Darjeeling Female (61) from Dumfries and Galloway

Blowing my own trumpet isn’t something that comes naturally to me. I’d love to learn to play the trumpet, by the way, but I digress :o)

So, what do I write here that isn’t cliché ridden and trite? Ok, well for a start I can’t remember the last time I watched a DVD, I don’t drink wine (well, I do but only the sparkling stuff) and I don’t have an open fire to snuggle up in front of. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy snuggling up in front of the fire, it’s just that my Baxi Bermuda coal flame effect gas fire doesn’t really have the same ambiance as the real thing. So if you’ve got an open fire I can snuggle up in front of, we need to meet!

I live in South West Scotland. Not far from England, but nonetheless it’s still Scotland and that puts people off because they think it's a million miles away. It isn't. I’m not Scottish and one day I will move, but it suits me fine to be here at the moment as I have a good job and somewhere to call home. I would describe where I live as ‘semi-rural’ and I like that, I couldn’t imagine living in a big city, town or even a large village that has pretensions of being something bigger. I’d love to eventually live by the sea, or by a lake or a babbling brook.

I’ve travelled quite extensively and lived in some hot places – I was there long enough to realise that heat doesn’t suit me. I’m not really one for sunshine beach holidays, I get bored and hot. I’d much rather be exploring the history and culture of where I happen to be. I feel that there is so much to explore in the UK and I’ve started (slowly) to do that. I’ve re-kindled my love of camping and try and get out and about as much as possible in one of the many tents. The Lakes, Cumbria and Hadrian’s Wall are favourites as they’re so close. Unfortunately, they’re also the coldest, wettest and windiest places on this Earth!

I’m a bit of an independent so and so but would love to have someone in my life that I can depend on. For all that I may appear confident on the outside, on the inside I am quite shy and often unsure of myself. Getting out to MSE meets is really helping and I would strongly recommend them to anyone who hasn’t experienced one yet.

I’m really hoping to meet someone who will be my friend, confidante, play-mate and lover; someone who loves hugs and cuddles and snuggling and kissing. Not that much to ask, is it? :o)

If you've taken the time to read through this waffle then go the extra mile and get in touch - it doesn't cost anything!
