Simply put, I'm me - and I like me; which is just as well I suppose as I have to live with myself 24/7. Perhaps you'll like me too; perhaps not.
My standards are high in everything I do. I'm very selective, but would you want it any other way? I'm a true English gentleman who is intelligent, worldly, well-traveled, well-educated, cultured, sophisticated yet straightforward, romantic, an avid reader and learner, sociable, humorous (my humour tends to be from real life situations, witty, or wickedly sarcastic - but not in a nasty way!), quick-witted, giving, non-judgmental, loyal, honest, respectful, passionate about everything I choose to do ... the list goes on ... but I also have my good points! I'm far removed from the average 60-year-old, and I'm certainly not looking to share my life journey with 'Ms Average'.
That said, I am looking for someone who is very 'normal'. I don't expect you to have discarded all your so-called 'baggage' from past disappointments, but it would be nice if you've learned to live with it. I'm serious in my search, I'm not looking to be 'rescued' - I don't need it - and I have no desire to rescue anyone else. I don't mean to be mean, but I have no desire to go there yet again. So if you have emotional, mental, financial, family, weight, alcohol, drug, commitment, self-esteem or other significant problems in your life, please contact the relevant counsellor rather than me.
I do not respond to 'flirts', 'wants to meet', being added as a 'favourite', or those without representative photographs. POF is not, after all, a 'candy store'. I wish you all the best of luck in your search for whatever or whomsoever it might be.
Let's enjoy it, regardless of the outcome! I would prefer to have a glass or two of wine in the evening at a quiet(ish) venue on a first meeting so that we can converse easily. It's all about seeing if we connect.
