In Her Own Words

About her

I can be fun, kind and affectionate. My friends would describe me as funny, clever and huggy! I enjoy music, reading, quizzes, word games, comedy and history, especially ancient. I enjoy crosswords (cryptic and general knowledge) and love the English language in all its idiosyncrasy. I also enjoy learning other languages - I speak some French, and have smatterings of Latin, Greek (classic) and Spanish. In fact, I love to learn about nearly anything - and enjoy people who can teach me new things.

I play piano and organ, flute and recorders, plus I'm really bad at ukulele but can't helping loving it! I used to sing, but problems with my vocal cords have stopped that, unfortunately. I like a wide variety of music, from Mozart and Grieg through to The Buzzcocks and Sia.

My 'children' will all be away at University from this autumn, and I'm beginning to think that life might feel a little empty. I have a lot of love to give, and I'd like to see whether there's anyone who might like some of it! This could just be at friendship good-people-to-chat-to level, but could be more, depending on how it goes. I'm nervous about the idea of the latter, but also a little hopeful.

'Work hard and play hard' is probably my outlook, but that does not mean nightclubs and noise! I prefer being able to talk a little too.

About her ideal match

I like people who are kind and interesting, who can make me both laugh and think. I like people who bring out the happy side of myself.

Chatting with my friend a while back, we listed qualities we would like in a partner - intelligence, affection, humour, kindness, honesty, faithfulness, calm, respect, communication, preferably a little geekiness! - and decided that perhaps we might as well be looking for unicorns. I would like to think that this is not a hopeless quest, and that there could be a unicorn out there prepared to take me on!
