In His Own Words

About him

Hello! I moved to the U.K. from South Africa in 2015 and relocated to South Manchester.
UPDATE: Post-Covid (had it 10 months ago) I have used the past 10 months to re-evaluate my life and have found a wonderful opportunity offshore - I am now relocating to beautiful Bermuda in the next 2 months!

I’m a barrister practising Commercial and Insolvency Law but I’m really passionate about music, especially classical, choral and opera. I play the piano & enjoy discovering new musical experiences. I love musical theatre, especially Sondheim. A huge fan of Hamilton!

I enjoy experiencing different cultures and languages and have dabbled in learning bits and pieces of several languages (can easily get by in France, Germany and Holland so far!)

I love travelling when time allows- recent highlights: a secluded villa on a private cove on a Greek island and a transatlantic crossing on the Queen Mary 2. City breaks in Prague and Dublin.
I have 3 grown children living overseas whom I adore. I enjoy fine single malts and can't wait to get back to Scotland for another distillery tour!
I will soon be living in a sub-tropical paradise -wonder if I will miss the rain-sodden North West?

Those close to me describe me as warm, affectionate and engaging. I love meeting people and don't often feel uncomfortable around strangers. I’m known for making people laugh out loud and do not take myself too seriously at all (despite this very straight-laced bio)! I love Monty Python-type humour, Seinfeld, Larry David.

I've been divorced for 3 years, and no pets of my own, although I love animals (crazy cat /dog person) and have done my fair share of animal rescue and volunteering over the years.

I enjoy walking, hiking and regularly practice Iyengar yoga. I hit the streets to run now and again and enter charity 10K runs.

I realise that relocating away from the UK isn't exactly the best way to meet someone special but -one never knows -and I am still hopeful and optimistic that she is out there somewhere!

About his ideal match

I’ve been single for three ears now and this time has been very healing and valuable to my growth.
I’d like to meet (even if only online -at a distance) a companion and kindred spirit. I'm going to be living in Bermuda for the foreseeable future with no plans to return to the UK -so, if things were to develop, there would certainly have to be a willingness and ability to relocate.
If you can sing or play an instrument that’s an added bonus. I have played piano and keyboards for many years and also had years of vocal training. I have sung in choirs all my life and enjoy a good challenge, so you can see how important music is to me.
Apart from still being pro-EU, anti-Trump, I’m not really very politically inclined.
For me, laughter is a key ingredient of any chemistry in a relationship as well as being able to really enjoy the same experiences in life.
If any of this resonates with you, why not say hello? You never know what might happen, when you least expect it!
