I’m a 45 year old writer, journalist and runner, living in the Lake District. I write about international affairs, mainly Africa, but also a wide range of different subjects, as I like learning about new things. It sounds obvious but I would like to meet someone to enjoy life with. I’m looking for someone kind, generally positive, vegan or vegetarian, into travel and interested in the world, whether it's other people, cultures, history, science or whatever; as long as they have a passion for discovering new things. I am - or can become - interested in loads of different things, so I'm happy to join in with your passion.rnI’m also looking for someone who sees my nine year old daughter, who lives with me part of the time, as an added bonus, as she's great! I like doing kids’ things with my daughter and am a hands-on dad. It would be nice to have more children but I’d also be quite happy to enjoy the rest of my life without having any more.
