In His Own Words

About him

I am sociable and like intelligent and amusing company. I can be witty and I try not to take things too seriously. Being domesticated, I cook reasonably well and like entertaining. I eat healthily, not to say that I wouldn't turn away the odd pork pie!  I've suffered tragedy in recent years but I'm resilient and able to withstand most knocks that life can and does deliver.

I have a house in southern Brittany. It's 15 minutes from the coast and is a good base from which to travel further afield.  I have retained contact with friends in Finland and Denmark and visit Helsinki and Copenhagen. In the last few  years I've travelled to Costa Rica, Canada, the USA, Sweden, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Finland and France of course.

Languages  fascinate me and I speak tolerable Swedish and can read Danish.  Despite adult education classes, my French is pathetique!  I have a couple of guitars, but wouldn't inflict my feeble attempts to play them on anyone I considered to be a friend!  My taste in music is eclectic, Wagner on my new hi fi is sensational! but I do have a penchant for the 60s, ah nostalgia rules! And thank goodness for Spotify. I'm a National Trust Member. I enjoy riding my bikes, but they stay in the garage most of the time!

My career involved scrutinising projects across English central government departments. Although employed in a serious profession, I always tried to inject a little humour into my work. I was also seconded to Sweden, Finland and Denmark where I looked at government projects in those countries.  In Sweden, I worked exclusively in Swedish. Spoken Danish was too unfathomable to decipher during the year I lived in Copenhagen!  As for Finnish, well I defy anyone to learn Finnish in 6 months!

Thanks for reading this far. My main photo was taken in November 2016 and the others in April and October 2016.

About his ideal match

This is very difficult and only when we meet will we get some idea as to how well matched we might be.

Someone who is fun to be with and not encumbered with life's burdens.  Someone who is loving and totally honest, and who doesn't take things too seriously. Perhaps you might just like to dance around the sitting room with me while listening to some 60s music! Or, relax with Sibelius in the background! Or perhaps be thrilled by the Ring Cycle! And also, someone I can converse with, small talk, matters of importance, politics, anything!

Someone spontaneous, for example, if we decided to visit my French home, we could just up sticks and go! It would be great if that someone could share the driving but that's not so important! We could then explore the beautiful coastal areas of southern Brittany together. And of course, I would love to explore some of your favourite destinations with you.

I want to enhance someone's life and I want that special person to enhance my life. I have a comfortable life and I would like you to be in it. So please come and find me.
