wanted to visit Jamaica, this could be an opportunity, come check us out in one trip. I’m a gentleman at all times, always respectful, polite and considerate, no pressures. As MLK once said, "Faith is taking the first step -- even when you can't see the whole staircase".
