In His Own Words

About him

You have to kiss a lot of frogs; this much you already know. However, I’d like to reassure you that there is more to me than a slimy green skin and an ability to pluck a passing dragonfly out of the air with a flick of the tongue, impressive (and no doubt useful in so many unexpected ways) as that may be.
If you want a regular vanilla male, swipe left (or whatever it is on here). Nothing wrong with that, but it's not really me. If, however, you are looking for someone who is rather different... I'm emotionally and intellectually intelligent, articulate, calm, warm, open, thoughtful, broadminded, a good listener, and excellent company. As frogs go, this is really good!
I retired a few years ago. I was CEO of a charity and a consultant, and was also involved in running personal development organisations and courses.
I love travel - I've trekked to Macchu Picchu, ballooned over Valley of the Kings, stalked rhinos, swum with giant mantas, sat on the edge of Victoria Falls, and flown over Everest. I also enjoy the countryside and seaside, walking, NT props, canals & narrowboats, playing bridge, cinema, theatre, eating out, cooking, reading and quiz-setting.
My photos are mostly from 2018 & 2019 (and BTW no Komodo Dragons were harmed!), so what you see would be what you get. That's reassuring, right? Or, then again, maybe not. And just between the two of us: I’ve recently had my 70th birthday, but since the last year has been such a non-event, I’m giving 69 another go. Don’t tell a soul.

About his ideal match

Our time is not infinite, yet there are adventures to be had! So then, that last great romance - to find someone with whom to share good times for the rest of our lives. I’m looking for a best friend, passionate lover, confidante, intellectual companion, and fellow traveller – all in one. Too much to ask? I hope not.
Let’s be blunt: if you've got green skin with huge warts, webbed feet, and swivelling eyes on each side of your head, then please don't get in touch. I was kidding about the frog thing. You knew that, right?
If, however, you value (as I do) honesty, integrity, compassion, and kindness, if you are emotionally aware, if you care about communication, about fairness and about social justice, if you can listen and speak from the heart, then we could well find we really get on.
Very probably you already enjoy adventures, including trips to far-off places and some winter time away in the sun. Wouldn’t it be great to plan those things together? There are so many wonderful experiences, and so much better shared. In-between there are walks, NT visits, cooking supper together, watching movies, eating out, and putting the world to rights. And...well, who knows what more?
I do think a shared philosophy is important in a relationship. If you are politically right wing and/or think that Brexit is great then we are unlikely to hit it off - it's about how we are towards others, and the sort of society we want to live in.

What His Friends Say

Dena said...

M and I met at a holistic centre in the Greek Islands about 25 years ago and found that we lived near each other, so stayed in touch. Our friendship grew over time (I'm a female by the way!) and I feel as if I've had an opportunity over that time to see who he really is.
Honesty and integrity are a prerequisite for me in my friendships and I have never had cause to question these qualities in him ... which makes him a really safe and reliable person to have around. I know I can trust him to do what he says he's going to do.
In addition to this, he has an adventurous spirit and acts like someone 20 years younger, and always seems to be planning one exotic trip or another!
If you're anything like me, you will have been looking for a man who is self-assured without being controlling and who can step up to the plate if needed but who, at the same time, is also gentle, sensitive, caring, thoughtful and compassionate. This is a rare combination and, in my experience, very difficult to find. And yet, here he is! On top of all this, he always manages to see the funny side of things and pick up on the absurdity of life.
If I had to come up with one character fault, it would have to be that he is a Spurs supporter ... I'm Chelsea so it's amazing our friendship has survived this long!
But seriously, if you are intrigued by M and his profile touched you in any way, do get in touch. He's one of the good guys.
