What's important in my life?
The people I love and making sure they are happy and cared for. Sounds pretty basic, but it is something which needs to be taken seriously. I have got children who are increasingly more independent (one just turned 20!) and just need guidance and pointing towards the right choices. Love them more than anything of course, but have to admit (this is where I shuffle my feet, stare at my shoes with a guilty blush on my cheeks) how much I adore my freedom when they are staying with their father for a while.
I guess I am increasingly conscious of the fact that life rushes past.
Therefore I make a point of being hedonistic whenever I can (however, don't think this means I give in to my carnal desires on the spot - as some of you have interpreted this!). I just want to enjoy this wonderful life as much as I can: surrounding myself with the natural world, being engulfed by my favourite music (preferably live - gigs, lots of gigs!), experiencing something totally new. Could be something really adventurous and active or something calm and mind-broadening.
However, my life is hectic and so I also have a desire and a need for "silence." There is a lazy side to me: a book and a beach or sofa can please me just as much. The sheer peacefulness when gazing at the sea from a clifftop can keep me anchored to one spot for hours. I can get quite philosophical.
As for my values and beliefs: honesty, altruism & empathy, independence, peace, tolerance, determination and a desire to be "awe inspired". Not a complete list and probably not even the most important ones. Tolerance must be very high up though. Each of us needs to be who we are. Can't deal with people who are judgemental or always want to change others.
About her ideal match
My ideal match will bring excitement to my life as he will show me the world in ways I have never seen it before. He might possibly love some of the following: music (XFM) and gigs, literature, theatre, exploring, animals, nature and adventure. Surprise me! Open my mind.
If you are a hard businessman who will do anything the job requires you to do, you are not my man. Generosity and kindness need to inspire your everyday life.
If you like cooking and would like to cook for me, that would be fantastic. Michelin star quality? (My cooking is below average...to put it mildly.)
Funny is good, and witty, yes lots of wit please.
Ideally, you are a "man man" with a sensual and a passionate soul. A combination of the way you move, the way you talk, what you say and believe is what will make me go weak at the knees. (I think I'd better stop as I'm starting to sound like Barbara Cartland... not that I read her work of course!)Oh, and tall...so I can still wear heels when I want to.
My ideal match will also realise I am someone who needs time and space. Someone who is possessive with jealous tendencies would not be suitable at all.
I chose "Let's see what happens." This doesn't mean I want to flutter from one guy to another. I do want to meet a soulmate to share experiences with and this might develop into a relationship.
I have done it again. Too many lists... If you want to find out what really matters to me, we will need to communicate one-to-one. Just send me a message. Who knows, something might click, or we might just become gig buddies.
