In His Own Words

About him

Hello there! I am verbose, loyal, compassionate and thoughtful. And verbose. Following a few decidedly careless owners, I seek someone reliable. I've met a few admirable people in recent years, but no-one yet to share a life with. And I am nowhere near as humourless as that intro instantly makes me sound. I like to think of myself as just averagely humourless, with flashes of manic hysteria.

Professionally, I have wandered into self-employment after my PhD (2012). I am setting up online businesses in editorial services and academic witterings.

One way or another I have been involved in higher education for thirty years, and I am passionate about it both constitutionally and academically. For some reason I am presently approaching yet another degree. I work from home, building my self-employed projects.

I own my house, which is bursting with books, music and films. (It used to have cats as well, but over time they went away and it would have been unkind to get more because I started travelling a lot.) This is my work, turning interest into profitable activity. When time allows, I do things like refurbishing computers. I've built my own PCs for about twenty years, and I'm interested in robotics. For a humanities guy, I'm something of an Ubergeek.

I sometimes teach film at universities, and I am working on writing several books: another thread of my absurdly multidimensional business plan!

I'm athletic. Living for over twenty years in a town built for driving, I still resolutely cycle everywhere and I have twice done the London-to-Brighton ride for the British Heart Foundation. I want to get back to windsurfing, having lapsed for a few years. I have recently reignited my interest in tabletop games, of which I have a large collection.

Otherwise I spend my time struggling to keep these penguins under control, and trying to work out how to get out of Narnia without the giant pixies detecting the sound of my tractor.

About his ideal match

I am looking for someone to mingle lives with. For the right person, I am in a position to move to pretty much wherever such mingling should occur.

You will, I hope, be intelligent and funny, self-possessed and compassionate. The ability to navigate smoothly between 6Music and Radio 4 might aid you in not killing me.

Perhaps we already have activities and pastimes in common, but in any case I would like to discover your interests and share mine with you.

Liveliness is important, in a balance between spontaneity and reliability. I have found myself unhappy dealing with someone organised to the point of rigidity, or with someone unpredictable to a degree that is simply inconsiderate. There must be something flexible but also responsible in between!

It would be instantly convenient if you enjoy eating out and things like a variety of concerts, museums and films. On the other hand it would also be splendid if you could add interesting new dimensions to my own activities. Nights out sharing new stuff, and nights in sharing old stuff, are both good.

I'm not a snob about presentation, although I am drawn to women who present with some degree of forethought. Shabby-casual can be charming. Wino chic is not. Serious polish is positively delightful in a lady who enjoys doing it, but not any sort of dealbreaker for me if it's not your thing. Be who you are.

More than anything else I am still seeking someone with emotional substance and courage. I've been looking for a while, but haven't given up. I am not stupid enough to demand a lack of 'baggage': if you can get to this age with no baggage then you probably haven't been doing enough. I want to share support, joy and discovery with someone genuinely brave enough to be equally honest and steadfast.
