I am a soon-to-be-49 year old blonde blue-eyed lady living in Devon. I gave up lecturing in 2004 and went to live in the South of France where I helped renovate and old farmhouse south of Cahors for 2 years. Recently returned to England, I have just bought an apartment in an estuary village near Exeter.
I would like to chat to and meet people who like travelling, activities such as walking, cycling, and who like to play tennis, badminton etc. It's nice to meet for coffee and a chat, go out for a meal, go to the theatre or cinema or just cook a meal at home maybe. The most important things for me about another person are that they are honest, know how to enjoy life, sensitive, kind and have a sense of humour and fun.
I am a very easy-going, adaptable and low maintenance person, who is happy to join in with new activities. I am interested in environmental issues, and would love to travel to cold climate countries, although I also love the heat!
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I am very flexible about dating, although I prefer to meet for the first time in an environment where there are others, such as a pub, cafe or restaurant. It's nice to go somewhere you can chat rather than the cinema or theatre.
It would also be nice to do a coffee date, lunch, or walk somewhere nice and stop for refreshment.
Really very easy-going and adaptable, I just don't mind, but would feel uncomfortable in a personal one-on-one environment, such as your or my home!
