Whilst my headline may have lost me the creationist audience I've been rereading the 'Naked Ape' recently by Desmond Morris and I think it's good to be reminded that at the end of the day we are still not that different from our simian cousins.

I live a relatively normal and full life as a Brit living in Seattle for the last 15 years. I enjoy exploring the neighborhoods, getting out and meeting new people, traveling and pushing my own limits and experiences. I think America's a great place with pleasantly optimistic people, no sense of boundaries to what they can do and a great outlook on what lifes all about. Now you may think that England is a peculiar, repressive, class ridden, land of orderly queues with pleasantries over tea and Mrs.Miggins crumpets, but thats just a facade to cover up the real weirdness. I like to think I've become a product of both cultures and who knows, the result may be something that you end up liking.
I'm not on any particular quest, just a social guy who has never been adverse to meeting attractive, funny, intelligent women and maybe this will turn some of you up, because I am sure as hell not finding many of you through the Psychic Friends Network.Just have an opinion, a passion and a wit. I generally date women who take an interest in their appearance and enjoy whatever it is they do. I'm sure if you've read this far, you're probably someone I'd get along with.
