In Her Own Words

About her

I'm originally from London, & grammar school educated in 50/60s. I'm cautious, of a quiet but confident nature, not an extrovert - but I know how to enjoy myself. I am thoughtful, tactile, kind, loyal, caring, open minded & have a good sense of humour. I love theatre, concerts, cinema - I'll go on my own if necessary. Musical tastes very varied - classical, opera, musicals to old pop & rock & I can easily lose myself in reading- which I do often. I like walking, swimming & I've added yoga to keep fit. Love Thai, Chinese, Italian & good English food. I don't have time to be bored - there's always something of interest to see or do. No garden these days - I now live in a flat - but I run the Owner's Association which helps keep me busy.

Behind my quiet exterior lies a sense for adventure & an adrenaline rush now & again !! For years I rode regularly, also trail riding here in UK & abroad. I love driving whether in UK or Europe & tried motor racing twice, scuba diving in UK & abroad, hot air ballooning, & flying. I can add indoor sky diving & now gliding & sailing ! No more looking at 4 walls for me - life is for living ! Slippers and knitting can wait........

So you could say my mantra is 'never say never''. I'm equally at ease at home enjoying the quiet side of life, pottering, a cosy night in, or donning my boots for a tramp across the fields & woods. Divorced & after a very long relationship, I've been on my own for some years. I so miss the companionship & closeness of male company.

I have family & grandchildren who I adore, but feel an emptiness in my personal life. However much I love my family, they have their own lives to lead & I have mine. Be it meeting up for a coffee & chat, a meal or such, I am sure there are lots of lovely people out there to meet & get to know better. It's nice to daydream & imagine what life could be like again with a loving partner as there is so much in life still to enjoy. How very satisfying it would be to share it all with someone else.

About her ideal match

I don't want to be too prescriptive but warmth and a caring attitude, young at heart with a glass half-full attitude to life is important. Life is richer when shared with someone special but having lived on my own for a long time, personal space is important too. Personality & chemistry or a spark are key. If those are there the relationship will flourish. I'd love someone who's happy to hold hands with me and with the ability to be spontaneous and surprise me. Laughter is important too. Lots of it ! Someone who has a wide range of tastes, but not extremes in anything - culturally or sportwise.

Does such a man exist I wonder? Always the optimist - I live in hope and I'm sure he's out there somewhere !! I'm not really a 'lady who lunches' type (well - just occasionally) and I love the company of men. I prefer a clean shaven face, but beards are tolerable. Tattoos and smoking would be a definite no-no for me - sorry guys!

(my photos - Christmas 2017 and all others within the last few months and I'm not photogenic especially with selfies !!)
