In His Own Words

About him

I play a 12 string guitar and love to sing ballads (my empathic and romantic streak) as well as singalong/comedy songs. So although physically and mentally strong, I can also be tactile, soft and loving.... the Gemini influence!
Although not a verbal extrovert, I do enjoy intelligent/stimulating conversations, and with a sense of humour.
I am very sincere, honest, reliable, loyal and respectful... all of which I deeply value in a partner, together with understanding and good communication. Oh and I am not at all chauvinistic.

Although relatively slim, I do love to eat well (lots). I'm not a fussy eater (other than hating beetroot!), enjoying all food but do prefer fresh and healthy options, and have been told that I am a joy to cook for! I will finish what's left!

I am a patient teacher and have been told that I am a good one.

As a marine/electrical/electronics/mechanical engineer I am very practical resulting in DIY being second nature. I'm also comfortable with all techy stuff as I ran IT systems and developed web sites before I retired from work (not life) 2 years ago - my ethic being to "work to live, not live to work".

I previously maintained a big garden doing all the manly stuff, hedges/logging for the wood burner etc but also grew veg. and so have partially green fingers. Am also eco-minded in terms of waste and energy. I have many interests and like try new things, enjoy new experiences and although widely travelled, still have countries to visit on my bucket list. I like to help others using my skills where I can. I have been told by that I am a good and patient teacher when it comes to sailing or tech.

About his ideal match

Having completed a long term circumnavigation before being land based for the last 15 years, I seek a soul-mate with whom to share a mix of a UK land life and short/long summer cruises in the Med (or beyond?). Ideally, I'm looking for a fit and agile outdoor type who works part time or not at all, and would like to sail south with me in summer 2017, probably in stages to fit in with work/land life. However if you don't already sail, we'll just have to see if you have the inclination and aptitude to give it a try beforehand.
My pet hates ?? ... profanities, poor diction, "like" incorporated into every sentence, and unreliability/poor timekeeping.

I have been on my own for nearly two years now, and although I have been relatively content working in/on my new nautical man-shed for the last year, I do hate not having a loving companion with whom to share all that life and sailing has to offer... perhaps you could be that missing someone.
