I am a divorced dad who is looking for dating in his life. I enjoy
most music, but Jazz is my passion. I love to cook gourmet meals
and share them with my friends and family. I like going to the
opera, plays, symphony, museums, restaurants (ethnic ones are
preferred), and movies. I read for enjoyment. I also love dancing.
I love modern art, especially surrealists and Salvadore Dali. I am
a child of the 60s in my philosophy of life. I am "a little off of
the wall" (As one friend told me a while ago, "some people march to
the tune of a different drummer, but Ira, you march to the symphony
of a whole different band!"). I enjoy being outdoors, and I go
backpacking for enjoyment as well as play tennis when time permits,
and I have a partner. I bicycle year round. I have lived in many
places worldwide, and I enjoy traveling.
I am looking for friendship first...without friendship, a
relationship can't move forward. After the friendship, then dating
and beyond if "all the stars align".

On a typical Friday night I am
spending time with family and friends. Many times you'd catch me at
music venues, art museums, movies, movies, plays, symphony or

you feel there is a connection with me and you are independent and
willing to take a chance.
