I'm smart, fun, accomplished, and passionate. Some might find me
challenging. I was born in Europe and grew up in New York. Although
I have lived in SoCal since 1979, I still have a bit of a NY "edge"
- endearing or annoying - up to you to decide! I am outgoing and
love to talk and laugh. I'm very energetic and active. I enjoy
skiing, hiking, bicycling, and love to travel. I have learned a lot
from my past relationships and continually strive to become a
better partner and also better understand the kind of man that I
want to be with. I know that I need someone who is self confident,
intelligent, energetic and a good communicator. Someone with whom I
can have fun no matter what we are doing. And yes, physical
attraction is important. Are you out there?
What I’m doing with my life
Working at something I enjoy (emergency medicine) while also having a lot of time to do other things I enjoy. I love to travel (have been to six of the seven continents) and am always looking for new places to explore. In April I went on a trek to Everest Base Camp - we walked 80 miles in 2 weeks in a world that is quite different from the one that we are used to. I have a lot of friends with whom I get together regularly. Staying in shape is important to me and I work out at least 3 times a week. I have not missed a ski season in 42 years!

You should message me if
You are smart, adventurous, confident and not easily intimidated, and have a sense of humor. Please be financially secure (I will not be a sugar mommy) and accomplished. If you are dishonest about your age, height, body type, income, goals, etc. please pass me by. I am looking for a dynamite relationship in which the passion, communication, and intimacy continue to grow for the rest of our lives.
BTW- I've been getting a lot of messages from significantly younger men. So let me clarify - I am not a cougar. If you are under 50, don't bother - I won't respond. I will not respond to profiles without pictures.
