I am British and 47, but look a lot younger. Most people think I am in my late 20s/early 30s. I enjoy traveling, especially being spontaneous and getting into a car and taking off somewhere. I have toured the USA & Europe, stayed on a kibbutz in Israel and lived in Calgary, Ontario and BC. I love America, particularly the Pacific Northwest & Oregon state. I am currently doing an online course in romantic fiction with the aim of writing for Mills & Boon, plus I am interested in careers in Public Relations & Corporate Communications and real estate. My fmost relaxing pastimes are watching HgTV & Lifetime movies and dining out. I enjoy listening to baroque music and I love birds especially ducks, zebra finches & parrotlets. I am seeking an intelligent, educated & professional American or Canadian who is clean shaven, 5ft 11/6ft and has longish dark hair. Someone who will stick by me when things are bad and celebrate with me when things are good. Someone who is worldly wise and can offer words of advice when needed, but will listen and accept an opinion if it is different to his own. Someone who is warm, kind, caring, loyal, reliable, stable, tolerant, easygoing, generous, passionate, trustworthy, mature, patient, unselfish & protective, and with whom I can build a life. I am independent and career-oriented, but I am looking for a man who knows how to treat a woman well. A bit of spoiling, pampering & TLC goes a very long way!
