In His Own Words

About him

Why should people get to know me? Erm... history would teach me that it may well seem debatable as to whether it’s worth the effort or not; however, if you like a challenge... what friends and colleagues say about me...
knowledgeable, annoying, talented, irritating, usually well-turned-out, inveterate smart-arse, well-intentioned, multi-faceted(as in jack-of-all-trades rather than two-faced!), unusual, occasionally slightly amusing, essentially empathetic and altruistic, hard work, kind, difficult to fathom.
When younger, clearly an INFJ, slipping into borderline INFP in middle age! (If you read up on INFJs, that’ll explain some of the less desirable traits above, somewhat.) I have found it very hard to let people in.
Music is very important to me, I am interested in art & design, architecture, history, reading -historical novels, biographies and poetry in the main, being in the landscape, sport etc.
Some indicative cultural binary prefs...
Spring over Summer
Earl Grey over Caffè Americano
Blüthner over Yamaha
Sassoon over Graves
Larkspur over Lack
Old English over Kings
Gothic over Neo-classical
Seventies over Nineties
Brogues & jeans over trainers & trackies
Typography over tattoos
“Look into my face; my name is Might-have-been. I am also call’d No-more, Too-late, Farewell...” DGR from his sonnet, A Superscription...
Yes, well, I have spent most of my life (14+ but not diagnosed til I was 40!) in a recurring battle against depression, on a roughly three year cycle, which makes all this difficult, which has made life difficult, nevertheless, I have still achieved much. I have made big strides with some therapy over the last two years. I am not on medication or in therapy at present and things are better but I am not the finished article (is anyone?).
Btw
(Goatee at present after a Movember Mo, but fluctuate from nothing to beard just for a change, every now and then...in case it’s important or off-putting to you! (Ha, like facial hair is going to be the issue after all that!!))

About his ideal match

Oh I don’t know, most people who have been interesting to me have tended to run several miles in the opposite direction and most of those who’ve expressed an interest in me have seldom fit the bill or have done so at an inaccessible time...
Intelligent
Thoughtful
Compassionate
Probably left-leaning with some small c English conservatism about their values.
Wide range of interests: musical, sporty, artistic, creative (without being some mad hippy...)
Probably a graduate professional or similar.
Open-minded, but opinionated.
Abreast of current affairs, taking a view.
Interesting in your own right and interested in all things, always wanting to know and do more.
Not an atheist, open to some form of spiritual aspect to life, ideally Christian.
Familiar with a wider range of cutlery than merely a fork! (Ah, yes, that was a very short dinner date!)
