In His Own Words

About him

... many years from now..... Honestly I've got a head of hair that most 70-year-olds would love to call their own, and my physical condition is also exceptional for someone my age. I frequently still regularly walk 10 miles or so, in fact last weekend I managed over 15 miles over the moor.
Working as a translator, theoretically I can work from anywhere with an Internet connection. I love intelligent conversation, Sudoku and crosswords, photography, a good book and good music, a glass of wine or a pint of beer. I have been active as a volunteer in the last couple of years, helping a number of people (even older than myself) with their shopping. I find the experience very rewarding and feel incredibly lucky to still be able to live the active life I lead.
Money has never been my prime interest in life, in fact I think it is the source of many of the world's problems today. I am convinced that money cannot buy health and happiness. I have always enjoyed the work I was doing and I still get a kick out of it when my clients express their satisfaction and gratitude. Otherwise, the things that give me most pleasure in life cost nothing or very little. I have 4 wonderful children, became a grandfather for the first time about three years ago and my second granddaughter was born in November 2014.
I like making other people laugh or at least smile - I love plays on words and seeing the absurdly funny side of everyday life. And, of course, I am quite prepared to laugh at myself, which is just as well, because I'm inclined to do some silly senior things from time to time. One other thing: having being single for more than half my adult life, I am quite capable of doing my own washing, my own ironing and cooking my own meals. My Cottage Pie is highly recommended (-:

About his ideal match

An attractive, intelligent woman with a good sense of humour who has interests of her own and who, like me, requires space of her own. But on the other hand, someone who occasionally needs a shoulder to lean on and is also prepared to offer one. Someone with old-fashioned values, for whom simple things are more important than money. Probably an outdoor type who likes walking or cycling, sports like tennis or golf.
Someone whose main objective in life is not simply to retire - but who wants to continue to learn, to meet new people, to see new places or, as I am doing at the moment, rediscover old ones. In other words, someone who believes that maintaining physical and mental fitness is the best recipe for avoiding dementia and enjoying a long and fulfilling life.
