In Her Own Words

About her

Hi, I'm a 48 year old woman, still curious, enthusiastic and passionate about what life has to offer. I feel privileged to have experienced some extraordinary moments: drinking mint tea with nomadic tribes in the Sahara at dawn; an invitation to a Touareg wedding; holding the controls of a DC3 over Mauritania; flying a loop-the loop in a Boeing Steerman; seeing elephants, lions and cheetahs in the savannah of Togo. However, the memories I treasure are some of the simplest: the laughter and comradeship of friends after a long walk in the Lake District or a day's sailing in Brittany; an impromptu party on a Norfolk beach in winter; a pub lock-in with friends, music and instruments in Rutland; precious memories of my children growing up; a lover's caress and the hug of a friend. I look forward to what life has still to reveal and hope to be able to experience fully the highs and the lows over whatever time is still granted me.

I have 2 children, a 25 year old boy and a 17 year old girl. My youngest still lives at home but will be off to University soon. I have a wide range of interests, from creative pursuits such as painting (I have a Fine Art degree), to visiting galleries and music venues, to traveling - I have visited around 25 countries in Europe, Africa and America and am off to Madagascar this summer to do a trek and take part in an environmental and community project. I regularly visit France, where I was partly brought up and have family there. I enjoy hiking and the outdoors, and get to the Lake District at least once a year when I feel like a challenge. I recently got into sailing and crewed across the Channel last summer on a 65' pilot cutter, something I am keen to do again, perhaps further afield. I also keep fit regularly doing Yoga and Tai Chi. When not working or enjoying the outdoors, I am happy enjoying a cosy night in with a DVD, a close friend and a nice bottle of wine or having a good meal out in a restaurant. I also enjoy cooking, which is fun with someone else too.

About her ideal match

You will be intelligent, articulate and educated with lots of interests (watching sport on TV doesn't count!), and not take yourself too seriously. You love and live life to the full. I find self-deprecation an attractive quality and prefer it to arrogance. You will put people first, before power and money and will have strong compassionate values. At the same time, you will be flexible and understanding of others' views, as well as be genuine and caring (very important). You are able to communicate your feelings and are sensitive to those of others. You will probably be adventurous, into the outdoors, walking / trekking, sailing or canoeing. You should have traveled a fair bit, be well read and have an open mind when it comes to cultural and philosophical differences. You may speak another language, as I am fluent French. You will probably have been married before or been in a long-term relationship, so appreciate the pitfalls and the highs. You are not bitter and twisted and are prepared to trust again, can love and be loved in return. You have children and this will make you more understanding of mine. Your children should be ideally older, as mine have flown the nest (or just about to). Chemistry is important to me but whilst chemistry is the initial spark, you will understand that the best fires are those that are built slowly and with care in order to burn the longest and warmest, even if they are not the fastest at first. You appreciate the finer things in life and know that an older wine is to be savoured rather than scoffed!

Life is to be enjoyed with another with like-minded goals and ideals! If you meet the above, I hope to hear from you soon!
