In His Own Words

About him

I’m an active, positively minded, man with a sense of humour that is sometimes self-deprecating and irreverent. I’m brave in some ways and willing to try new things, e.g. rock climbing and skiing in my youth, and more recently abseiling off the Tyne Bridge and ‘looping the loop’ in a glider (not as a pilot, thank goodness). I’ve always liked the city, with its amenities and ‘buzz’, and have lived in Newcastle since my student days. I was married for 37 years until my wife died when I was 60.

I’m a sociable ‘people person’. I like music and dancing (disco style) but would quite like to dance properly. I enjoy watching modern and classical ballet, dining out, concerts and shopping, but none of these are much fun alone. I’m not interested in football. I would like to see more of the UK and the rest of the world. Holidays are enjoyable, but love and friendship all year are more important.

I enjoy most types of music, especially blues and jazz these days, and thanks to Spotify I have an eclectic collection. I read most days - fiction and non-fiction - but don’t watch much TV except for BBC4 or a crime series, although I do enjoy Strictly and the new Dr Who to relax.

I’ve always enjoyed walking, and go out with two local groups and former professional colleagues (unless it’s really cold and damp). I stopped skiing about 9 years ago when I no longer ‘bounced’ as easily as I used to, but am grateful for those 30 years of adventure and fun.

I’m not a regular drinker (apart from holidays) and don’t enjoy noisy pubs. I eat most things, but try to keep to a balanced diet. Most of my recent holidays have been walking in northern Italy, Bulgaria, Croatia, and recently Madeira. I also had a ‘sun’ holiday in Crete last summer (2018).

I’ve chosen some recent photos (2017/18).The two dogs are my last dog - in my living room - and also a friend's cockapoo, who I walk for several miles weekly. That is that a carefree day of fun. I would like more fun and laughter in my life now and I’d like to share it with a close friend.

About his ideal match

A picture is worth a thousand words, so they say, but cannot capture personality, and we aren’t all photogenic. Physically and mentally active, with a modern style, positive outlook and a sense of humour. A confident, compassionate, sociable and socially aware woman - with a young attitude and sense of fun, but who can also relax and be calm. Our interests may not be identical, but should be compatible. A moderate drinker who eats healthily. I do not like snobs or narrow minded people.

Someone who is comfortable in her own skin and who enjoys a night out for a meal, dance, concert, a weekend away, a walk on the beach or a 'black tie' ball. 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.

I’d prefer to meet early rather than exchange messages for weeks. All photos are 2017 - 18.
