In His Own Words

About him

I am soooooo bored and so very frustrated by this ******* virus! Depressed by having to put life on hold and just wanting to get in the car drive to Italy for some FUN!!!!

Enough of my rant! I am normal, well almost! I live in a small village in the Cotswolds and enjoy country life: dogs, horses, pubs, mud, etc. but I do also enjoy city pleasures: the theatre, opera, cinema and restaurants.

I like to think I'm romantic. I am certainly very sociable, easy going, kind, loving, honest, and loyal (well I had to say all that didn’t I but I am really).

I love cooking and entertaining and would be happy to either cook for you or with you!! I also enjoy family life - so more than happy if you have a large family who regularly appear for Sunday lunch.

I’m no gym bunny (at my age ha ha what a thought!!!) but I do go to the gym a couple of times a week (COVID update- I did until they closed in March and still haven't reopened).

And don’t expect Aidan Turner looks – my body is the worn out wreckage of 72 years of fun with all the damage you might expect that has inflicted – I really know how to get you interested don’t I! But don't be put off, I still enjoy, shall we say, the more fundamental of life's interests!

I like travel and my favourite holiday destination has to be Italy for the sunshine, language, food, wine and people but France comes a close second. I love driving there and enjoying stops en-route to explore.

And most importantly I am completely free of emotional baggage.

About his ideal match

So much about me. What am I looking for?

Well what I am NOT looking for is:
a granny
a housekeeper
a controller
a carer
a banker

I'd rather live alone than have any of the above....................

I would love a woman who is completely open, laughs and who is able to become my best friend. Somebody to cuddle in bed at the end of the day, chatting about “stuff” and with us both knowing that there is nowhere in the world we would rather be……………………………….

A lively woman with whom I can share and enjoy life to the full. Laughter is vital so she’ll need to be both fun and funny (dry sense of humour?), impish and probably a bit of a tease and flirt. Feminine and stylish would be a massive bonus. She'll need to appreciate being loved, cherished, and (occasionally) spoilt.

But nobody is perfect so let's just meet and see. If we find a glimmer of chemistry then maybe we can grow it in to a bubbling cauldron of passion............

Feed the cat, phone your mum, pour yourself a large glass of wine, curl up with your iPad and get in touch.................I need you NOW! xx

What His Friends Say

Katharine said...

What an honour to be invited to describe such a great guy!

I have spent much time with Martin over the past couple of years and although our friendship is platonic (sadly, I'm too young!) I can certainly see the appeal he has to women. A great sense of humour (gives as good as he gets!), always up for a dog walk, and a great comfort and up-lifter when times are tough. A fantastic cook and extremely generous host, he has the ability to throw something delicious together at the drop of a hat and, produce a gourmet dinner party (with wonderful surprises) for all his friends. Yup! He just loves cooking....!

He understands women, which is a rare gift! A great listener, thoughtful and goes out of his way to support his friends; always at the ready with an electric drill or that last minute lift to the station.

I've just seen that he's a Leo - which explains some of the interesting, often amusingly heated and controversial, debates we've had, as well as his strength. Don't be put off by his 'Liberal' tendencies - I'm sure they're just to wind up his friends!

One of Martin's most touching attributes is the relationship he has with his daughter, who is not only a credit to him; it's indicative of his lovely nature. He's a fabulous and devoted father and personally, I think this says a lot about a man. I have no doubt that if the right woman came into his life, he'd pour loyalty, love and time into the relationship.

If you are looking for an honest, loyal, fun, spontaneous and adoring man, and love a mixture of culture and country pursuits, AND are worthy of his friendship and love, then get in contact with him and see for yourself what a great guy he is.
