In His Own Words

About him

People say they find my personality "challenging". I think that this is because I do not always accept them at face-value and tell them so at point of first contact if their views confront mine. If they can give a good, reasoned argument to support their stance, I'll accept that and "agree to disagree".
I have a sense of humour that wont get me on the "open mic" night at the Comedy Store but I've found that it has an ironic style that can diffuse awkward social situations.
I love the cinema, like the theatre, have given opera and ballet a go and am prepared to try anything new, once, in the pursuit of entertainment.
For intellectual stimulation I play bridge to a reasonable standard. For physical activities I like going for a" hard" walk in the nearby Peak District. My normal work routine keeps me fit not to need the dubious, preening, benefits of going to a gym.
If I'm in a group of strangers, I'll be the one who's quiet at the start but who is not afraid of lobbing in a verbal hand grenade if only to start people talking. I am considered a" typical " northerner and my bluntness can be awkward to deal with but I hope that it projects an honesty that puts shallow and pretentious people on their guard, knowing that I'm not one who is easily impressed.
I love food and enjoy cooking. I am always prepared to try new culinary experiences but will not go as far as "extreme cuisine". I can get as much pleasure out of a plate of "mezes" as a six course banquet.
My outlook on life is that I want to try new experiences and meet people who are similarly "up for it" and at the same time share a love of the things that give me pleasure.

About his ideal match

I'm looking for a smart, intelligent woman who has little time for prolonged "courtship rituals" because of life's general pressures and finds that they want to share the enjoyment that life can offer without the need, necessarily, for a lifetime commitment.
Sometimes I get a little tired of going to the cinema/theatre/ restaurant/ countryside on my own and not having someone to share the pleasures these activities give me.
Mostly I miss the simple stimulation of conversation with an intellectual equal.
So if you are a contestant for the title of "Cuprinol Queen", don't respond as I AM NOT YOUR TYPE.
Similarly, if you are looking to be the "candy" on the arm of someone you want to fund a flashy lifestyle, don't respond as I AM NOT YOUR TYPE.
Otherwise, I am pretty easygoing !!
