A Little Bit About Me
My friends describe me as funny and intelligent. (I would cease association with anyone who did not.) Also feisty - I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but it is what it is.
I pick up hobbies but move on before I get any good at them! (Usually due to lack of time.) I'm currently into tennis, but recent pastimes have included cycling, French, and photography. Although I still like to think that I'll cycle the Prudential 100 next year... I'm currently also a little bit obsessed with my tomato plants and checking them for aphids.
I work too hard (finance) - am trying very hard to cut down.
I like: theatre, Monet, food festivals, the view from Waterloo Bridge, perfume, summer rain, books (I buy more than I know I will read), flowers, my sofa, New York, good coffee, walking around London.
I do quite a lot of volunteer work; I'm the director of a charity, I mentor, and other random stuff.
I'm quite independent and have gotten used to doing things on my own like holidays and stuff (most of my friends are either settled down now or live abroad) - but it would be nice to have someone to share things with...
What I Am Looking For
I tend to like Alpha male types, someone confident in themselves. I think it's important for people to have their own lives and dreams and to help each other with them, so a passion of some sort is a must.
Otherwise, I guess my shopping list is the same as you'll have read on everyone else's profile... intelligent, good values, kind, funny, etc etc.
