I'm single, retired and live alone in the West End of Edinburgh.
No baggage !
I'm fairly well travelled having spent quite a few years in Southern Africa and some time working in France.
I happily settled in Edinburgh some 20+ years although, for my sins, I'm English although from the North East so not quite beyond the pale!
Bungee jumping or Marathon running aren't my thing (:-))
My ambition is to mature, slightly disgracefully, and enjoying life in the company of a like minded mature woman who has a mind and opinions of her own.

For a first date meet for light meal/coffee to see if there is - a spark of interest for both - and the opportunity for either to run for the hills if there isn't.
What are you looking for in a partner?
