In His Own Words

About him

This is tough. I don't know who you are or what you are looking for. I feel like a dog in a rescue centre: "please choose me".

I've chosen a few photos (July 2017 - March 2018) to reflect my style, activities and holidays. I enjoy walking at home and abroad, so some photos are from a 'singles' holiday around Lake Garda. Although I'm not actually walking in them, we did stop for lunch and drinks, which is the whole point of climbing hills and getting tired and thirsty. The bike shot is admittedly of my back - arguably not my best side. I hadn't been on a bike for 30 years, it was 30C, and we cycled 28 kms on the last day after a week of long walks. The ice cream afterwards was wonderful. Why do I have to suffer for my satisfactions? I also skied for 30 years, but getting up became harder than falling over.

At home, I walk as much as possible to keep fit, either locally, or in our wonderful northern countryside and coast, with the Ramblers or friends. The dog photos are of my last dog (I miss her badly) and a friend's cockapoo, who I walk weekly. He runs for miles and likes muddy puddles, before getting free sausage treats from a cafe. I get almost as muddy, and have to pay for my lunch, but I love that carefree day of play.

I'm sociable and like to be among, or chatting to, people - so I go out each day. I have a lovely home and garden, but it's no fun being alone in them, so I often take a book to a local cafe for lunch. I enjoy music, dancing, ballet, dining out, concerts and shopping, but again these are more fun with a friend. I would like to see much more of the UK, especially NW Scotland, and return to the Orkneys, and to see more of the world. Again, this is best with a special friend - to walk, dine, and laugh together, and share memories. Travelling is enjoyable, but my contentment does not depend on that. Love and friendship are more important than anything else.

About his ideal match

This is even tougher. Words and photos cannot define chemistry and friendship. Our interests may not be identical, but I would like an active woman, both physically and mentally, who can also relax and be calm. A compassionate, sociable woman with a young attitude, a sense of fun and humour, and a positive outlook.

Someone who is comfortable in her own skin and who enjoys a night out for a meal, dance or concert, or a 'black tie' ball. I don't need a cook or a housekeeper, but someone who can teach me how to take care of my garden would be a bonus.

What more can I say? This sounds like a tall order. No one is perfect. I'll know you when I see you, hear your voice, and talk to you. With a bit of luck, we'll want to meet again in more relaxing circumstances.
