In His Own Words

About him

I know some lovely women but don't seem to have found the ideal person yet and probably never will - so happy just to be friends and enjoy life! Have many interests - music, choral singing, walking/outdoors, arts, photography and computing to name but a few. Listen to Radio 4, Radio 3, World Service and Classic FM mostly - not much of a TV watcher (but I like Newsnight and similar). I'm a gadget freak - love messing with technology. Live in pleasant rural area on the south/west Yorkshire border but within reach of many major towns/cities such as Sheffield, Huddersfield, Leeds,Wakefield and Barnsley. I'm still working on a self-employed basis and enjoy the work I do, so no plans to retire. Mostly interested in friendship and socialising as I love to meet and talk to new people. I'm very affable and easy-going but don't like piped music (especially if loud and ubiquitous) and don't like the way the English language is butchered and destroyed on a daily basis by the media - especially by people who ought to know better (e.g. BBC personnel - whatever happened to BBC English?). My wife died 6 years ago of cancer - very sad, but I've no hang-ups and feel very thankful and fortunate to have had over 40 years in a happy and fulfilling relationship. Nothing lasts for ever and life is to be enjoyed. It's important to move on!

About his ideal match

Intelligence is probably what I value most in a friend (male or female). Would like to meet someone who is also genuinely warm hearted, loving, affectionate, kind, considerate and understanding - looks not too crucial but not totally unimportant .I thoroughly enjoy the company of women and quite happy to enjoy a pleasant social relationship (at my/our age, with people round about dropping like flies, one can't have too many friends really)!
