So you actually want to know something about me? Why? Are you bored? Oh well. Just to satisfy your idle curiosity and my manic egotism I’ll tell you something about me!!! I am a 32-year-old guy, who lives in Stamford, in the East Midlands, England. I was born in Chorley, Lancashire, England, on the 29th September 1979. Most people don’t believe me that I was born in England due to my strong Scottish accent. My star sign is Libra. I am 5’9” tall, 30″ waist, with blonde hair, which is sometimes short, sometimes long. I have light brown eyes. Which most people think are very sexy. I just don’t see it, myself.
