I'm 84 and from Ipswich, Suffolk, South East (UK)
I'm looking for a woman
I'm interested in: Friends or Long Term Relationship

A young 83-year-old seeks a sidekick
I'm a well-travelled man with catholic tastes, but leaning towards the "serious" end of the spectrum such as classical music, art, photography, languages, travel. I read a lot, mainly novels (and, of course, The Oldie). I keep up with the news, but politics bores me. I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life
I would like to meet, and get to know, a lady with some similar tastes, who would become a real friend, and, hopefully, share my sense of humour. Who knows what the future might bring?
