I am hoping to find my soul mate - a confidante, companiorn, partner, life's mate (?) - someone with whom I can interface, share interests and outings, converse and spend time with. As the Nat King Cole song so adeptly put it, "to love and be loved in return."
I have many lifelong friends with whom I regularly socialize. The math and interpersonal dynamics of pairing one single person with a couple is awkward and doesn't readily work. Alas, we live in a world where there is a "singles supplement!" charge.
My interests are diverse and eclectic, ranging from travel (both foreign and domestic), fine dining, theatre, movies, cooking, reading, Broadway music to Scrabble. I enjoy sports and occasionally play golf but am not a fanatic and do not sit glued to the TV set. I am an East Coast transplant (here since 1971)and grew up in a less outdoorsy society where cards, board games, ping pong and pool were prevalent and camping didn't exist.
Today I enjoy weekend getaways, spelunkering (cave exploration), rafting and the occasional day on the water and plunking down anywhere with a good book. When time and money permit, I love to visit foreign countries and have been to most parts of the world. Just recently took a cruise and visited 5 countries in Europe. This is unusual for me in that I usually opt for backwater, less frequented places (e.g. New Caledonia, Borneo and Madagascar). I have scoped out for future trips: Malta, Majorca, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Ecuador, Uruguay, Cambodia and Newfoundland. At the top of this wish list is to take a cruise through the Norwegian fjords and along the Norwegian coast up to the Arctic Circle.
For weekend getaways, I love Pismo Beach, Santa Ynez Valley, Central Coast and Gaslight District in Old Town San Diego. Given a few days more, I would add Napa, the Bay Area, Lake Tahoe and Reno.
Is my passport-ready mate out there?
