I am on this site to find that special woman that makes my pulse race when I hear her voice. And, I would love to be the one to do that for her. I am an open-minded person, not judgmental, the kind of person you can count on, dependable, true to my word and a loyal friend (just like a golden retriever without the shedding :-). I am financially and emotionally secure, creative, intelligent and confident but not arrogant. I tend to be energetic, "young at heart", appreciating and enjoying life's simple pleasures. I am fortunate to have excellent relationships with my children (we just went to Vancouver) and fun friends. I am told I have a great sense of humor and I enjoy comedy clubs or poetry open mics to supplement every day’s humorous events. I am a foodie with a large kitchen (good for entertaining), but I eat out way too much (an improvement area). I prefer to eat healthy foods bought at DuPont Circles farmers market or Whole Foods (also known as Whole Paycheck) and cook at home instead of my current lifestyle of Restaurant week every night. My favorite wines are Brunello’s and Pinot Noir’s or Whites from the Willamette Valley and France. I make one of the city’s best pizzas and lattes (My house cleaner will testify). I work out regularly and bike ride through the city for errands and pleasure. (When I am tired I take the Vespa:-). I attribute my energy to being a pescetarian since 1999, working out, having a positive attitude about people and life. I make new friends easily and keep old friends for life. Although it sounds old school, I still believe in chivalrous behavior. I am empathetic and the most rewarding thing I do is volunteering at Miriam’s Kitchen. I am very passionate about playing live music, listening to live music for dancing and doing the right thing. I would rather participate in life than watching it from a couch.
