I lost my wife-best friend over four years ago and although I lead an active life I miss female companionship - we shared most of our interests. I am independent, self sufficient and have varied interests such as walking, cycling, dancing, table tennis, DIY, photography, gardening, politics, society some TV, computing, etc. I have travelled widely though not so much since losing my wife. I go away for weekend breaks occasionally, usually for dancing. I am an optimist by nature and consequently basically a happy person living in a sad world. I hope to meet a pleasant woman who is reasonably fit and active with a nice nature who is making the best out of life and who lives within reasonable distance - maybe a woman who would also like to share some time with someone of the opposite sex for companionship and so fill a gap in her life. Please message me if interested - I always reply to messages.
What do you like most about where you currently live?
I like my home very much (probably because I designed and built most of it)and I like living in a coastal area.
What do you enjoy most about your current job?
I am no longer employed but I keep myself busy with various projects that I have set myself
What are your favourite leisure activities?
Walking, cycling, table tennis, dancing (to R&R/Trad), computing. I did like holidaying but not now that I am alone.
Where in the world are your favourite places?
I am quite happy with where I live but as an ex-merchant seaman I very much liked New Zealand and British Columbia (Canada) Oh and Norway is beautiful
Where in the world would you love to visit?
Driving from Adelaide to Darwin would be nice - or taking a train across Russia to the far east
What would you do on an ideal date?
Not sure about that - I guess I would go along with whoever I was meeting with
What are you looking for in a partner?
A woman with a nice-nature who I would find attractive and who is fit and active for her age.
What makes a good relationship?
compatability, mutual attraction, honesty and trust
What makes you laugh?
Sorry but very few of today's comedians - my sense of humour is with the older school - Porridge, Fools and Horses etc
What music do you like?
R&R - Traditional jazz - C&W - some classical
What has been the highlight of your life so far?
Having lived with lovely people
What are you looking forward to in the future?
Regaining some of the happiness lost when my wife left me
Am I not too old to be seeking a companionship or relationship?
No I don't think so because I am, at this point in time, fit, active and enjoying life (as much as one can when there is so much unhappiness around). The reality is that no one knows what the next day will bring - one has to live for the now and anticipate the future in the knowledge that it will bring change - sometimes for the best, and sometimes not. So I live in hope that someone nice will come my way and we will have the opportunity of spending some enjoyable years together.
