I retired at 50, in Nov 2008. I am an active golfer, this being my main hobby. I like to keep myself in reasonable shape - walking the fairways & riding my bike helps this. I spend the winter months in Spain to enable me to continue on with my pastimes. I enjoy watching TV and going on the internet. I also enjoy eating out but must admit to not being too educated on the wine list. . .or the menu come to that. I enjoy good conversation; this does not have to be intellectual (yikes) but interesting and fun. I am a little reserved when first meeting new people but improve with time. I like a laugh and feel this is the vital tonic in life. I will not respond to anyone without a photo supplied and please, no time wasters. If you have a genuine interest, then why not contact me.
Looking for a confident, attractive lady and smart in appearance. Have the ability to hold decent conversation and have her opinions. Have a GSOH and be able to make me laugh, either by words or actions. Honest and loving by nature. It would be nice to have common interests but I think it healthy to have different interests also. Not essential. Not really looking for anyone older than me.
One thing that disappoints me is e-mailing/messaging a female member and not even getting a courtesy response.
What do you like most about where you currently live?
It is not in the centre of town but on a nice estate.
What do you enjoy most about your current job?
I have just taken early retirement (50) and am not sure if I will or need to go back to work. We will see.
What are your favourite leisure activities?
Golf is my main activity. I play regularly, several times a week in summer and in winter also. I play darts during the winter months, purely for fun these days. I was going to the gym 2/3 times a week but since retiring, have not got back into the routine. I must. I have a bike which I need to ride also.
Where in the world are your favourite places?
Of the places I have been to,I would probably put Ireland as No1. I find the people magical. Portugal and Holland. I have only travelled within Europe.
Where in the world would you love to visit?
Australia, NZ, West Indies and many more that I may not be so aware of perhaps. I think I could easliy adapt to the sunshine life if I had to!!!
What would you do on an ideal date?
Play golf! nah, that would be pushing it a bit! I think it is difficult to beat a good restaurant, particularly on a 1st date.
What are you looking for in a partner?
Good sense of humour, good conversation, well presented, smart and attractive. I may be asking/hoping beyond my expectations?
What makes a good relationship?
Honesty is priority in life for me, so counts double for a successful relationship. Laughter and to feel comfortable in the quieter moments.
What makes you laugh?
Quick witted people, the ability to laugh at oneself. Other people laughing. Good comedy shows. .or similar.
What music do you like?
I enjoy good clear singing, ballads, rock, reggae, blues, mowtown, pop. Elvis, Stevie Wonder are 2 of my favourite artistes but enjoy so many others also. I DO NOT LIKE RAP! or similar.
What has been the highlight of your life so far?
Representing my County in various sports over the years, as a school boy and as an adult. I have had a couple of unforgettable individual days which were magical but to long winded to explain here. But FUNNY beyond. I'm not the best flier, but you can't get away from it, it's an amazing feeling. Hopefuly the "highlight" is STILL to come.
What are you looking forward to in the future?
Personally, good health & happiness. And for the World. . .PEACE! And that includes safety in our streets day to day!!
What is my best feature?
Maybe my finger nails. Always try to keep them sparkling clean!
