In Her Own Words

About her

Friends and family say I'm thoughtful, warm, funny, creative, curious, surprising, insightful and clever. Also, they say I'm remarkably young looking given my astonishingly great age of 55. How on earth did I get to 55? Clearly, I have wonderful friends! I am also quite self-sufficient ... perhaps too much so which can make it hard to get close to me at times.

At heart I think of myself as an artsy person but I write about science and tech for a living (written for the Economist, Guardian, the Independent amongst other publications and am currently researching a book about what computer science tells us about human nature). I am very interested in opera (I really, really, really like opera), theatre, art, museums, music, and literature.

Privately educated. Degree is in physics (although it's a lifetime ago since I was juggling scary equations).

Popular culture: fan of Fargo, Veep, The Thick of it, Kllling Eve, Fleabag, The Crrown, and … I can't give up the Archers (that mix of mundanity and madness always draws me back in).

Books on hand: Borges' Labyrinths, Gladwell's What the Dog Saw and Blink. Zinsser's On Writing Well (always need some help...), Woolf's The Waves, and Yates' The Art of Memory.

Bored by football, deeply dislike rice-pudding.

Music matters a great deal - I play the piano and violin including playing in local chamber orchestra.I also draw and make things if suitably inspired. Terrifyingly competitive scrabble player.

I have two delightful dogs (whippets) who I walk 5 or 6 miles every day, I also trail run once a week, and do high intensity interval training. Sounds exhausting on paper. I guess it means if you're not reasonably active then it's not going to work. Btw, how to judge this site's weird 'body' categories? I've decided 'athletic (size 10, run around a lot..). Not sure really.

About her ideal match

I'm looking for someone clever, kind, someone as intensely curious about the world as I am, and also someone culturally quite sophisticated. But with all that, you would need to be young at heart with a pretty silly sense of humour. I am as happy spending a week exploring museums in Florence as I am wandering across fields with dogs to a local pub. I need both kinds of things. Deal breakers? Hmmm - far more than I would care to admit. Chemistry is essential - physical and intellectual - it's strangely indefinable, hard to find, but one knows when it's there ... and when it's not.
Maths changes In a great relationship i.e. one + one = three or four or even five on a good day! I've experienced that and would love to again.

I'm busy with work and quite recently out of a long relationship so I'm finding my way a bit with this (apologies in advance). If any of the above strikes a chord, message me.

Deal breakers:
Anyone looking for a casual fling - don't bother getting in touch.
