In His Own Words

About him

Hello,

I am retired but living life to the full. What's age but a hypothetical number ! I believe in looking after my mind and body, I am a life long learner and believe in retaining a sense of curiosity about the world as well as making a positive contribution to it.

I am told I am younger than my years (not just by those paid to say it !) both in looks (I think) and in my physical and mental fitness.

I am a loyal and committed person and place warmth, honesty and kindness high on my list of attributes that I think I have and value in others. I am a positive and optimistic person and definitely subscribe to the glass half full view of life. I would describe my self as a determined and resilient person capable of dealing with what life throws at you.

I am active physically a lot of the time, but also value time to relax, just to be,watch the world go by, watch sunsets, wildlife and listen to good music.

I enjoy walking, including fell walking, cycling, tennis, yoga and gardening. I am passionate about the Lake District, but have a life long love of Scotland ,especially the islands, and more recently the Alps. Spain is a cultural and physical fascination. Gardening is a constant thread. I grow some of my own vegetables.

I am interested in any good music, though classical is my main choice, especially the classical guitar (which I play to a modest standard). Dowland, Bach, Beethoven and Sibelius do it for me. I am also interested in the arts, painting, theatre and good films.

Wildlife and especially birds have been a life long interest and I believe that putting something back into the natural world is a vital requirement through activities such as voluntary work.

All the above looks pretty serious, but I value laughter and have a pretty good sense of humour which doesn't take much to surface. A glass of wine normally does it ! I believe life should be taken seriously enough to get the maximum out of it, but not so seriously that it precludes laughter and enjoyment along the way.

About his ideal match

Warmth, compassion, kindness, sincerity and a generosity of spirit are high on my list of must haves. Someone with the same level of commitment is also important. Communication is vital; they must be a good listener (and a replier to messages).

I am looking for an equal relationship where the important and the trivial things are shared, as well as someone committed to the longer term.

A shared interest in the outdoors and perhaps wildlife is important and a reasonable level of physical fitness is a vital component of that. Ideally someone capable of roughing it from time to time (e.g. camping), but also someone who is happy to soak up the delights of a good hotel, along with good food and wine.

A sense of humour and an ability to tolerate a northern aspect to this would be useful. A lovely smile and gorgeous eyes would be a bonus, as would a lovely bum.

I am looking for friendship as well as love, someone who wouldn't object to being described as sensual. I am also looking for someone who can bring things to a relationship where we can learn from each other and perhaps grow into a better version of ourselves.

Despite all the above I am also looking for someone comfortable with silence and content to be with someone whilst not doing anything in particular.
