In His Own Words

About him

This is all pretty new to me - find it a little difficult to write about myself, so am a little apprehensive.
Have lived and travelled overseas for a good part of my life. Now looking for friendship/companionship - with the hope that it might develop into something longer lasting and deeper. I lead a pretty contented life - always try to count my blessings: good health, comfortable house, good friends, relaxed lifestyle. And yet.........think life would be even better if it were shared with someone special. Someone to share my likes and dislikes; perhaps someone to hold hands with on long walks , and to cuddle up with on the sofa.
Before I took early retirement, my work took me all over the world. I still love to travel, but now it is all for fun.
You'll find me (I believe) to be kind, compassionate, honest and caring, with a good sense of humour. Laughter is important for a happy life. I keep myself fit and active, and look after myself. I like playing golf and racquet sports, although I am not particularly good at any of them. But I always try hard!
I like pretty much all kinds of music - classical, rock, pop etc. There are 4,500 tunes on my i-pod! Like to keep up with current affairs. I am on a steep learning curve about gardening, having moved to a house with a garden full of plants and shrubs. But I enjoy pottering around in the garden, trying to keep everything under control. And I love the fresh air.
I think of myself as pretty tactile, and am in touch with my emotional side. Thining and greying on top, but think of myself as a 30 something in a 50 something 's body!

I am looking for someone who can relate to much of the above, who shares similar interests, and who likes the idea of sharing time with someone who wil do his very best to make them happy. If you think you may be that somebody......................why not let me know?

PS I put favourite clothing as shorts and T shirt. That's because I wore a suit most of my working life. I do scrub up pretty well, when neccessary!

About his ideal match

................someone that can relate to the description of me, and who, ideally shares at least some of my interests. Being kind, honest, and caring would be a very good start, as would an interest in travel. A good sense of humour is pretty essential in all relationships I think. I like to make people laugh! I also like to be outdoors as much as I can, and like to feep fit and healthy. I hope that my match would think along the same lines. Similarly, they would have a positive outlook on life. I believe that any positive relationship is built on the bedrock of friendship, and shared interests and values I hope that my match could identify with that. And from friendship, hopefully a deeper relationship can develop. And it all kicks off by starting to get to know each other over a nice coffee!
