In His Own Words

About him

Because the thought of an intelligent, intellectual, cultured, unconventional, quick-witted and funny barrister/mediator makes you want to stop clicking and start scrolling.

I work in the City and live on a boat in a lovely rural setting. Work provides the essential intellectual stimulus but is somewhat less good at feeding the soul. For that I need the arts, music, beauty, passion. To see a world in a grain of sand...

I'm strong, kind, open, honest, generous, thoughtful, romantic. Prone to random acts of kindness, tactile and generous with hugs. I enjoy being alone but relish good company, true friends, stimulating conversation and moments of quiet tenderness.

Fun and laughter are essential. I delight in a clever play on words but painfully bad puns are equally welcome. I have a wry view of life and see the funny side of most situations. I don't take myself too seriously. Am forgetful of my age; I tend not to allow my life to be constrained by the number of times the Earth happens to have been round the Sun whilst I've been on it.

I'm a thinker. I have a thirst for knowledge and a sense of wonder. Am dismayed at my own ignorance. Thank goodness for Radio 4 and for Jonathan Miller, Richard Dawkins, Simon Schama, et al. I dislike injustice, cowardice, prejudice, hypocrisy, intellectual dishonesty and wanton stupidity. Not least, my own. Work in progress...

I love the outdoors and nature. Bare feet rather than shoes. BMF, running and yoga keep me fit. I love a challenge, adventure and spontaneity. Why go to Tesco by car when you can go by canoe? Am mystified by people who are able to walk beneath a horse-chestnut tree in autumn without picking up a conker.

Some favourite quotes:

"When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained" (Twain)

"Keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out." (Dawkins)

"Don't worry about what other people think of you. You'd be surprised at how rarely they do it" (David's Dad)

About his ideal match

My ideal match is clever, funny, educated, cultured, articulate, free-spirited, independent-minded, with a zest for life and a sense of fun. She is adventurous and passionate about life and about what matters to her. She can see beauty wherever it may be found, can express her thoughts and feelings freely and appreciates intimacy, being held (emotionally and physically) and long, melting hugs. She likes to love and to be loved, is thoughtful, thought-provoking, curious about life, reasonably fit and enjoys being outdoors and active. She is someone who can be herself, is tolerably happy in her own skin and who would at least struggle to remain empty-handed when passing a conker tree in autumn.

In the absence of such a wonderful creature, someone veering towards the above...?
