In His Own Words

About him

I initially came into this blind, looking only for a new life-long partner. But it would also be great to meet someone who is on my wavelength for dining out, theatre trips, day trips out, and perhaps even holidays - I love to travel, but it doesn't appeal in the same way when you're solo.

I consider myself sociable, accepting, and caring, with a generally positive but practical outlook. I try to take each day as it comes and make the most of it, even if that means being positively quiet and still - I'm currently sitting in the garden enjoying some of the early spring sunshine and watching the birds.

I do not play sport, but to do enjoy walking and cycling, although the walking has gone slightly downhill, if you'll pardon the pun, since I lost my dogs. Perhaps you want to be a walking partner? I also enjoy entertaining (hosting dinner parties & BBQs, not clowning!), being with friends, travelling and days out, music (very eclectic - classical, jazz, rock, blues), having cut flowers in the house (especially if they're from the garden), and being able to help others. And most important of all - just having some fun!

My interests include gardening, photography, woodturning (which I sell, and which is the reason for my username!), and cooking. The last is possibly because I also enjoy eating, especially with a glass or two of good wine! I consider that I eat healthily, but that doesn't mean low-fats or low-carbs. It simply means wholesome and well balanced. I have recently taken up singing (I don't sing well, but it's fun, so community chorus rather than serious choir). I'm also tempted to take up watercolours again, but we'll see...

I am a very practical person when it comes to home maintenance, and prefer to repair rather than replace.

Looking outwards, I help with the running of a foodbank for my church, and with the running of a local weekly lunch club for the 'oldies' - I'm not there myself yet, in mind or body! I'm also around for those that need to chat things through, or a shoulder to lean on.

About his ideal match

This is less critical if it's only for an activity partner, but the special partner in my life must be a Christian and a non-smoker. Faith is central to my life - it dictates who I am, how I behave or react, and how I relate to others - and any future soulmate will also need to have a faith so that we can mutually support each other on our Christian journeys. I am open about my faith, but don't flaunt it - I'm not a Bible-Basher! Any partner would need to be similarly open, so if you're an 'ask me later', we won't match.

Otherwise, I am very flexible so take all that follows with a good pinch of salt.

Ideally, she would...
Share some of my intersets
Be reasonably active - but not necessarily sporty.
Have a love of nature and the great outdoors.
Have a desire to travel - I'm comfortable, but can't afford world cruises every year!
Be sociable, and enjoy entertaining.
Enjoy conversing, but also happy just to sit and be.
Be accepting of others' foibles - not that I have any, of course!
Enjoy simply spending an evening in, with music, nice wine, cudlles and candles - yes I'm a romantic, too.
Enjoy good food - even if I've cooked it.
Be happy with spontaneity - I'm normally cool and level-headed, but sometimes the impetuous side takes over!

Am I describing you? If you think I may be, then shall we chat further?
