In His Own Words

About him

I work in the dusty halls of academia. I enjoy my work. Once out, I like to escape to singing, painting and drawing, reading novels, skiing (when I can afford it) and tending my garden.

Nature is my greatest love and inspiration. Mountains, seas, and forests, yes, but also their inhabitants. Some might find my fascination with wildflowers and butterflies unusual (perhaps unnatural?). As with other peculiarities, you're not obliged to share these but toleration is obviously essential and appreciation a whole lot better.

I lived abroad for several years in the US then again in France from which I returned with fluent French, a lasting and hopeless francophilia and even less hair than I had before (see photo).

In between, there have been Peru, Japan, China, India...There's still so much of the world to see and not much time. I need to get serious and see more far-flung wonderful nature while it's still there. How would you feel about coming along?

I'm the lucky dad of two lovely sons and a beautiful daughter all under 21. They are an important part of my life and will remain so after my divorce.

You might also like to know:

I'm pescatarian, not vegetarian: there are few things I like more than a good lobster with melted butter and a glass of chilled Muscadet.

I am quite "visually-oriented" - by visual beauty - although you might not think so from my everyday attire (and it's not an essential criterion for finding a partner).

Politically, I am left-wing and green.

I have a strong sense of justice.

I am affectionate by nature and quite demonstrative.

I try hard to be kind and honest with those about me.

I hope I am loyal and caring with those who are important to me.

I venerate David Attenborough and "Life of Brian".

I have an enquiring mind and gravitate towards similar ones. So, I'd like to know: What interests you? What's your passion? What are your ambitions on this earth? What are your hopes and fears? What brings you joy?

About his ideal match

I’m looking for a lasting relationship and it seems to me that a few things are going to be indispensable: sharing basic values, humour and a sense of complicity. Beyond these:

A good, lively mind is almost certainly more important than a good body....but a nicely-kept body is certainly no hindrance.

I am looking for someone who is principled, honest and direct in her relations. She should be able to show affection and tell me what she's feeling.

Political values mean that she needs to be left of centre and it would be nice if she also had ecological tendencies. If Caroline Lucas were on Ivory Towers, I'd be the first in her inbox. ​

She should be educated and value education/culture (both arts and sciences if poss).

It would (obviously) be best if we had a few interests and pastimes in common.

If, like me, she can no longer pretend to be in the first flush of youth then, at least, she should be young in her expectations and desires and often find herself behaving younger than her age. Her interest in the world around her should be undimmed and she should still be acting upon that interest.

(That's it.)
