In Her Own Words

About her

I have confidence that there is someone out there who will appreciate my many good qualities and with whom a growing friendship will enhance both our lives (eternal optimist,) However, I do need someone who will meet me halfway. Having said that, with the right person I can be quiet for hours just watching the sunset or both doing our own thing - together. I am a loyal and reliable friend, have an irrepressible bubble of laughter inside that bursts out whenever my sense of the ridiculous is triggered. I enjoy reading, craftwork, ( I am quite skilled at textile crafts) theatre and museums but have no time for soaps or reality TV.... I really would prefer to watch paint dry! I am happy to tramp over moors or beaches with someone but anyone sporty would be sadly disappointed at my lack of interest.

I usually dress on the smart/casual side of things but out of work tend to go a bit alternative with long skirts or baggy (but classy) trousers. I do own jeans but track suit bottoms or shorts just don't figure in my wardrobe at all. I can brush up nicely when I want to, just don't expect it on a daily basis as it is not a priority for me.

An natural optimist, my outlook has been tempered by the cynicism of age but still wins out most times...

For those in the know, I am a Myers Briggs INTJ and mensan - if I had been around in the 1600s I would probably have been burnt as a witch, as it is I will probably end up as a mad cat lady !

About her ideal match

My ideal companion ..... someone to laugh with who would accept me as I am without trying to fit me into a box. Someone to be quiet with... .. someone to light up my life and turn black and white into technicolour by sharing a smile. ... who would not be intimidated by my practicality or intelligence, (I can put up my own shelves, thank-you - and don't suffer fools, gladly or otherwise) and would be able to discuss the books they read and share an appreciation of some of the same authors (particularly Pratchett, Gaiman or Aaronovitch) as well as showing interest in exhibitions & museums we could visit on occasions. They would be someone who could keep my respect and have interests and hobbies of their own but enjoy sharing some of them.

IMPORTANT. I would really like to find someone to make life worth the effort - to dress up for, to buy silly things for/with and to be able to look forward to spending time with outside work and the immediate family that take so much of my time. (My daughter died tragically young and I support her husband with their 3 small children and the current plan is to move in full time once I retire). I love them all dearly but need to be more than just a Nanna - I need a life too, preferably whilst I can still enjoy it!
