But I also enjoy women's company anyway, and I'm quite interested by the idea of meeting someone who's virtually a complete stranger (though we'd obviously have had some sort of a chat first). I think it could be quite exciting, even if it turns out we've nothing much in common - nothing ventured nothing gained.
This is the first time I've ever tried internet dating, so I've no idea how much to put in here, but I'll work on the basis of brief is best and leave it at that.
It's not all work though. I'm fairly outdoorsy, and I suppose my main hobby is cycling, though I'm a bit of a wimp and try to avoid hills! I also love to travel, and manage to fit in quite a bit, both weekends away and longer trips.
I'd describe myself as pretty happy overall, but like most people I suppose I do wonder at times if I'd be happier in a `proper' relationship.
Drinking wine, though I should be after the years of practice I've put in.
Drawing. I used to do quite a lot, and regret letting it slip. I'm hoping to get back to it.
My job (and I damn well should be, the hours I've put into it!)
Movies – I’m quite a romantic, and my favourite film without doubt is Casablanca, which I must have seen 20 times. But I enjoy the cinema and go every few weeks. My funniest film ever was and still is Life of Brian, even though I practically know it off by heart. And Pulp Fiction - I love the dance sequence to Teenage Wedding.
Musical tastes are a bit like my reading – varied. I love the more romantic type of opera, and I often take in a trip to the local opera when I'm travelling. I went to the Verona Opera Festival a couple of years ago and it was brilliant (Italy's probably my favourite country, which made it even better).
Food. Well I hate sprouts and cauliflower. Other than that I enjoy most types of food, but as I've got older I've realised I prefer simple but high quality food to elaborate restaurant confections and all the pretension that goes with it.
My favourite food of all time is salt baked dorado, which I have every year at Juan y Andrea, a restaurant in Formentera that I visit at least once a year - http://www.juanyandrea.com/en/

How I would rather be somewhere other than in my office, particularly when the sun's shining.
Or maybe if you're just an attractive and interesting woman looking to meet someone different.
