downtide’s story

An Answerbag refugee.

I’m British, 47, married with a bright and beautiful daughter of 25. I was born in a rural village but I now live in the country’s 3rd largest city (Manchester) and I love it here, I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Actually I couldn’t go back to country living as I have a visual disability which means I can’t ever drive a car, so I need to live somewhere with a good public transport network. And before you ask, no I don’t miss it. I don’t mind visiting but more than a few days and it bores me to death.

I am an amateur singer; for the past 20-odd years I’ve been involved with the local folk music scene and I also do a mean karaoke when I get the chance. My other hobbies are painting, drawing and writing.

I’m sociable, somewhat extrovert and I describe myself as an optimistic realist. I’m an atheist but also on the search to rediscover a spiritual side of myself that I lost somewhere along the way. I’m also transsexual; born female but identify as male and have recently started on my journey of transition..

Places I’ve Lived: UK: Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Manchester (current)
