In His Own Words

About him

Where am I now?
Full retired, I love being outdoors and walk/cycle whenever I can. I like sea swimming so holiday on the south coast(Dorset) and the Med. Profile pic was updated November 2017.
All the visual arts enthuse me, whether visiting exhibitions or drawing and painting(strictly amateur). I am also actively involved in archaeology: research, digging holes, making primitive pottery, even metal detecting.
I love the written word and have eclectic tastes. Radio 4 and Private Eye inform my world view. Looking at the world from a sideways perspective provides both truth and humour.
I like music but must admit to a high level of ignorance. I watch very little tv, much preferring a rowdy 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.
I have been separated for two years, the uncontested divorce should be finalised early 2018.

Where have I been?
Having misspent my youth on the south coast I lived in London during the heady 60's then moved north for the sweeping landscapes of Northumberland.
I don't wallow in the 60's but you need to know that Dylan/Joni Mitchell, Neil Young et al formed the soundtrack to my youth.
I worked in education(teaching Sociology and Communication Studies) and latterly spent ten years running a craft woodworking business.
My passion for motorcycling must cease following a serious accident this summer.
I was, and still am, a practical hands-on person: renovating houses, keeping bees, vegetable gardening. The garden and bees have gone but my new(old) house is an ongoing project.

About his ideal match

Gosh! This IS the difficult bit. An ongoing zest for life and a readiness to laugh? An enthusiastic approach to one of the arts would be good, 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, sandy beaches, rocky coves or bosky dells; the distance isn't important - togetherness is. Oh! Togetherness = Chemistry? Indefinable.....probably that sense of being totally at ease within a short time of meeting someone.
I would be happy to try out and share new interests.
I think that making the time to develop a trusting relationship is important - ultimately it would be great to spend holidays and weekends together.
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.
If you like what you read here then please get in touch - I am happy to message and answer questions (though I will be asking them too).
