In Her Own Words

About her

I'm a psychologist - 'self-employed' is so vague! - and a widow, with three lovely sons. Although I've got a grown up job, and indeed a grown up family, I still feel in many ways like a girl, and 'irreverent', 'fun' and 'youthful' are all words my friends came up with for me. But I also have an attentive, thoughtful, rather analytical side. Obviously I'm 'interested in people', given my job - and in fact my previous job, in qualitative research (exploring motivations via focus groups and depth interviews). I love literature and the theatre, as well as the other arts; music moves me hugely. I'm interested in the 'School of Life' fields of philosophy/psychology/spirituality - and in current affairs. I'm a keen walker, daily on Hampstead Heath when in London, but also further afield - countryside, hills and sea. I go frequently to France and Italy, but love other parts of Europe too, and have recently, for specific reasons, ventured to China and New Zealand, and had great times.... but I miss being part of a couple, both at home and when travelling. Ceroc dancing is a fairly recent passion - and I love music generally, from rock to requiems. I'd say I was quite a sensual and physically demonstrative person. My sons have all grown up to be affectionate huggers, which pleases me.

About her ideal match

I'm keen not to be too prescriptive, but I'd hope a partner would be curious, open-minded, intelligent, and active. Someone I could discuss anything with, from the micro to the macro, and who is capable of irreverence. I guess nearly everyone says this, but sharing culture, travel, the outdoors, and home time too are all important. I like cooking (risotto a favourite), eating and drinking. I think I'd find it hard to have a relationship with someone who never read a book. In this new and potentially exciting empty-nest phase of life, I'd be very open to being introduced to different interests/places/passions, Generous, mutual physical affection is important. Sulking and touchiness are big turn-offs, and I'd like to be able to put any subject on the table.

What Her Friends Say

Jill said...

Clare is an exceptional woman. We have known each other since school and I am lucky enough to count her as one of my best friends. In person, she is alluring, youthful and fun, whilst also possessing a sharp intellect and an enquiring mind. Conversations with Clare are never dull; she is not only interesting, but interested too, and time passes quickly in her company. She is erudite and stimulating, a loyal and dependable friend, and she has a wonderfully pragmatic, but optimistic, approach to life. She is equally at home on the dance floor, tramping in the rain across the heath, taking in the sights of Rome, or bodyboarding in Cornwall. Truly a woman to enjoy life with.
