Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would call myself independent - having lived on my own for a good
number of years. I am also a valued friend - I am loyal and
trustworthy and a good listener. Some people find me quite serious
when they first meet me, but I love to laugh and have fun. I do
have a serious side and I am self reflective and fairly deep
thinking. I am extremely loving and tender. I am also organised and
a good planner.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working part-time currently on a self-employed basis - so work goes
up and down a bit and causes me a bit of worry at times. Other
times I just relish the free time. I love the work that I do and am
working towards working for three days next year, in a slightly
more organised way than currently. I need to free time up for other
interests which will make my life more rounded. Currently I love to
read, walk and cook but it's all a bit ad hoc.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've always said I was the one in the family with the least obvious
shining talent! I am good at cooking - particularly baking. I'm
really good at organising but also good at sharing responsibility
and not feeling as if I need to be in charge. I'm a fun Granny and
feel I have been a great Mum. I'm also a really good friend.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Lots of people comment on my short hair, my jewellery collection
(nothing fancy but I'm not often seen out without earrings!) and my
sense of style. People are also often surprised that I'm in my 60's
- I am usually taken for younger.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books change all the time. I've just read A Thousand Splendid Suns,
so that, of course, is my favourite book. I've just been listening
to Johnny Cash - so, yes, he's my favourite. I like some folk,
country and western and jazz. Anything which reaches my soul. Food,
eating out would a curry or a good pizza or something more upmarket
- fish, meat or vegetarian. I like simple, well cooked food. At
home I mostly cook and eat fish or vegetarian for me. I love cakes
and coffee. Movies, I love a variety but not keen on thrillers and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
We all have to adapt at times - so I guess I would survive.
However, my two daughters and my grandchildren seem obvious. Also
music, books and my blusher and earrings. Is that more than six?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People in my life, my work, politics and how I can make the most of
the next few years. I also love to notice and appreciate my
immediate surroundings when I'm out walking.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends having a drink and something to eat or at
home enjoying my own nice food - maybe a sweet treat, a glass of
wine and a bit of television.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm quite an open person but don't feel very willing to commit to
this one just now... here's a tip though. I'm slightly sensitive
about my hair, so don't ask any questions about it on first
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open to seeing how we get on and would like to meet up at
some point. If you are prepared to be honest and you are not too
closed to new adventures. I am looking for commitment but realise
that only comes with time and effort. I do expect honesty from the
start though. Please try not to say you will phone me if you don't
want to and please try not to say you had a nice time if you
didn't. I am flexible and adventurous. Are you?
