About me...? I am a bit unusual to be honest, not in a awkward way or anything, quite the opposite! Although I never thought of myself as a nerd, I can't deny it - I just love thinking about things: I have a very active and curious mind! At the same time I was always a complete daredevil and off gallivanting on adventures..I ran away from home when I was 18 months old to get close to the car wash down the road from our house, I was fascinated by that car wash :p. Being so pumped full of energy and running all over the place all the time, my mum channeled it into sports: lots of rugby, swimming, athletics, tennis, football, anything really.. I have always been very determined and had a strong drive to explore the unknown. All in all I was a mischievous (often got into trouble!) nerd, incredibly sporty, mad about music.. all my pocket money was spent on music cassettes and I would just sit for hours listening to them. I grew up in Dublin (for 14 years), a product of an Irish father and French mother who happens to be the strongest women I have ever encountered! I went to a French school there and would visit France at least 3 times a year. Later on we moved to the Alps in France where I spent 5 years of my life (my family still lives there today). So I really grew up with both cultures.. although I do feel more Irish than French! But essentially feel like neither at the same time, which in retrospect I think was a good thing and taught me a lot about myself and identity in general. I am an honest person with a good heart and feel bad when someone is mistreated. Very boyish in certain aspects yet somewhat feminine in others. I can do small talk, but would rather skip it.. I like substance, and genuineness. I am no saint and have my flaws, but people seem to enjoy my company a lot and feel comfortable around me. I was always lucky that way and easily made new friends when moving from place to place. I work hard and that is important to me, I want to keep on building, learning and to grow. Money is not a strong driving force for me, I have always viewed it as a by-product. I may be surprisingly open at times, and then hard to reach at other times, but some things in life have been hard to deal with and I feel I am allowing myself to open up and let people in more and more. I was always loving and had a lot to give but some things can hurt you in ways which are so deep that you don't allow yourself to feel the pain and it can take years for it to come out. But as it gradually does come to surface, you can let people back in and love again, that feels nice :). If you have read this far you have probably gathered I am not the alpha-male type and not very interested in superficial things. If you are looking for a "strong" man and a traditional style of relationship, then we're fundamentally looking for different things. PS: I shaved my hair off recently so I will upload a couple of updated pictures when I get the chance!

Firstly, I want to say sorry to anybody who has taken the time to message me, if I’ve not responded. The truth is that I never anticipated so many people being interested in me, and I just don’t have the time to reply to every message I get! I’m flattered though. Because of that, I’ve been mostly ignoring messages and just reading what people have written about themselves on their profiles. I’ve read that on dating websites 90% of decisions to message other people are based on a person’s profile pictures. In other words, they judge a book by its cover. I’m shallow to an extent, it’s an inevitability of being human. But I find kindness, intelligence, and a thirst for fun so much more attractive. Beauty, as they say, is in the eye of the beholder. ***** We are all searching for happiness. I am no exception. Yet society constrains us with rules and expectations, we are moulded into the citizens of the system. We distract ourselves from the mundane every day, and convince ourselves we are happy. But I am not happy with that. I have this desire burning inside me, to break the chains holding us back - chains that only exist in our minds. I am not a sheep. I will not be a slave to society. I will live freely. So, if you dare take a leap of faith, run through the wilderness with me, feel the air sting your cheeks, climb mountains your hand in mine, breathe the salt of the sea with me, lay under a blanket of stars, chase fireflies in the night with me, watch the sun rise from every corner of the earth, scrunch the sand between your toes with me… find out who you really are with me. ***** In my short time here on Earth, I've done many things I'm proud of and many I'm not. Dwelling on mistakes can send even the strongest of us on the downward spiral. Of that I've been guilty before. But those ghosts which haunt us also push us on. ***** I've not long started studying to become a chartered tax accountant. I'm working full time at an accountancy firm to gain the experience, and of course earn a living. But my passions extend far beyond my job; I love physics, mathematics, computing and philosophy. After I become qualified, I plan to take a physics degree in my own time and develop myself as a programmer. Perhaps it sounds like I haven't decided on one career. And you'd be right, but who ever said we must live a static life hmmm? ^.^

At one level it feels like the hardest thing to do and yet there is something compelling about the question in this context. So, I shall try and describe myself as i know best and then attempt to talk about my match with that special 'feel good' factor. I love life for what it serves up on a daily basis, the great and the good, the challenges and the uncertainties. Never a dull moment as I welcome the distractions, seek choices and make decisions. I like being positive, it’s my natural state of being. It helps me to deal with the different moods of life with a certain richness that keeps me interested in the next experience. I love people who naturally smile and take pleasure in simple things. A beautiful smile just makes my day, fills me with a sense of beauty that i cannot explain. I love its energy and what it does to me. I am told I am a very good listener and I think it comes from being a 'people's person'. I enjoy making friends and meeting people from varied backgrounds. I tend to be fairly perceptive and intuitive about people. Equally, i find time for myself and enjoy a bit of reflection. It helps to keep things in perspective and a bit of balance. Academically, I studied the Sciences and loved Mathematics. Professionally, I enjoy the buzz of financial markets and investing. It is quite fascinating to see how markets connect and what creates a global market. At a personal, though, I love Arts and its creativity. It is the closest thing to being soulful even though inanimate. I enjoy music in its different forms and it fills my personal space with ease. I enjoy keeping very fit and healthy. I have a universal view about religion and tend to be a ‘political moderate’.
