In His Own Words

About him

You should get to know me if you enjoy ( reasonably ) stimulating conversation and would like to meet a man who is interested in friendship without a sexual component. My sense of humour is ironic, and self-disparaging: as a teacher I was considered 'funny' - in both senses of the word. I like the company of men and women about equally, but if you're looking for 'someone special' or That Romantic Someone, I'm not your man.

I am celibate by disposition, and describe myself as a gregarious loner and an introspective extrovert. In other words, full of contradiction. For instance, I like walking in the countryside yet probably have a metropolitan mind-set.; I've written books on Dusty Springfield and soul ballads yet listen to JS Bach; I am intellectual and bookish yet respond to things intuitively and emotionally; I feel things deeply yet am cynical and unsentimental; I'm told I'm an excellent listener but can talk the hind legs off a donkey.

I consider I'm more self-aware than most people, yet I'm a mystery to myself. The older I become the less I know about anything. However, although I know nothing of any importance, I doubt if anyone else does either. My favourite book title is, 'If you meet the buddha on the road, kill him'. I think I can say that most people like me but I'm not always easy company. You should get to know me, above all, because I'm not like anyone else. Last but not least, I am sceptical and ambivalent about everything - including writing this description.

About his ideal match

I don't have 'an ideal match'. I am interested in hearing from both men and women, who want good mutually beneficial friendship/ companionship rather than lerv and romance from Monsieur Right.

If you like what I've written about myself, maybe we'll get on? The qualities I value include: being able to laugh at oneself; intellectual curiosity; psychological astuteness: broad-mindedness; sensitivity and kindness; a generosity of spirit; a serious but light approach to things; a keen interest in the arts; a certain amount of mental/physical energy.

I'd like to share the journey ahead with some compatible companions. Maybe it's too much to ask? Or are there folk out there who feel the same?
