In His Own Words

About him

I work in education and love my work (most days).

Escape means painting and drawing, getting lost in music, nature, novels or Wikipedia, creative cooking and adventurous cycling. Then there's skiing, walking, backpacking in remote places, planting spring bulbs in my garden, trying to speak a new foreign language, discussing thought-provoking films we've just seen, strolling by the river, picking ripe tomatoes in my allotment or wild strawberries in the mountains...

I lived abroad for many years, in the US and later in France whence I returned with pretty fluent French, incurable Francophilia and even less hair than before. Travel of the wilder kind in Peru, India, China and Japan gave me incredible opportunities to see new nature and meet people of all kinds.

I'm the very lucky dad of two lovely sons and a beautiful daughter, the oldest 21. They're an essential part of my life.

I'm actually pescatarian (not on the dropdown) and I love good food. Give me oak-smoked salmon with buttery new potatoes, fresh asparagus and a chilled glass of Muscadet and I'm set up for the rest of the day.

Your plate does look more interesting, though. Do you think we could go halves?

I am in awe of David Attenborough, Miriam Rothschild, Omar Khayyam, Shakespeare and Yeol Eum Son..... and Google.

I got off on Life of Brian, The Deer Hunter, Breaking Bad, The Empress, 1984, and Manon des Sources...and you? Long, meandering discussions on people, places and politics are quite my thing.

I'm open, honest, adventurous, [xxxx less complimentary adjectives redacted xxxx], affectionate, loyal and kind.

You could say that I'm not very conventional but I really haven't experimented with rockets in quite a while.

There's plenty more to chat about, but more fun to do it in person, don't you think?

Re the photos: stripey shirt: 18 months ago, land of the long white cloud: 6 months ago, checked shirt: 8 years ago, blue plaid and jeans: even older than that.

About his ideal match

I think a good start would be to find someone sharing my basic values, humour and a sense of complicity. A lively, forward-looking mind is much more important than a toned bod....but a nicely-kept body really isn't going to be a problem. Things will be a lot easier if she's left of centre and loves the natural world. Even better if she shares my ecological tendencies....This is in danger of getting a bit too prescriptive and you probably get the general message, so I think I'll leave it there.
