In Her Own Words

About her

I have been a widow for six years after 33 years of a happy marriage. For the past three years Charlie my rescue dog who is about 4 years old has been my most trusted and loveable companion. Originally from UK I have lived for many years in South Africa and have travelled extensively throughout the years. In 2003 my husband and I moved to the UK where we lived near Southampton. His sudden passing several years later left me in shock and three years ago I decided to return to Cape Town. I am ready for a new direction in my life. I have two sons living in London and regularly visit them.
My working life has been very varied and I now work part time from home giving me the freedom to pursue other passions. I love my art classes (not very good), walking/hiking, visiting historical places of interest, writing, gardening, basic DIY, cooking (certainly not Cordon Bleu but you won't starve) ... but will be at my happiest, scoffing down cream teas.
I like to think of myself as positive, practical and down to earth. I may be rather shy initially until I get to know you. I prefer socialising with small groups of people rather than large parties, just LOVE surprises and doing on-the-spur of the moment things. I am probably a bit too impulsive at times so really need someone to keep me in check ...

About her ideal match

My ideal person must be kind, fun, considerate, patient, have good old-fashioned manners/values, and is a wizard with IT/computers ... I am clueless and always in panic mode when something goes wrong. He must also be a non-smoker, moderate/social drinker, enjoys travelling, be active and ideally an outdoorsy type person ... definitely not a couch potato. Most importantly he must love animals - especially dogs. I would love to meet/correspond with someone of similar interests.
