In Her Own Words

About her

Returned following self imposed exile from this site. After meeting someone I liked, we explored the possibilities of a settled relationship through the last year, but have come to the sad conclusion that we are not compatible. So here I am again….trying to remain hopeful.
Reassured by a girlfriend that I still look like my photos, I have added 2 recent ones.

I work part-time and enjoy it, but would retire completely given the right circumstances; that would be a relationship that is fulfilling. Born in the West country I now live 0.5 hrs from Bath. Previously I worked in London and retained a room in a friend's house so I could stay overnight when visiting friends, concerts and galleries.
I have travelled widely and lived in the Middle East for some years. Meals are a universal point of social interaction that a shared liking for a Mediterranean style diet would be helpful.

My hair was blond but now displays a variety of natural streaks! It’s long but I wear it up most of the time. I dress well, and hope I always look appropriately turned out.
I like working in my large garden, which I have been grateful for recently. I enjoy reading: recently East West Street by Phillipe Sands and the Ratline. I love Chamber Music and went to the Wigmore Hall frequently, also the wonderful Wiltshire Music Centre in Bradford on Avon, which is close to my home. I am interested in all forms of art, modern as well as classical.

I value my friends and am grateful for their love over some difficult years. I have been divorced for 9 years although separated for much longer, and am heartily sick of being alone.
Socially I prefer small gatherings. I claim to be a person of integrity and hope that is justified. I hope to find someone of a similar disposition to share both the delights and the troubles of a life well lived.

As I was unable to have children, it would be nice to meet someone who has already got grandchildren or has the expectation there will be some. I have a good relationship with my stepson and his young family.

About her ideal match

I would like you to be independent minded, cosmopolitan in outlook, have an interest in art, and enjoy classical music.
You would have, or had a career that brought you satisfaction and success. That might have been self employed but not necessarily so. If you are still working, I would like you also to have time to travel and holiday in places of interest.

I hope you would share my love of the countryside, gardens and warm weather, and particularly enjoy walking in the mountains and places with big views. You would also enjoy that which a city has to offer by way of cultural pursuits.
You would have a good sense of humour. You would also be able to listen to and reflect on others' points of view.

If you have a family I hope you would be involved with them, and if divorced not to have too many residual problems.
You would be solvent, emotionally single and in reasonably good health!

If you are a social butterfly we would be unlikely to be a good match; similarly if you are super sporty! Or if you place value on appearances over substance.
