In His Own Words

About him

Instead of looking ahead to ageing I like to use age for experience & time to be busy that benefit others. Better busy than bored; trouble is that reduces time & energy! but its certainly a way to make the most of life! I love sport firstly Rugby, then Le Mans/motor sport, cricket, cycling, swimming & canoeing in the summer. I've been known to hot air balloon, paraglide, scuba/snorkel & abseil too! Plus I love flying in a Cessna/Cherokee or similar. I have shares in horses. I don't follow football though. Food/wine feature strongly. I also love a day in a National Trust/English Heritage setting or where there is history, architecture, geographical beauty, wild countryside or just a good cream tea in a charming village! Music is also fairly important & being a child of the 60s/youth of 70s that grew into the 80s means that era is dear to me, such as Simple Minds & Deacon Blue, but I love Mumford & Sons, Adele & Snow Patrol too. There's so much more, but that would be great to share in further conversations.I do find it so uncomfortable trying to be so specific/prescriptive in seeking a partner/friend where some same matching selection will help! I quite like difference and tolerance. Whist genuine in responses, surely there's more to values & what is "under the surface". I do enjoy erudite conversation with fun & diverse interest. Hopefully our first meeting won't be conducted with a review of my investments or scrutiny of my past, plus a judgement made on the whole PERCEIVED picture of "what seems"...or the car I arrive in! But I do agree that some guide is required & some preferences may help. But does it matter what colour eyes you have? Anyway I look forward to meeting you if share my wish to fill a trolley in a French hypermarket with cheese, wine, fruit, smoked sausages, garlic, truffles & a 10 year old smoked oak barrel aged cognac, plus enjoys a zest for adventure/fun.

About his ideal match

I hate being prescriptive and searching for a stereotype that fits certain criteria....character, values and conversation are much more important with some tolerance and respect . So I could say my ideal match would share the wish to jump off a mountain in a paraglider or do an eskimo roll in the white waters of the Ardeche or just say lets do dinner...and talk! But I simply couldnt do it with a smoker, unless they really were giving up and were really wanting to give up and were really trying..emphasis on REALLY....not pretending...there you are in between courses and a really good bottle of wine, flowing in conversation.....and then ......"I must go out for a smoke" ....!!!
So my ideal match could be a variety of tick boxes, but they would probably be quite busy, in some way or another, erudite/articulate in speech and expression and most likely to be able to hold a good conversation or maybe a challenging and constructive argument. And they would like some fun and adventure occasionally as well as a bit of culture, history, natural wildlife or geography/travel.
