My self-summary
I work in travel writing, which sounds like fun, but the travelling has made my social life a bit stop-and-start over the last 10 years. I've spent a lot of time wandering round foreign countries on my own; and although I'm pretty happy amusing myself, I do think that life is better when it's shared with an accomplice.

It sometimes takes me a while to get to know people, as I am quite a private person (when not filled with Guinness); but the people I love, I love for life. Of course I have my bad points; but on the bright side, I am intelligent, loyal, trustworthy, empathetic, non-judgemental, and have a dark and ridiculous sense of humour.

My wishlist for you: I’d like to meet someone with a brain in their head; who is kind, calm and collected; who has a positive outlook and is interested in the world; who can communicate honestly and openly; who has the ability to laugh when things don't go to plan; and who can cope with the fact that I like to spend a lot of time on my own!

Some stuff that makes me happy: scuba diving; skiing; reading; my Open University course; the Forbidden Corner; the Yorkshire Sculpture Park; walking in mountains or by the sea; Jack Handey; guinea pigs; spending time with friends and with my niece and nephew.

Things that are no fun: arrogant people; painting windows; realising that we will never leave our solar system.
