In His Own Words

About him

I would like to think that my friends believe that I am an honest individual who support my belief that where possible everyone should make a contribution to the community in which they live. For my part I am a volunteer driver taking those without transport to medical appointments, shopping and visiting friends.

I have been passionate about theatre for as long as I can remember going back to the age of 10. The sheer spectacle I find totally absorbing. As a young man, I performed roles, did a lot of back stage work and for a period of some 25 years starting in 1979, produced and directed eleven children's musicals with casts of up to 50, about ten concerts and even wrote a review and couple of plays.

Whilst I still enjoy going to the theatre, my active interest in 'getting involved' has declined and I am now getting more and more involved in a charity which supports lonely and vulnerable individuals. I have recently been appointed Chair of the Trustees.

The joy of listening to music is difficult to beat, the melody, the harmony, the rhythm and the orchestration or arrangement is pure joy. Although, I do not play an instrument, I acquired a magical item of software which allows me to write and playback music I have written. Of course, the playback is not like the real thing as it lacks empathy and interpretation - but is enough to appreciate my modest efforts.

I know a bit about computers, after all I worked in the IT industry up to the mid 90's. But then it all changed and I enjoy the challenge of trying to keep up!
I enjoy reading, strolling in the countryside, visiting places of historical interest but I have to say I have little interest in sport.

My outlook on life is pretty basic - keep it simple and enjoy life as you don't know when it will end.

So there you have pen-picture of me. If you think you would like to find out more, then please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, thank you for your time for reading my guff.

About his ideal match

I am seeking the friendship of someone who would enjoy my interests but who has interests of their own and to which I may be introduced. Honesty is important to me as it should be to anyone I meet. They should not be afraid to voice their views on any subject as I am quite happy to engage in discussion. After all, we humans should be talking rather than emailing or texting when we are in close proximity together.

I live on my own and enjoy cooking which I would hope my new friend would share as an activity we could do together. I like my garden which has a wide mix of plants although I know very little about them individually and frequently seek advice from friends. I like to think that I have developed my garden from what can only be described as a 'bit of a dump' into something very much better - but then others may differ. So, any contribution or comment you may make would be most welcome.

If you are an avid follower of sport, then, with respect, may I suggest you move on?

I have said that I am seeking friendship but I would hope that it would develop into something closer whilst still living separately. How the relationship develops after that would be up to both of us to decide - I would not want to be or place a new friend under pressure.
