My self-summary
You could say I am full of contradictions - who isn't?
I am not British, but lived in the Capital for 19 years, I guess that makes me a Londoner. Being a country girl at heart, I love London with everything it has to offer.
I am a girl for every weather and feel equally comfortable in high heels, as well as in hiking boots. I pack light and I am ready for any adventure. I used to be an endorphin junkie, not so much lately - working long hours - but if you were to suggest heart pumping activity - I'd be the one, dragging us to do it ;-) I love most cardiovascular activities (cycling, swimming, running, mountain walking, scuba diving).

I’d like to believe that I appreciate the good things in life. I feel pretty content and happy, but exploring foreign destinations, experiencing life itself is always more fun with someone we love. To sum it up: It would be magical to share those cosy Malteser moments on rainy Sundays or sizzling hot summer nights with all round great guy ;-) "Here’s me hoping..."

(I don't really have a type of a man that I go for, my only request is that you are confident, relaxed, with a modicum of verbal dexterity.)
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure out the ultimate answer to 'the great question of life, the universe, and everything’….and I am really starting to believe that it is fooooooooooooooooooooooourty twooooooooooooo
I’m really good at
1) Making excuses for being late. I do try to be on on time but lately I've been failing miserably.
2) Spelling, . . . Just kidding! There is no logic in English spelling, it drives me nuts!
The first things people usually notice about me
My eight thousand seven hundred and eighty nine Freckles
Trust me, I counted!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am more a radio lover rather than a cd/media file collector. Movies are my passion and usually watch them instead of tv-shows. The choice of a movie depends on my mood. I have a wide range of favourite genre: political thrillers, costume dramas, rom-coms, sci-fi, action. To list a few of my favourites: As Good as it gets, Out of Africa, The way we were, All the Presidents Men, Aeon Flux, G.I.Jane, Body of Lies, Inception, Amistad, Charlie Wilson's War, The Chronicles of Riddick, Star Trek Into Darkness

I love to cook. I am experimental by nature - resulting in many signature dishes you would not find in any cook books.
The six things I could never do without
Are you Kidding? The best invention in the world.....tampax gives you wings ;-) did I say that out loud? Oh, No! :-( too late ;-P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How unpredictable and full of surprises life is...
Analyzing why nothing lasts forever and only change is constant...
Wondering why there are no guarantees in life…
On a typical Friday night I am
Skyping with my family and friends, or booking flying tickets to visit them all, or watching a movie or unpacking boxes { I no longer have an attic! }
Usually socialising, dancing, or attending fun events
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wish I had Jedi powers
& I loooooove shoes
You should message me if
If YOU are emotionally available and able to think outside the box …
or perhaps you get the Meerkat tickets 2 for 1 and want company to see Spectre ?

As much as I understand that on line dating is much more work for men than ladies, I will not be replying to any emails consisting of 1 or 2 lines, especially the type : “How are you? Great Pictures.”

27 July : I had this impulsive idea, whilst chopping onions this
evening, so I am adding following:
You should message me if: you are outdoorsy, articulate, confident, relaxed, all around great guy. This time round I am just not willing to compromise on any of these attributes.
. . . and if you have a bike rack on your car ,
get your coat, you’ve pulled ;-)
Blame the onions, not me!

This is for all of you lovely gentlemen across the seas and the
oceans: if you look at my profile carefully you will find that I am
looking for ‘Long term dating’ NOT ‘long distance’, I repeat NOT
LONG DISTANCE dating. You will have to forgive me, if you won’t
receive my reply.

Apparently OkC says I'm logged in many times when I'm actually not. I think the site is often left open in my Android phone browser or app. So...I'm not ignoring you, I'm just not viewing the page, or checking my phone. I don’t chat on OkC messenger
