I'm fit and active, like to have challenges and goals and i'm passionate about things I care about. Confident(ish), but in a quiet way and not easily offended..yet i'm sensitive...is that a contradition? I prefer to observe rather than being in the thick of things. I can be silly, serious when need be and hopefully interesting company. I believe I have a lot to offer the right (lucky) man haha. With 3 grown up children and a career in a social work team, hopefully I have a flexible attitude to life and can see things from others' points of view. Work is only a part of my life and evenings and weekends are my own to enjoy, walking, a little running, cycling, reading, family and friends, gardening, charity shops, local music, places of interest....loads more really, which you can find out if I've piqued your interest a little bit!
There has to be some 'chemistry' but for me that really is more to do with emotional intelligence and those indefinable quirky things we all have, much more than looks. If you also have good manners and kindness, an inquisitive mind and a sense of adventure and fun, then... happy days!
I'm pretty independent and happy in my own company.... well not all the time otherwise I wouldn't be on here. So it would be lovely to share some of my life and interests with someone special, to make plans together and share life's ups and downs.
Listening - communication is so important, I listen to what people say, and show an interest. Hopefully that's important to you too.
Music - that overused phrase "eclectic taste in music".
food/drink - chocolate, tea, banana bread, my excellent salads
