I am looking for someone to share my evolving life -- someone who
enjoys traveling and exploring new places, is well read and has
time to spend creating experiences together. During my career I
have lived in Nashville, Wilmington, Richmond, Wilmington and
Philadelphia (and now Ohio) and have traveled to many beautiful,
historic, and fun places in the world for business and pleasure.
Now I'm ready to live the beach life . . . built a house in Lewes
March 2012 and still getting settled full-time into the beach
lifestyle -- sunrise, walks on the beach, going to the farmer's
market, wine tastings at Bin 66 (or my cellar), grilling on the
patio, sunsets. I am an intelligent, healthy, independent woman
that is probably a little too serious, well maybe a little too
independent too. I'm working on spontaneous, but that will probably
always be a stretch for me, more of a planner. Enjoy casual
cycling, yoga, the beach, getting lost in novels, cooking, wine,
some gardening, travel, hanging out with friends. I'd like to be
good at photography, but need to devote time to learn the art.
What I’m doing with my life
Was trying to decide if I was unemployed (that sounded so
desperate) or retired (that sounded too old), but then, in Oct I
interviewed and accepted a job (in Ohio! at least temporarily). I
enjoy an on-the-go lifestyle, in fact, not sure where work really
fits in other than to fund funtime. I have been busy settling into
my home and making new friends in Lewes and Rehoboth Beach, DE.
Would like to find someone that shares common interests, esp. the
beach, travel and fitness activities.
I’m really good at
I am a good friend and very good at taking care of other people. I
am an amazing hostess and my informal 'bed and breakfast' is
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes -- very expressive. Change from blue to aqua to green. Also
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food -- Italian, really all foods except spicy
Wine -- Love Oregon Pinot Noirs, wines from Tuscany, California
Music -- OK, this choice will possibly kill my chances with you,
but I like country music. The stories touch my heart.
Seldom go to the movies at the theater, enjoy movies at home.
Used to travel to NY frequently and love most Broadway
Books -- most novels; crime, drama, love stories
Travel -- Any where that has a beach is always my first choice.
Planning to take my first cruise (in Europe) in Oct. 2014.
Boating -- Owned a 37 ft. double cabin motor yacht for 17 years on
the Chesapeake Bay. I miss boating but the beach life is a good new
The six things I could never do without
My dad (Ohio) and sister (Nevada)
My "front row" friends
My glasses, you want me to see you right?! (ps -- I am getting
tired of reading the menu to men that are too vain to wear their
All my "stuff" -- the year I was living in 3 places and many of my
things were in storage was really hard
Good wine and good food
My housekeeper -- a girl needs at least one luxury . . . well
actually I enjoy more than one luxury but I promise I am not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Renewing joy in my life vs. being busy. And will I find a partner
to share my new adventures?
On a typical Friday night I am
Well, now that I am temporarily living in Ohio for the winter, I am
alone in front of my Duralog. When at home at the beach, typically
I would be at a wine tasting (Bin 66 Rehoboth) and then dinner out
or cooking at home. Now that I am working again, Friday night is my
'time out'. Maybe reading a novel. Maybe catching up on my favorite
TV series (Homeland, Hostages, Masters of Sex, etc). The better
question is what would we be doing together?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Most people simply answer 'that is why it is private'. But I want
you to know me so . . . I feel alone even when I am with other
people, even my best friends. A good friend gave me a bag of charms
with the words: Courage, Strength, Friendship and Joy. She see me
as having these attributes. But in my heart, I have been missing
Joy. I'm happy, but that is different than Joy. I want to be joyful
again and share my joy and love with someone special.
You should message me if
You want to meet and figure out if we have any chemistry . . . do
we enjoy doing things together? Not interested in chatting via
email or text.
