I'm interested in making new friends at the moment. I'm intelligent and artistic, I think about things and question everything. If you are intelligent and have a fun sense of humour, then we have got something important in common.
I'd like to meet someone with a kind and generous nature. I prefer people who are open-minded, not rigid in their thinking.
While it would be wonderful to meet someone who would become a long-term partner, I can't imagine that any more. It is so rare that I get attached that it would not be fair to make promises to anyone. If a relationship is going to evolve, it will. It is best not to start out with expectations.
This does not mean that I am interested in casual relationships or in dating married men.
I have no preference as to race, colour or religion (as long as there is no cruelty to people or animals involved). Having a good nature and being a gentleman is far more important.
I am a non-smoker and seeking the same.
Whilst I don’t have any pets now, I care a lot about how we treat animals. We are not going to be a match if you are into hunting and fishing.
It would be nice to have company to go to music sessions or visit historic buildings, the coast/countryside, places of interest. I’m always interested in learning new things and in talking about your interests too (if they are decent).
I have a some health issues so would need someone understanding. People don't realise as I look well but I often don't feel it. I won't be climbing mountains or going on long treks. It is best to meet someone nearby as long journeys would be too much for me.
Please have at least one photo on here or be willing to send me one from the start. It is hard to trust a shadowy figure.
If you think might get on well, it would be lovely to hear from you.
