In His Own Words

About him

I know you have to kiss a lot of frogs, but I’d like to think that there is more to me than a slimy green skin and an ability to pluck a passing dragonfly out of the air with a flick of the tongue, impressive (and no doubt useful in so many unexpected ways) as that may be.
I’m different – not your regular vanilla male. Intelligent, articulate, calm, warm, open, thoughtful, kind, a good listener, always curious, and excellent company. Years of personal development work have removed most of the bugs, so now ready for beta testing. What more could you ask for (in a frog, at least)? The thinking woman's amphibian, then.
I'm retired, an ex-charity CEO who loves travel, walking, bridge, NT properties, cooking with wine (possibly some in the food), reading, current affairs, personal growth work, football, canals & narrowboats, history...and more. I'm an avid traveller (57 countries so far), and love the idea of planning together for faraway trips and for winter in warmer climes. I prefer countryside to city, and intimate gatherings to large parties. I should just tell you (in case I'm giving the wrong impression) that I'm not a Michelin Star / Rolex sort of person - for me, life's real joys are found in simpler things. I'm not especially looking to live with someone, though that's a possibility. On the other hand, it may be that having our own space and time is a good solution. At this stage of life, we get to choose!
My photos are all within last 18 months (bar one - you'll spot it!), with most from this summer. Yes, this is what you will see if we meet! The Komodo Dragon, you'll be pleased to know, was alive and well if, thankfully, a little sluggish. I know it looks as if I'd just shot him (or her - dragon sexing is outside my otherwise extensive skill set!), but I no longer slay dragons - even smallish ones. Anyway, I'm sure they taste terrible.
I should just add that I'm an ardent Remainer - I think it unlikely that I would have shared values with someone who thought Brexit was a great idea.

About his ideal match

I am seeking a best friend, a passionate lover, an intellectual companion, a fellow traveller, and ... here's the catch ... all in one person. Yes, just one - I'm genuinely looking for a committed relationship. Clearly this is going to be an exceptional person, but I'm hoping you may be able to help me out here! A strong relationship needs a fair degree of emotional intelligence on both sides, and whilst I'm not anticipating that you will be hovering 3 cm off the ground in Buddhist-style enlightenment, it would be wonderful if you have done a fair bit of work on yourself and are comfortable with who you are. It would also be great if you are well-educated with a nice voice (voices are so important, aren't they?). And if you are independent, tactile, thoughtful and kind - all such vital qualities - then we may really be cooking on gas. Do you enjoy laughing? Love travel and the countryside? Do you have the time, inclination and resources to share adventures? Then maybe we can set out on the journey together, sharing thoughts and feelings, offering mutual support when needed, helping each other grow, and exploring the world. How wonderful would it be to plan together for those adventures! Photos, I'm afraid, are an essential, and recent ones please. Forgive me, but in this I fear I can be just as shallow as the next person!
