In His Own Words

About him

.
To some it may appear unusual for someone with a degree in a natural science to have a love of the arts generally and music in particular.

I retired a few years back from a demanding a management position heading up a specialist area of the laboratory supply industry for a major company.

My divorce is water under the bridge but the twinkle in my eye stays.

Why a love music? My parents weren't responsible. It all clicked when I was fifteen, on hearing something at school assembly .It prompted me to learn the cello with my parent's total support. That, combined with innate curiosity has meant I love music to this day. Duke Ellington to Edward Elgar, Oscar Peterson to Puccini or Django Reinhardt and Andean folk music. So much to listen to and learn about, so little time to do it!

I have other interests. A regular walker, usually with fifteen plus others. We see our fine country in detail ( badgers at eleven in the morning!) .It also keeps me at a good level of fitness.

I enjoy the arts generally particulary visiting places which inspired painters. City breaks yes but would not spend less that four days in a city. Again so much better with a companion. Which next ?..............Istanbul, Tashkent , Seville, Venice (again) or springtime Paris with music in the air, a hand held and good food.

Voluntary work is an aspect to my make up. For sixteen years I have been an active member of a local Rotary club where I have many good friends . In addition I befriend a man who is nearly blind through a local charity.

I am fortunate to have a close, fit family, two children and a delightful
granddaughter. I never thought being a grandparent would bring so much simple pleasure but she does and features a lot in my life and thoughts.

What I have written is largely spontaneous and from the heart. I am a kind,romantic man deep down.

About his ideal match

He describes his ideal match thus:
Where does one start? I say that because it is all about chemistry and that cannot be put into words but we both know if it there don't we!

You will have an active mind and a career background, possibly in teaching. Not necessarily in my own field in fact, ideally, not. A lady must be assured but not assurtive, natural without pretence, elegant with dress sense. You will talk and talk but never never bore. What you say will be flavoured with humour even flippancy and interjected with anecdotes and asides.

I seek a lady with parallel not identical interests. One who certainly has pursuits different to my own. Interests that I can possibly learn about and share. It might be wine tasting, creative cookery or bowls but not pilates or line dancing. Have those interests by all means but do not count me in. I can dance reasonably well mind you... just not in a line!

You will look after your body and be fit mentally and physically like me. For practical reasons living within a reasonable distance of Leicestershire must be a factor but not vital.

If you feel a lively mind was behind this narrative you are right .If you can see an interesting chap get in touch
