This is always much more difficult to do that you think - it would be much better if one of my friends wrote this. Hang on, that's not a bad idea . . .
"Hello, I'm one of Andrew's friends. He's a lovely chap and genuinely looking for someone. He is really popular here in the village where we live and I don't think I've ever seen him angry or in a bad mood. He's not rich or famous but he has had a really interesting life and I'm pretty sure that he'll be both one day. His main job is a lecturer to pay the rent but his main talents are writing and design, especially web design. He is trying to get a novel published and that could well happen - not just some dream. He works way too hard which is probably why he hasn't met anyone yet. From a previous marriage he has some super children who stay most weeks and he's a great dad even though he's not living with them.
He looks nothing like as old as he is and seems pretty fit and healthy. Doesn't even know who is doctor is! Cooks and cleans and does everything for himself quite happily. He's got good taste and excellent manners - some may think he's a bit old-fashioned in some ways but he's also very modern in others. He loves music of all sorts and is just great company.
Somebody somewhere will love him.
What am I looking for? Hmmm. There's something special about loving someone and I miss that. And making love to someone too. Have to be honest and say I miss that! I am quite romantic at heart but also want someone who might be interested in some of the things I do so that I don't feel guilty doing them and, instead, we can work on ideas together.
Although I probably have no right to be, I think I'm quite fussy about what someone looks like, sounds like, dresses like and, yes, I know you shouldn't judge by appearances but I need that spark that comes from seeing someone and feeling attracted to them.
I guess there won't be many people out there who are looking to get married again or settle down as you may have your own lives running well already. If there is, great, but if not then I don't mind starting off seeing each other from time to time and hoping that we like each other enough to make a permanent relationship.
I'm 69 years old and come from Northamptonshire in the United Kingdom. I'm divorced with no kids. I'm 5' 10" tall and of average build. I don't smoke and I drink occasionally. I'm here for dating.
