Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please don't contact me if you live outside the UK.....thank
I'm fit and active, like to have challenges and goals and i'm
passionate about things I care about. Confident(ish), but in a
quiet way and not easily offended..yet i'm sensitive...is that a
contradition? I prefer to observe rather than being in the thick of
things. I can be daft at times, serious when need be and hopefully
interesting company. I believe I have a lot to offer the right
(lucky) man haha. With 3 grown up children and a career in a social
work team, hopefully I have a flexible attitude to life and can see
things from others' points of view. Work is only a part of my life
and evenings and weekends are my own to enjoy cycling, walking,
reading, family and friends, gardening, charity shops, places of
interest....loads more really, which you can find out if I've
piqued your interest a little bit!
There has to be some 'chemistry' but for me that really is more to
do with emotional intelligence and those indefinable quirky things
we all have, much more than looks. If you also have good manners
and kindness, an inquisitive mind and a sense of adventure and fun,
then we may be onto something.
I'm pretty independent and happy in my own company.... well not all
the time otherwise I wouldn't be on here. So it would be lovely to
share some of my life and interests with someone special, to make a
few plans together and share life's ups and downs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working hard. I have 3 grown up children - 1 in Oz so I try to plan
a trip every year or two. I like learning new things and have
studied through work and also completed a counselling course. Love
cycling - I've cycled the Leeds/Liverpool canal, the coast to coast
and a couple of 100 milers. I also love walking
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Observing - so if you've added 2" to your height I'll notice! And
if your dad turns up to meet me and not that hot guy in your
pic...i'll notice that too.
Listening...I listen to what people say, and show an interest.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really don't know....I'm tall? and slim? visual things I guess
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I love reading and always have one on the go.
Music - that overused phrase "eclectic taste in music".
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
food/drink - chocolate, tea, banana bread, my excellent salads
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
If and when I can afford to work less and start to spend more time
doing doing what I want to do.
Internet dating profiles....Well I don't spend a LOT of time
thinking about this, but I wonder is it better to politely reply
to, or ignore a message if you don't think you will get on with
that person. And if someone watches soaps, why would that be a deal
breaker for some guys?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
