In His Own Words

About him

This is tough. I've chosen photos (July 2017 - Sept 2018) to reflect my style, activities and holidays. The first 2 gallery photos are from a sun holiday in Crete in August 2018 - warm & relaxing for a change. I enjoy walking at home and abroad, so many photos are from 'singles' walking holidays in Italy and Bulgaria. Although I'm not actually walking in them, we did stop for lunch and drinks, which is the whole point of climbing mountains. 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. My next holiday (Oct 2018) is walking in Croatia - not more mountains!

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, Trixie, (I miss her badly) and a friend's cockapoo, Bob, 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 a quiet, but sociable man, and need to get out of the house. I enjoy music, dancing, ballet, dining out, concerts and shopping, but again these are not fun alone. I would like to see much more of the UK and the world, but preferably 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 in life. I also have an eclectic taste in music thanks to Spotify downloads, and read ‘Scandi Noir’ and non fiction, recently Sapiens & Homo Deus by Harari Yuval. More details if we meet up.

About his ideal match

This is even tougher - best not be too prescriptive. I prefer the old fashioned way of meeting on a dance floor, even though my moves are best described as ‘freeform’ (60’s style). Words and photos in a’profile’ 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 moderate drinker who eats healthily. A compassionate, sociable woman with a young attitude, a sense of fun and humour, and a positive outlook on the future. 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 at New Year. I don't need a cook or a housekeeper, but someone who can teach me how to make my garden more maintenance free would be a bonus.

What more can I say? This sounds like a tall order - no one is perfect, least of all me. 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, perhaps for a walk or lunch. We have nothing to lose but loneliness, but could find happiness again.
