In His Own Words

About him

I am a quiet individual. A sensitive soul, who perhaps has too much time to think of things gone by. I am active, and have a young outlook on life. I enjoy local walks on a canal or disused railway track, and am fascinated by military history, and the stories of the hardship and sacrifice during ( mostly, the Second World War ) My father , born 1912, was actually a Bevan Boy. during the war. I am self sufficient in my emotions, but must admit I would like to find that special girl, with which to share life's experiences, trips out, days out , perhaps even a holiday house together ( I love the UK I have not been in Europe since the year 2001 ) - a play or Musical even - being close without owning each other. You'd retain your independence, as would I, just coming together twice a week ( or more if required, of course ) for long philosophical talks, or more likely getting to know each other - that's always the fun part. I was born in 1955, I went to a Grammar School, and have had a fun filled working life until I retired. ( Bit of irony there ) There is a phrase of " you don't stop working when you get old - you get old when you stop working ". I have been a widower for more than a year, a trying and arduous time, and I have a house , and a garden that is becoming a wilderness. I have grown up kids with their own lives, but I don't want to be hanging on to them. I am a grandfather, also. I am polite, considerate, loving and gentle. Is there a lady out there who'd like to give me a whirl ? There would be no confrontation with me in your life, and the only gaslighting would be striking a match for the cooker in the Cotswolds ( or Yorkshire Coast, or the Lincolnshire Wolds, or The Weald - you know what I mean )
I am seriously a quiet individual - no Robert Redford I will tell you now, but if you like your hair being brushed, or your feet being massaged, then I'm the chap for you. I do not do sport, and do not chose my mates and a day at the football, over an interesting lady.

About his ideal match

Well, where do I start on this?
I am looking for a girl with a bit of life in her. I don't mind grey hair, nor laughter lines - experience of life is always a good thing.
Don't mind if you're widowed, divorced, a Grandmother even, or never been married ( I dislike the word Spinster ) but I would draw the line at horns and cloven hooves !! I will say that I am an ordinary chap, with a good sense of humour. I'd like the lady to have a character of her own, along with a laugh that could crack ice. I would like her to have a bit of sass and sexyness ( is that even a word ?) What Musicals would she like ? How about West Side Story, Evita and Anything Goes ? ( That's the Musical, not a critique upon the Permissive Society - is that still around, or was that a 60's thing ?) Has she seen the play " The Woman in Black" on stage, or " 2:22" ?
These are all a possibility, you know.....
