Looking for a man with joie de vivre

About me - description

Always happy in a bathing suit (I swim, in the sea, summer and winter). And when belting out rock and pop songs as an alto with my choir (it also involves dance moves: always a challenge but it feels so good when you finally get it right.)

I write about science for a living - and make a living at it. And I live my life surrounded by books. I don't see the RSVP process as a series of auditions for the role of "Mr Right" . So I don't expect capital R "Romance" (cue : walks on the beach and dinners by an open fire.) My life is full of friends and I have a young adult daughter and plenty of mates for beach walks and weekend breaks.

But I would like to spend time in the company of a good bloke. Someone aged between 58 and 67, with a crackling sense of humour, a passionate interest in his occupation (whether work or "hobby"), a belief in social justice and, ideally, left of centre politics. He would be a man who likes outings: the movies? the theatre? Maybe even the opera. Or the football. A man who relishes the odd weekend trip to a place with a beautiful beach and a few good restaurants -- and likes to wander around art galleries, here and in Europe, in the company of a woman who likes to listen to the audio commentary.

He might be someone who likes to cook. Or perhaps he is just a man with an enviable portfolio of take away menus. And if a friendship were to develop into a relationship, that would be terrific.
I also work out in the gym (but never without a podcast on my headphones to stop the boredom.) I find the idea of putting my profile on a dating site scary. I hate the scrutiny. But I guess we all do. So that's one thing we have in common...
