In His Own Words

About him

I am a mid-30s professional with a good career, a close and caring family, good friends and an active involvement in my local community. I am still looking for that special someone to add another dimension to my life.

I am interested in music, history, archaeology, philosophy, astronomy and culture and aspire to be a true Renaissance Man, although there is much of the Philistine in me that still needs cultivating.

Good fortune has allowed me to travel to many countries which are off the usual beaten track. My most recent journey was to Sudan to see the ruins of the culture of the 25th Egyptian dynasty. Friends and colleagues think I pick my destinations using the countries to avoid on the Foreign Office website and there may be an element of truth in this. I was once denied a visa! The hat reference relates to my travels, but that story is for another day... .

While I keep up to date with sports results, the statistics hold more interest for me than the games and events, although I enjoy watching athletics and tennis. I went to the World Student Games in 1991, the Manchester Commonwealth Games in 2002 and I'm taking my nephew and niece to the Paralympics in 2012 (our Olympic 2012 application was unsuccessful... !).

In an age where people are increasingly insular, apathetic and motivated only by single issues, I am passionate about pluralism. I am fascinated by politics, but not by any individual political party, and I still believe that the European Union has much to offer the UK (and that the UK has much to offer the EU).

Faith is an important part of my life, although from a liberal, inquisitive Christian perspective. I am not dogmatic nor closed to different views or alternative beliefs.

I strongly believe that life is a journey where the travelling is often more exciting than reaching the safety of the destination.

About his ideal match

Someone with a broad range of interests who wants to travel on the journey through life with me, enjoying the travelling as much as the destinations. An interest in history, archaeology, new cultures and countries which need a visa to enter is probably essential and a willingness to discuss political issues would be an advantage.

Happy to commit to a long term relationship with the right person.

Someone who enjoys discussions by a log fire in a country inn, dinners in good restaurants, lunches in coffee shops and cafes and trips to the theatre as their preferred way to spend a date. Clubs and busy pubs are not my thing.

That special person who will add another dimension to my life.
