Just dipping my toe....
I'm a sociable, happy person with good friends that I enjoy spending time with and a good job that I feel I make a difference in. I love walking with my dogs, pottering in the garden and going to see music (ok, hear it...). Always looking to meet new friends, a gig buddy would be nice, and maybe more with the right person.

I am quite happy being alone, but I miss the depth of conversation that is possible with someone around that is on the same wavelength.

I don't like having my photo taken, and these are literally the only two current photos that I have of myself. I'll need to search about to find more pics!!

I am passionate about the idea of lifelong learning and access to education for all which is why I work in HE
Eternal student! I have a PhD in remote sensing for archaeology, PGCE in Secondary Physics teaching and various other bits and bobs, and am just starting a PG diploma! Passion for learning or glutton for punishment? I'm not always sure..
I respect everyone's opinion, but hate the way that religion is divisive and one of the main causes of wars and aggression around the world.
I believe in a fair society and the need to protect our environment and our vulnerable citizens.
Generally casual but I scrub up no bad!

It's most likely to be something sciencey I'm afraid. I'm a bit of a geek in that respect. I do like a good read though.

As long as it isn't scary or violent I don't mind. I quite often snooze during films (even at the cinema!!) especially if the fire's going!
