In His Own Words

About him

I am a curious fellow, who regards each day as an opportunity to learn something about something. My daughters will have strong views on how good I am putting that learning into practice. Probably good with things they might say, less good with teenagers 😕.
I am mostly retired now from a career in engineering. I do a bit of consultancy from time to time, and work as part of a great team running a GT car racing championship (not quite F1 but plenty of fun) which takes me away to UK circuits half a dozen weekends in the season.
I enjoy cooking for friends, sometimes a bit seriously; I really enjoy the local countryside, looking out for the wildlife and doing a bit of rough shooting for the pot. Quiet days are spent on some house/furniture project or other in the workshop. I can make things OK, but really cannot design my way out of a paper bag,
I have travelled quite widely for both work and leisure, with the experiences to match from the northen lights at -30C in Finland to dugout canoe building in Zanzibar. I speak a bit of French after a day or two there.
I am very amicably separated, living in a quirky upside down old Cotswold mill by a stream, and occasionally I am awarded custody of the family dog, who is really rather fun, nowadays a little less prone to stealing pizza.

Above everything, though, I am trying to do my bit in bringing up two teenage daughters. Helping my eldest learn to drive is proving more of a bundle of laughs than I had expected.

If you have persevered this far and look pretty in pearls, (what girl doesn’t) do drop me a line.

About his ideal match

I am looking for a clever classy country girl at home in tweed and pearls who likes the Cotswolds, old houses and good food. I am looking for a serious relationship with a witty, self-reliant girl based on friendship, respect, loyalty and good manners and just that chemistry thing.
