I've been told I'm smart and have a good sense of humor, plus I look and act much younger than my years. I'm playful and enjoy double entendres.
I grew up in the New York metropolitan area and went to an experimental high school in the Berkshires. I then went to a small college in Kentucky, taught in NYC briefly and changed career directions by going to the NY School for Interior Design, moved to California in 1974 and worked as a Designer/Salesperson for Gump's in San Francisco for many years. I have also owned my own food distribution business. But now I'm retired except for an occasional decorating job. So, presently my passion in life is to see as much of the world as I can before I'm done.
My husband passed away in early 2007 and I long for the closeness, unequivocal acceptance and emotional oneness he and I shared. It would be lovely to partake in common activities, but for me, what is most important is finding the right person to reignite the spark of chemistry.
The person I'm seeking would have a terrific sense of humor. My further wish list is that he would be smart, is, or has been accomplished in whatever his field of endeavor, has high self esteem, yet is down to earth and unpretentious. He should be caring and with the right person, devoted. He should expect nothing less from me.
What I’m doing with my life
As I mentioned above, I have a passion for traveling and the older
I get the more urgent it becomes to see as much as I can.
Fortunately my bucket list is receding. The activities I enjoy are
snorkeling, dancing, ping pong, billiards, archery, horseback
riding, bowling, zip-lining, dining out, concerts, comedy clubs,
theater and movies. But because I choose not to go out alone, I
watch a lot of TV at home.
I’m really good at
When I take on a project, whatever it is, I like to do it to the
best of my ability. I guess, without being obsessive or compulsive
about it, I expect great results and want my partner to be
The first things people usually notice about me
I think the first thing they notice are my blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite foods are Italian, Chinese and Thai. I like many kinds
of music, especially going to concerts. Some of the types are
Country, Easy Listening, Oldies, some show tunes, some jazz, some
instrumentals. A book that I read many years ago made a great
impression on me, Black Like Me.
The six things I could never do without
1. Being appreciated
4. Friends & family
6. Good food
but not necessarily in this order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I will be doing the rest of my life, and with whom.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home watching TV. But I'd much rather be with the love
of my life doing any number of fun things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I'll reserve this for a very special person in my life.
