More About Me

I didn’t had a farm in Africa, but I was born there. I grew up among the sounds, smells and colors of that continent. Nobody forgets the place where he/she was born and raised, but that feeling is stronger when Africa is your homeland. In my case, I had to live Angola in 1976, when I was 19 years old and a bloody civil war took over all the country. Never went back and never will. There is a say, in Portuguese: “Never go back to the place where you were happy...”

I'm a freelance journalist and writer, twice married, twice divorced. I lived also in Asia (Macao, China) for 25 years. I have two sons (32 and 23 years old, both have their own life) and like to read, watch a good movie, have a nice meal with a good red wine. I like to walk in the beach with a good company or just sit down at a bar and contemplate the sunset over the riverside, in Alcochete, where I live. My home is 500 meters from the riverside of Tagus (17 miles large) and Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is on the other side of the bridge. Disco and dancing was fine, but a couple of years ago. Now, I prefer a night talking with friends, in a bar, having a couple of drinks...

Reading (everything, from books, newspapers, magazines to online news sites) is my main hobby. I can cook and I'm quite good at it...

I also like to sit on the sofa, on a cold winter day, with a blanket and somebody at my side, to watch some good movie, documentary or TV series. I spend a lot of time at my laptop, as it is my "working instrument", because I concentrate in online news, in my work as a freelance journalist. I'm very attached to my family (sister, brother-in-law, 3 nephews and mother) who live near by and I see them almost every day.

I played rugby, when I was a young man, trained boxing and Muay Thay for more than 12 years. Nowadays, I still exercise but in a more soft way (some jogging and some gym sessions). Last but not least, I'm a Conservative from a political point of view...

More about my Match

I'm 60 years old and I'm looking for somebody who wants to be me best friend, my confident, my helping hand, my companion for long walks on the riverside, my love for the rest of my life - just a quiet lady who wants to share with me the remaining years we have to live, in peace and harmony. Loyalty and dedication to each other are so important, in a relationship, as love.


Just a "regular" European, descending from the many peoples that lived in Iberia, what is called in scientific terms, a "White Caucasian"...


I spend a year and a half at Law Faculty in Lisbon University but dropped out and got no degree. I've been working as a journalist for 31 years. Had editorial responsibilities in several Media were I worked (Rádio Renascença, A Capital, O Independent


I don't go to church every Sunday. But everyday I do what my father taught me, when I was a child, as a basic ethical, moral and religious principle: "Never do to others what you don't like they do to you":


I'm a freelance journalist and translator. I also do some copy-desk and proofreading work. I am a writer - a beginner, as I just published my first thriller on 2015)
