Peaceful, quiet, countryside, being near the sea, rural, not too built up yet within easy distance of main towns and airport, as I love travel, but nowhere cold..!
What do you enjoy most about your current job?
I'm retired so happy to travel...! I do paint, watercolour and acryllics on canvas, or cards ..I still 'work' on some projects, that are a sort of hobby, usually something that is of interest recreationally or for the good of the community. But also keeping a good work, life, community balance.
What are your favourite leisure activities?
Relaxing, walking not a route march, but gentle exercise, National Trust, English Heritage, Historic Houses, and Afternoon tea. Music, Concerts, regularly go abroad for winter warmth, Tenerife, Mauritius, cruises. Or driving in the UK to top hotels, south coast through to Cornwall..Tke a simple interest in sports - watching, but not totally absorbed...
Where in the world are your favourite places?
Spain, Tenerife, Mauritius, Santorini, Greece, Turkey, Italy, Eastern and Western med, anywhere not too far but must be warm but not searing heat.

What makes a good relationship?
Friendship and love, understanding of each other, no arguments, or hurt.. Interest in each others views even if vastly different..Allowing expression and kindness, viewpoint, but above all love and interest in each other, being there through good times and not so good times..

IF I interest you, then please contact
I don't want to be rude, but I'm a bit fed up having driven up to 100 miles round trip to meet interested people...A few have suggested to me a time and place to meet. That is preferable as you are and need to be in control.
So at times I think I'm doing all the work, IF you like me and want to meet, don't just look forlorn, act and suggest - don't leave it all up as a one sided operation, and if I don't fit your ideal, then please say so, 'don't ride off into the sunset'.. Feedback would be nice. Thank you. And distance is not a problem, I have driven most of the UK in my working life as computer engineer.The right person for me is out there but maybe not next door.. Let me know..
