In His Own Words

About him

Reliable and relatively unscarred by life so far. Not someone who wants to play games or put up an impression different to the real thing - what you see is what you get.

I'm outgoing, reasonably thoughful and like to get out and engage with the world around me. Pretty down to earth, laugh a lot (often at myself) but also like to chew things over and think them through with friends. However, I think they'd say I'm not too serious as a person, although I can be when that's what's needed.

I'm self-employed, which is quite flexible. I've got plenty to do, but within limits I can adjust to clear a day, or a week if I wish, which is great. I used to have a 9-5 job, but was very lucky that everything fell into place at just the right time 11 years ago, and I was able to do something completely different, turning one of my hobbies into a living. I really enjoy it.

Lots of people mention travel. I've spent several great years working in East Africa and still travel there from time to time, & to the Middle East & Latin America. Closer to home, I love walking with friends in the Yorkshire Dales & Scotland, but in the end I'd rather be anywhere with somebody whose company I love than in the most exotic location with the wrong person.

I've said I don't want children of my own, but I've spent plenty of time with them, so if you have children that's fine by me - if a family is already there, then I'm very happy to join in with family life. However, while I would never absolutely say never, it seems a bit late to feel inclined to start having children of my own now.

Lastly, it's fair to say that if you want somebody who is into Big Brother, fast cars & celebrity gossip, or who goes to Ikea as a hobby rather than an occasional necessity, you may find I'm not what you're looking for. Sometimes a few of the things you don't like speak volumes.

About his ideal match

The people I get on with well tend to be quite informal and fairly lively, with a bit of appetite for life, although also reflective.They like to consider and think about the world around them, are usually fairly vivacious and enjoy being with friends. Maybe someone who sees life through a slightly different lens - not rooted immovably in the conventional.

That doesn't mean people who are always the life and soul of the party, but if someone is towards the extreme end of quiet and retiring, we may be a little too different.

Somebody who is fairly easygoing, though thoughtful, able to laugh at small things or engage with life's more important issues. Somebody who can be both energetic or able to relax, to take it easy or throw themselves into things, depending on the situation. A person who is adventurous, fun and reasonably down to earth.

All in all - and you've probably felt this yourself as you plough through writing your profile - chemistry, some similar values and finding that we "get" & understand each other are far more important then choosing identical items from superficial picklists about what food & music we like.
