In Her Own Words

About her

I am an artist who used to teach (I am still recovering) and love anything or anybody with a little quirkiness or eccentricity. My sense of humour can be self-deprecating and often very silly - I believe we all need a good laugh every day to keep us sane (otherwise what's the point?) I enjoy the serious and philosophical stuff too, though I can get a bit carried away when the mood takes me - I'm outspoken about stuff that I think matters. My idea of a perfect night in? Classy film, great food, good wine and stimulating company.

I'm passionate about the arts - film, theatre, ballet, opera, dance, literature and of course painting and drawing, which is what I do myself. My musical tastes are eclectic - I grew up with the music of the 70s and 80s so obviously this will always be close to my heart (though I can't listen to it now cos it hurts!) - I love masses of stuff, from Billie Holliday to Paloma Faith, Satie to The Spaghetti Western Orchestra, Mahler to the Threepenny Opera. (Chuck in a little Doors, Bowie or Andreas Scholl and I'll be happy for hours)

I have been separated now for 8 or 9 years (not sure, it's a blur) I have a son of 33 who has his own place and a daughter, 20, who currently lives with me but will be going to uni in October. Not sure whether to kick my heels or weep in sorrow - both I think, if I'm honest.....but it's my time now so bring it on!

About her ideal match

I know there's no such thing,( you'll know when you meet, you'll "click" or you won't etc etc, blah,blah,blah) but that's what they've asked for soooo...he would be a little unconventional & quirky, in personality and dress (no suits!); intelligent, articulate and silly (must have laughter lines) He would of course be passionate about music of all kinds and an avid reader. If he's into anything arty, enjoys talking and holding hands, even better and if he melts at the sight of a kitten, then I'll be lost....joking, but must be an animal-lover.

All this is my "ideal" match, but as there's no such thing, if you're a nice, interesting, genuine person and you like a giggle, then get in touch.
