Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Lookswise, I am a size 10-12 with curves - I prefer to keep my body
in a more Venus / hourglass shape rather than skinny. (Years spent
studying art history have impacted my idea of beauty and it's
different from the modern magazine skinny look.)
I have a Celtic complexion, with fair skin and blue eyes, and
thick, curly long browney-auburney hair, and am 5"7 tall.
I'm a Renaissance woman in many ways, I understand science and the
arts in virtually equal measure. I'm well-educated, travelled and
have considerable life experience, which makes me intimidating to
some. And tends to attract a particular type of man, often older
businessmen who are not intimidated by such a woman.
I'm sensitive, and enjoy music, arts, theatre, the finer things in
life, nature and scenery, travel and culture. I like people who are
intelligent, interesting, have a nice sense of humour and a good
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm at a cross-roads. I've recently published a book which looks
about to be optioned for foreign rights with a literary agent. I
run a modest company, and am completing a second MA, my
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Quite a few things. Understanding art, archaeology, architecture,
design, philosophy, music, writing, reasoning and science. I can
sing fairly well in the shower, and to small children. I have a
warm heart, and deep compassion.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - Marguerite Duras, Anais Nin, Milan Kundera. Non-fiction
books on art, architecture, archaeology, travel.
Movies - too many to list. Arthouse films and foreign films, but
also the odd popular film, and lighter entertainment.
Music - also varied. House music, cheesy pop, opera, jazz, folk,
actually almost any music in the world I like. At the moment I am
listening to a diverse mix of John Frusciante, Nina Simone, Delibes
"Lakme", Adele, PJ Harvey, to list but a few CDs.
Food - I like Thai, Italian. French. Japanese, Lebanese, Chinese
(particularly Sichuan and Hunan cuisine).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Chanel no 5 (Like Marilyn Monroe, it's what I wear to bed)
Mocha (Half-coffee, half-chocolate, blended into a perfect and hot
nourishing, stimulating elixir, blissful sigh)
My Dior patent stilettos (Comfortable & sexy, the impossible is
My passport (ah yes, freedom and travel)
Pen and paper or a laptop (Writing implements of some kind)
Wait I get one more....Hmmmm....the pressure....I'm going to have
to think about this one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Goodness, so many things. My brain is always buzzing. I like to try
and stop it from doing so, occasionally.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
My ideal man would be someone who is masculine in his energy,
strong but kind, open-minded and liberal, enjoys intelligent
conversation, has a good sense of humour, is kind, who enjoys sex,
physically caring for a woman by having his hand on the small of
her back etc. Who appreciates a woman who has some strength,
intelligence and passion in her. If this is resonating, then of
course send me a message.
