In His Own Words

About him

Hi there!

People seem to think I'm a kindly soul. I hope that I am generous, loyal, reliable and friendly. I have a fine line in self-deprecation (plenty of material there).

Professionally I worked for many years in state education before finally seeing sense and jumping ship - literally ... working as a sailing instructor and freelance writer (two books published). I have also done volunteer work in healthcare.

I lived most of my adult life in Northumberland and France and on a cold winter's day the sunny climes further south do beckon ....
For the moment I live on a boat in the Thames Estuary which is a relaxing antidote to modern life - even when it is windy and wet! Having flown solo day and night I am about to embark on what I hope will be the final part of the course leading to my full license. Winter flying is far more enjoyable with better visibility and gorgeous views - but you need the woollen socks! I enjoy my motorcycle although that is definitely for the sunny days of autumn and spring. I also enjoy fell walking when the opportunity arises.

I like all music genres although probably lean towards jazz, sixties rock and classical. I read far too many technical books but try to read something lighter when I have the time - especially historical novels set in Roman Britain.

Would love to find a soulmate but happy to start with email and maybe move on to coffee and chat. You never know!

About his ideal match

The qualities that would most appeal to me in a partner or friend would be kindness, honesty, loyalty, tolerance and open-mindedness. I would also hope that we would have a shared sense of humour and spirit of adventure matched with mental and physical toughness to counter the vicissitudes of life.

I would like to meet someone who enjoys travel and exploring remote regions and not necessarily in five-star comfort. I would hope to find a partner who would share my love of sailing - ability to climb a mast in a howling gale would be helpful (but not a deal-breaker)! Essentially I would like to meet someone who enjoys the challenges of life.

I would hope that my partner would introduce me to her own interests so that we can mutually enjoy a range of activities rather than just a one-sided approach where one partner drives the social aspect of life.

While I would love to find a soulmate I am in no rush. Would be quite happy to exchange emails and then maybe meet up for a chat and take it from there.

Finally, I hope you find who you are looking for - even if it is not me.
