Wanted: resoundingly masculine hero
Reader who has just finished vol 2 of Proust seeks counterbalance. Looking for tall, attractive-in-a-dangerous-sort-of-way man of uncertain age, who has lived hard and has the scars to prove it. Cynical, coolly-assessing eyes, ruthless mouth. Able to handle car/horse/variety of weaponry with panache and effortless skill. Usually armed, morally ambiguous. May have independent wealth or be available for hire. Sardonic humour a plus. Should enjoy travelling (possibly to countries behind the Iron Curtain, or to Napoleonic Spain, not necessarily under his own name). Dress unimportant but should have the sort of looks women just can’t resist. Brief encounter considered, long term commitment preferred.
Applicants should apply via comments, and will be carefully vetted for suitability.
