I would describe myself as:
An honest, sensitive, intelligent man who is a good listener. Although initially a little shy, I value companionship and have much to give and to share. My interests include literature, history, politics, spirituality, travelling, walking/cycling and visiting new places. All in a spirit of adventure and discovery, I hope!
My ideal partner would be:
Someone who would love companionship to explore the Bronte country in Yorkshire, Robbie Burns country in Scotland or Dylan Thomas's home place in Wales. And nearer to home perhaps Kavanagh country in Monaghan, Heaney country in Derry or Yeats country in Sligo. Not to mention other places of literary, historical or spiritual significance.
Someone with similar interests and values, including a respect for the planet, justice and human rights; who may have travelled a bit and have an interest in the wider world; who likes to share places and experiences, ideas and feelings; who is sensitive,intelligent and independent-minded. A good listener as well as talker.
And she might also be a little quirky, outside the mainstream!!
My ideal date would be:
A coffee or drink in a quiet pub or cafe. Then, on a later occasion, a film, concert or play (followed by a drink in a pub, with a bit of music perhaps)
