In His Own Words

About him

You deserve someone who treats you as a priority and as a friend. Someone who wants to text you to see how your day has gone, and will cheer your successes and put your failures into perspective. Someone who prefers to say “we” rather than “I”. A person who wants to learn about your past to make your present and your future happier. A bloke that is happy to hold hands and cuddle for the sheer pleasure of it. Who wants your thoughts and opinions because he values your mind as much as anything else.
It would be nice if that could be me.

I’m easy going, happy with myself. I’m intelligent enough to appreciate what I don’t know, and keen to learn more. I’ve had an interesting career, but am keen to focus on other areas of my life now. I don’t smoke or gamble. I prefer red wine (Shiraz) and have clambered onto the gin bandwagon. I walk - a lot - with my dog, usually in the woods. Like being in nature, but fine curled up at home with a book (science fiction, crime, mystery or historical for preference) or sitting in front of that pub fire. (Where is that by the way, because it seems like a lot of us are there!)

A good sense of humour, though I do like really bad jokes that everyone else groans at. I can poke fun at myself as my Snapchat gender swop picture proves! Play board games, craft a bit, enjoy art, museums, theatre and galleries. Learning to meditate and journal and enjoying both.

Random facts: favourite colour is orange, like photography, hate butter, love cheese and tomato sandwiches, published 14 books, visited 50+ countries and can’t play a musical instrument, but wish I could. Anything else you’d like to know, just ask!

About his ideal match

If you like the countryside, long walks, dogs, reading curled up of an evening by a fireside, that works for me. If cuddles, hugs and holding hands are important, you like shared amused moments, but don't mind crazy now and then, that's a good start.

I don't in all honesty have a list of qualities, since we're all unique. The same trait in two different people can be adorable or annoying, depending on a whole host of factors. However, if you're a thinker, have opinions and will share them, if you're quick to laugh, care about people more than things, that's also a good start.

I find intelligent women (well, people generally!) very interesting and I’d love to hear your views on anything and everything. Good conversation is really important to me, and if we can have that while walking in the woods holding hands, that’s pretty close to my idea of heaven!
