My self-summary
I am a bit quiet sometimes until you get to know me. I have a passion for history and enjoy reading history books for pleasure, particularly anything related to military history. I also enjoy historical fiction, fantasy and technothrillers. I also like chess and miniature wargaming.

The rest? Well, you will just have to find that out for yourself...

I am Caring, Educated, and Quiet
What I’m doing with my life
Learning but never as much as I would like to know.

Voluntary Work. I am heavily involved in voluntary work.
I’m really good at
Laundering my mobile phone. My late phone died this way May 2012. But you have to laugh about it as it was really quite funny.

Occasional culinary thrombosis (better known as being a clot in the kitchen) and extinguishuing small grill/frying pan fires.

History. I love history.

Being a "Kitten Parent" My cat had5 kittens 17 Decemer 2012
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look younger than I am. That's what they tell me anyway. I am also quite shy at first.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Lord of the Rings, Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy. Anything historical Greek, Roman or Medieval are eras I particularly enjoy

Game of Thrones


I enjoy historical films (see above), sci fi, drama and comedies. No favourites as such. It depends how I feel at the time.

Not really a movie but I loved the BBC comedy series Coupling and have been known to slip qoutes into general conversation.

Game of Thrones


Well, I eat a lot of things but I particularly enjoy chicken and duck. I also have a bit of a chocalate addiction thanks to my Dad who used to work for Thorntons until he retired a few years ago. Let's just say that while growing up I had plenty of opportunitity to "help" him with his work :-)


I like all sorts but particularly enjoy 60's 70's and 80's. Particular favourites are Elvis, Belinda Carlisle, Madonna, Abba, Olivia Newton John and Debbie Gibson. Sometimes I also enjoy Country particularly artists such as Tammy Wynette. She had a really lovely singing voice which is great to listen to when trying to relax. Yes, I know! :-)
Six things I could never do without
My books because I am a prolific reader and history buff

My adopted cat Kitty. But sher can't be a girlfriend substitute forever :-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
December 2012 Right now the cute kittens my cat sprung on me
I thought she was getting fatbut didnot realiseshe was pregnantuntilkittens started coming

Life, the universe and everything. I told you about the Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy thing :-)


My voluntary work and how to make this a better place

Social Justice. Which is quite important to me as it is often in such short supply these days.
On a typical Friday night I am
Curled up watching the TV or with a good book Or out and about if I feel like it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I hate tomato sauce. /Until I was about 5 or 6 I couldn't get enough of it. Until one meal which, as I recall was a cumberland sausage and chips. Tomato sauce would not come out of the bottle so I gav it a good hard tap and it all came out. For some reason it reminded me of blood and I was completely traumatised by the thought . I have never eaten it since"

I survived school bullying but developed a bad stammer which is an occasional problem but very rare these days.

"Laundered" my mobile recently (May 2012) It was a very hot day, had been out to the market. Got back home and decided to do my laundry. And forgot to check my trouser pockets. Let's just say my mobile was very clean and also very dead. You've got to laugh. It was however a cheap phone which can be replaced easily enough.
You should message me if
You love cats and want to discuss cute kitties

You like history, books and consider yourself a bit of a geek You are a nice, caring person. It can help if you are a bit of a geek sometimes :-)

You are honest. Honesty is important to me as I have had my heart broken on more than one occasion. If you are not truthful about your relationship status from the start I will find out sooner or later and then it will be very hard for me to trust you again or with greater things in the future.

Don't message me if you are a Corbyn supporter or hold other Far Left Political views. We won't get on. I only want to date women whose political views are representative of the center left or center right. Far right political views are equally unacceptable
The two of us
