In His Own Words

About him

Ok, so cards on the table:

First, I'm not grumpy, just not photogenic! Which is a bummer when you have to present a photo of yourself as the primary means of introduction. Never mind... Hopefully, you'll like what you read here, otherwise I'm stuffed!

Paris born but resident in the UK for 20+ years, so probably semi-civilised by now. Mind you, even after all this time, I'm still not able to drink English wine!

Speak French, Spanish and English. No Inspecteur Clouseau accent I'm afraid, but can turn it on if you insist.

Good upbringing, well-spoken & postgraduate degrees in both Fr & Uk unis. Yes, I know which knife/fork/spoon to use at the banquet table! I try to do everything with style, from the way I treat people to how I dress.

Own cottage in Brittany with sea view to die for. My own corner of paradise (pics). My long term plan for retirement, sipping a kir, content, enjoying living on the coast with someone I love.

Excellent cook and wine connaisseur. I will definitely take you for a long romantic walk... down the wine aisle!

Can play a decent Elton John on the piano (without the glasses and feathers though).

Love rugby. Can sail (was an RYA instructor) and ski (black runs, no sweat).

Love biking (grey or red) on a sunny day, but not into biker culture nor gatherings.

After 20+ years as a university lecturer in Leicester and Paris, and freelance translator, I am changing my life around, having just qualifed as a teacher by doing a PGCE/QTS, with a view to becoming a head teacher as the long term plan. It was actually much harder than I thought!

I call a spade a spade. It may well land me into trouble but I like frankness & clarity. Can't stand two-faced people.

Apart from that, I value wit, laughter, honesty, substance, kindness and just a tiny bit of madness.

You should message me if you want to meet someone with a big heart, a smart intellect and that French 'je ne sais quoi'.

On a final note: I'm faster around the Top Gear track than Tom Cruise (pic). How's that for bragging rights? ;)

About his ideal match

Attracted to smart and stylish women who are independent and not afraid of speaking their mind.

Bonus if you can speak a bit of French, it makes socialising in France that bit easier. Not a deal-breaker if you don't though. And if you can speak Italian, I'm yours already ;)

I don't have any eyes/body/hair/height type and your social background, occupation and wealth do not matter to me. So long as I like who you are as a person, there is mutual attraction, and we enjoy each other's company, it's all good as far as I'm concerned.

Caveat: If you don't have at least one public photo of you, then please don't message me. I can understand your reasons not to show yourself until you have exchanged some info to see if you click with someone personality-wise, but to me it just lacks openness.

Caveat 2: I have no interest in establishing a text-only romance with someone living abroad.

Voltaire once said that love is a canvas woven by nature and embroidered by imagination. My ideal partner will understand this perfectly!
