My self-summary
I find this process so odd, but here goes.

I'm a really special woman, so please look deeper than just my photos. At this stage of my life, I appreciate peace, and find joy with the simple things in life: Sunsets in the Bay Area, a walk in a park, a visit to an art museum, as well as the magic of the vineyards in wine country

I'm originally a New Yorker, but having enough of cold and snow, have been happily living in the Bay Area since college. In a nutshell, I'm kind, caring, positive, fun, smart, successful, liberal, artsy, romantic, affectionate, and an animal lover. I'm brutally honest, I prefer Birkenstocks and do not wear stilettos. My job is pretty intense, so I truly value my time when not working, just a few years left. Since I work indoors, I enjoy being outdoors whenever the weather is nice, especially on my deck. I have a wonderful son, and he and his wife live close-by. Animals make me smile, especially dogs. Sadly, I recently had to put my sweet dog, "Tofu," to sleep.

I enjoy the company of someone cooking with me as much as dining at a fine restaurant. In my spare time I'm a painter and look forward to having more time for art when I retire. I enjoy taking exercise classes, especially yoga, and take my dog for walks in the hills. I've recently gone back to my youth and started playing guitar and singing again.

Ideally, I'm looking for a serious relationship with a truly kind man who values the respect of an equal relationship. Do you appreciate the joy of walking hand in hand and snuggling, as much as a romantic evening? I have my act together, no drama, no baggage, so I expect emotional and financial stability.

If I looked at your profile and I did not flirt, and you're interested, please reach out. I might have been in a shy mood or didn't have the guts for some reason. If you check "like," please write a note, I can't see them. Thanks.

I'd appreciate it if you do not waste my time if you are not single, are young enough to be my son, or live in another state or country. Thank you and good luck to you.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been lucky enough to have had a very successful and rewarding career, and still have a few years left before retirement. I love relaxation on my deck.
