In His Own Words

About him

Nothing beats that feeling when two lives dovetail perfectly. I have contentment; a woman to love, and to be loved by, would add another dimension.

Although we don't need identical interests, if you love the countryside/coast or paintings/photography we already have a connection!

I like being out and about - walking in the hills, messing about at the coast, picnics - and visiting historic or cultural cities. I'm an enthusiastic photographer, gallery-goer and charity bookshop browser.

There are many places I'd like to see - Ireland and the Scottish islands, much of Europe, the remoter parts of the U.S.A.

There are other times I'd like to be doing nothing very much except sharing a closeness with someone who relishes being together for its own sake. I'm happy with my own company on occasion, too, especially if you have a burning ambition to dangle from a parachute or a bungee chord - I'll be full of admiration, but you'll be on your own!!

I'm not sure how relevant our specific tastes are but, for what it's worth, amongst my favourites are Picasso, Van Gogh, pre-Raphaelites; Ivor Cutler, Ella Fitzgerald, punk and 80s indie; Graham Greene, Evelyn Waugh and Virginia Woolf; Twin Peaks, Radio 4/Extra, 'Annie Hall'-era Woody Allen, Hitchcock, and 1940s/50s comedies and thrillers.

Although I don't have children, if you do I'd happily welcome them into my life as fully as you'd wish, I believe I'd be a good role-model and have had a previous similar relationship.

I have investments which provide my income, hence my 'retired' status. I have the basics, and beyond that I believe time is more precious than money - the so-called 'finer things in life' are not necessarily the best. My time is my own but to make the best of it, it would be fun to find someone quick-witted, affectionate and a little mischievous!

About his ideal match
