In His Own Words

About him

So here are a few things that tickle my fancy.....cycling, cooking (especially deserts), learning more about photography, making bowls, painting, Lucian Freud, green smoothies, waking up to snow, cake cafes with doilies, bed and breakfasts in unknown places, exploring London, LBC radio (Nick Abbot is king), the Design Museum and Pringles.Maybe one reason you are here is because all your friends seem to have settled down and seem to be married with kids...

Here's what my good friend Claudia said about me:

Gareth is a pain to cook for: he's vegetarian and has roughly 735 or so food allergies [I'm guessing here]. Nuts, shellfish, truffle oil (probably), marzipan....you name it, he's probably allergic to it.

But you know what? Don't worry about that - just let him do the cooking! (his brownies are LEGENDARY!)
Because really, this man is a find and why Gareth is still on the market is quite frankly a complete mystery to me.

Who else do you know is kind, funny, someone you can absolutely rely on AND neither a complete player, married off or gay? Exactly.

You will like this man if you have an equally artistic streak - Gareth loves going to museums & galleries and is really rather excellent at creating things himself, whether it's hand carved wooden bowls, amazing paintings or middle class supermarket designs (he's an architect). If you can't find the sumac next time you go shopping, you know who to blame.

He doesn't push himself in the foreground so if you're looking for a party animal who loves being the centre of attention, Gareth is not your man. Unless you get him to dress up for a 'pimps and prostitutes' fancy dress party that is...

He deserves someone who is utterly lovely and who appreciates his wit. The catch? He likes Nick Cave. But then - nobody is perfect.:

About his ideal match

Ideally looking for a like-minded girl, who is understanding, compassionate, enthusiastic, maybe has some interesting hobbies, likes to go to exhibitions, try new eateries, likes to cook (without sounding sexist). You don't necessarily have to have travelled the world, look like a supermodel, or have made a fortune trading gold.
I am happy to chat and am looking for friends as much as hoping to develop something more meaningful.
Dislikes: people who try to yawn and talk at the same time and theatrical sneezing.
