Well I've decided that I need to be slightly more proactive than I've been recently, in terms of searching out potential soulmates! I've been rather busy lately, and possibly haven't made enough time for loving.
I live in Edinburgh (good airport and rail connections!), and have done so for a long time, although, strangely, I was born in Madrid and then grew up in the Canary Islands, when they were still tourist-free and very beautiful, until I was 14. My father was Czech, from Prague, from where he made a sharp exit in Jan '39, and my mother grew up in the high hills of Galloway.
My passions are many but include the arts, dance in particular and climbing mountains. I trained as a dancer, danced with the Royal Swedish Ballet as a child and have been very lucky to have found lots of contemporary performance work here in Scotland (and at Dublin Dancehouse, the Barbican etc), during these last years, as well as teaching work. I slipped a disc a couple of years ago and as a result have wound down on my dancery activities, though I still teach one day a week at Dance Base in Edinburgh - this is dance for people w Parkinson's, in association with Scottish Ballet. So my work nowadays is fairly freelance: I've decided to focus on things which really interest/matter to me. In that context, I also teach English to the Roma community here, through the charity Crisis Skylight, and I also founded and run a fortnightly Language Cafe at the LGBT Centre in Edinburgh.
Anyway, to get to the point, I am quite keen to meet fellow spirits who I can relate to on an intellectual as well as a jolly level - and ideally people who perhaps share a few of my passions, outdoory, cultural, you name it, people who have a diversity of interests, a zest for life. Who have lived and survived thus far!
I would say that I can be light and serious in equal amounts. Love healthy food, reading, wild places, remote greek island beaches, dancing, languages, people who are open and honest.

Oh this is so difficult. Right, this is a first draft. I would say that I'm looking for someone who is intelligent, enjoys laughing, is independent and happy, loves the arts, is open to walking around in hills in Scotland or anywhere else, reads, eats relatively healthily (actually no, you can eat what you want @ note to self: don't come across as control freak), is funny and very loving, has compassion, empathy, insight, wisdom and humanity, loves beaches with no one else on them, who is open and honest and who tries to live life with integrity, authenticity and congruity.
