In His Own Words

About him

I do not take myself too seriously and I can laugh at myself, and often do.Love the mountains and the coast and generally being outdoors but also appreciate what cities have to offer such as diversity and culture and in many cases some fine architecture and urban design . Unfortunately it looks as if European city breaks may be on hold for some time. I am concerned about the environment and the threats from climate change, and yes, I am aware of the contribution of short haul flights towards the increase of carbon in the atmosphere. I have opinions but not opinionated,can do all the professional work stuff and can do it well,but love the smell and scents of spring,the colours of autumn and the freshness of winters,the sounds of the children laughing in my street and the adjacent park,the lyrics and chords of my favourite music ( I still go to live gigs but not stadium shows ), world drama and world music, the warmth and spontaneity of good company,the good wine and food that sometimes accompanies this,the language imagery and characterisation of good literature,the sparkle in my childrens eyes when I know we have really connected, enjoyment from music ,a few beers with my mates,the realisation that I have achieved something purposeful,a cold beer when I have exercised, the anticipation in a departure lounge,the freshness after a training session .(I do the gym thing but am not obsessive) the anticipation when/if I meet that someone. Now will have te re- think future activities as a result of covid=719.Miss the Hay festival; now that Cardiff is in lockdown I am beginning to miss many things ! The photos include the covid beard.

About his ideal match

Warmth,honesty,humour,tolerance,compassi on ,passion,easy manners,someone who is not a couch potato {well,not all the time} - excepting lying in bed reading weekend papers or a good novel .Not an out and out clubber.I seem to be describing by exception! A spark and a chemistry will define and a sense of humour. Although I may appear very laid-back, this is an SOS as I search out my soulmate !
