new Male Walker, 61, based near Belvedere

Message: Hello, I'm Tim, 61, fit, active, lots of energy and stamina, looking for a female walking companion. Any age or ethnic origin is welcome, but I am an atheist, and there's not much point in us being too philosophically dissimilar. I live on the London/Kent border but have walked extensively in all areas of England and Wales and bits of Scotland (only the distance has kept me from doing more). Have walked most hills in the Lake District and Snowdonia and nearly all the national trails and many others. I love the UK coast and am always ready to walk any part of it, as well as local paths such as the North Downs Way and South Downs Way. In fact, I'll walk anywhere and at any time - it's what I love to do. Hopefully I'm well-rounded and I also love music, books, maps, nature, history, buildings, etc. Friends have said that I'm funny, kind, intelligent, sensitive, a good conversationalist - still, what do they know? Any companion would hopefully soon be a friend but I'm very open for this to develop into a girlfriend/soulmate/life partner situation. And if it doesn't there'd still be a good walking friendship. If any of this appeals I'd love to hear from you.

Male Walker, 59, based near Walsall

Message: Hi, my name is Mike and I'm looking for a walking companion(s) to enjoy walks with. I have walked on my own and in groups before, but prefer walking with one or two people. I don't mind, long or short distances walking. I love to walk on the hills and in the mountains. My favourite spot is the long mynd. I would like to go further a field, to discover other areas? I'm not one of these who need to do a fast walk, I just like to get into the fresh air and enjoys take in the views, or even a few photo's. I'm based just off the M6 at junction 9 most people know IKEA. I'm easy going...... I like to have a chat and a laugh, but I'm also a good listener too. I've been told from others I've got a good sense of humor and I don't mind a bit of a banter if you like that sort of thing? I don't mind what the weather is doing, has long as there is somewhere for a cuppa (pub/cafe) at the end/middle of the walk. My average distance these days is between 8 and 15 miles I'm flexible with the distance and terrains. So if you want to walk with me on a regular basis or If you are at a lose end and fancy a walk with someone different, why not get in touch. Cheers

Male Walker, 66, based near Nottingham

Message: I live within an hour of the Peak District. I know it really well and love it, but equally love Wales, The Lakes and other parts too. I first got the walking bug whilst doing a charity walk in Snowdonia in 1998 (Crib Goch at 4 a.m.). I'm happy walking on hilltops and along valleys, canals, rivers and dales as well as mountain tops. I walk to chill and enjoy what's there, not to just race to the end, what would make my day complete though is some cheerful, like minded female company to share the views, some good conversation (serious or silly), laughter and after walk refreshments. I'm chilled, have a quick wit, great sense of humour and am good fun to walk with. I'm dependable too and, being an ex DofE assessor, I'm a fairly competent map reader. If you enjoy your walking and are interested in joining me I'd love to hear from you. I can promise you an enjoyable day out. Chris

Male Walker, 54, based near Hinckley, Leics

Message: Hi, my names Paul and I'm looking for someone who is adventurous, fun and would like to go on short or long hikes. Short country walks to a country pub for food and drinks are as much my cup of tea as are the more challenging long distance trails. I like taking photos and chatting with strangers along the way, generally having a laugh and enjoying the great outdoors. I'm currently trying my hand at landscape water colour painting if you can give me some tips? In return I can safely navigate you from A-B without fear of getting lost! I can go walking almost any day of the week as my work is flexible, although I have to work a lot of weekend dates so weekdays would be best. The Peak District is a big favourite of mine because it's close to home but love the Yorkshire Dales and the Lakes, but would walk anywhere new and interesting. Would be interested in walking in Italy as I've just got the guide books and it looks amazing! So if you'd like to have your own sherpa, tour guide and some fun along the way drop me a line

Female Walker, 49, based near Ashbourne

Message: Your Message Hi I am looking for a single male walking companion of similar age. I walk every week and at every opportunity( and at least a mile a day with my lurcher/ lab puppy , his company is optional by the way)! I would like to walk any where and everywhere and would like to get better at map reading and learn more about walking/ walks. Would like to do some serious walks - Pennine way etc... I have no sense of direction and find it hard to find my way out of a paper bag mostly, so someone who is willing to be responsible for me!! would be nice as would someone with a wicked sense of humour who's company I could enjoy, so If you are young at heart, have a nice smile and would like to share some good walks (maybe easy on the eye - that always helps!!) please get in touch! I like to stop every now and then and look around at the natural beauty and drink it all in, not too keen on route marches. A nice pub is always good . I would like to have some walking holidays , weekends, travel. So if you would like to help a novice and impart your knowledge and stories ,that would be nice.

Female Walker, 42, based near Leicester

Message: Who doesn't love getting out in to the hills?! The usual places for me tend to be the Peaks, Lakes, Snowdonia or Scotland (especially the Cairngorms) but Scotland is such a loooooong drive away. I love cycling day to day, mostly road riding but also enjoy some gentle blue route mountain biking as well. I sometimes feel adventurous and try the red but am a bit technically inept :/ I started a new chapter in my life in Sep 2015 by heading back to Uni. Its been great fun and i am particularly excited about the chance I'll get to spend my summer weeks exploring the hills again. No preference to male or female companionship although i work weekends so am looking for regular company Mon - Fri (or occassionally a week or two away further afield when my timetable allows) and also people who don't mind dogs as mine goes everywhere with me. I also prefer walking with 1 or 2 people at a time. Tried the group walking and its just not for me. Hope to hear from all you fellow adventurers soon!

Female Walker, 54, based near Sheffield

Message: Hi there, I'm Kathy and would like to find a male companion to go walking with. A very dear friend introduced me to this site. She knows that I love walking, being close to nature and the great outdoors, but was aware that with the winter months encroaching I was looking for new ideas to fill my spare time. I have hobbies such as dancing and sailing but as I lost my partner very suddenly in 2011, and have lived alone since, it has been more difficult to pursue some of my interests. I have special time daily with my 2 lovely labs and we walk at least twice a day, but as they are now in their senior years, both 12 years old, I am restricted by distance. I would like to find some one who would be happy to accompany me for longer walks at a weekend. I am nick named chatty Kathy and I do like to converse on all manner of topics plus a good sense of humour is always a bonus as we meander along. I have to say I am an A star when it comes to getting lost, although a little deviation can be interesting at times. If you would consider being my companion and helping me get from A to B, (I'm hopeless at map reading), please send me a message. You never know, I might find the one I am looking for. I know you are out there. Thank you for taking the time to read my message. Kathryn

Male Walker, 53, based near Coventry

Message: Hello my name is Mike and I live in Coventry. I am a keen walker and have walked over most parts of Warwickshire, NW Northamptonshire and South Leicestershire. My map reading skills are very sound. I keep myself reasonably fit, by walking locally, but also playing racquet ball, three times a week. It would be good to meet a liked minded woman, who lives fairly locally and likes walking in the countryside, who enjoys taking in the scenery, the wildlife and having a good chat and a laugh along the way. I have a couple of mornings free during the week, which means that I am available to go walking locally during the week as well as at the weekends, for both local walks and walks further a field.

Male Walker, 55, based near Nottingham

Message: Hello, I'm 55, living north of Nottingham and now semi retired. I'm lucky enough to now only work about 3 days a week and I want to make the most of my freetime. I'm already pretty active, playing tennis, swimming and, during the summer, watching a great deal of cricket. I'm in a very happy relationship which seems to work because as well as enjoying time together we pursue our individual interests. I'm certainly not what could be described as a serious walker. I'm just looking to explore the countryside more and hopefully meet some interesting people along the way. I love going into Derbyshire and it's very convenient for me. However I have no real restrictions on where I'm prepared to go. I have a long term ambition to walk across Ireland. I think that's probably driven by some very welcoming experiences in Irish pubs. That's enough waffle for now. Cheers Tony

I am pretty flexible with work, can be available most weekends and sometimes week days. Don't mind a good hard walk as a training day but do also love a steady stroll to take in the scenery and the sounds. Walking to me is many things. a time to think , a time to push myself , a time to get away from the madness of the other world , a time to be alone or most importantly a time to share with people of many paths in life. At the moment I'm in Lincolnshire but looking at moving south next year, Somerset , Devon , Cornwall direction so heading down that way soon for a recce and maybe the odd walk or two, if anyone down that way cares to join me for a walk or has some suggestions that would be great.

Female Walker, 53, based near Leicester

Message: Hello, my name is Mags. I've been doing a lot of walking on my own over the last couple of years which, although I enjoy (it gives me thinking space), I'd like someone to share the views with and possibly a pub/tea stop afterwards. So I'm looking for a walking partner - preferably male as I enjoy male company. I love Yorkshire and visit every couple of months - having friends and relatives in the Huddersfield, Wakefield and York areas. I've got my own transport so don't mind travelling to get to a good walk. I'm just as happy doing a couple of miles stroll as I am longer distances. I walked The Cleveland Way last year covering around 10 to 15 miles a day and staying at pubs and B and B's en route and have also (a while ago) walked the Thames path and the Isle of Wight coast path. I love hills/mountains but take them at a steady pace with time for a breather every so often!. I've done Ben Nevis and Scafell Pike but could barely see anything from the top so wouldn't mind doing them again sometime soon and I've done Snowdon 3 times - every time in good weather! Most of my walking is done at weekends as I work full time during the week but could take a day off midweek if I plan ahead. I'd like to do more long distance paths in the future, possibly Hadrian's Wall and the West Highland Way. If you're interested in getting together for a walk please get in touch. I'm happy with distances up to around 15 miles or so. Look forward to hearing from you!

Female Walker, 57, based near Eye

Message: Hi, i'm Wendy. I am a keen walker but as the years have gone by my walking buddies have dropped out with knees, tendons and the like, leaving me walking on my own or pottering round the garden. So it's time to regroup, find one or two new genuine walking friends, and get out there again. I enjoy a wide range of walking, in any weather, and am probably most comfortable between 10-15 miles. I'll do everything from regular short day walks (with or without coffee at the end), which would need to be within an hour's drive or so from my home in Suffolk. Up to long distance hikes in the national parks and uplands. I have done the Coast to Coast (brilliant), SW Coast Path and Macmillan way, which I enjoyed so much I kept going north to join up with the Coast path. There don't seem to be any walkers based in the East of England on this site so if you are out there, get in touch

Male Walker, 45, based near Peterborough

Message: Hi, My name is Rob and I live in Peterborough. I'm easy going and love good conversation, interested in all sorts of things and always interested to learn. I used to be a member of a local club but the large numbers and the clickyness (is that a word) that you seemed to get, put me off. I love walking in Derbyshire and the lakes. I have climbed the old man at Coniston and two years ago did Tyfan in Wales by the North face (although to be honest I was out of my comfort zone at times). The club I was in regualary did 10-13 miles walks but I havent' done this for a year or two so might have to build up the distance again. I would love to meet up with like minded females/males to get back into walking again at weekends as I work all week. I have a reliable car and dont mind travel as long as theirs a pint at a local pub at the end of the walk! I have basic map reading although very rusty and would like to get better at this again. I look forward to hearing from you.
