Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is the hardest part: I'm outgoing and also a thinker, I like
to see the broader picture and understand what is going on. Life
and people are endlessly fascinating to me. I love laughter and
humour too and a bit of 'craic'. I parrticularly like people with a
sense of adventure, who haven't lived an overly conventional life,
but I don't mean anything too wierd and wonderful. I love travel
and exploring other cultures and have been to many countries, but
there are many more places to see, or go back to, and I'm hoping I
may get to do more than be a tourist again, e.g. volunteer
overseas. I'm keen on yoga and interested in health, attracted to
meditation though not great at practising it. Nature's really
important to me, whether it's just getting dirt under my
fingernails in the garden, watching a nature documentary on TV or
actually getting out and about into the great outdoors, even just
the Botanic Gardens or better still, a good walk on the beach or in
the mountains. Not surprisingly, I feel strongly about taking
better care of our planet,even if all that endless recycling can be
a bit of a chore.
I'm curious about life, adventurous and bohemian at heart.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Busy raising my son as a single parent, working as a teacher,
managing a home and trying to balance those with some time for my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Languages, connecting with other cultures, seeing things from
others' perspective and perceiving what people are about &

I'm quite regularly mistaken for someone else (there must be a lot
of other women who look like me - or else some celebrity??!!)

I love escaping into a good read - who-dunnits with plenty of
atmosphere and either a foreign or historical setting or.books
about living in and exploring other countries; there was a time
when I read a lot in the sociological and 'self-improvement' vein
but these days I enjoy fiction more. I'm not a great fan of
Hollywood movies, they're often too predictable and shmaltzy for my
taste but they're hard to avoid and there are good ones sometimes.
I like European films, but don't often get to see them.
Music? I listen to a lot of classical, world, Latino, Irish trad,
jazz of the less offbeat variety, and some rock, blues and
I like Mediterranean food, seafood, good salads,barbeques and I can
overdose on fruit ; but lest anyone think I'm disgustingly
health-conscious, I've a weakness for pastries, nice desserts, dark
chocolate(70%) and ice-cream too and am not bad at baking cakes
either when I've time to spare.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to give my son a happy and balanced upbringing, how to be more
fulfilled when life can sometimes be very mundane, whether I'll
ever meet that someone special, the state of the nation and the

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're someone with a bit of depth and a sense of fun, who's able
to be serious and mad too, maybe a bit intellectual but down to
earth as well. Someone who has thought about why we're here, who
wants life to have meaning, who's able to listen and give of
themselves. And of course, romantic and passionate...brown eyes are
a big plus for me too
