Who am I? The existential question! I am optimistic, joyful, confident, fun-loving, and responsible. I love my sons, my family, my work, and my friends. I try not to focus too much on myself and get out there in the world to try to make some kind of difference. It doesn't always work, but I try. As for why I'm on here: I'm not really sure. I am a widow and know how great a relationship can be. While I'm not looking to replace that, I'm also not willing to settle. If the right person comes my way, great; if not, that's ok, too!
What I’m doing with my life
Working, singing, homeowning, pet owning, raising boys who are/should be almost grown by now.
I’m really good at
Making people feel comfortable. Being a leader.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair and smile. I think, anyway.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Whatever I am currently reading, have recently seen or listened to, or eaten.
Just saw Larry David's Fish in the Dark, Just read "In the Unlikely Event", just listened to "It All Fades Away" (I love the music from Broadway musicals, although I generally hate going to them.) I love binge tv watching: Just watched many seasons of Weeds. How did I miss this from the beginning? I love Italian and Indian food, separately...
The six things I could never do without
The New Yorker
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make sure my boys are launched happily into adulthood, despite their losses. Why this country is regressing...why do we debate the need for gun control? Why can't we solve police brutality and racism? Why do we debate the existence of climate change instead of focusing on reversing it? Why do we care who someone else marries?
On a typical Friday night I am
Recovering from the week, out to dinner, or hanging out at home
with friends or family...and relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like dumb television shows. I sing and dance when I'm alone in my car.
You should message me if
You're looking for friendship, companionship, an adult
relationship...and maybe love.
