In His Own Words

About him

After 44 years of happy married life,I am lost without a female companion to look after and share with. Friends would describe me as very presentable, always good humoured and an asset to the dancing clubs I belong to.I love sequence/ballroom dancing and would be very willing to teach the steps to a partner who has enthusiasm and a basic sense of rhythm, if this should be necessary. I have a house with a large garden, and enjoy DIY in this garden and round the house.I have a campervan which is fun for day trips. On longer trips I usually go with friends anywhere between Scotland and Southern France. I have also taken it to Dance Weekends, and Jazz festivals. Each year I have been to India(goa and Mumbai) for a holiday where as well as relaxing on the beaches, shopping, eating etc. I have supported a couple of poor families by improving their homes, and financially. In return they have often cooked for me. I have also sponsored a little girl in a childrens' home. I regard life as a bowl of cherries, pick the best ones and make the most of it. We are only here once! I am a born optimist and friends say I act and look younger than my years. I am not a keep fit enthusiast but nevertheless am very healthy ..... I havn't seen a doctor since about 1960, hence my "handle" Luckyjohn ... I know when I am well-off! I don't take life too seriously, generally I aim to make a good job of what I am doing, but if it is rather less than perfect, but satisfactory, then move on. I have a very practical approach to life, and friends regard me as very adaptable. It is very rare for me to meet someone I cannot get on with. I would like a partner to have the same attitude, to be curious, try anything new, but if it does't work out, try something else and above all don't worry about it. I look forward to happy times again..

About his ideal match

My ideal match would be intelligent, of independent mind, and interested in current affairs(but not football!, or be too Left Wing politically). She should be active,willing to try new things and ideas, and enjoy each day for what it is... no worries. I would like her to have good dress sense (I enjoy shopping for clothes),to like cooking, conversation, walks, all the usual simple things,and of course enjoy her partner's company. Ballroom or sequence dancing is essential to me, so she should be able to dance or alternatively if she is enthusiastic and has a sense of rhythm I could teach her. This is the source of an endless number of enjoyable and romantic evenings, weekends. She does't have to be good at it, enthusiasm is all that is necessary, the rest will follow. I have mentioned earlier my other interests, namely the campervan and trips to india. I am certain that provided she is adaptable she would be find these activities quite fascinating. What would a typical ideal summer's day be like? I would suggest either pottering about in the garden or house, or a day out with friends, maybe relaxing in the garden with a drink, cooking something interesting for dinner,and going out for the evening to friends or a dance. I am looking for a close loving relationship, where we would have complete trust in one another, and be very sensitive to one anothers needs.
