In His Own Words

About him

Hi there!

Well I'd like to think that I'm a thoroughly decent, kind and honest sort of chap. I like cultural activities such as watching classical music concerts or going to galleries, museums, the opera, the theatre, historical properties and so on. I play the violin in a couple of amateur orchestras as well as enjoying playing or watching folk music (I especially love acid croft and ceilidhs). I am trying to teach myself the piano again. It will come as no surprise that I'm somewhat bookish.

I'm also very much a outdoors person. I love gardening and growing my own fruits and vegetables and I used to have an allotment. I also love hiking, skiing and bird/nature watching. I have mostly lived in Scotland and Yorkshire so I have got to do lots of hillwalking including winter mountaineering with an ice axe and crampons and climbing over 80 Munros.

I have been vegetarian since I was 16 (sometimes vegan) and am environmentally conscious although I could always do more. I have a PhD in molecular biology and after a long spell working in the civil service (Defra), I now work in scientific consultancy. I come fully house trained, am a good cook and enjoy DIY.

Here are some other keywords that might give you some idea about me and my interests: Archaeology, astronomy, atheism (Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens etc.), badminton, Bake Off, baking (especially bread), bat detecting, cats, cinema, dinner parties, dystopian fiction, evolution, Family Guy, Father Ted, Formula 1, fossils, geology, gin, HiFi, home cinema, Infinite Monkey Cage, jigsaw puzzles, News Quiz, Philip Glass, philosophy, Private Eye, prog rock, psychology, Queen, Radio 4 comedies, real ale, seaside, single malt whisky, Six Nations, steam trains, synth-pop, Test Match Special, tropical fish keeping, wild flowers & woodworking.

About his ideal match

I'm looking for a non-smoking, Radio 4-loving, honest and kind woman; ideally vegetarian/vegan. Someone who would get as excited as me about nurturing plants in the garden, going wildlife watching, hiking up a hill, going ceilidh dancing or watching a classical music concert. I'm always happy to be introduced to new hobbies too of course. I abhor horse racing, fishing and any other "sports" that involve hurting animals, hopefully you do too.

I'm quite a romantic person too so I like nothing more than snuggling on the sofa, spooning, giving flowers, giving and receiving back rubs or sharing a candle-lit bubble bath. So I'm looking for someone who'd appreciate that.

My dream is to have a small holding/eco grand design somewhere in the Yorkshire Dales or in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, especially in my favourite place, the Shetland Islands. Hopefully there is someone out there to share this with? I should add that I have full time homeworking available with my current job so in any case I'm potentially quite flexible on location and would be happy to share in your dreams too.
