In His Own Words

About him

I'm friendly, helpful, and easy-going. I like intelligent conversation, especially if it's well-informed and light-hearted - and if no-one else will do the jokes then, well, I'm not often at a loss (unfortunately!).

Becoming a widower at the point of taking early retirement (ex- public sector / research) meant shelving the move to the South of France, so (plan B) I bought a narrowboat, let my house to friends, and moved aboard: at least that's something ticked on my bucket list. And I've discovered an intriguing waterworld of new things to do, people to meet, and nature to watch, all that stuff. I've a countrywide network of waterways to explore, a comfy mooring in a cosy little marina for the colder months, and a growing set of canalfolk acquaintances who press-gang me into joining task-parties (we pick sackfuls of litter from the towpath, haul out the supermarket trolleys, paint lock gates), or going to the pub.

I like the outdoors, sauntering along countryside footpaths, or around a new town in search of a coffeeshop, in the UK or abroad. I read a lot of books, and listen to a lot of radio, I'm addicted to TMS whenever there's a test match but I'm happy to use headphones! Just pass me the odd cup of tea, please ..
I like tackling cryptic crosswords, and I use the gym and pool at the local sports centre most days (when I'm here). Music is very important to me, and a good night out for me is a concert, or a live band in a friendly pub.

About his ideal match

Ideal match? will be warm-hearted (of course), have a positive outlook on life, and be looking for some adventure and travel (and I don't mean only by boat!). Comfortable in casual clothes (what a brilliant chat-up line! - I can scrub up too, if I absolutely must), and like the outdoors. And be looking to make some new memories! Anything's possible, if the chemistry works ...
