In His Own Words

About him

If I'm honest I'm probably better at 'intelligent and interesting' than 'cool and fun' in the party sense. For me, a chat over a drink or a cup of tea with a friend or two is generally more rewarding than a large social gathering. I'm far more interested in communication and humour than glitz and formality.
I'm quite a generalist, interested in the natural world, (especially wildlife), technology, business, history and people. I am interested in the arts as an expression of ideas and feelings but not as something to be endlessly collected or viewed. So I connect best with books, film, photography and some music - the most emotive for me is the best of folk. Show of Hands are a favourite band. I'm active but not sporty and have no real interest in watching it. New activities that I'd consider taking up might include singing (if I can?!), and writing.
My rustic tones belie my academic background, perhaps because I've spent most of my life working with my hands, building and refurbishing houses. In many ways, I'm now 'sitting pretty' and could happily pair up with someone retired or heading that way. But of course many are still working and I could consider another selfbuild.
I'm more or less free to do whatever I want in life, just need the right person to share it with. I've been in Somerset most of my life and might enjoy a move seaward. I'd like to travel again - campervan or self catering rather than fancy hotels.
The elusive aspect to all of this is the spark, the right chemistry. I'm not sure what the recipe is for that but possibly someone not too similar to myself, so I'm very open-minded as to whom, I might get on with. A good sense of humour and a mischievous streak would be a plus.
I've got two daughters in their twenties, (mostly living away) but grandchildren look to be some way off.
If you think we might be on the same wavelength I'd like to hear from you.

About his ideal match

I'm looking for someone with a lively interest in the world around them but not too many airs and graces. So, someone, who is happy to explore and discover, whether that be in country, city or places of interest. My own bias is toward wild places but these days not in a knee-testing way.
Ideally I'm looking for someone who isn't working full-time or might move in that direction - though I appreciate people don't want to burn their bridges.
Driving a must, not for any sinister reason but on long journeys it is safer shared.
At the risk of sounding 'dogmatic', (oh dear!), K9s are a lifestyle I'd prefer to avoid, so a bit of a deal-breaker
Messaging can soon build up false expectations and meeting is more fun than typing, so I think that is the way to go. That said, I don't think a first meet is a date, so commitment might come some time later.
