In Her Own Words

About her

I’m a bookish Londoner and committed European, with a thing about the sea. Empathetic, intelligent and affectionate, I take life seriously but am equally serious about having fun and making up for lost opportunities. I love the wilds, but am right now rooted in the city and long for us all to be able to take the world off pause and immerse ourselves in the crowd again.

Like many of us here, there has been some re-modelling in recent years (not in the plastics department, you understand!). Actively pulling the plug on an unhappy marriage and making up lost time in my career took some resolve. And the best thing I have learned? That when you start to say ‘yes’ to opportunities rather than no, the years tend to fall away. 23 again? Surprisingly often.

Some of my favourite things: leaping the waves in a bracing sea; hanging the washing in the garden on a sunny day; an insightful novel, an absorbing film, a thought-provoking play; talking about those things; giggling; sailing in a good breeze; growing things from seed; cake; Bach, Beethoven, Nils Frahm, Agnes Obel, Radios 3,4 (life-long allegiance to the Archers sorely tested atm) and 6; getting brown shoulders; the warm body of another; feet in an icy stream after descending a mountain; seabirds, garden birds, owls.

Apart from sailing and summer swimming, it took a long time for me to recognise that well-being is not only to be found in the next improving book. I now keep mind and body in shape with regular yoga and recently have taken to open-water swimming, where I am in my element. Totally thrilling, the feeling of resilience that it brings. Also an experienced gardener, and a novice guitar player, amongst other things.

Oh, and I’m trying hard to temper my romantic idealism. Hence the username, and hence why you’ll often hear me say, ‘Everybody loves the sound of the train in the distance, everybody thinks it’s true’ (Paul Simon)

About her ideal match

Plenty of fish? Pirhanas and flounders need not apply :) Other than that, if you are a kind, open-minded grown-up who is in tune with the outdoors and can tolerate an art gallery, then it would be nice to get to know you. I am looking for a genuine connection, to feel at ease but also to dare a little with someone who isn't afraid of change. Self-awareness, a youthful outlook and a good sense of humour are more important to me than appearance.

It would be nice to meet someone who values good food and the pleasures of cooking. And who isn’t above sharing the washing up, listening to the radio. Long walks at the weekend and when things open up again, adventures with tents or boats. Music, theatre, cinema … Nose in a book? mais oui, and do tell me all about it, plus the news and comment I haven't had time to read. Watching sport is not my thing but I understand the appeal for others: the only red line for me is Formula 1; like air-conditioning, cruise ships and Love Island, it should be banned.
