In Her Own Words

About her

A single, but busy and fulfilling, life has become a solitary and somewhat lonely one in lockdown.

I enjoy music of many genres from classical to jazz - but on the whole not pop. Bach, Schubert, Rachmaninov, Leonard Cohen, Madeleine Peyroux, Jaques Brel and so on. Mine would be a wide ranging and very eclectic Desert Island Discs.

I am a skilled needlewoman and cook, but not quite a home body.

I enjoy walking in the countryside (doing a lot of solitary walking at the moment). Try to do three to four miles several times a week, five or six occasionally, and would like to work up to longer distances. Strenuous activities and team sports do not interest me - I was the one standing sulking on the edge of the hockey field at school!

I speak several languages (qualified originally as a secretary/linguist and have used my languages in my work at times). I have always enjoyed travelling in Europe - France, Spain, Italy and Greece are favourites - and I lived for four years in rural France, returning to the UK in 2009.

In the present circumstances my one fixed point in the week is a Latin class via Zoom - have worked up from no knowledge at all to around A level standard over the past five years. In fact language is a major strand in my life and I love word games, wit and good puns.

I cannot imagine a life without books. I read mainly fiction - anything from 18th century to contemporary novels and I find it impossible to specify favourites. I'm also a reader of poetry. But I don't read rubbish or chick lit - life's too short and there's too much good stuff out there.

Amateur theatre has been a big thing in my life for some time now and I have appeared on stage, although my involvement immediately prior to Covid was more in the area of costume production. Since lockdown I find myself doing more and more sewing - rewarding, but lonely.

I would really love to find someone who shares some of my interests, but also perhaps has others he might like to introduce me to.

About her ideal match

I am looking for someone to share things, from special days to everyday. I'm not necessarily looking for someone to live with, but I am looking for a personal, exclusive relationship that goes beyond friendship. Honesty and fidelity are the personal traits I hold to be most important and lack of them was the reason for the break down of my last relationship.

I have been on my own for six years and can cope perfectly well with living alone, but there is a gap that could best be filled by a relationship with an intelligent, young at heart and interesting man.

Are you that person?
