In His Own Words

About him

Full retired, I love being outdoors...hillwalking, beaches and riversides. In the bleak midwinter I go to the gym a couple of times a week. I holiday in the UK and Europe; not keen on long haul flights.

All the visual arts enthuse me, whether visiting exhibitions or drawing and painting(strictly amateur). I am also actively involved in field archaeology.
Educated but not urbane, I love the written word, including poetry, and have eclectic tastes. Radio 4 and Private Eye inform my world view. I tend to look at the world with a sideways glance and a wry smile.
I watch very little tv, much preferring a game of scrabble while sharing a bottle of wine.

Politically I lean towards the left and prefer hugging trees to felling them. I can 'scrub up' and wear a suit for special occasions but my natural garb is casual (though no holes in socks or shiny trouser seats).

Socially I am at ease in small groups but prefer not to be in crowded, noisy places nor with loud, opinionated people. That said, I am not a shrinking violet. Am I a gentleman? I still tend to walk on the outside and hold doors open but no longer carry a sword to protect damsels in distress.

Having misspent my youth on the south coast I lived in London during the heady 60's then moved north for the sweeping landscapes and wide skies of Northumberland.
I worked in education(teaching Sociology and Communication Studies) and latterly spent ten years running a craft woodworking business.

About his ideal match

Gosh! This IS the difficult bit. An ongoing zest for life and a readiness to laugh? An enthusiastic hands on approach to one of the arts would be good, a countryside lover, or an interest in history. I suppose I'm trying to say that at least one mutual interest is a good starter.
We all have different levels of fitness but a countryside lover/walking companion would be welcome: hills, sandy beaches, rocky coves or bosky dells; the distance isn't important.
Most profiles note the importance of chemistry. I am not sure it is definable....the sense of being at ease with someone within a short time of meeting them?

Deal breaker? I am definitely not looking for someone who wants to curl up and watch tv every evening, cook regular Sunday lunches or arrange my carpet slippers.
