I'm mostly looking to get to know a female with an interest in the arts and culture; I enjoy things that are mainstream and alternative, classic and more contemporary. I'd especially love to meet someone with a similar interest in music and films, who also enjoys good food and wine, intelligent and fun conversation, the outdoors and walking.
Love to receive messages from anyone genuine who thinks they might be in some way like-minded.
I've had things difficult in recent years in being a carer for my mum who passed away in early 2014 (I've also done a lot for a sister who's had disabilities). I'm currently doing healthcare work in hoping to eventually get a Graduate Mental Health Worker post.
Love a wide range of music in particularly liking melodic and literate songwriting. Favourites include The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Supremes, Neil Young, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Dusty Springfield, Al Green, Joni Mitchell, Bruce Springsteen, Patti Smith, REM, The Smiths, Prefab Sprout, Crowded House, Depeche Mode, Pulp, Saint Etienne, Tindersticks, The Divine Comedy, Jeff Buckley, Fleet Foxes, The National, Sufjan Stevens, Laura Marling, Cherry Ghost, Angel Olsen, etc. Love watching live music, particularly in small venues.
