Hopefully for you I'll be the needle you find in the haystack, the end of the rainbow, the silver lining..

He is popular, trustworthy and dependable. However, He has an impetuous, spontaneous, fun loving side which also makes him exciting.

He admires people who are traditional, responsible, precise and orderly, yet spontaneous, socially savvy and affable.

He likes a partner who has good manners, old-fashioned courtesy, unambiguous values and social grace. Nevertheless, he tries new things and explores new ideas and he particularly likes people who share his energy and curiosity.

in his own words...

because the reality almost always exceeds description of an ideal. I can waffle, be witty or win you over with warmth - I can bring you sunlight- joie de vivre, fun, laughter; I laugh a lot but am good at silence, I'll listen for ages but am at my best in conversation; I can offer you showers of empathy, insight, creativity; I will offer you roots- let you come and go trustfully. I'll shade you with support. I'll nourish you by knowing and accepting yourself and myself as we are; I'll ask you to be the wind moving me, but not the shovel that digs me up against my will! 'Song of a man who has come through' ( Lawrence) and ' Love bade me welcome' (Herbert) are my latest favourite poems. My life revolves around special people- my much loved son- who've emerged from the hurly burly of family life far, far wise, and is flown on his strong wings- my circle of very close friends, my new and promising garden (i.e. I am still watching it for inspiration) and my work as a Military man. More special things to list: the mysteries of turquoise, Rothko, walking in all weathers, sharing poetry, reading/ seeing Shakespeare, cinnamon, visiting the Botanical gardens. I also love pruning forsythia ( which I hate with a vengeance) and a having a bedside pile of books waiting to be read ( I'm not so good at pruning them). Henry Moore's Sheep Sketchbook moves me deeply. I dont have a particular type i am looking for, but i prefer someone who has a bit of a build (med/large) and height, at least 5'5, looks not as important as a neat and tidy appearance...a wierd SOH would be a plus as we will laugh at the same things then. I appreciate that i am not everyones 'type' which is the same that not every lady out there will be my type...however, politeness does not cost dont be afraid to say hi, i will always reply...if i mail you and i am not your type, just say so..nicely..i understand go on what are you waiting for?

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
