My self-summary
The woman who attracts me will be close to or living in Philadelphia, will have a mind of her own and will be fit -- not overweight.

Staying in shape and healthy is important.

I own a small house at the edge Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley in Fairmount Park.

I enjoy the full array of cultural and entertainment activities that Philadelphia has to offer, as well as our proximity to New York City. "I love visiting the city, but I wouldn't want to live there!"

I am not a fashion plate and the fad of the moment makes me uneasy. If you enjoy looking sexy and you can let me be myself, we're great!

Food? I like smaller, family operated restaurants. I am a practical cook: quick and tasty.

Traveling in the USA and abroad will be wonderful.

Parlez vous francais un peu? If you speak Spanish, you can be my guide to other parts of the world.

I am a Unitarian Universalist. Sharing that faith with my partner will be good for the relationship.

Let's get together and have lunch!
What I’m doing with my life
My home requires some regular attention and I am handy at small repairs. My interest in video and audio media will be in the mix. I speak a little French and like to practice it when I can. It stretches my consciousness!

I am active in my local community by helping to improve our commercial and living environment. I record the Sunday service at my Unitarian Universalist community. I tutor 8th grade students in literacy at a nearby school.

I am a casual gardener. I seem to be able to keep plants alive, but I am not very knowledgeable nor an artist.

Local concerts, plays and other entertainment activities are on my calendar too.

And don't forget my grandchildren! Four of them: 7 1/2 yr old girl, 6 yr. old boy, and identical twin girls almost 1 1/2 yrs old!
I’m really good at
Getting things done for issues that I believe in or solving problems that need to be dealt with.
Keeping my word when I will do something for you.
Being a solid friend and confidant.
For the right woman, I am a devoted lover.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am friendly. I will cheer you up!
I am ready to help out if I can......
I am authentic, I try to be honest. I believe that in a good relationship we contribute to each other's well being.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I enjoy some main stream movies, but mostly arts movies. I enjoy small theater performances, and an occasional marquee event.

I follow the Inquirer daily and I am an avid NPR listener. My taste in music spans the gamut.... blues, folk,rock, some jazz, classical, world music.....not rap in most cases.

I enjoy ethnic foods as well as a good diner. As mentioned earlier, I prefer smaller restaurants over lavish ones.

Network TV is low on my interest list--- Phillies baseball is a weakness.

A good game of Scrabble with my partner is a lot of fun.
The six things I could never do without
- My grandchildren.
- My relationship with my adult children.
- Companionship with a loving partner.
- My relationship with my Unitarian congregation.
- The ability to get out and about. I now know what it means to be home-bound with an injury. I smashed a heel bone in 2009. The recovery took two years and I will always have some residual consequences. I ride a bike locally. Would enjoy recreational biking with a partner.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The wonder of male and female. The many joys we can bring to each other: our bodies, our minds and a joyous spirit. And how we need to find ways to accommodate to each other's needs/wants/talents/differences. Life together is better than life alone!

The political future of our country and the world. Can we have peace? World climate change is also a concern. I wish the doubts about it would disappear! I focus more on local issues in my community.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing. I often step out on Saturday afternoons for a matinee or a French conversation group. I am not very enthusiastic about week night or late night entertainment any more. Sundays I try to attend my Unitarian congregation for the music, thought and company. Sunday afternoon is wide open.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
A wonderful woman does wonders for my spirit! I am happier when I am I in love!
You should message me if
You are actively seeking a mate and are ready for a long term, committed relationship. You live in the general Philadelphia area or are willing to relocate here.
A light meal at a neighborhood restaurant is a good place to get started! I will travel to meet you!
