Outgoing and down to earth, I have a great sense of humor, laugh a lot, open to doing new things, love the theater, movies, art, and music. Anything beautiful puts a smile on my face. Feel at home in NYC, in the mountains, or at the ocean. Long walks are a favorite. Good conversation essential. Looking for a date and a good friend, which hopefully will lead to much more (but it is not necessary).
Believe that good long-term relationships are based upon mutual respect, trust, many common interests. patience, and emotional and physical intimacy.
Was an avid gardener, love to cook, and albeit a bit rusty, love to dance. Although I am not doing much cooking these days, I still am known to bake birthday cakes (any flavor) for special friends.
Love to eat out, try new restaurants, go poking about in little shops and bookstores. Love to read, and only watch only a little TV ( PBS, Discovery and History Channels), play scrabble and do the NYTimes crossword. Cried with joy when Obama won and cried again through the inauguration.
Have a twenty-three year old daughter who means the world to me.
Believe in volunteering my time and see this as part of being a citizen in my community, rather than "paying back" anything.
