  • Description


    Hi I'm Andy, I am a sociable and fun guy, I am told i have a great sense of humour:)
    I run two businesses mostly from home, one in computing and the other as a massage therapist and I also do some occasional DJ-ing work.

    I live in Hartlepool near the north east coast of england. I enjoy staying healthy, going to the gym, as well as relaxing and chatting.

    I am a positive good natured person and I really love life!
    I feel lucky to have met so many nice people, to have so many good friends and great opportunities.
    I always try to use natural products, especially for healing and wellbeing,
    I always try to protect the environment and use recycled products wherever possible.
    I love nature from forests to ocean.
    I love spending time outdoors, doing things like mountain hiking or camping and the feeling of connectedness to nature.

    The atmosphere here is happy and relaxed.

    You would have your own room with a very comfortable bed and a smart TV, also access to fast wifi and a computer if you need one.
