Okay WordPress luvvies I think I’m almost ready to give up on Internet dating but before I do I’m going to ask for your help.
Flame haired mixed raced voluptuous single forty-something Lady
Seeks a sane, educated, forty-something fairly attractive gentleman.
(Yes! this is my Internet dating WordPress add)
Let me start by answering the typical profile questions;
My Self Summary;
Hair; Red (via L’Oreal)
Height; 5’ 6’’
Body type; Curves and a big bumper
Religion; nothing organised, spiritual
Ethnicity; White/black African
I’m looking for a relationship but guess I’ll have to hang out with a few frogs before I find a prince. No problem, they say romance is dead; well I’m not sure who ‘they’ are so I’ll hold out for some as I have quite a bit left in me.
I’ve been single for (ahem cough-cough) for a while now. I’m happy but would like to find someone to share laughter, talk culture, discover new things and argue over the duet with.
What I’m doing with my life;
I’m currently working full time as a manufacturing planner. It’s demanding.
I’m a single mom to an 11 year old. I also have an older child, a graduate living independently, who comes round occasionally to raid my fridge and use extraordinary amounts of my shampoo.
I have a lovely (if small) group of cherished friends.
I’m really good at;
Throwing parties, dinners and barbecues. I have great organisational skills. I’m a good listener and I’m told I’m a really good friend. I’m the calm one in a real crisis but a bit of a screamer in situations where little spiders are involved.
(I’m hopeless at gardening, every plant Itouch dies……you have been warned! Also life is way too short to iron!)
Travelling. Spent 3 weeks in April 2013 travelling round Thailand with my 10 year old, Bangkok, Chiang Mai and some island hopping. Great fun!
Solitude. I like my own space to have quiet time to read and watch old movies in a massive hoodie and woolly socks from time to time.
Wood. I have an open fire. I’d like to have a handsome man wield the rotary saw and chop the wood for winter(I mean that; I mean come on it’s too much for a girl; plus I always leave it until it is actually winter!)
Writing. I’m a fledgling blogger. I write whatever comes to mind and my blog has no clear identity as yet. I just hope readers enjoy it. Oh and yes, I have unashamedly reached out to my blogging community to help me find a date, maybe more who knows!
Six things I could not live without;
What? Six is just not enough! The 10 things I could never do without are my family, conversation, iPhone, Lagos, sunshine, my friends, music, books, pounded yam, laughter!
I spend time thinking about;
I’m a bit curious so can often be thinking about whether I should take apart something to see how it works, what would happen if I put a peg on the cats tail, why are coco-pops being advertised at 21.19 at night; I mean who is the target market really? Would anyone notice if I never ironed a single thing ever again? How to avoid the balloons at the school disco?
On a typical Friday night I am
Occasional Friday nights I’m probably out with friends at the theatre/movies/dinner just having a good time. Most of my clubbing days are behind me (as I clubbed a lot!) but I can be found in the middle of the dance floor on special occasions.
Not a skinny lass…
