In His Own Words

About him

After a year of change, now seemed a good time to refresh my profile and update photos. Still a few grey hairs - I tell my barber each grey is a lesson I’ve learned, so plenty left to learn some more!

I am a quiet and thoughtful person, bit of an introvert, calm, honest, caring and measured approach to life, bit of a dry sense of humour and like a bit of banter.

I enjoy cooking, anything outdoors, fishing to help relax, time with my dogs and a nice beer.
Over the years I’ve tried all sorts of hobbies. I have just started a yoga class and really enjoying it - it compliments my Mindfulness practices well.

I have recently bought a caravan to hopefully do a bit of travelling in 2022 with some weekends away and maybe a couple of longer trips. I love the sense of freedom that I can take off when I want. Planning on going to Scotland in September.

I have just retired after 33 years in the nuclear industry - the only time I glow is when I’ve been in the sun for more than half an hour. I was planning on taking a year off but a chance conversation ended up with me in a headmaster’s office and I’ve been offered an exciting part-time job.

Sadly got divorced last year. It hit me hard initially but I’ve gone through the grieving part and recognise the opportunities of the brave new world ahead of me. Things nearly all sorted - house is sold so should be moving next spring.

I love to travel and experience different cultures. My favourite countries are Belgium for the beer and Sweden for their attitude. More travels to Asia is on my bucket list.

My retirement present to myself was a fishing kayak. Only tried it on the river so far but want to take it to sea. If you hear of someone being rescued half way to Holland it will probably be me! One of the photos is me on the kayak - I look a little serious as an angry swan was coming towards me.

Thank you for taking time to read my profile and I wish you well on your quest for whoever is right for you.

About his ideal match

I am not sure what my ideal match would be so will move slowly, taking my time and see what happens.
Perhaps someone who has outdoor interests so we could have an active day outside followed by a nice meal, in summer watch a sunset or in winter sit round an open fire so you could enjoy your favourite drink and I could have a nice beer.

Possibly someone with a bit of patience, has raised children, had some life experiences, has some of their own hobbies and friends, prepared to get me to try new things and have a laugh along the way.

Someone who has a relaxed attitude to life but likes to glam up occasionally- maybe a cruise dinner with the captain?

Perhaps someone who loves chocolate so we can do a joint pilgrimage to Belgium.

Hopefully someone who can tolerate me going fishing and can be my emergency contact when I’m out on the kayak!
