In Her Own Words

About her

Friends would describe me as a loyal and hardworking, resilient person, with a very good sense of humour. Work colleagues would say that I have a strong dense of duty and compassion mixed with loyalty. I would add to that that my attention to detail makes me a bit of a perfectionist. I have had an interesting career that has taken me to places around the world that I would never have imagined.
Aside from my day job in the NHS, I play the viola regularly in a local symphony orchestra, as well as occasionally for local choral society performances. I enjoy my garden and also cooking, more recently trying to master the art of sourdough bread - still perfecting the art of that but its reached being edible!
I live in a pretty part of UK and the recent times has made me explore more of the walks around the area. I like my house and have made it into my home over the last few years and have found skills I did't know I had.
I enjoy reading and usually have a book on the go and several waiting to be read. My favourite reads are books with a historical context though can be fiction based on fact, which is a pleasant distraction from the research, technical papers and various policies that I have to read at work.
Cats or dogs? I have had cats when I've lived somewhere where it is safe for them. I currently have 2 very faithful cats who make up my household. I don't mind dogs but I've never had one in my life. I have no children, hence the view that my furry friends are my household.
My outlook for life is now optimistic. I've had some tough times that I have come through, though my confidence at times has been knocked but know that things can only get better. I'm not good at 'selling' myself but I hope that this small insight would want someone to get to know me as I am.

About her ideal match

The person I would like to meet should definitely have a sense of humour and want to share time and conversations. A good listener and someone who is willing to engage in a discussion are attributes I would look for in another. I'd like to share activities with someone that we would both enjoy and I'd hope they'd introduce me to the things they enjoyed and the people that they have in their life.
I've traveled a bit but there is still a lot of this country and the world to explore. I'd like to share that interest with someone and maybe plan to explore new places with them. The shared memory is always greater and I love being with others when I am somewhere new.
I'm not too concerned about distances and I'd hope that anyone who wanted to know me better would not see that as an obstacle.
