In His Own Words

About him

Right ... I'm off. Travelling again. Back in June, so I'm off radar till then - ash allowing.

New year, new decade, new life. It's time for a fresh start. I joined this site last year after finding myself single - and discovered I wasn't ready for dating. It was far too nerve-wracking after so long out of it. But that was then. Now, a bit older and, hopefully, wiser, I'm ready to begin again. So here goes ...

I'm 47, have most of my own teeth, hair and marbles. I've got a job in the media that I enjoy, but which means I work at odd hours and on some weekends. I'm single, educated, solvent, have my own house and car. I'd describe myself as honest, loyal and shy, which sounds a bit boring, so underneath is an extrovert party animal that occasionally gets out when I'm with people I like.

What I am not is Bob the Bloke. I don't spend weekends grouting the carburettor or dahn the pub. If I go out I prefer to do memorable things occasionally (a gourmet meal, a good night of live comedy, a half-decent band) rather than run-of the mill things frequently. I also treasure quiet time in just recharging my batteries. In summer I play cricket, go fishing (sorry ...) or spend weekends with friends - most of whom are couples ...

And I travel. I was born overseas and need to feel sand in my shoes regularly. Beaches, forests, cities, coral reefs, deserts - it doesn't matter which as long as I'm warm and the drinks are cold. But last month, I spent a blue-sky day walking an achingly beautiful beach in Australia, and didn't see another person; and instead of revelling in the freedom, I found myself thinking how much better it would have been to have shared the moment with someone special.

As befits a traveller, I come with baggage. I'm nervous when meeting people. I have two grown-up children studying at university up north. I became a widower a year ago. But I'm ready for life - my new life, whatever form it takes - and I look forward to hearing from you if this strikes a chord.

About his ideal match

My ideal match: it's not like ordering a sofa or a cocktail or a pizza. I'll leave physical attributes, employment and social status out of this because, for me, attraction works in a different way. I'm not going to make the mistakes I made last year and rush into relationships like a kid in a sweetshop. I believe in chemistry, but for me, chemicals can take a while to smoulder into flame.

So, most of all, you'll be happy with who and what you are, and your mojito glass will definitely be half full. You'll be independent, honest, proud of yourself - without being pushy. You'll be patient, and sensitive to my personal circumstances, which may mean it'll take a little time and a degree of trust before I'm ready to open myself to friends/children/pets (although I'm a pushover for cats) . You'll enjoy some of the things that I do, especially the travel bit. You'll be, like me, an incurable romantic who likes champagne and sunsets ...

You see: this is ridiculous. Most of us, in this age group anyway, are on this site not because our lives are so picture perfect, but because wheels have fallen off somewhere. All I really want is a real warm human bean.
