softcentre Male (81) from Devon

Never moody, always reliable, tactile and very affectionate and loving, considerate, fun to be with, fit as a butcher's dog! Like most kinds of music, cinema, walking in the Lakes. Now retired I travel all over the UK (it would be nice to have someone to take with me).
I like all kinds of music, especially live music, and go and listen to live bands regularly. The quality is amazing. I also like opera, blues, good pop and have no boundaries in music.
Although I play sports and am keen on most activities it doesn't worry me if you don't like sport at all. I certainly don't want to take a good woman out for a meal or dancing and talk about what might have been on the football field, etc.
I also love paintings and if there is an arts programme on I can't help but be amazed by the talents of these artists from the past and many comtemporary painters as well.
I also love rural France and have not been for a year. Withdrawal symptoms approaching simply because I can't find anyone to take there!
In the past 2 years I have been to France 5 times, Switzerland 4 times, San Francisco, Charleston in the USA, Kenya so travel in small doses is good for me.
Friendly and affectionate personality a must - good looks just a bonus. Would like to think she would be interested in walking, films, the arts and music (all types). I enjoy sports but not worried if you hate sport!
Don't want a woman who just wants looking after. She must have her own interests and want her own space at times - and allow me my space as well. Then being together will be so much more pleasurable. Chemistry is everything so for those women who don't show their photo I will just say that at least a photo is a visual image and is a start to knowing whether there might just be some magic there? After all if we meet and there is no chemistry then we are going nowhere!

Hobbies and interests icon My hobbies and interests

Cooking My fish pie is to die for. Erm, with the help of Mary Berry!!
Shopping Sometimes shopping is great. But I have expensive tastes so often don’t buy
DIY I can knock things together. And in the case of politicians knock their heads together very hard. There are embarrassing.
Housework I keep a clean house but women seem to find something to rearrange
Dining out Prefer to cook at home rather than eat an ordinary and often expensive meal.
Movies Lové thé movies
Theatre Lové it but very selective
Music Lové all music except this rapper stuff
Gigs A local band in a local pub is perfect for me.
Pubs I have to ration myself as I love real ale
Clubbing Once upon a time. Now prefer slubbing, but more fun with a lovely woman
Newspapers and magazines All lies to sell newspapers
Books Thé classics
TV Selective but don’t watch anything that doesn’t finish that night. Definitely hate soaps!
Watching sport Lové good quality sports. The Women’s World Cup is a revelation. No spoilt brats arguing with the ref. Just a good honest game which will most probably be spoilt when the money gets too important.
Playing sport Used to play, rugby, athletics, tennis and badminton. Now obviously retired
Hobbies Opéra, people watching and just enjoying life while in good health. Yesterday won’t come back.

Hopes and dreams icon My hopes and dreams

In ten years I see myself Dead. The world’s a mess.
Who would I invite to a dinner party? Jonathan Miller, Ronnie Barker and Brigitte Bardo for a bit of footsie under the table!
My ideal date With someone who’s alive and sees the best in people
What would I never, ever give up? Breathing
If I had to give a speech on a subject I was passionate about ... Human suffering
If I could visit anywhere in the world at any time in history India
If I had a million pounds to give to charity Children impoverished by war
My "and finally" section ... I still like Jelly Babies
