The possibility of authentic love

On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever appeals to me. I love socializing, music, art, reading, dining, movies, lounging. I'm open to new things and comfortable with myself. My kids just took me dancing for my birthday, I had so much fun, I'm actually sore! The kids are taking me to see "Book of Mormon". And they gave me truffled honey for my birthday...sounds good on cheese.
Having just retired, I plan to take classes that interested me while I was in college, but wasn't able to schedule. Anthro, Linguistics, Literature, History. The possibilities are endless!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been known to put an ice cube in white wine....OMG
