In His Own Words

About him

Would love some female company. Initially, text contact would be helpful and a first step to help me re-engage with "a lost social world". I like local history, visiting interesting sites ....in the past have enjoyed several cruises as I love being on the water and visiting new destinations. I enjoy being on the local speakers' circuit giving illustrated talks around the Westcountry. Used to dance ...now trying dancing lessons again.

Love Classic FM, theatre, jazz, opera .... not wildly into "pop".

I enjoy meals out and pub lunches and would enjoy working in tandem for a lovely meal in ...with a nice wine. Have attended 3 local cookery one-day courses.

I am a retired FE College lecturer..... had a textbook published decades ago .... and still like creating booklets and visual presentations.

In the past I wrote:
Feeling very apprehensive about online dating. Needing to get my head around how it works.... before going too far. Don't want to make a mistake. Some sets of photos are confusing as some sets of photos seem to show different ladies! Others seem too far away to travel to meet easily.... so keen to link-up with someone reasonably local.

PS Sorry about the photos ... I am not very photogenic and nit used to having my photo taken... I take photos of lots of people and views etc but don't go in for taking my on own photos!

About his ideal match

Friendship!
I would love to meet someone who loved walking, [tennis - currently off the agenda as I have an injury] or perhaps days out "exploring" the countryside, NT properties etc. Enjoyed several cruises a while ago - so would like to meet some who also liked cruising!!.

Ideally, my ideal match should have some interest in local history.
