I'm looking to meet someone fun I can share the things I love with - be that going for a bike ride, a run, chilling out watching a film, in the pub for a few glasses of wine or cooking a nice meal at home. Someone who can challenge and inspire me. There totally is more to life than being in a relationship, but at the same time I really do miss having that close emotional and physical connection with a man.
I play hockey every week so like to keep fit and would like to meet someone who is equally as sporty - who can motivate me by joining in exercise with me. Love getting out on the hockey pitch each Saturday, so I guess supporting on the side line would be mandatory! I ran the marathon a couple of years back and definitely need a new challenge for the next year. Any ideas?
Friends are important to me and I regularly get together with my mates. A few drinks in town, or round someone's house with a bbq and hot tub. Though less of the bbqs recently... Holidays are a passion too - I love going to new places - last year was Cuba, this year Sweden and the Northern Lights and of course the obligatory beach holiday given I am a sun worshipper. I am not against pasty white men as long as you're happy to lie on a beach or by a pool once we've done the 'doing' bit of the holiday!
In terms of what I look for in a guy, honesty is probably top of my 'list'. A man who is caring, fun, ambitious, sincere, genuine and intelligent is really important to me. I can't stand arrogance. It's important to me to be with someone who is friend and family orientated, likes to be with a girly girl, is happy with where he is in life having acheived dreams but equally has goals still to be reached. Someone with an appetite for life and with time for me to be in it! Life's too short to worry about things which may not happen (the big 30 this year has put things in perspective, (as did the hangover)...) - so someone who makes things happen with their life I find inspiring.
I look forward to meeting you over a glass of vino or a beer, so get in touch if you think we may have that elusive connection...
I'm also great at being a loyal friend, being there to support friends when needed, whether it's to laugh, cry, rant, moan, giggle or share a bottle of wine with.
Lucky enough with my job to have some amazing lunches so I've experienced quite a few restaurants including Heston's Fat Duck which must be my all time favourite. I love going to new places but doesn't have to be fancy...a little french haunt or local italian is equally as nice and usually half the price!
Films, well lads I'm afraid I am a Dirty Dancing / Ghost lover - but then again which girl isn't?! Love going to the cinema to see all the new releases but sometime just as fun to have a night in with a bottle of vino and an old dvd. Romantic!
