In His Own Words

About him

In general, people think I am unusually young, active and versatile for my age. In retirement I have worked part time as an interviewer for government surveys, and in the past four years have published my memoirs on Amazon, taken up various pursuits, joining a variety of groups within the U3A including monthly walks in the country, and have participated as a pianist in chamber music courses in England, France and Switzerland, in addition to playing parts in three plays with two amateur dramatic companies. Some people think I am a good raconteur with a quirky sense of humour. I enjoy travel, and since 2014 have had holidays on several islands and in three continents. I have recently been Nordic walking and doing physical jerks for an hour in a weekly fitness dancing club. In earlier years I have attempted, with varying degrees of success, to learn ballroom and Latin American dancing, and am now attending a weekly Salsa class.

About his ideal match

I am hoping to meet a a kind, understanding lady with whom to share not necessarily my activities but my day-to-day existence, thoughts and feelings.
Ideally I would want to make her life happier than it has ever been
In short, I want to love and to be loved in a spirit of gentleness.
If such a relationship were impracticable, there might still be scope for us at a lower level, perhaps as holiday companions.
