In His Own Words

About him

Because meeting different people is interesting. Meeting someone new can make your day or change your way of looking at things - or your life...

And I am a faithful free spirit;
a home-loving adventurer;
a pragmatic romantic;
an oxymoron.

I chose the pseudonym Gabriel Oak because I admire his stoicism, but like to think I have more than a dash of Sergeant Troy's panache...

Anyone wanting to know more (who can solve cryptic clues) can do so via knulpian at 'a member of a race of brutes in Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift'... Easy, really, using google if English Literature isn't your strong point (the bit in inverted commas is the only cryptic bit).

About his ideal match

Someone who has certainties in her life but is prepared to challenge them and isn't afraid of having new adventures...
Someone slow to take offence who can have a laugh at their own expense...
Someone who knows what being fully alive means and wants to share that knowledge and joy with others...
