In His Own Words

About him

I don't have a photo for two reasons: I am a bit shy, and I manage my on-line exposure carefully. However, I have the usual number of features in the usual places, people flirt with me from time to time and rarely scream, so I am probably OK.

I am bright, honest, ethical and principled and these things matter to me.
I am also easy-going, humourous, supportive and gentle and I love literature, poetry and life. At times passionate, my past includes Science, medical research and Engineering on one hand and community, charitable and counselling things on the other hand, with odd bits in-between. Recently I have been working with the homeless. I also cared for some very unwell people. So if you are looking for a shallow social climber that is not me.

Many likes - music, theatre, art, literature, science, cycling, swimming, interesting conversation, candlelight and beautiful locations... especially if also learning something new. But I am lousy at sports and bored watching them. I love animals and cannot abide cruelty to them. Currently re-discovering some beautiful countryside by bicycle and I am dying to explore ruins on Crete sometime.

For fun - People, gentle parties, dinner parties, travelling, fixing things, helping people, volunteering. I like travel (not tourism), camping, picnics, learning. Happiest in the sun, sea, a water-meadow or the desert: Unhappiest in a city centre in mid-summer. More coast and 70s VW campervan than dinner jacket and pretentious restaurants, although I have done both. Sometimes witty, funny and thoughtful, but sometimes I do and say the daftest things and it is pot luck, really. I once set fire to a menu by trying to read it over a candle, for example. Some nasty motorcycle accidents I should not have survived, went around Africa in a truck and came back with Malaria. Did a professional massage course and then broke my wrist - the usual kind of stuff.

About his ideal match

Calm, warm, loving, caring, sensual, genuine, bright. Spicy and exciting is great, but on a calm foundation. Life is not a sit-com.

Intelligence, honesty and openness are vital. An enquiring mind.

My ideal rolls her sleeves and does things, looks lovely in candlelight and won't collapse if she sees a mouse. She is not a cardboard cut-out from a fashion chain and she doesn't spout tabloid opinions - she has her own, thoughtful ones. She is someone I could talk to about a variety of things, who challenges me, thinks for herself and doesn't pretend to be perfect. Being drop-dead gorgeous would do no harm either, but but it is not top of the list.
