In His Own Words

About him

I think I am a pretty decent and honest chap. I'm a scientist by profession and I work in scientific consultancy although for most of my career I have worked in the civil service or was doing academic research.

I've been vegetarian since I was 16, sometimes dabbled in veganism and I generally try to live gently on the environment. I love gardening and growing and cooking my own fruits and vegetables (I had an allotment for many years) and I also like wild flowers. I've got an artistic side and I play the violin to a good standard, performing in several concerts per year in local amateur orchestras. From this I like watching classical concerts, theatre productions, going to galleries, museums, the opera and so on. I love being outdoors and hiking (especially up hills and mountains when I lived in Scotland and Yorkshire). I'm somewhat lacking in motivation now that I'm living in the flat south east though so someone to run away to the hills with to increase our Munro or Wainwright counts or to go for a spot of skiing with would be great.

Other random things I count as likes or hobbies include: Astronomy, bat detecting, bird watching, home cinema, Formula 1, public science lectures, (Scottish) folk music gigs, 80s synthpop, Test Match Special, Six Nations, baking bread, real ale, fossil hunting, teaching myself piano, radio 4, Classic FM, ceilidh dancing and single malt whisky (especially before attempting the ceilidh dancing!). I like books and must make more time to read them. Especially evidently the psychobabble ones on how to succeed at dating!

About his ideal match

I'm just looking for a decent, kind and honest woman really. Definitely non-smoking, ideally vegetarian/vegan and ideally sharing at least some of my interests. Someone who would get as equally as excited as me at nurturing a plant in the garden, going up a hill or watching a classical concert for instance. I'm always happy to be introduced to new hobbies too of course.

I have all of Dawkins' books so we probably wouldn't get along if you are particularly religious (or if you don't know how to use an apostrophe properly). I abhor horse racing, fishing and any other "sports" that involve hurting animals, hopefully you feel the same.

My dream is to have a small holding/eco grand design in the Scottish Highlands and Islands, especially in my favourite place, the Shetlands. Perhaps there is someone out there to share this with?

I have home working available to me as an option so I am potentially flexible on location.
