In His Own Words

About him

I'm a kind, warm, sensual, tactile, intelligent, aesthetic guy with a zany soh and eclectic tastes. I settled in the UK having spent my earlier years overseas. And no, I won't ever get used to the British climate! I have three elements to my personality: the artist, the philosopher-scientist and the engineer. I’m charmingly complex and enigmatic, but not uncrackable to she who holds the key to my Secret Garden [I know you’re out there somewhere]!
I honour humanistic values - honesty, loyalty, kindness, humility and mutual respect. I love stimulating conversation/debate on any topic. And the arts: this expression of the human soul holds, for me, a timeless mysticism. Everything in this world fascinates me. I'm deep, sensitive and impossibly romantic. Bohemian and unconventional in taste/style, I follow my own star and dance to my own inner tune. I enjoy a wide range of music – which is central to my being, as well as the visual and performing arts. I sing bass in two choirs, play rubbish on guitar, violin and mbira.
I express my creativity through my work as a Chartered Engineer. Mechanically-minded, I love creating/altering anything that moves. Engineers are creative problem-solvers; and using my talents/skills for the betterment of others/environment has always been a prime motivator for me.
I care about my appearance/physique and work out, cycle, swim, play badminton and tennis regularly. I've enjoyed salsa dancing, and would be keen to learn Bachata. When the weather is fair, I love to be out on my bike or sharing a country walk. If it's inclement, a cosy nook by the fire in a country pub is my ideal. Me-time is likely to be spent in my workshop, or progressing various projects on the house or garden, although I would gladly share the latter two!
I love animals. As a child, besides dogs, I kept various exotic tropical animals. Unfortunately, I’m allergic to cats; but it’s not their fault, poor darlings.
To the right woman [if/when I find her] I will give my undying devotion.
Please, ladies: upload a photo :)

About his ideal match

A woman warm, loving, affectionate and tactile, with a disarming smile and full of laughter. Being comfortable with her sexuality/sensuality, she'll possess emotional intelligence and communicability, able to show her feelings and speak her mind. Sharp of wit, unfazed by intellect and capable of sustaining an intellectual argument. Well educated, read and travelled, articulate and able to express herself confidently in spoken and written word. My Unabridged Oxford dictionary+, whilst playfully teasing and being teased; not taking me too seriously (I can and I mustn't). All these sapio-sexual traits are huge turn-ons for me.
I am looking for a LTR; but have no preconceptions.
These are obviously ideals, and a match is also about compromise and acceptance of each other and our limitations as well as strengths. It’s pointless being prescriptive here, as chemistry is king, and it's undefinable.
