bobbikins Female (74) from Norfolk

I am a widow who leads a busy interesting life, who is'nt desperate or lonely but would like to be able to share and laugh about the funny and bizarre things in life that we all come across. My cats are used to me talking to them but I 'm getting bored with the same answers! I am retired from paid work and consider myself to be a generous and kind person (I would would'nt I!)I am independant, solvent and have lots of hobbies and interests to keep me very busy. I have discovered, at last, that I am now allowed to relax sometimes and so I cherish my poolside, sunshine holidays to the Canaries! Bliss.
I would like to meet a man who is looking for a serious reationship, who is not going to lead me a "merry dance" as the saying goes and has all the usual cliche qualities of reliability. sincerity etc. but also who believes in seizing the moment! Maybe an impossible dream but who knows?
