Listen, I am just me.
My background is one of traveling through my life picking up all that fascinates me and loving every minute of each of those times. I have been married and have two wonderful kids (18 15) who are very quickly starting out or will be starting out on their own adventures. I love them to bits and we are joined, for the most part, at the hip. They are my life in so many respects. But I am still just me.
I have been single now for (4 years) and enough is enough. It has been fun, but I miss being able to share things with someone special. To be able to wake up in the middle of the night and watch them sleep and to be able to feel them breathing on my chest. I miss the warmth love gives to my soul and the desire to simply ‘be’, to be able to feel that breathing is easier when they walk into the room, to share with them, listen to them, and comfort them. To reach out and hold their hand even when they do not feel ask. I miss the connection and the need to be with someone you want to hold close and say “It will all be okay” or “Do you really need 5 pairs of shoes? We are only going for the weekend!”
I always want to find the fun in the things that I do or find myself involved in. I am passionate, and romantic to a fault. I love beaches, walks along them day or night rain or shine. I love lazy Sundays. I relish sleeping in. There is nothing better than getting to the airport to catch a plane to wherever, traveling to far off places or just around the corner, going to or making dinner, sitting and reading or watching a movie at home. I am not really into clubbing or dancing, but I will be there anyway if you want to. I am confident enough in myself and my abilities to always want to lean more and exploration is a real love of mine.
I have been lucky in my life to have been able to travel and live all over the World. I grew up in the London, lived in Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Greece, and Germany. I have been to Russia (both during the USSR days as well as now). So, have seen all of what is now the EU and traveled South East Asia where I feel in love with Thailand and Cambodia.
I come from a big Hollywood family. I went to school in London and then in NYC. I started out being a First Grade teacher for 4 years in the NYC school system and then for 2 years at a private school there. Then one summer my older brother in Hollywood told me that I should come out to visit. That started what was to become a 29 year career in the film and TV industries. It all ended 4 years ago when I woke up and simply said that it was not fun anymore. I was an Exec Producer with 3 projects in the works in Europe (I was living then in the UK full time). There is more to that story, so I will tell you if you really want to know. But now... I am writing, acting as a consultant, on the boards of 2 EU foundations, work with 3 NGOs, teach, lecture, and call Thailand home for part of the year and PS for the other part and I have never looked back.
Why Thailand? Because of the people, the culture, the beauty and most of all the lack of daily drama that seems to be the hallmark of the West. I try my best to keep drama at a distance from my life. For life is far too short. I lost that older brother of mine just last May to a stroke and it hit me rather hard you see.
I am not going to be on this site forever. The summer is here and so I will not waste anyone’s time with games. I am serious and I am looking for someone who is ready to fall in love for the last time in their lives with someone who is ready to fall in love for the last time in his life. I am someone who believes in principles, devotion, promises, and who doesn’t mind picking up your clothes from the floor or winding his way through the makeup on the edges of the sink!
All that I can really promise is to be there for you, love you, make you smile and laugh, and hold your hand no matter what.
