I'm a single man who has travelled different parts of the world, done many jobs, didn't find my calling until I was 31 as a nurse, I'm now a charge nurse working in a very special cancer hospital in Manchester. Not many people believe what I do when they first see me as I am covered in tattoos. My ideal partner would be someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously, likes to laugh, and most importantly is honest and truthful. And isn't materialistic and is willing to accept others for who that are. And I'm sorry, you need to like animals, especially dogs, I have a rescue lurcher and he is my side kick. With a first date I don't really mind where it is, it could be drinking or just coffee, as long as it's comfortable for us both. I haven't been dating in a long long time, so I am nervous but ready to take that step. My roots are in Scotland but I've made a life for myself in Manchester and would like to share it with someone special.
