In His Own Words

About him

I'm a hopeless romantic!


I wanted to lie about my age as my partners have always been younger than me (my ex is 53). Photo 6 is 18 months old. The Birkbeck shot is 3 years ago.

I'm a writer and writing teacher and I love to share my time with people who want to do more than merely coast through life, who are inquisitive, ready to try new ideas, new places, people, take risks and WORK at their dreams.

(PS After publishing five crime novels I chose to write serious fiction which pays absolute peanuts, so to put it simply, I'm never likely to be rich.)

I love good conversation, "intense discussion", dinner, wine, theatre, film (and of course, books and writing!) travel, fitness, (walking, jogging, gym) playing and watching sport, especially soccer.

Also a keen amateur photographer and like long walks carrying shedloads of photography kit!

I was divorced August 2013, so 2013 wasn't so good, but I've re-found my feet, am back in the gym, back on track

I am a bookaholic, and eternal student. Last year was Philosophy & Chinese.

I am occasionally intense, but I make a good friend.


Getting back into meeting people, socialising and dating was never going to be easy. (Still isn't - it's a bit weird, to be honest...)

Meeting people and getting out there is still a work in progress, but Snowball 2015 is a better guy than the 2014 model and a lot more interesting than "2013" and (I hope) improving by the day!

I'm learning to PROPERLY cook!


PS

All the above is factual, but a bit dry and boring!! But wouldn't you like to meet a guy who trains dragons, has wrestled with a suspected terrorist on a plane over London, been court-martialled for refusing an order, "should have been an MP", has run 10+ marathons, bakes his own bread, has published half-a-dozen books, writes poetry and literary fiction, nearly died on a mountain, cannot walk past a bookshop, once climbed out of a train-wreck and has an ancestor called Archangel, another who may have got away with murder?

About his ideal match

Whatever your chronological age, you think you "ought to be 39" and can't believe your birth certificate says XX, it's a trick...

Sincerely I know "old" 40-year-olds and young 60's.

You care about your health and fitness, care about life, care about people, want intensity, want things to matter more. You are probably left-of-centre politically and believe that no rich country should have a food-bank, not one.

You're slim/average, not because body-shape matters but ATTITUDE does, and you want to be the best you can.

If you saw a beautiful sunset, you'd know it would be better shared.

If your looking for "a companion" (code, IMO, for an incomplete relationship) maybe look elsewhere, BUT much as a couple of flings would be kinda nice, I'm genuinely not a fling type of bloke, so pass (tho' I could be persuaded...)

:-)

I want to meet real people, make real friends, mingle etc, but I'm a long-term relationship type of guy and would eventually like to find someone who wants her own space, and to be her own independent spirit, but comes to me to be fully with me, because, when we meet, when we are together, we both feel fulfilled.
