I CANNOT see 'LIKES' so please message me
I have a main 'retirement' home in North Wales where I relocated to in December 2021 but still have a place in Lincoln so spend time at both places.
I, am easy-going and not pushy by nature and being new to the area have still to find a niche, things to do and someone to do them with.
I favour open spaces and the natural rather than the built environment, prefer the sea and usually holiday near it.
I'm not one for cinemas (too loud), theatres or crowds and favour scenic walks, a nice beach, people watching, a comfy chair - or a hands on project.
I like to relax a bit more than I used to but I'd still prefer not to stay at home each and every weekend with my feet up or weeding the garden. I need to get back to travel, holidays and places new and old.
I cared for a former partner for many years which gave me purpose in life and a holiday companion, and combined with a full time job I had no reason to look for anything else. Best laid plans left me purpose-less however as she passed away just after I retired. I no longer have any driving ambition, I've eased off and am looking for that peaceful niche, new friends; and if I'm fortunate enough, someone special.
A travel companion would be nice, someone who is adventurous but not overactive and perhaps someone special. Someone of similar age who is looking for the modest pleasures of home, travel & companionship, someone who routinely looks after herself without going over the top.
I am not a pet person outside of having used to have some fish in a pond that didn't seem to mind me going off on holidays
Taste in music, depends upon the mood but quiet works as well.
What do you like most about where you currently live?
The views, but alone my house is not a home.
What do you enjoy most about your current job?
I'm recently retired having spent many years in public service along with a smattering of manufacture, industry and countryside work. It was always a challenge and never enough time to get bored, always someone to help.
What are your favourite leisure activities?
A good book, travel & holidays. I like the open rather than the built environment, beside the sea by preference.
Where in the world are your favourite places?
I like the rugged English coastline and sandy beaches but travel further afield nowadays. The South of France, the Canaries, Egypt and Mexico are on my revisit list but I like new places so whilst I do repeat visits - they aren't regular.
Where in the world would you love to visit?
The Maldives, New Zealand, Austria, Norway.
What would you do on an ideal date?
A stroll on the beach and a nice meal, watch the sun set or better still stay up to watch it rise.
What are you looking for in a partner?
Someone who is caring and wants to be cared for.
What makes a good relationship?
Stability without boredom; creating opportunity and occasion for variety and spice.
What makes you laugh?
The same as most people - mishaps, kids antics, a good cleanish comedy and joke.
What music do you like?
Most anything - 'Enya' can suit most moods played loudly or softly but I'm not averse to the Black Eyed Peas or Beathovens Fifth.
What has been the highlight of your life so far?
Seeing that my grown up kids are settled and happy and them telling me that they now know that whilst I wasn't the perfect father, that I wasn't the bad guy that was painted thirty years ago.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
A happy life and rest of life partnership
