I'm confident, intelligent, and independent. I don't need a man in
my life to be happy, but I would love to have a partner to share
the good times with. It would make me happier :-) My friends think
of me as warm, affectionate, nurturing, and rather wickedly funny.
My grandsons know they can ask me anything...and I do mean
anything...and I will tell them the truth. I am a proud progressive
liberal. I don't understand how people can justify voting against
their own interests, but I can agree to disagree with other people
and still find them interesting. I am not good with shallow
relationships...life is too short to spend time with people you
don't truly care for. Best of luck to everyone who is searching for
one special someone to share this stage of their life with.
What I’m doing with my life
I am very fortunate to have spent my life doing what I love. I
spent many years as an actor/singer in musical theatre and opera.
At this point, I am semi retired from the stage, but enjoy teaching
others to sing and to make magic on the stage.
I also enjoy reading, gardening, cooking, spending time with my
kids and grandkids, and enjoying the company of close friends.
I’m really good at
Many things...anything I have an interest in. I am a professional
musician and performer, and teach as well, both privately and at
the college level. My interests include reading, cooking,
Music, theatre and people. My family is very important, and I have
three grandsons whom I adore. My friends are also important, but I
count true friends as rare treasures. I'm very friendly and
outgoing, so have many acquaintances...but true friends???...those
are precious and modest in number.
I give great dinner parties!
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile, my eyes, and my sense of humor.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Psychological thrillers (Silence of the lambs grabs my attention
every time!), comedies (bridesmaids was one of the funniest shows
I've seen in a very long time). Mysteries, romance, legal or
courtroom dramas. Current tv favorites...Dexter, next iron chef,
bones. Love musical theatre, opera, thought provoking plays and
The six things I could never do without
Family & friends
Good food and good wine
Music and theatre
A comfortable home
Intelligent and witty conversation
Seeing the beauty in the world around us and appreciating the
simple things in life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lovely it would be to have a partner to share everyday things,
as well as love and passion...both for each other and for the
things we enjoy doing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Either relaxing at home or going to the theatre.
You should message me if
You can appreciate a grown woman who accepts herself as she is. I
wasted some time in my youth trying to be a fashionable chihuahua.
I finally decided to just be the best St.Bernard I could be. I am a
big woman, but know how to dress well, and have never frightened
any small children.
In return, I don't care if you are short, bald, big, bearded, or
clean cut, as long as you are well groomed and a man of integrity
and kindness....a great sense of humor is a necessity!
