My self-summary
I am a joyful, mature, communicative, curious, fun-loving woman who would love to meet a man locally for dining, dialogue, and dare I say . . . dancing?! A widow for 24 years and divorced for 18, I have been trying the online dating for over a while. Like many of you, I suspect, I would far prefer to meet someone spontaneously in person, but ah - it's the 21st century and here we are. I taught a full-range of communication courses at the university level for 25 plus years and have a deep appreciation for authentic, mutual conversation where both people are heard and validated without judgment.

A wonderful man for me is one who is brimming with kindness, confidence, and compassion. A man who is known for his integrity, character, and vitality. A man who is completely comfortable in his own skin, knows who he is, and invites and welcomes invigorating dialogue from his partner. A man who is open, flexible, and has a zest for joyful living. And a man who does not immediately think a younger woman is his ideal mate. I am fun, fit, fun, and have a joyful spirit and wise soul.
What I’m doing with my life
I exercise several times a week and particularly enjoy this somewhat difficult to describe fitness known as "NIA" which combines the powerful martial arts, with the healing meditative arts all set to a huge variety of music which is expressed in creative dance. It is indescribably delicious! I like to take take pictures and put together little videos; enjoy dining out or cooking at home; going to movies or live theater; constantly reading about health and spirituality matters. Just hanging out with special friends . . . most anything with the right person.
I’m really good at
Making everyone feel welcome and wanted; calling forth the best from people; including people in conversations; being hospitable and gracious. Seeing the humorous side of life; rolling with the punches; enjoying the small things with deep gratitude and appreciation.
The first things people usually notice about me
My big smile, welcoming personality, and emotional generosity. My "Living Large" style belies my small stature (5'0").
The six things I could never do without
Faith in the Divine
Hope in possibilities
Sense of Humor
Music, movies, books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to live the fullest, most joyful, authentic, creative, generous, inspirational life possible and how to encourage others to do the same and walk together in solidarity in our journey.
On a typical Friday night I am
Dancing NIA then enjoying a glass of wine and appetizers with friends; catching a movie; dining out or in.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to dabble in creative writing and have written a few poems, short stories and would love to learn how to write screen plays.
