In Her Own Words

About her

Academic lawyer/translator loves:
Polyphony, choral music, opera, jazz, Handel, Purcell, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Britten, Kathleen Battle, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Evans, Sarah Vaughan and Dylan; mountains, forests, libraries, Scotland, David Sedaris, Mark Twain, Cervantes, Turgenev, George Elliot, Rohinton Mistry, Somerset Maugham, Barbara Stanwyck, cat’s, dog’s, horses, economics, art, Velazquez, Goya, Rothko, photography, hiking, kayaking, reading, The Guardian, El País, The New York Times, The Economist, SNL, The News Quiz, Glyndebourne, Cambridge Folk Festival, Holland Park Opera, dive bars, greasy-spoon cafes, the Cambridge Backs on a sunny day, Retiro Park in winter. Napping on the sofa with the cat. Talking about current affairs and stuff in general.

Kind, gentle (but opinionated - all academics are), considerate, generous, affectionate and loyal. I speak Spanish, Italian and a smattering of Russian, French, German and Portuguese. I know how to use an electric drill and a chainsaw. I’d like to learn to play the guitar, but I'm old enough to know that I probably never will.

More degrees than is perhaps healthy, but that's what happens when you're naturally curious. Fairly adventurous and have travelled widely. Taught in places such as Angola, Ghana and Burma, but not so keen on planes anymore because of environment. I take things slowly these days, having lost my much-loved husband over two years ago. I have many women friends, but I miss a male perspective.

Allergic to:
sports (except cricket), conservatism, religion. Don't like cruises (awful and disastrous for environment) or beach holidays (just plain boring, unless you swim with seals).

About her ideal match

He would be kind, funny, gentle, intellectual, easy-going, considerate of others, should like animals and independent women but have strong opinions of his own. Unafraid of a woman with a lot of letters after her name. Interested in current affairs, comfortable in his own skin; he wouldn’t refer to women as “ladies” or “girls”, or feel the need to impress.

Would know how to use the Oxford Comma.

Dealbreakers for me: tories, Brexiters, racists, misogynists, homophobes, golfers.

Also, no players, Lotharios, Casanovas, cads, cheaters, charlatans, lechers, lounge-lizards, mashers, philanderers, swingers, Swiss-Tonys, tom-cats, two-timers, womanisers or rogues. Had enough of those. And, please, no psychopaths either.

Oh, and if it's a tall, leggy blonde you're after, this is not that page.
