In His Own Words

About him

Left to myself, I'm an early riser. I'm in the habit of visiting the gym for gentle exercise, prepping the day's hot meal, and finishing breakfast by about 8am ...

If you're still on the page, dear reader, here's a little more ...

I see myself as a slim, shy, single, solvent, serious, sober man who is a patient realist. I attended independent day schools, and I believe I speak with a 'standard' English accent. The central theme of my life has been (and is) education.

I would further describe myself as a faithful family man, responsible, steady, reliable, honest, caring, sincere, and even-tempered. I'm careful with money, budgets, and plans for the future. I'm orientated towards an eco-sensitive lifestyle, home cooking, healthy eating, and prudently maintaining fitness (walking and cycling). And it would also be true to life to say that I take time to express my emotions.

I'm somewhat 'quirky' in that I have no wish to be 'retired'. I'm a fairly new arrival on the south coast (from central England), and I'm settling into my bungalow (which I'm slowly refurbishing). I've a schedule of family visits (three wonderful daughters and eight growing grandchildren), and I'm quite involved with voluntary work [currently suspended]. In addition, my commitment to wisdom spirituality means that I feel that only the present moment really matters, and that the only person I can (and want to) change is myself.

I'm also 'qwerty' in that, having completed a childhood memoir, I anticipate spending some time in the future writing an adult memoir.

However, to share a special late-life relationship (the details of which would be negotiable) with a compatible, compassionate woman would (I hope) be a blessing to both of us.

Despite a cautious, realistic approach to living and an administrative persona, I'm not as serious as I may seem to be. There is a relaxed tactile person with a warm heart behind my cautious, conventional exterior.

In summary, I would describe myself as "Mr Reliable".

About his ideal match

I'm hoping to meet a woman who lives not too far away from BH7.

And I feel that I may be compatible with a graduate professional woman who is committed to public service or creative endeavours (of one kind or another) in the community. (It may also be the case that, like me, she was the first child born to her parents.)

I anticipate that (to recall a saying of many years ago) that she would desire "to live simply that others may simply live". I would hope that she has a positive attitude to fitness and healthy food (without being extreme). And I think it's likely that she may be unencumbered with the care of (non-human) animals.

Just as I don't wish to be 'rescued', the woman I'm hoping to meet may not be looking for a 'dependency' relationship in which autonomy is infringed. Rather, with "The Prophet's" advice in mind (that two trees would be wise not to grow in each other's shade), she is likely to be well able to cope on her own, to "bloom where she is planted", and to regard a special late-life relationship as a bonus.

In conclusion, I would like to meet (in a covid-secure way) someone who continues to feel young at heart, who feels that a special relationship is organic and takes time to develop, that there may be some good times still to come, that the whole of life is an adventure in love and forgiveness, that the best things in life are free, and that "life is victorious over all magic".
