In His Own Words

About him

Friends say I am articulate, warm, sensitive, funny, passionate; someone who still believes in the huge capacity of the human heart. I value empathy, loyalty, patience, compassion, imagination, intelligence, left-wing/liberal/green politics, fIdelity, healthy scepticism mixed with optimism, good humour, the ability to truly relax, ethical values, passion, social & ethnic inclusivity & joie de vivre. I am an atheist but respect differing beliefs. I am a divorcee (of 11 years). Love dogs (& most animals) tho' since losing my gorgeous collie only do occasional dog sitting for now). Not lucky enough to have had children, but do love children. I'm a Uni. Reader in History but on brink of taking early retirement in autumn 2022, so the world will soon be my oyster. I like reading and writing, but also the simple things, including comedy, art, tv, radio 4, swimming & walks. I love singing, dancing, coffee, freshly baked bread, cooking for others, being cooked for (by good cooks), good company & my own time & space, making people smile & laugh, forests, coastal walks, pubs & cafes. My musical tastes span from Mahler, Richter & Schubert to Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Radiohead, Massive Attack, PJ Harvey, Sia, Sigur Ros (heavy metal only excluded). Love theatre, art galleries, movies. Try to gym regularly, love cycling, play badminton as much as I can, occasional tennis. Love walking, esp. in the Lakes and Yorks Dales, travel (& coming home), quality time with quality people whether in cities, coast, or countryside. Still trying to adjust to reaching 60 this year when I feel so much younger, but at least most friends tell me I could still pass for late 40s. I have a lot of art, books, ceramics, & Venetian masks so ideally need to meet someone who can persuade me to declutter, or else appreciates beautiful objects. I enjoy spending time chatting over food & drinks with interesting, funny people & discovering new things; staying young & open in heart & mind. Drop me a line if some of this might appeal.

About his ideal match

Wishlists have real limits but merely for starters, it would be good to find someone open, honest, optimistic, empathic, supportive, witty, intelligent, loving and loyal. Someone willing and able to be imaginative, passionate and romantic, as well as ironic, irreverent, silly, and sceptical, when it suits. Someone who genuinely likes themselves (without being arrogant) and who likes life. Someone who laughs and smiles easily.

What His Friends Say

Seema said...

Jonathan is kind, caring, thoughtful, intelligent, sensitive, tolerant and fun! He is very attractive with a great smile and sexy voice. He works out to keep in trim and is becoming addicted to badminton! He is ready to embark on a deep and meaningful relationship and whoever that is with, they will have found a loving, generous partner to share their life with. He is an excellent cook too - what more could you ask for?
