    "Looking for someone to share good times! "

    I am 77 years old, although I am told that I don't look it

    Having worked in finance jobs in the city until 2017, I am now retired, but continue to have an involvement with rock music via an online business of which I am a director. I have also recently become a trustee of a railway history museum.

    I lived in London for most of my working life, but I now live in a small village in Berkshire, and enjoy the quietness after the hurly-burly of a London life.

    I am looking for someone to share the good things of life - good food and wine, visits to the theatre and opera (particularly Mozart, Verdi and Puccini), and European travel.

    Location Berkshire, South West (UK)

    I spent all my working life in the City of London and, in particular, in the finance functions of businesses in and around the Lloyd's insurance market.  

    I was lucky to be able to go to a great Grammar School in the early 1950s, and then to be able to go to Cambridge, where I read Maths. I scraped a third class degree, mainly as I spent a lot of time playing the piano in small modern jazz and R & B bands in Cambridge! 

    I am an atheist.  

    I would describe myself as to the left of centre, in that I believe in the redistribution of wealth via a progressive tax system, but I cannot support the Labour Party in its present form. 

    Languages Spoken:
    French, I speak French to the extent that I can get by when I travel to France. 

    Musical Instruments played:
    Guitar, Piano, I learned piano from the age of 4, but moved away from classical music to jazz in my teens. I also play guitar, but badly. 

    Music Enjoyed:
    Blues, Classical, Jazz, 50s music, 60s music, 70s music, My musical interests are wide - from opera to rock music of the 1970s.  

    Sports and exercise:
    I play no sport. 

    Interests and activities:
    Concerts, Eating Out, Internet, Reading, TV, Listening to music at home, watching good TV programmes and box sets. 

    Newspapers and magazines:
    Financial Times, Guardian, The Times 

    I like modern fiction, both UK and US - eg Ian McEwan, Julian Barnes, Sebastian Faulks etc. I read Michael Connelly and Lee Child as crime writers. 

    Favourite Films:
    Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Casablanca, The Godfather, Jean de Florette, Manhattan, Some Like It Hot I like film, and watch a lot on Sky, Netflix and Amazon Prime. 

    Enjoyable evening out:
    Restaurant, Theatre 

    Favourite Dishes:
    Lemongrass and ginger marinated chicken, Roast Beef and Yorkshire pudding, Smoked Salmon. I love good food and wine, but now have to say that I have to exercise moderation in how much I indulge in these pleasures! 

    Ideal Holiday:
    I now travel mainly to European cities for long weekend breaks. In the 1970s I drove around the West Coast of the USA, and enjoyed it greatly, but long-distance travel has since lost its appeal. 

    In another life:
    a musician - perhaps bass guitarist in a really powerful soul music band! 

    Ambitious, Caring, Confident, Dominant, Generous, Strong willed
