In His Own Words

About him

Tricky this...how to be irresistably masculine, decisive, emotionally articulate & self deprecating, in a few words?!!
I am adventurous (not quite Bear Grylls, but managed to eat a large slice of Durian , in headman's hut on Sumatra, without gagging!); non conformist (work life spans accountancy , builder, worm catcher, to operating theatre technician); house trained (have been known to bake & eat a quiche!); artistic (well in my eyes...!) ; gregarious (book club, pub quiz, tennis) but happiest on a one to one, sharing experiences & emotions; sporty(cycling, tennis, walking, & does watching rugby count..?!)
Can be combative (in front of boorishness, racism etc.) but mostly easygoing & conversational.
Essentially I am a well mannered guy who wants to find a deep , meaningful partnership with a lovely woman who cherishes her individuality, but also misses the sharing.

About his ideal match

Like us all, I don't want to be prescriptive on this , sometimes it is the grit in the oyster that produces the alchemy (is that a mixed metaphor? one of my strong points?). Sorry, less me, & more you....
Essential qualities in a match would be physical & intellectual energy & curiosity. Socially & politically aware, adventurous, emotionally demonstrative, self confident & somewhat irreverent.
Preference for the pleasures of the countryside over urban life, perhaps a little, or even a lot , alternative, who enjoys a simple home cooked meal, as much as dressing up for a night out.
