Kindness, integrity, openness and thoughtfulness are valued. I look for these qualities in both my friendships and love relationships. I speak directly from the heart and you will always know where you stand. Your willingness to share your heartfelt thoughts and emotions with me are appreciated as well.
I strive to be a good human being and give what I can to organizations whose missions are meaningful to me. I volunteer a few hours a week at the Women's Cancer Resource Center in Oakland, helping women who have or are recovering from cancer. I also volunteer some time helping homeless animals find new homes. I learned the importance of giving at an early age from my parents.
I lead an active lifestyle which includes going to the gym several times a week, hiking with my dog, going to museums. Just saw the David Hockney exhibit at the de Young, fabulous! Enjoy concerts, movies and just trekking around the City. I like to explore new places near and far and hope to do more traveling in the future. I am fun to be with and hope that you are too.
I look forward to sharing the next 60 years of my life with a (somewhat unconventional) man who is emotionally available to love and be loved. You and I are both compassionate, demonstrative of our feelings and passionate. You want to share how your day went when you come home to me at night and you are equally interested in hearing about my day. You and I accept and appreciate our differences (though significant differences around politics, religion and social justice could be a problem). My parents, who were married for over 50 years, were great role models for what a good relationship/partnership could be. They demonstrated a deep level of love, respect and honor for each other. I'm ready to do the same and hope you are too.
