I am lucky enough to have a job that I love and am totally committed to - it is a big part of my life. I also have a love of the outdoors. I get a deep sense of nourishment from being in beautiful places - sea, river and countryside, and always wish I could spend more time outside. I equally enjoy curling up in front of an open fire watching a great film or drama, reading or listening to music, as well as going to the cinema or theatre. I love the conversation that arises from watching an interesting film, drama or from reading a novel or the Sunday papers. I feel confident in different settings and enjoy dressing up for dinner as well as being in relaxed clothing for a country walk. But if I had to choose, I enjoy smaller groups where it is easy to converse and I think there is nothing better than an excellent country pub. Increasingly, I find myself eating very healthily, an almost vegan diet - I do still eat meat, but rarely because good health is a priority to me
What I am doing with my life
Walking and skipping are my outdoor pursuits of choice because of the opportunities it brings to be in beautiful places, spend time with great people and develop fitness. I am member of the National Trust and really enjoy visiting different properties and gardens. Life is about making the most of opportunities and laughing wherever possible!

You ultimately share interests and values with me; I am open to new interests, but would prefer to meet someone who enjoys the outdoors. Honesty, integrity and intelligence are important. A shared interest in a healthy lifestyle is essential - I would never consider dating a smoker. Having a passion for something - whether it is a job or a hobby - is an attractive quality. I enjoy discussing current affairs, politics etc. It is really important to feel relaxed and able to be oneself with a partner. I am a very reflective person; however, I am not perfect, but I do my best to be the best I can, and I would hope a partner would aspire to the same and that we would want the best for each other. Spontaneity is a lovely quality - capturing the moment on a beautiful evening or early morning, making the most of possibilities. Friendship is central to any successful relationship and a good sense of humour!
