My self-summary
I thought I would throw some keywords that would describe what I like and who I am.
If you recognize yourself in some of them, I think it might be worth taking the time to keep on reading my profile.
Travel, surprises, music, dancing, sports, books, last minute plans, open mind, nature, photography, museum, craziness, spontaneity, going out (but also staying in), sharing, simplicity, respect, cooking and eating, walking, down to earth and sometimes up in the clouds, people, casual and fashionable, pets, news, work, sense of humor about yourself, charming, sexy, fit, affectionate and fun loving.
I am a foreigner (non-Turkish) and live and work in Istanbul, Turkey. I have 3 grown children who are married and out in the world: Paris, Boston and Ankara.
I am looking to meet someone, preferably a foreigner in the area.

And yet another short list of things that I’m not really fond of:
- Self-centered people (but, hey… Have you already heard anybody saying “yes, yes, I am definitely self-centered.” So this one shows with time!!)
- Excessive work out / complete body addiction
- Superficial people (but same problem as #2…)
- Smokers and heavy drinkers.

In addition on the subject of age I am continually mistaken for a 50 year old, Judge for yourself !!
I believe that as Mark Twain says “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.”
What I’m doing with my life
I am working full time but in my spare time I love reading books, watching movies, taking long walks at the beach, forest or city, eating out, meeting people, spending time with friends, traveling, staying in touch with my children and family who live abroad.
I’m really good at
Connecting with children, caring, cooking, listening. Sharing good moments of life.
The first things people usually notice about me
Kind and loving personality... and good- looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books : My interest varies according to my mood . I like so many writers I read any book that hits the top of the bestsellers list, in between I read some French novels and Turkish work in translation.
Music is very important to me. I love good oldies as well as modern pop, classical music as well as jazzzzzzzz. I love good musicals: Chicago, Moulin Rouge, Nine.
Movies: I was member of a movie club in my hometown at the age of 15 and I have never lost my love for movies, I also love owning the DVD of my favorites
Food: The magic word. I love preparing and sharing a good meal with friends or dining out, A great meal is a corner stone in solid family relationships and friendships.
The six things I could never do without
My job, my 3 children and my grandchildren.
Nature and the sun.
Good food.
Books and music !!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
People and their kindness and compassion. The meaning of life, the past and the future...
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, cooking and dining, watching a movie, curled up in a chair with a good book. Or out on the city with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Why admit anything private....
You should message me if
You're intersted in friendship initially which might evolve in a long term relationship eventually. Who knows ??
