In Her Own Words

About her

I've lived and worked in three countries and have friends around the world. I love immersing myself in different cultures. I am a committed European (Brexiteers need not apply) and love the laid-back style of continental life -- especially siesta time in southern Europe (see below).

I love listening to classical music and the arts, (ballet, opera, and the decorative arts) but am not averse to more modern genres such as blues and folk-rock. I enjoy designing and making things to wear and things for the home.

I was born with a "Richard III spine" and a further recent accident to my back now makes pain management a sad fact of life. But I do like meandering on the beach, in the countryside, or especially exploring old towns in the UK and in Europe where a good cafe is never too far away. Just returned from a solo trip to Lake Garda and plan to visit Germany in September.

I like my independence and living alone, but because of a family caring commitment can't consider changing location.

After a loving though brief marriage and later happy and fulfilling co-habiting relationships, I also now find I miss having that important special person in my life to share things with. What I understand the Americans categorise as a friendship "with benefits".

About her ideal match

My ideal man should share at least some of my interests (especially the musical ones) and should be willing to open my eyes to new ones, However, in an ideal, world sport should not be one of his overwhelming interests as it bores me rigid -- especially the tribalism of team sports.

He should be an interesting conversationalist and enjoy a spirited discussion, (including politics and religion) though not be too critical and intolerant of others' views if they differ from his own as I admit I can be a little opinionated at times, but deep down really hate disagreements or heated arguments.

My soulmate should be a bon-viveur: appreciate the beauty in both nature and art and enjoy the good things in life: food, drink, travel --- and siestas (often the sexiest time of day).

He should enjoy cooking as much as I do and enjoy trying out different cuisines.

My ideal would be to find a loving friend who lives not too far away for it to be feasible for us to visit each other often; take trips together in the UK and overseas, especially Europe who enjoys old school romance and showing affection in public.

He should enjoy cultural evenings out such as classical orchestral or chamber music concerts, a night at the opera/operetta or the ballet and be happy to dress appropriately for such an evening without complaining (well not too much anyway) even if normally he is only truly comfortable in jeans). But he should also enjoy cuddly evenings in with a good meal and a good bottle of wine,

Walking (meandering) in the countryside or on a beach, and taking time to "smell the roses" would be something he and I could enjoy together, or perhaps visiting a stately or historical pile and garden. Finally, he should enjoy travelling around this country as well as different parts of Europe, but as an independent cultural traveller rather than a tourist on a package tour or (heaven forfend) a cruise.

A deal-breaker would be an ultra-right-wing Brexiteer to whom anything European is total anathema.
