Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok I've read some of the profiles on various sites and they all
describe lovely people who all seem to keep fit, love cooking,
enjoy being retired and want to meet an equally perfect woman who
will be their soul mate! Well I prefer being honest - you won't
find that 'perfect' woman in me! The idea of trying to build a
relationship on my trying to be an ideal woman or my partner trying
to be an ideal man is something I really can't be bothered
Here is some of the truth about me,,,,the rest you would only find
out by getting to know me if you want to:
- Like a lot of people I have emotional scars and baggage so some
things may become unexpectedly a rough ride
- I don't lose my temper often but when I do it is
- I hate being patronised or told what to do all the time - I am a
competent independent person who has lived on my own for a long
time and I'm pretty good at living my life
- I'm a chatterbox
- I need my own space and will object if anyone tries to invade
- I'm a diet controlled diabetic, which means I need to eat
regularly and I'm pretty picky about what I can eat
- I love my job and anyone who tries to get between me and my work
will come of second best
- I'm 57 that means my body has been in a few wars and is not
perfect - in other words I look reasonably good for my age but that
age is 57
- my adult son comes first - if he needs me - which is not very
often I did a good job of bringing him up - but if he does then I'm
- my cat comes a close second - sorry!
There is some good stuff too:
- I care deeply for those I value
- I will negotiate and discuss ways of building bridges and
bypasses round or over the things in a relationship that may not
work first time
- I maintain myself so if I'm high maintenance its nothing for you
to worry about
- I do not expect or want to be with someone every minute of every
day - I think a relationship is more interesting if both partners
bring different things to it
- I am a very good listener,; I do not automatically give advice, I
assume that the other person is capable of working out what they
need/want to do
- I value emotional intelligence, the ability to discuss
differences and a willingness to both learn and teach

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time for a local charity and absolutely love it. The
work is very varied and challenging so I am kept on my toes with
little time to be bored!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking, gardening and trying to make people feel good about

I don't think most people do notice me! I'm only 5 foot tall!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I read a lot! Any Terry Pratchett is a winner. Mercedes
Lackey, David Eddings, Anne McCaffrey and Jean M Auel. In fact
quite a lot of science fiction and science fantasy authors,
although I will read just about anything.
Movies - fairly lightweight stuff really
Middle of the road type music - in other words I listen to Radio
Not a great foodie, I like well cooked and presented food but
definitely don't like the exotic!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My son, my cat, my friends, my books, my moisturiser and my health.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people will read a long, detailed summary of a personality and
then send a message saying 'Hi how r u'. At least punctuate and
spell it properly but personally I prefer it if someone asks a
question that requires more than a one word answer. I filled in all
this stuff to make it easier to start a conversation not just to
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Curled up on the sofa with my cat and a book. Not very exciting but
I enjoy my own company just maybe not quite so much of it as I have
at the moment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That bad spelling/grammar irritates me! Especially if it is me who
has made the grammatical or spelling error.
