In His Own Words

About him

I'm articulate, warm, kind and thoughtful with a lively personality and an engaging, dry irreverent sense of humour. People generally find me easy going, positive, optimistic, calm and quietly confident.

I've a huge range of interests which includes in no particular order epicurean cooking, literature [fiction and non], cinema, theatre, alternative comedy, music and visiting art galleries and exhibitions. In the summer I like to go to Arts, Literary and Music Festivals [aka Hay, Salisbury, Chichester, Womad et al]. I read the Observer and listen habitually to R4, interspersed with music and discussion on R3. I also have a penchant for folk rock acoustic guitar music.

Something of a francophile, I speak French passably and have visited many times, mainly for walking / mountain trekking [aka Tour du Mont Blanc, GR 20 Corsica, Haute Randonee Pyrenees] trips.

Daily aerobic exercise, currently mainly through swimming / cycling / gym, is important for me - I enjoy water sports, especially dinghy sailing and wind surfing [my favourite place is West Wittering], and hope soon to try kite-surfing [looks fun from the beach !] . Walking in the country [New Forest, South Downs NP's] and coastal footpaths [especially Dorset - Jurassic Way] is a relaxation.

More cerebrally, I have a passion for music and am currently learning piano and acoustic guitar. My tastes are quite catholic and include classical, opera, modern jazz, world, and folk-rock. I do go quite often to concerts, theatre [especially modern cutting edge drama [Turner Sims, Nuffield, Chichester FT], and cinema [studio & mainstream - most recently I've seen 'Ghost' and 'Detroit'], although I feel these pleasures are best shared to enjoy the most - having a post show review discussion over a relaxing glass of wine.

I read widely [try and read each of the Mann Booker shortlist] and generally have a least two books 'on the go' at any point in time.

About his ideal match

Not a raging feminist either, she enjoys cooking and entertaining, and appreciates someone who will hold open a door, and walk on the outside of the pavement ! A woman who is affectionate, communicative, tactile, quintessentially feminine, slim, attractive [in my eyes], open minded with an inquiring mind, someone who is smart, lively company and with a ready sense of humour.

Integrity and honesty are a given, clearly someone intelligent, both emotionally and intellectually, a lady that is self-assured as well as re-assuring, combined with sensitivity and the facility to listen receptively is important. Someone who cares, is respectful and supportive. It would also facilitate things if they were towards the left of the political spectrum.

Ideally, I'm looking for a woman who can share my enthusiasms, especially for the theatre and live music events, as well as the outdoors. So, if you are sincere about finding a relationship and some of these brief musings strike a chord [or even an arpeggio] then why not get in touch.
