Seeking close friendships rather than a Soul Mate. No longer dreaming about that "white picket fence / 'till death us do part" concept - been there done that!
Having been on planet Earth for almost 3/4 of a century, I get a charge out of looking back over earlier times & find it fascinating realising just how things have changed so dramatically - I guess I am becoming something of a history buff.
On a more down to earth note .... I have been sailing all my life; been offshore many times and ran a yacht charter operation in the Med for many years, .... today, the easy, eye-ball navigation of the BVI is a favorite sailing/charter/vacation destination - in fact as recently as December 2013!!
Hand in hand with that upbringing goes my Brit sense of humour - grew up loving all the humourous stage, TV & radio classics from the 50's 60's & 70's. If you have reservations about Monty Python humour being not politically correct .... chances are that we might not see eye to eye on other issues ....
Movies - like well directed, intelligent, sometimes historical movies. Less action, more plot works for me.
Music .... Can't stand RAP! Just about anything else .... classical, folk (love the 60's folk); musicals ... 50's, 60's all time favorites, swing, big band ..... if I had to choose; Ella, Frank - & all-time most sexy, to die for ... Julie London, 'Cry me a River ...'
Food? .... Just about anything; not keen on tripe ...
French and other good cheeses
Red wine; Oh & light whites too!
(OK .. so I squeezed in a few more than 6!)
Maybe having dinner with a friend ....
If you enjoy good, stimulating conversation; if having a 'mature' friend who may not be as physically active as he was in earlier decades - brisk country walks are not on the cards, however long drives in the countryside most certainly are - and you enjoy & are comfortable with an 'open relationship' lifestyle ..... then please do get in touch.
