In His Own Words

About him

This could be embarrassing (although not as embarrassing as the hurried selfie I had to take for my main photo).
I'm fairly sure I'm considered to be honest, safe, reliable, kind and thoughtful by those who know me best. I consider myself to be reasonably bright, well-educated, socially adept and with a good sense of humour if somewhat cynical and stoical at times. I like good food, single malt whiskies, a wide range of music (even Wagner), decent wines and, of course, dogs - Airedale terriers in particular. I love reading, drawing and writing (I exhibit and have been published), gardening and travel (Venice is my favourite city - I've studied there and visit frequently. New York and Cape Cod are my favourite parts of the USA and I like Scandinavia and Andalusia too). Overall, I think I'm pretty much a safe, although far from dull, bet.

About his ideal match

What qualities? Where to start? Well, first and foremost a sense of humour and a tolerance (preferably a love) of animals. Physical appearance is less important to me than an inquisitive and intelligent character; someone kind and empathetic of course with an open mind but who has principles and is not afraid to defend them intellectually.
Someone who shares an interest in music, art and literature would be ideal. Somebody who likes to relax and talk over a good meal and visit places of mutual interest but who is not afraid to be slightly adventurous.
A deal breaker? I've always been a sucker for shoulder-length hair with a fringe (but that's not really important as it's a throwback to when I was about 18 and in love, from afar, with Francoise Hardy, the French singer).
