Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Two things have always characterised me - finding meaning in life
and how I look. Time spent with people I am close to is something I
cherish. I can enjoy groups but what sustains me are conversations
with depth to them - often with humour thrown in. I am also pretty
self-sufficient and independent and enjoy my own company. I need a
certain amount of silence and peace. I try to be honest and I like
others to be - it's so much more interesting!
My first passion was French and France and that has influenced my
style I suppose, even 'til now. Although a city person born and
bred I love to walk in the countryside and enjoy Nature very much.
I dance. My many interests are, you might say, contradictory. I AM
contradictory. I spend a lot of time on things I am interested in,
whether a political cause or art and literature, but I also love to
relax with a glass of wine or look at the moon in the early morning
whilst walking along the seafront. Turmoil over, getting older has
surprised me with unexpected pleasures. I like it that I can step
back and observe more now and life becomes more, not less,
fascinating. I don't yearn to be or look younger than I am, but to
be as good as I can at my age. 'Live the Life you Have' could be my
motto, if I liked mottoes.
I dislike cynicism and heavy irony in a man.
My friends tell me I am attractive and fun to be with. Certainly
humour is important to me and I like a man who makes me laugh. They
also say I am kind, enthusiastic and original. I like travelling
and also enjoy simple pleasures and being at home. I've performed
dance for several years and also acted in skits I wrote. I have no
need for a man to share all my beliefs and interests, but it would
be lovely to meet someone who would be equally delighted to dress
up and enjoy the opera!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just been swimming in the sea. I walk with friends or on my own in
the countryside or along the cost. I belong to a choir; we last
sang Handel's 'L'Allegro ..' I tend my (small) garden. I divide my
time between doing interesting things and pottering. I realise this
sounds very stilted, I am not stilted but whatever I do it's with
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel comfortable in my house. Meeting ideas
thoughtfully and with an open mind. Appreciating the moment and my
life. Being interested in others.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Beauty, conversation, friendship, ideas, the ability to move and
dance, tea, nasturtiums, the moon. My son.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm scared of cows. Very.
