Engineer Male (74) from Staffordshire

NOTE - FOR SOME REASON I CAN NOT SEND MESSAGES ON THIS SITE AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY. IF YOU WANT TO CONTACT ME FIRST PLEASE DON'T HESITATE, HOWEVER I PROBABLY CAN'T REPLY EITHER SO PLEASE EMAIL ME ( I was born in 1945 and we lived in a council house until I was an early teen, when my father bought us a house to live in. I attended the local village primary school, passed the 11 plus and went to Grammar School until I was 17. At that point I was fed up with education and started work. I later took a degree course with the Open University, gaining a first. I worked for various companies, getting redundancy in 1990 when I started as a freelance and earned more than I ever had before, and made more profit than the large firm from which I had taken redundancy.

At the age of 10 I managed to catch Polio, which has left me with two rather weak legs, but has not stopped me doing anything I really wanted to - riding motorbikes, driving cars and flying aircraft. However I can't dance and as I have aged I have become less agile. Apart from that my health is generally good, with mild hypertension (who hasn't?) and a few extra pounds (ditto). My hair is eggshell grey, number 2 cut. I normally slop around in comfortable clothes but I can wear a lounge or dinner suit if the occasion warrants it - I don't scrub up too bad. My friends of the female persuasion tell me I have a nice bum, but I can't see it myself.

I like to think of myself as a gentleman, although perhaps a bit of a rough diamond. Educated as a scientist, trained as an engineer, I have spent most of my life making, mending, servicing and tuning all sorts of stuff, for myself, for friends, and for money. Now supposedly retired and working harder than ever. I like live music of many sorts, theatre (pro or am-dram), outdoor activities (but not strenuous ones; I'm built for comfort, not speed), eating out and going away and seeing places. My friends of the female persuasion tell me I have a nice bum.
I am looking for somebody like me, but without the dangly bits. ALREADY LIVING IN UK - not from Russia, Estonia, Phillipines, Nigeria or any other benighted country. Ideally a professional or business lady, about the same age and having had the same experiences (apart from Polio, obviously). Preferably not religious, definitely a non-smoker, good sense of humour, who loves both eating out as well as doing nice food for dinner parties, is happy to go to a local folk club, 1960s rock concert, a classical music concert, or a Gilbert and Sullivan light opera as well as a London show of a major rock musical. I don't care about colour of eyes, hair or skin (* see below)- I'm more interested in sense of humour, kindness, caring, and a positive approach to life and its many problems. I want to date with the possibility of a committed long term relationship but I have to pre-warn you that I have a widow's pension from my late wife's employer which will cease if I re-marry, and I would need a lot of good reason to give up an income that could provide us with a fortnight's Caribbean cruise each winter.

* Skin should be all the same colour - i.e. NO TATTOOS and the only man-made holes in it should be in the ears, nowhere else.
