In His Own Words

About him

Amicably divorced 12 months after long-term marriage producing 1 child who's flown nest. Classic case of marrying young, raising family, climbing the proverbial greasy career pole, then realising your aspirations no longer match (such a cliche!).

So new - a comparative virgin even - to online dating... please be gentle :)

Main interests lie in physical and intellectual development rather than, say, spiritual or professional. This translates into gym and nutrition, and reading and rigorous debate respectively. I'm regularly told I look far younger than my 46 years so I guess it's worth the investment in time, sweat and the occasional blood donation (joking)!

Also a massive fan of movies, sport & weekend breaks, and very partial to theatre & live music/sporting events when I have someone of similar interest & free of responsibilities to accompany me.

Careerwise, I've elected to exit the high-pressure & long hours of corporate world after 20 years in favour of the not-for-profit sector in order to "give something back" & reclaim some time for myself.

Financially solvent, having spent all I earnt giving my family the best & then leaving the marital home to my wife who has no qualifications or work experience, so effectively we're both starting from scratch. Whether that makes me a nice guy or a gullible idiot depends on your perspective, but I'm comfortable with it.

While enjoying an extensive, primarily male friend network, I miss & am now ready for female company for romance, adventure, passion & sharing the next stage of life's journey having resolved my previous personal & professional challenges.

Looking for good company, good conversation, a good laugh & positive outlook more than anything. If you have good looks & similar interests, that would be a bonus. However, beyond the aforementioned essentials, my mind is genuinely open & willing to see what happens.

Look forward to hearing from & all about you.

About his ideal match

It would seem sensible to meet someone of similar profile to myself, ie:

Healthy living - you're probably active whether you prefer a specific sport, the gym, yoga/martial arts - and you recognise you are what you eat, although you enjoy indulging a vice (mine's chocolate!). Most importantly, you take responsibility for your own welfare.

Interests - cinema, theatre, arts/music events, good food, good conversation, weekend breaks.

Financially independent - ideally pursuing a job/career which you find personally rewarding and stimulating, not just a means. That said, I'm a bit old fashioned when it comes to paying on dates and providing :)

In terms of looks, if I had to state a preference, I profess a predilection for medium height, darker haired/skinned women (Latino/Asian/Indian/MIddle-Eastern) and for pronounced feminine curves (even if that means a few extra pounds!). However, looks are nothing but admirable if they're not accompanied by an articulate and enquiring mind, keen sense of humour and adventure, and general joie de vivre.
