In His Own Words

About him

Though reserved and fond of hours and hours of reading and writing time, I love companionship, and am quite romantic at heart. I am addicted to reading novels and watching plays and films, and am trying to write a novel and poems. Not everyone's glass of bubbly then, and doubtless an acquired taste. But aesthetically pretty sophisticated and knowledgeable

About his ideal match

I'm looking above all for someone to talk to about everything - literature, life, music, secrets, politics etc. Good conversation is the best thing of all; and the rest of the time filling the mind with interesting stuff to talk about. If you happen to love literature and tennis we could be a good match. Of course, ideally, I'd like someone cuddly and sexy as well, but I can't claim that I am either of those things - I think I want friendship more than anything.
