In His Own Words

About him

Honest, clever, recently divorced man who worked for the International Herald Tribune/ International New York Times for 31+ years, but I took, because I could afford to, early retirement (on 75% of my old salary). Seeks any or all of the following: an open-minded lady for company, friendship and a walk wherever the path leads. Race, creed, religion or want of it is entirely unimportant. I live in Hove with a view of the sea, but am somewhat lonely. A beautiful view can only take one so far. Talking of which, in my job - Worldwide Research Director - I travelled the planet many times over, but have never crossed the Atlantic by sea, something I intend to rectify soon, but ideally not alone.
It is somewhat cliched to say I am thought if as amusing, but that is the truth. I read and write a great deal (I really must heavily edit the 95,000 word novel I have been working on for ten years) as well as poetry. My life is full of hopes boarded by walled boundaries, the latter not necessarily of my creation nor physical capabilities related. I prefer to be driven by what I can do and not what I can't do. So any lady who can assist me, and I she, in living a fuller life would be greatly appreciated and respected. While my body is just passed 61 years old I don't feel my mind or outlook on life is. And, my MS (did I mention this?) in not a handicap that excludes 95+% of "normal" activities (I don't count skateboarding on an ice rink as "normal" though you might, but would be happy to watch). To add a touch of Browning I would say, "A man's reach must exceed his grasp or what's a heaven for?" Or if you don't believe there is a heaven then maybe "I don't want to die wondering" may be more apposite. FYI, all my photos on this site were taken on July 4th 2016 so I haven't had chance to change much; I still have all my own teeth and haven't been afflicted by a sudden bout of alopecia. Oh, I am told that men often add a few inches to their hight, especially short men. I haven't, I really am a humble 5' 6".

About his ideal match

A humorous, kind, honest and open-minded lady. A fondness or passion for books, the arts and music would always help. As the the great outdoors, I can go on short walks unaided; a long ones via mobility buggy. I am a strong swimmer still and take exercise regularly. I am a good, empathetic listener though rarely short of words of my own. Being open-minded, I have no deal breakers save not getting involved with a wedded lady whose marriage is still viable. I believe laughter is a good bedrock for any relationship. So if we could make each other laugh this would be a good start.
