Creative, laughter-driven and independent nest builder/wanderluster, ready to embark on the next adventure. Raised and schooled in Philadelphia, got the musical beat in NYC and Chicago, became a connoisseur of the outdoors and Western living in San Francisco. Former pinball wizard and jacks champion, dedicated flosser and exceptional parallel parker.
Safari, river rafting, sailing, or cultural/artistic pursuits...I have or will try almost anything once, but under no circumstances do I bungee jump. My desire is to visit Bhutan, where the government is kept in power as the result of high gross national happiness scores.
I'm a successfully rehabilitated hi-tech Silicon Valley workaholic, and probably have taken this retirement thing way too seriously. How many women do you know who pick up and move to another country? Think Gilda Radnor's zany Girl Scout; Meryl Streep's independent woman in Out of Africa; Diane Keaton's hopeful romantic in Something's Got To Give and Meg Ryan as best friend and moaner in when Harry Met Sally. Throw in THE Joan Wilder as played by Kathleen Turner in Romancing the Stone.
Looking for intelligent, articulate, optimistic, energetic companion who has no preconceived notions of what the relationship possibilities could or should be. The partner I seek should be kind to kids, dogs and the environment and have gotten the upper hand with his curable disorders. If you promise to laugh at my jokes, ignore the bad hair days and help me with advanced mathematics, I will be a supportive mate, droll conversationalist, gracious hostess, inquisitive travel and activity partner and the one whose friends describe her as a "class act" and"the real deal."
