Far too serious in pictures, not quite so serious in real life.
Hate making lists, but love finding things in common with other
people. I'm a talker and a walker ... so not into uptightness or
insincerity, although shyness and hesitancy are fine and,
literally, I enjoy long walks and meandering conversation along the
way. I make my living (part-time) by words and love the
shape/sound/power of them. Intelligence is a turn on. Discussions
are good, arguments are bad. A man who treads the line between full
beard and not shaved for four days appeals.
What I’m doing with my life
Enjoying now, wondering what comes next and chalking up what's been
to experience. And otherwise tending my allotment, keeping down the
weeds. Finding more time and more people to take long walks with,
go to films with or write to, meet and have a coffee with. Bringing
up two wonderful kids (one of each) to be happy and confident, but
not looking for a man about the house. Love the sea, miss the big
city sometimes, thinking about what to read or listen to next. My
new obsession is Argentinian tango; much more than a dance so I'm
looking, perhaps, for a someone who'd want to dance with me - it's
not the sort that involves whiplash or roses clutched between the
teeth, rather a mix of the cerebral, musical and sensual.
I’m really good at
Being transported by books, making soup, baking cakes, being
organised and allowing room for chaos, an intellectual debate,
being a muse, not watching television, keeping up my disinterest in
sport, enjoying simple pleasures, working on tango.
The first things people usually notice about me
Good legs, slightly serious expression, begins most sentences with
'um', only very casual relationship with the iron, I do funny at my
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I hate lists, so you'll have to ask
The six things I could never do without
A cup of coffee in the morning
A glass of red wine in the evening
My two wonderful children
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to have more time to do the things I enjoy - growing
vegetables, being out in the countryside, reading novels and
listening to music, how to be the best at being me I can.
On a typical Friday night I am
Looking at the stars
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I know a very good recipe for bunny stew
You should message me if
You don't see lists as important. You live close near enough to
make meeting a real possibility.
You are slim, intelligent, witty, a bibliophile and ...
interested/interesting? Oh and if you have a passing in interest in
