In Her Own Words

About her

Hello!
As an old-fashioned romantic, I find the concept of internet dating tricky but I am trying to modernise! I believe that there is a plan for everyone and a perfect other half for us all... some are just a little more elusive than others. My tendency to see the best in people has resulted in a few detours and u-turns along the way, and I'd rather be happily single than unhappy alone. However, being an eternal optimist I have never given up on my dream of a happy ever after joyfully in love with a lifelong soulmate.
In spite of my traditional views of relationships and family, my own situation is far from conventional and my amazing son is everything to me.
I have a global outlook, and living and working overseas has made me even more passionate about cultural and creative diversity. I value tolerance, empathy, passion about what you do, not taking yourself too seriously, a sense of wonder and kindness. I would hope that my friends would describe me as possessing all these qualities; as well as being sociable, bubbly, outspoken, resilient and funny. (Not all of these are what I expected them to say!)
Since moving back to the UK from Australia, I have spent my time making new friends, reconnecting with family, teaching and doing voluntary community work. I enjoy reading, gardening, baking and home decoration, theatre and live music, as well as long walks with the dog, and resuming Roller Derby training. I adored the ocean, river and beachside living of our outdoor lives in Australia and hope to return in the future.

About her ideal match

My ideal man is pretty heroic - loyal, kind, honourable and funny - passionate about your interests, loving and romantic, hard working, in touch with your emotions and able to deeply empathise with others.
Whilst you have strong personal/ethical values, you don't take yourself too seriously, you're a 'glass half-full' person with a happy disposition who can see the joy in life and the good in others!
In a relationship, you want a best friend as much as a partner and lover. You are not threatened by an independent and intelligent woman who is able to look after herself, but you still want to value your role as a family man, protector and provider. As someone who believes in the happiness, fun and responsibility of fatherhood, you are man enough to be a dad to both your own child/children and mine. Someone who is judgmental, intolerant, closed-minded or who doesn't believe in family, faithfulness and commitment is not for me. An openness to adventure, travel, music, community and spirituality are all important.
