Do you like good conversation, good food, and a good laugh? I love all those things. Spending time in New York City to take in a show, shop, and people-watch? I'm in. Going to a Sabres or a Bills game? Please take me along! Want to go for a long walk in the country to enjoy the scenery and the quiet? I'll be ready in five minutes. I could do all those things alone--and sometimes I do--but all of them are much richer when shared with someone special.
I've been in love before so I realize that everyone has a past, and we are all at a different place in life. Let's face it, all those experiences have made us who we are. Right now I want a nice guy who's kind and honest, a man who believes in me and appreciates what I have to offer. What do you have to offer? I hope you're interesting and respectful and open-minded--and you really need to have a good sense of humor. Maybe I could cook you a nice dinner--or maybe you could cook one for me.
You're not jealous are you? I'm not, and I have plenty of close male friends as well as female friends. Friends outside a relationship help maintain balance. I think my friends would tell you that I'm generous, compassionate and loyal. I love them so much. One of my students recently described me as "hilarious--one of a kind!" A great compliment! I also always try to give people the benefit of the doubt and steer clear of the drama. We're not in high school! My biggest asset--eternal optimism--has also caused me the most pain in my life. Oh well.
My two kids are the joy of my existence and I'm so proud of them. My daughter has a great career and my son is just getting started in adult life. Fortunately, I have a friendly relationship with their father. Even better, they both want their mom to be happy. If you have children, I hope you're as crazy about them as I am about mine.
I've been a teacher for many years but I hope you have a lot to teach me. While I truly value the life of the mind, I know that life is a banquet (yeah--corny, I know) and I still have a lot of dishes left to taste! Everyone has something unique to offer.
I'm up for adventures (not too risky, please) or quiet evenings at home watching a movie. French, Greek, or Indian restaurants with a great bottle of wine would be fabulous, but so are bars with super wings and cold beer. Getting dressed up for an event at an art museum would be awesome, but so would throwing on a pair of shorts to head out to the Italian festival.
I listen to NPR regularly (I used to be an announcer on an affiliate station!) and think it's important to know what's going on in the world; I would like to think I'm a person of some substance.
Are you the one who would like to have some adventures with me? If so, I really can't wait to meet you.
