Originates from the Greek name Helene meaning Light. Wiki says this about Helen:

Helen of Troy (from the Iliad) is widely known as "the face that launched a thousand ships". Thus, 1 millihelen is the amount of beauty needed to launch a single ship.

This is Helen, my partner, soul mate and best friend. I have never known anyone like Helen before. I can tell her anything, anything at all and she listens and doesn't judge me. The more of my deep dark secrets she knows the more she loves me. In many ways I have had trouble with coping with this idea, that a woman who comes to know all about me would only love me more for it. My attitude has held us back and that is just amazing to me. She is so gentle, so loving and so supportive that I cannot but help give her my entire heart. She rules my world and I love it. This page, in case you haven't noticed, is dedicated to how I feel about my wonderful partner and how she makes me feel. I won't apologize for the sloppy romance and the slushy feelings because they are what I live for. All else in my life and on this site are secondary to Helen. She is the bright centre of this dark universe for me and I am, as a moth to a flame, irresistibly drawn to her. On August 16th 2008 she made me the happiest man alive and married me. Even after eleven years of being together I was terrified she’d say no when I asked her to marry me on Port Meirion beach. Thankfully, and as I should have known, she said yes.


Helen is an adventurous woman in every way imaginable, and she enjoys the great outdoors very much. Helen likes to find small roads for me to traverse, but I can't complain as they lead to beautiful places like this (Sleat, Skye).


Helen and I share many passions together, such as our love of the outdoors, especially Norfolk, Wales and Scotland. We love to talk to each other and have fun with our conversations as well as speaking more seriously. We both enjoy a certain type of science fiction, though I am more of a fan than Helen is. Although I have to say that is not the case with Babylon 5. You may have noticed a certain B5 theme to this site, as all members of our household are huge fans.

Helen makes me feel as though no matter what happens to me during the day, it's alright because at the end of every day I get to lie in her arms and feel how much she loves me. She loves me even when I make mistakes or when I'm grumpy. She never loses her temper with me and we never fight. I can honestly say I have never had so much as a shouting match with Helen in our entire (coming up for) seventeen years together. We have had hard times together, but we have always talked (eventually!) and things have always ended stronger between us rather than weaker. If I'm very lucky, I'll spend the rest of my life with this fabulous, precious person.
