In His Own Words

About him

I guess I have a wider range of interests, and a slightly different view of life, than most - well, that's what my friends have actually told me! (they're very polite). But time is precious, and, now retired, I'm getting on with doing all those things there wasn't time for before. Just now, I'm moving myself back into my house from the narrowboat on which I've been living for the last three years. In the right weather, I like to get outdoors, explore new places, or re-visit familiar ones. Longer-term, I'm still up for that country cottage, be it in this country or somewhere warmer, as my house here only has a paved backyard, and I'd like a garden again, some cleaner country air, and maybe more trees and less concrete. I like sauntering along country footpaths, or around foreign cities, and in any spare time - I suppose it's all spare, really, though it never feels that way - I fit in sessions at the gym (absolutely no lycra, I swear), read books, listen to music, and pander to my cats' commands. Likes (in no particular order) include owls, the Languedoc, TMS, cryptic crosswords, bluegrass, Marmite, the Discworld, the Grateful Dead, and loose leaf tea; I'll add to this list as more things occur 😊 And I've lately started out with the local Ceroc (jive) group.

About his ideal match

Ideal match? will share a liking for good music (I mean, played reasonably competently, with feeling and swing), an active but laid-back lifestyle, and living lightly on the planet. And that essential chemistry ...
