In His Own Words

About him

I have a job which sends me off to (sometimes) exciting places in the world, sadly to work but I try to make the best of it. So far in 2016 I've been to Boston, Lisbon and Dublin (twice)......Thankfully I love travelling, but one day will do it for me and with someone special.

I have three v supportive adult children, variously spread between living (fairly independently) with me at home, at Uni, and on the south coast.

I like to think I am quite easy, tolerant and flexible, and upbeat whatever life throws at me, and young in spirit (I certainly don't feel 55!); liking the good things in life (nice restaurants, comfy hotels, and being near to the pointy end of the plane if I can), but also like simple things (like cheesy chips on the beach, street food in foreign places, and cheap train journeys in unusual places!). And I am more than happy kicking stones on the beach, or going for a walk in the hills one day, and then doing something more highbrow or upmarket another. Or having the occasional quiet day at home or in the garden.

I admit I work too hard, but am increasingly ready and happy to be distracted, whether it be for travelling abroad or in the UK, doing interesting stuff in London, or just having deep and meaningful conversations with someone nice.

Just need to find a distractress...... someone to do these things with. Someone to share my life with, to see their smile, to cuddle, to kiss, and maybe wake up with, and generally hang around with..... to make happy, and to be made happy by, and to share special times.

Oh, and I'm actually quite fun, can be quite silly if required, very loyal, relatively practical and occasionally romantic (!).

I exercise in the gym, would like to get back to cycling, like walking, swimming outside in the summer, quite enjoy table tennis, but otherwise not sporty, and don't watch sport (going to Wimbledon is different!), but fine if you do.

I am vegetarian, but I'm not going to try to convert anyone, as long as you don't try to convert me!

About his ideal match

My ideal match would be someone who is fairly independent,"low maintenance, tolerant, loves life to the full, and wants to go out and do things (as well as stay in and do things)..... someone who I can love and fall in love, who can love me and fall in love with.... and who is young in mind, positive and open minded.

Someone who can cope with my work life (away some 3-4 nights maybe every other week, occasionally longer), and is ok with me spending time with my (adult) kids. Someone who will value our time together, and want to make the most of it, but who acknowledges the real world and isn't expecting to be together 24x7 just yet. Quite possibly someone with similar constraints... with an existing life....

Someone who likes exploring and travelling, whether that be London, the South Downs, the Highlands of Scotland, or some exciting place abroad.... Who fancies maybe a trip to a sculpture park, art gallery, museum, or a concert (classical, jazz or something light) or some stand-up comedy, or something funny at the theatre... and with a nice meal thrown in..... but who is also content with a quiet day in the garden, or a quiet night in front of the fire with a nice bottle of wine.

Someone who is happy having a intelligent conversation on current affairs over dinner, but is equally happy playing word games in bed on a Saturday morning, listening to a Radio 4 comedy, or generally just chilling.

And someone who is happy with themselves and where they are in life, and whose inevitable baggage is at least vaguely under control..... .someone who is - and still feels - sexy....

Damn, am I being too fussy?!
