In His Own Words

About him

I am eager to find a new wife, as my first wife recently died. I think I can bring great happiness and fulfilment to an educated lady who is in need of a life-partner. I appreciate clever women and it is with such women that I naturally get on best, being an Oxford professor of Old Testament Studies (retired) myself. There are many interesting subjects I enjoy talking about, be it to do with Biblical studies and the ancient world (e.g. Biblical Archaeology, Egyptology, Assyriology), politics (Liberal/Social Democratic/moderate left - strongly anti-Brexit!), history (ancient and modern), archaeology, languages (ancient and modern), travel, or humour. I’d love to take you on foreign holidays (I’ve already visited 25 countries), especially in the Middle East and Mediterranean area. And I love going to museums (especially of antiquities) and art galleries. I also love classical music (Handel, Bach and organ music are my favourites). And I like news programmes and documentaries on TV and radio, as well as quiz games. I find it quite easy to make people laugh, having a good sense of humour, which is something women often say they want in a partner! I have a Christian religious faith (liberal Anglican), strongly anti-fundamentalist and believing that religions need to come to terms with modern knowledge. I have a large house in a quiet area of Oxford, with a library of 20,000 books, and a lovely large garden to share. Although 73, people think I’m a lot younger - indeed I’m young at heart. I would love to bring happiness to the one I truly love (as I did to my late wife), I enjoy physical touch and hanky panky.

About his ideal match

My ideal match would be a highly educated woman, certainly with a good university degree and possibly with a doctorate. Perhaps she is or has been an academic herself. Ideally she would be between about 45 and 60 years of age and would be reasonably physically attractive. She will be kind, easy to get on with, generous, having a good sense of humour, and sharing at least some of my interests detailed above, e.g foreign travel, museums, art galleries, intellectual conversation, a liberal Christian religious faith (but not fundamentalist (I’m a liberal Anglican myself), politics (Liberal/moderate left), languages (ancient and modern), history (ancient and modern).
