Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am British but I grew up mostly in Belgium. The beautiful French
language is my native tongue... bonjour, cheri! Like most French
women, I appreciate beautiful things, food, wine and company. But
I'm equally at home with the simpler things in life. A walk in the
country with my friend and her dog, a chat with a good friend in a
coffee shop, sitting on the beach watching the world go by.
I'm an artist. That's very important to me and I'll say more about
that later. I love to travel and often visit friends and family
abroad. One of the things that's important to me is spending time
in the sun, but I do miss having someone special who might share
some of these good things with me.
Self-promotion is not something that comes easily for me, so I
asked my friend how she would describe me. This is what she said:
'Warm-hearted, generous, always ready to see the other person's
side, loyal', and she says what she most likes is: 'You're good at
embracing everybody's ideas and not leaving anybody out.' It is
lovely to be described thus, but I do admit to a few, perhaps
irritating, foibles - I don't particularly like housework, I can be
a bit sensitive when people are rude and I buy too many shoes!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is pretty busy overall. I moved to East Sussex a few years
ago and it was the best move I ever made. I'm really enjoying
getting to know new people down here, but I'm mindful not to
neglect my lovely friends in Europe and London. I'm OK on my own
but I get a lot out of being and doing things with other people.
This has led me to get involved in local projects, including an
amateur drama group.
In the last eighteen months, I've been able to spend more time on
my art; discovering the wonders of oil painting, working in clay
and extending my experience of charcoal drawing. Last summer, I ran
a very successful art workshop with a friend and did it again this
summer. It's been a real gift for me to have this time to do the
things that give me so much pleasure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I can say the following with some modesty: I'm a good
hostess; I'm a pretty good cook; making things; basic DIY; I'm not
easily disheartened and my loyalty to friends means that I'm still
in touch people I've known for many years.

Anything resonates... I'd love to share life with a great guy, who
doesn't necessarily need to enjoy everything I do, although it
would be good if some of it interests him. Also, someone who is
young at heart would be really lovely. If I could choose one thing,
someone with a generous spirit would be top of my list. In
addition, someone who enjoys a laugh. I'm not looking for a fling
or for somebody who lives so far away that it would be difficult to
