In His Own Words

About him

I should like to meet people - women and men - in the Bath/Bristol/Wells/ Yeovil area to enhance my friendship circle - walks, theatre, cinema etc. I have been celibate for a long time and am not looking to change this. However, If a sexual/romantic component comes in (most unlikely) -I should not slam the door on it. But if it did, it would be with a man, not a woman.

I'm well-read but the info goes in one side of the brain and out the other. I'm 'arty' but not 'crafty' - and both an avid conversationalist and a lover of silence. I meditate daily though have no belief system. A gregarious loner, introspective extrovert and warm-hearted cynic, I thrive on contradiction and paradox. With a keen ironic sense of humour, I'll probably entertain, stimulate and exasperate you in equal measure. I may be doing so already. Oh, and if you're looking for someone to mend a fuse, stay well clear. I'll electrocute us both, and blow the house up for good measure. Keep away too if you have an urge to discuss your grand kiddies. I enjoy being with children but go off them in the telling.

As an only child, I developed solitary pursuits and an independent spirit. Despite this, I've always worked relationally -with adults - as a teacher and psychotherapist. - Interests? Walking ; theatre ; cinema; art . Music; Bach, Beethoven, Adele; Dusty Springfield,; deep soul ballads ( books written and published on the last two subjects). Although I don't stay in the same mind-set for long -that's the way of all things- flux and flow - I'm a loyal friend and a good listener. Politics? Well, lapsed lefty - like most so-called 'socialists' in 2013.

I don't expect - or even want - another person to share my interests. Indeed, some of my oldest friends don't even share my values. Who can say why people are, or are not, compatible? 'Tis all a mystery.

I'll stop before verbal diarrhoea sets in. ( oh , and you'll notice I can spell. Well, if you can get 'diarrhoea' right -I have, haven't I? -you're fit for anything!)

About his ideal match

I don't have an 'ideal match'. Indeed, I find the such a notion rather odd. Compatibility is not determined by looks or interests but by that elusive something called 'chemistry' - this attraction exists in all friendships between woman and woman, man and man and man and woman.

Nonetheless, the men and women I seek to know are engaged with life and saying, 'yes, I'm up for it' rather than 'I'm too tired' or 'It might rain' or 'I'm not sure I can afford it'. I'm not after a sugar daddy or mummy who's overdosed on adrenolin - just a few people with inquiring minds and open hearts who share and care and wonder and laugh and lark about a bit. Okay, you may have health problems -I've had them too - but it's attitude that counts, especially when the time ahead is less than the time gone by. That's what this whole 'connections' thing seems to me to be about..
