In His Own Words

About him

I like to think that I am open and loving, supportive of my family and a good and reliable friend. I particularly love spending time with my grand-daughters and taking them riding. Apart from the family I enjoy socialising with friends - having meals out, going for walks especially by the coast, going to galleries, seeing films and just hanging out discussing politics, spirituality, books and life in general.
I retired at the end of 2016 and have finally got used to not being busy all the time.Or at least not working all the time!
Apart from family and friends making art is my main interest - painting, photography, digital art - all my painting is abstract - attempting to capture feelings by following my instincts. It is quite a while since I have any momentum in this and am looking to produce more now.

About his ideal match

I don't have a specific list of qualities in mind - I think that mostly its down to personal chemistry and I am open to all sorts of different people.
I was on my own for a few years and then had a relationship last year. This has fired me up again and I am definitely ready to love and be loved. I miss the intimacy of closeness and look forward to sharing my life in all ways with someone I love to be with, who I find fascinating and with whom I have a continually changing conversation
