3 things I could not live without:
Music, nature, sleep
A bit about me...:
A professional, decent and honest male. Qualified to PhD level in chemistry/molecular biology with a good career in regulatory affairs relating to food safety and the environment for a not for profit organisation.

I play the violin in my spare time in a couple of amateur orchestras and I am generally interested in the arts and cultural activities like going to museums, galleries, the theatre and to classical or folk music concerts. I'm also interested in gardening and growing my own fruits and vegetables, nature, hiking, astronomy, bird/wildlife watching, fossil hunting, folk music, listening to the occasional bit of cricket on the radio and so on. I'm not so interested in TV and football. I have been vegetarian all my adult life and am now virtually vegan, this is really important to me hence being on here!
For me the benefits of being vegan/vegetarian are...:
Feeling healthier and not being responsible for the killing of animals, also reducing my environmental footprint.
Funniest/worst comment I regularly hear about being a veggie/vegan...:
Do you eat fish.
I am hoping to meet...:
A kind, honest, considerate, professional and non-smoking vegetarian/vegan woman for a long term relationship. Hopefully someone who won't mind going to classical music concerts, gardening and going hiking.
If I could be any animal for a day, I would be a... because...:
A bird so that I could fly around.
If I won the lottery I would...:
Buy an island in Scotland to live on and turn it into a nature reserve.
