In His Own Words

About him

I'm very energetic and active, cycling with a club several times a week and also walking when I get time, painting with watercolour and maintaining my lovely old house and garden. I enjoy reading, mainly European history and I also collect various antiques and have a great companion in a rather large ginger tom (who regretfully can't ride a bike).
I'm confident, have a sense of humour (maybe a little too irreverent sometimes) and I consider myself reliable, faithful and compassionate but, I trust, not boring. I consider friendships very important, and although I have plenty of friends, they are nearly all male so there is a big gap socially, and the evenings are far too quiet.
However I'm not really the pub lunch with wine type, the long lie-in with the papers, the cruise or the beach holiday. I love open spaces, walking on Dartmoor and being in the wind and weather. I am, I suppose, quite restless, and that is one reason that I have traveled so much.
I grew up in California and have been back and forth for many years, and I've hitchhiked, backpacked and traveled five star in Europe, Asia and the US. I've driven a bus to Kathmandu and worked for a few years at a long-haul air steward. I've also run my own successful business and I'm now happily retired, just doing a bit of work when I feel like it.
A solo cycling holiday in Brittany recently was wonderful, but would have been much improved with an easy-going lady companion.

About his ideal match

I think the lady I would be happiest with would be quite independent and confidant, but similar to myself in that she enjoys being in a couple too. She would be pretty laid back with a well developed sense of humour and be physically active. Education, background or religion are unimportant, I think travel shows similarities rather than differences. It would be great to find someone to socialize with, to walk with or maybe even share a cycling tour of Europe or the US.
