LaurenceSW1 Male (73) from central London

Am solvent, living in Pimlico, London SW1 and previously served with HM Forces and following that posted abroad to some interesting places, such as Moscow, Vienna, Rome, Helsinki to name but a few as well as travelling to the USA and Africa.

I am kind, caring, considerate and I have a wicked sense of humour, the glass is always half-full ! Am quite laid back and never get lonely but I do miss feminine company and someone to go to the 'flicks' or theatre with or just a walk or a weekend away. I never take myself too seriously & am generally a happy person who seldom gets moody or goes into a decline. I am adventurous in all aspects of my life ! I was in a long-term relationship up until 3 years ago but the lady went to Australia to be with her daughter and I considered it too far away from my children, who mostly live in Wiltshire. I was a single-parent for some years so I enjoy seeing my children every six to eight weeks.

I am an animal lover, my favourite being black Labradors.

I read a great deal, travel quite a bit & often spends weekends somewhere in Europe.

I enjoy eating out, though I do cook.

This year so far, I have spent quite a few weeks down in Pembrokeshire and am considering buying a house there, just a few miles from one of the many wonderful sandy beaches of Pembrokeshire, depends on how this site works out !

I enjoy a glass of wine a day and about one pint of beer a week with my Sunday roast down the pub, never more unless I am in company in which case I enjoy the odd brandy.

I am a generous and appreciative man with, I hope, good manners. I am not interested in so-called 'one-night-stands' but then I have been celibate for more than 3 years. As and when or if the time comes, I may have to get the instruction book out ! I am honest, loyal, caring, protective, respectful. To prove this point I am happy to give the right person my email address, land-line & mobile phone number and address soon as we 'break the ice'

I joined this site a long time ago but ceased to be active after a couple of months. Thought I would try again !
Am looking for an attractive lady, aged between 45 and 55, though I am flexible. She should be unselfish, kind, caring, considerate, honest, loyal and have a heart of gold -just like me :) !
