In His Own Words

About him

I'm not an airforce pilot, Nobel prize winner nor professional athlete so please manage your expectations! Seriously I believe I'm a considerate individual with a lot of affection to give. I would class myself as having a strong minded personality with an independence of thought. I guess some people would find a few of my life choices unconventional.

I enjoy country walks and do at least one each weekend if I can with camera to hand. I'd do more but my boss prefers me to go to work. Quite keen on bird spotting and avian photography, hence the camera. Digital cameras have really revolutionised what amateurs can do. I don't mean spending all day in bird hide more observing nature. My dad used to quote the poem "What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare". Seems more relevant than "The boy stood on the burning deck".

I enjoy seeing films in the cinema, both mainstream and art house. Not fazed by subtitles. Fairly eclectic tastes from Lord of The Rings to Merchant Ivory productions to Hellboy but not too much gore etc. Maybe I get too involved in what I'm watching! Most romantic films to watch again are those such as The English Patient, Cinema Paradiso, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, The End of the Affair and La Reine Margot. For lighter fair Shakspeare In Love and Amelie!

I'm interested in science and technology as well as history especially ancient history with a particular interest in European mythology and folklore and Arthurian legends. So I enjoy visiting English Heritage sites and NT properties as well as museums and galleries.

Music can really influence mood. Some of the film music of Ennio Morricone is amazing and I'm also a huge fan of ELO.

I adore a good read. My general preference is for fantasy/sci-fi but I occasionally saunter into other genres.

I've enjoyed holidays in Europe since 1987 with Italy, Greece and Austria being past favourites and did some walking holidays in Switzerland recently. I even got to Aix-en-Provence in February 2020.

About his ideal match

I guess my ideal match would be kind hearted and caring with a keen sense of humour, not taking themselves too seriously; Happy to spend quality time together and accompany me on countryside walks, holidays In the UK and abroad and cinema outings; Patient enough to tolerate my faults; Articulate maybe with an interest in history and/or science and certainly sharing some interests in common. Someone who sees and brings out the best in me; Wise but willing to take a chance and possessing a smile that brightens the day. Obviously a fantastic cook with immense wealth wouldn't be objectionable.
