Canadian Adventurer
We Brits have a great advantage with the British Commonwealth. It allowed me to travel and live in chilly Canada right next to the Rocky Mountains where I worked sometimes as a mountain guide and other times I worked as an engineer. I also used to take long holidays to go climb big mountains, big walls, mid size walls and ice climbs and other adventurous activities like sailing. I have now toned those activities down dramatically and seek a good woman to raise our children. I have to be in Canada most of the time, Britain once a year and Portugal, I expect, around the annual British visits.

Insights

Insights

Do you believe in love at first sight?
To love some thing or some one requires care and constant attention so it cannot be love at first sight. It might be lust at first sight and that might carry you for the first few years but love comes in later. We all get very confused by this over used word, love. It takes time to build, among other things, and it's a subtle thing - almost indefinable but fluid like.
How many kids would you like to have?
2.
How important is someone's physical appearance to you?
Appearance is just the front of the total person. You have to look behind the facade, into the pool of their eyes.
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
You can't because the world works on balance of power and not just in the political arena. The weather is a balance of power, just like economics and just like a marriage. I have have my own personal adventure and biological clock which has to suit your personal adventure and biological clock for us to become successful raisers of children. It matters not how Britain, USA, Russia, China, Rome or the Ottoman Empire is a super power or not, but it does matter how world politics plays out in local currencies and how the price of oil and gas in Canada affects my income and where I should spend it. . . and on what.
What is the purpose of marriage?
To raise children so that they can become successful men or woman. And boys and men have a different set of hormones to girls and woman thus different values and different ways of doing things. So, as the French say, Vive la difference.
What is the most important lesson that you've learned?
If you really want something that seems to be impossible you have to give up trying.
What do your friends like about you most?
I quote from Pushing the Limits by Chic Scott in which one of my other best friends describes me as cheerful but with a serious determination to get things done.
What is the most important thing in a relationship?
Common goals.
What turns you on?
Classy femininity.
What do you hope to be doing five years from now?
Raising kids.
