He's tall, about 6' 2" with broad shoulders and strong hands that have been used for manual work over the years. His face is attractive but not in a Mr Darcy type of gorgeousness, more of a kind face with laughter lines at the corners of his eyes. One of his most attractive features is his salt and pepper hair which I've always had a real weakness for.
He's got a very similar sense of humour to mine, we laugh at the same things and we laugh often.
He doesn't smoke and he's not a big drinker either. More of a social drinker and we both enjoy a good bottle of wine with a meal.
And I'm relieved that he's not a fanatical football fan - I had enough of that growing up with 4 football mad brothers.
He has emotional baggage of course (who doesn't at our age?) but he carries it with ease. He has a good heart, he's honest, he's one of the good guys. And most importantly, my daughters like him.
