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

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.

A few excerpts from his personality test:

in his own words...

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. My favourite art galleries so far are The Tate Modern, the National Gallery, the Fitzwilliam and Kettles Yard. Art and Baroque music are in my DNA. Theatre's a great luxury for high days and holidays. Once upon a time I used to get in free which was bliss. The world seems to tilt on encountering someone special, everything feels charged and radiant, and every minute wasted that is not spent with them ... Affinity and compatible differences would be equal bonds. Hopefully you love books, can wield a spade... but you don't have to be the perfect woman. Human with a touch of humility would do very nicely. All our yesterdays have brought us to this day, all our tomorrows begin with now.

Take the personality test everyone is talking about.
