My own Words (click to expand)
More About Me
I'm generally light-hearted but can be serious when appropriate. Wit, wisdom and informed conversation appeals to me, as does general hilarity. I read, mostly non-fiction but a wonderful crit led me to buy a second-hand copy of Les Princes de Francalanza, a novel said to have inspired The Leopard, and yes, it was written in Italian but I'm reading the French translation. I am largely self-sufficient in that I'm capable, a reasonable cook and I'm solvent. I have a nice home which I largely converted from a stone barn myself. I respond very well to good company. I'm not much good at Woke, regarding it as mostly self-serving fakery. I definitely do not believe that either UK or France is fundamentally racist, that is patently not the case. I consider I am of an egalitarian mindset and I take people as I find them.
More About My Match
I'm seeking someone with wit, a happy outlook, an open mind that is educated and well informed and who physically is a pleasure to behold.
