“I was pleasantly surprised I could be so relaxed with a stranger. After a few shy minutes we got on really well, talked for an hour and then took off for lunch and a harbour cruise. It went well. We were happily “on the same page” in most of our conversation and our sense of humour seemed to coincide. I liked his gentleness, his courtesy and his wide ranging ideas plus the fact that he obviously had enjoyed a warm and loving relationship with his late (English) wife and family.  We are going to dinner this Sunday and I’m looking forward to it.”
