In His Own Words

About him

The profile title was going to be "barrister seeks new briefs", but it struck me that that could be misconstrued. I'm a public schoolboy, more Stephen Fry than Hugh Grant, probably more defined by my work than I should be, with a penchant for cheese and a passion for culture. More likely to blast Widor's Toccata on the car radio than Bat out of Hell, my tastes are nevertheless catholic. I'm as happy with a microwaved ready meal as I am in Le Gavroche. I love animals, especially dogs. David Attenborough is a hero. I have three grown-up kids, two of whom have just started uni and college courses, leaving me [*sings in squeaky falsetto*] All By Myself...

Update, Sunday, 4 September 2016: Clearly, based on the prevalence of searches specifying slim and/or athletic body types, I'm going to have to do some sit-ups. Or forego the Camembert that I have in the oven as I type, even though it's calling to me in a soft French accent. Or go on a soup and rabbit food diet. Yeeugh. Or get on my bike, if it hasn't rusted solid.

Further update, Monday, 5 September: It struck me, as I began to get out of breath just reading about all of the sporting exploits in others' profiles, that there's one sporty thing that I can do to a reasonable degree of competence: ski ! Ah, the sun glinting off the fresh snow, the smell of pine trees, the glühwein, the... cheese fondue!

Update, Sunday, 2 October: The diet is working, in spite of having cheated with a packet of poppy seed crackers. Contemplating losing the facial fuzz, even if it does compensate for thinning up top. Why, oh why, does hair stop growing where you want it and start sprouting in places you'd rather it didn't?

About his ideal match

You are educated, well-read and love furry animals. You rail against injustice and despise bigotry. You are a lateral thinker and refuse to let the bastards grind you down. You appreciate haute cuisine but take comfort in baked beans on toast. You know your Verdi from your Vivaldi, your Goya from your Gainsborough, your culture from your kulcha. You think it's OK to be vulnerable and imperfect, to laugh at fart jokes and cry at inhumanity.
