In His Own Words

About him

[My apologies to those of you who have contacted me recently. I have been in the process of moving to Geneva and have only now completed that move.]

I'm not sure anyone 'should' get to know me. I'm not to everyone's taste.

I am serious about life but laugh a lot. I'm very bright but intolerant of conventional academic settings so all of my learning has been auto-didactic and experiential in nature. This has freed me to be quite successful in several careers across two nations. However, like the proverbial rolling stone I have gathered no moss: just a deep well of experience on which I reflect so as to learn from it.

I am committed to keeping myself fit. I have a personal trainer with whom I work on functional strength (rather than body-building) and I run a lot. I like to run uphill but I'm losing the ability because of the lack of hills round here. Similarly, I used to row and it is still my passion but I don't have the opportunity round here. I would start again in an instant if I were near the right kind of water.

I am learning French and have recently moved to Geneva, Switzerland. A new language opens many doors to new discoveries.

I'd like to learn to play piano or guitar but this is a bit hit-and-miss because my work - that I plan to continue until forced to stop - is very time-consuming.

Some people find me disturbing because I'm very much a change agent. If maintaining the status quo is your sine qua non then I wouldn't suit you. It's not that I seek out opportunities to be disruptive, it's just that I tend to ask the questions that others tiptoe around. Occasionally I do it consciously, to challenge, but mostly it's in a spirit of innocence, just like the small boy who saw through the emperor's new clothes.

Innocent or not, this characteristic has sometimes attracted some hostility!

Anyway, by hook or crook I plan to make it to 100 or, better, 105. So you can figure on a long acquaintance if we should happen to hit it off. Thanks for lending me your eyes.

About his ideal match

You are intelligent, open-minded, intense in your passions and ready to laugh at yourself long before you laugh at anyone else.

You think globally: all issues for you are global issues even if you are acting at a very local level.

You are tolerant as in accepting of human inconsistency but still able to feel angry in the face of the misuse of power so common in the human world.

You like to be clean and well-presented. You prefer to take good care of yourself even if you don't always attain your own preferred high standard.

You're tolerant of slightly eccentric Piscean gents of high experience, low conformity, a commitment to integrity (not always sustained due to human vulnerability) and conscientiousness. You can be steady and accommodating or wild and woolly and accommodating but you'll have spotted the key word here.

You're probably quite creative when it comes to things to do - activities, outings, adventures to the opera, the jazz club, the whatever - because I tend to get so caught up with what I'm doing that I don't think about them until it's too late. I will be very grateful for your efforts of discovery, however, and will follow you enthusiastically as I hold open the door of the latest restaurant.

Perhaps, like me, you'll know, deep in your soul, that life is deadly serious but not to be taken seriously. You'll make the most of it in whatever way makes sense to you.

It's your underlying value system, rather than any specific external factors, that will determine our compatibility.
