In His Own Words

About him

Welsh origins, though I haven't lived there since my childhood. I also spent many years in Egypt as a child. Since then, I have lived mainly on the south coast - Plymouth, the New Forest, Chichester and now back to the New Forest area.

I'm calm and reliable; well educated, intelligent, and I speaks proper like. Young at heart, optimistic, practical, tolerant, pragmatic, easy going, non-confrontational, caring and I don't take myself too seriously.

I value loyalty, a positive outlook, tolerance, a sense of fun/humour and spontaneity. I do love doing things on the spur of the moment - like spontaneous weekends away. One of my favourite tv programmes at the moment is Rick Stein's Weekend breaks in Europe. I'd love to find someone to share that type of adventure - sampling the local cuisine and culture.

Happy in my own company but looking for new friends and a soul mate, if the chemistry is there, to share life's ups and downs. Life is richer when shared, but personal space is important to me too. I am looking for someone to spend quality time with - and weekend breaks away and holidays abroad. Though I don't rule it out, I'm not sure I would want to live 24/7 with a new partner - after living on my own for fourteen years I have grown used to the freedom and space it affords. Lets allow a relationship to develop at its own pace and see where it takes us.

I have spent my career at sea, mostly laying and repairing communication cables, and latterly I have been driving a ferry across to the Isle of Wight, which was fun and not too taxing (most of the time anyway). I have recently retired and at the moment my time is mostly taken up with restoring a 23' motor launch which I keep at Wareham. I also enjoy tinkering with classic cars. I occasionally do a bit of consultancy work offshore for the cable industry.

I enjoy travelling, the outdoors, walking and have discovered a new interest in gardening since moving back to Ringwood. I also enjoy eating out, especially in cosy pubs next to a log fire.

About his ideal match

A bright, bubbly, intelligent and feminine lady who would complement my own calm and quieter personality. Ideally, someone who is vivacious and loves travelling and is spontaneous, easy going, warm, tactile and caring. Someone who accepts our differences as well as valuing our similar traits and qualities.

A likeminded lady who is happy in her own skin and values her own space and wants to maintain some independence within a loving and caring relationship.
Is that too much to ask for?

Chemistry is very important, so I don't place too much importance on a list of 'desirable' attributes. If that indefinable spark is there....the relationship will grow and blossom.

I am looking for friendship initially. If things develop romantically, that would be great but I am not looking for short term flings. Nor am I looking for a cook and housekeeper. I'm quite domesticated and quite good at ironing shirts!

I believe one can glean much about a person's personality from a photograph, so at least one close up photo is essential please.
