In His Own Words

About him

Music, books, art and nature are some of the ingredients that make for a happy life. Add theatre, country walks, rustic pubs and travel and you're close to a perfect recipe. Add a dash of wine, then only the most important ingredient is missing; someone to share it!
Not a permanent live-in partner, but someone I'll miss when she's not there, and whom I'll think about often between meetings. Someone to trust, confide in and occasionally shed a tear with. In short, someone who in the course of time will become a close friend, and hopefully more. The profile below is the boring factual stuff. By all means read on, but the real me is what's above.
I am tall(ish), slim, intelligent, with a wide range of interests and, I believe, a caring nature. Looks and personality you would have to judge for yourself if and when we meet, but the photos are from 2015 - 2016 and are not airbrushed or Photoshopped!
I'm a retired IT consultant who likes languages and most kinds of music, especially classical, opera and traditional jazz. I go out walking regularly, which keeps me reasonably fit and active, and I also like the cinema, the theatre, reading, painting and writing. In my local U3A I enjoy French, Italian, Music Appreciation and Art. On TV I like good drama, documentaries, off-beat humour and the occasional sports programme.
I spent eight years working in Belgium and also eight years in retirement in Australia. After returning to the UK because of the Global Financial Crisis, I moved to Bolton at the end of 2014 to be close to family. If things go well, I hope to form a friendship, and who knows, perhaps a long-term, serious relationship, but not to the extent of a 24/7 live-in arrangement.
I am a convinced atheist, and firmly on the left politically, but without being strident about either. However, as a non-smoker, smoking is the one thing I can't compromise on.

About his ideal match

Honest, intelligent, trustworthy, warm-hearted lover of nature, music, walks, books and the arts, who is looking for a companion with similar interests, and later on, possibly more.

I would like to meet someone who would initially join me on trips to the theatre and to concerts, with a view to having joint holidays later on, and eventually a serious relationship.
