In Her Own Words

About her

I love books (novels/poetry) above everything else, but also music (I'm a musician) and history. I adore nature – ideal date is a country walk talking about books, or a coffee shop or glass of wine in a quiet pub.
Originally from the North-East but only the ‘a’ and the ‘u’ of the accent remain.
I keep fit in my own way but am not into rock climbing, mountain biking or ski-ing – intimacy comes from conversation, imho.
Technologically talentless, in fact pleasantly surprised I can navigate this website. I’m a bit sceptical about internet dating – how can you judge the sincerity of a smile from a photo?
Both shy and camera-shy so don’t have many pics (hate Instagram etc). I have a recent snap from a friend’s garden party – happy to send if I think we’d get on.
I’m a carer so can’t manage anything full time and would want to take things slowly with any potential match.

About her ideal match

I like men who are brainy (very important), funny, geeky, kind, and gentle. I like kind faces and warm smiles – not into suave or charming, and if you’re extremely handsome or super-cool you’re not for me, sorry. I have poor eyesight anyway, so looks won’t matter much!
Emotional intelligence VERY IMPORTANT.
I need someone who’s willing to accept a not-quite-conventional relationship (see caring duties above). Also I can’t drive, so being nearby would be a huge advantage.
Deal breakers: smoking, bad temper, making derogatory personal remarks. Also no nudists, herpetologists, or Newcastle supporters.
