My self-summary
Wow, isn't it a fascinating process coming up with a profile about yourself! Yes I've written a lot but it's for Your benefit, not mine, ie so you can get a good sense of who I am.

It's been said that women are 'complex creatures'. Are we? Any more then men - if they allowed themselves to feel and talk about that whole world hidden beneath the surface?
I don't know...but it's interesting to contemplate than have fixed views. I think the last 50 yrs has seen so much change in every way, especially for men, if they're up to the challenge, of opening up and being different to our parents generation and before that.

I've lived as a free spirit mostly, or according to my 'rules' rather than society's, which hasn't been any easier than any other way perhaps, just the way I am, and maybe 'cos I rebelled against some of my upbringing, which was different to say 80% of more 'normal' families.
As I age, it's a mixed blessing, to have experience behind me, but then one's inevitably shaped by them in ways I would not have chosen had I had complete choice in the matter, tho' some believe that we choose everything that happens to us...but that's another story...

I am many things, at different times: Young at heart, independent, contrary, passionate, practical, obstinate, kind, indecisive, honest, annoying, genuine, philosophical, naïve, friendly, cautious, wise, analytical, emotional, intuitive, affectionate, impatient, understanding,...etc.

I have many interests: in aesthetics, history, the arts, photography, philosophy, ontology, proofreading/editing, architecture, anthropology, health matters, justice issues, the affairs of developing countries, the bios of interesting people; I thrive on stimulating conversation and scrumptious, healthy food the way others need the sun and beach.

There are many things that get me excited like certain animals (dragonflies, moose, squirrels); ruined castles, clouds, flowers and trees, sunrises & sunsets.
I like hugging, laughing, and to hear what makes people tick.
I’ve enjoyed reading and travelling (I've been to 33 countries or thereabouts!), and seeing how others live.
I’m a curious person, and ask more questions than most, or so I’m told.
I want to know answers about life! (but it remains a mystery mostly)
Being authentic & honest is important to me.
I need time alone as well as being with people who like and respect me.
I'm a modern woman without being fanatical.
I’ve done a lot in 55 yrs.

And I can still get bored with life; I’m a bit world-weary at times. Travel & nursing have shown me a side to life many choose not to see or avoid.
Now – in my not-yet-but-almost twilight yrs! – I seek companionship and to meet my match (if he exists), but I won’t compromise about quality. A good judge of character, most of the time, I’m in no rush, and I don't play games.

PS Heh guys - please do make an effort and write enough in your profile so it's possible to get a sense of who you are, your values, and whether we have enough in common to connect. Thanks
What I’m doing with my life
Not much in one sense and yet...Contemplating what next...and reflecting on life and my part in it...and taking some time out.
Living more in the moment.
Fooling around on the internet; doing some of these okc tests!! Aren't they a scream!
I’m really good at
Ummm. Being me! (someone else said that and I thought how true!)
Talking/exchanging ideas/debating.
Helping others
The first things people usually notice about me
I've often been told I have a nice smile so I guess it's that. Well it's nicer to see people smile than grimace, isn't it?! (and you use less muscles evidently!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Too many to name!
Good drama or non-fiction.
Some films (off the top of my head): Red Cliff (brilliant Chinese film), Thin Red Line, Amadeus, 12 Angry Men (both versions), Das Boot, Memento, Shine, Casablanca, American Beauty (music is ++++), Oh Brother, where art Thou?, The English Patient (music again is ++++)

Love some web sites like TED
TV shows: 3rd Rock from the Sun was my favourite; also Whose Line is it Anyway, Timeline, Grand Design, Insight, Judge Judy, Monk

Music: world music ESP African but also classical, folk, American rock, 80s music general (great when driving), esp Shade, Elton John, Tears for Fears, Sting

Food: quality v quantity (French is still the best!)
The six things I could never do without
6 things only!! Impossible. Here's my list - so far:
. My freedom (not living under a repressive regime, etc)
. My car (the freedom to drive anywhere anytime! What luxury which most Westerners take for granted)
. Flannelette sheets, electric blanket or a hottie for winter (I'm a sook!!)
. Aspirin (the only thing that will get rid of headaches for me)
. Toothbrush & paste
. Hot water for washing in (anyone tried a cold shower in winter?!)
. Friendships - love & quality time together, and laughing
. (Black) Tea & lots of it - many varieties
. Mobile & the internet
. Sunshine
. Beauty (in all its manifold varieties)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
. Life - purpose/meaning, how, why, etc
. What I want/don't want in life
. How to live as healthily as possible - physically, spiritually, psychologically, socially
. If I was to enter into a relationship, what I'd be seeking, and reflecting on the profiles I read - what it might say or imply about the person.
On a typical Friday night I am
Don't have typical Fridays as such but I'm probably putting my feet up and spending it quietly at home unless there's something to go out for.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 45–70
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if see there's a genuine fit, ie enough interests in common, which means at the very least, a good level/aptitude to communicate about feelings and thoughts. My next relationship (other than the ones that become friends) will be with a sensitive and articulate male, who is as genuinely motivated to make it work as I, so that when issues arise he will be willing to go on a journey until we arrive at a place we can both be ok with, even if it means accepting difference.
I realise there are not too many relationships like this out there, and that's ok. I would rather stay single than compromise again.
Also you need to be a non-smoker.
Thanks for reading this far!
