My self-summary
Updated - Summer 2015.
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!
What I’m doing with my life
Accepting that I am ageing ... and coming to terms with how that seems to impact one's day to day life - whether one likes that or not!

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.
I’m really good at
Been told I am compassionate & supportive; happy to lend a helping hand or a shoulder. I think of myself as a Humanist, which might well be my way of being spiritual - but, I am not religious.

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!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess when I speak, remnants of a British accent are noticeable.

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 ....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Fiction - good mysteries, Elisabeth George, Minette Walters, John Masters, Nicci French etc.
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 ...
Six things I could never do without
French and other good cheeses
Red wine; Oh & light whites too!
(OK .. so I squeezed in a few more than 6!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... Global issues ... & How rapidly my world is changing & at such a furious pace .... e.g. ... how we communicate with each other & share important (and OTHER!! - Duh! ) information .... If I were to even suggest that it is getting out of control ... does that 'age' me!! ?? - Maybe. In my defense, I grew up knowing Twitter as an olde English word, meaning ..... to talk about irrelevancies - As in "What was that person Twittering on about?" .... being called a 'Twit' was certainly not cool.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing .... looking forward to the w/end.
Maybe having dinner with a friend ....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think this comes later .... face to face? When we are comfortable, one-on-one? Ain't private otherwise.
You should message me if
...... if any of this makes any sense to you! And ....

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.
The two of us
