In His Own Words

About him

I think I'm good fun, kind, energetic, adventurous, optimistic, honest, easygoing, reliable, trustworthy....and generous (with what I've got).

I'm definitely gregarious and outgoing too and I love humour, comedy and laughing at the bizarre and the "daft". That said, I try to always take an intelligent interest in society and the world around us and I consume large quantities of news and current affairs, on most days. I also definitely have a centrist/liberal/globalist worldview.

I love sport and will always want to participate multiple times per week, and keep as fit as possible, but after a period working in the sports industry, I'm not an obsessive supporter of any team or sport.

I also enjoy listening to music that moves me (see below!) and appreciating art of all types.

I have to say that I do find it hard to 'put up with' music and popular culture that doesn't 'click' with me (that just about makes sense I hope). To illustrate.....
Great = Notting Hill Carnival soundsystem.
Nightmare = Elton John/Coldplay concert/ Country & Western/handbag house at wedding reception.

I've been fortunate to travel to Australia and New Zealand (for work) and the Caribbean for holidays but Europe is my preferred destination. I was almost fluent in German at one time.
Skiing is a favourite but Mediterranean beaches, Bistros, Osterias or authentic Tapas are pretty good too. I like to think I'm a pretty decent cook (you might get to try it).

I live in West Yorkshire now, where I grew up, but I studied and worked in London for some years. I think the UK's capital is the greatest city in the world. I love its vibrancy and diversity.

Probably like most of us I'm not a fan of pomposity and arrogance.

Here's the quick-fire round...

My favourite food: French/Italian
My favourite wine: Red (any Beaujolais Cru)
My favourite film: Goodfellas
My favourite box-set: The Thick of It
My favourite band: Scritti Politti
My favourite podcast (currently): "Making podcasts great again"

About his ideal match

My ideal match would have intelligence, a good character, confidence, kindness, honesty, humour, fun, patience, resilience, vivaciousness, effervescence and be energetic.

Style, refinement and chic are also mega attractive (that doesn't mean opulence, ostentatiousness and excess, by the way).

Also a moral compass and a tolerant and liberal worldview are important to me. And I find it hard to understand anybody who doesn’t think it’s important to do their best look after their own health and well-being.

In answer to the question "What would make your relationship work?", I would say plenty of the above.

What activities would you like to share with your partner?

Anything we both enjoy. I enjoy keeping fit, participating in sport and being very active. I also enjoy music (probably best have a look at my music preferences!), film, theatre and culture, appreciating art of all types plus friendships and socialising, travel, cooking and eating (in and out).

What would you consider a deal breaker?
Illiberal or extremist views or hardline political dogma (of any shade).
Excessive lack of confidence.
Unattractive personality traits.
And I should probably add...."Leave" (I'm sure you know what I mean!)
