In His Own Words

About him

As a teacher of English / Literature (retired) I should perhaps find it easy to write about myself - but I don't! I think my friends would describe my as kind, thoughtful and generally easy going. I am an optimistic, quietly confident person, happy within myself. However, I am also one of life's enthusiasts - throwing myself whole-heartedly into hobbies, activities and people that are important to me. While quite at ease in larger groups, I generally prefer more intimate surroundings.

Although retired from the classroom, I am still actively involved in education as a senior examiner for several exam boards and currently I am writing two GCSE Literature Study Guides for a publishing company. I live quite an active life: my hobbies and interests include listening to music - mostly classical, especially opera,( but my tastes are quite catholic); running (since I was 14); reading (since I could); dog walking (whenever I've had a dog!); and all things Irish - music, culture, history (since childhood). I am also active in two voluntary roles, both involving our Legal system. I love to travel, but so far haven't done as much as I would have liked.

I have two children and two grandchildren who I see regularly - my son sometimes stays with me.

I love being retired - the only problem is that I never get a day off. (Not quite true but you know what I mean!)

About his ideal match

I don't think I have an 'ideal match' in mind. I suppose she would have an optimistic, easy-going outlook on life, be intelligent with a generosity of spirit. We would probably share some of the same interests and would encourage and support each other in our own particular hobbies. Most importantly, she would have a warm heart, sense of humour and a warm smile!
