Filled with romance and a passion for life. Love the arts, exploring simple things such as flea markets, estate sales, galleries, concerts, theater, walks. As a freelance photographer for most of my life, I am very passionate about my work, it's really a way of life, not a job.
Washingtonian, yes we do exist, and still have many friends and family in the area. I enjoy socializing and do best with someone fairly outgoing too.
Mom of two daughters (17 and 21). Have younger daughter every two weeks for two weeks at a time. Leaves the rest for exploring my life.
Tennis is great when the weather is good, (for fun, not competition) and once in a while an occasional Yoga class!
I’d like to travel more. I lived in Germany as a teen and loved Europe – I skiied the Alps, toured castles and saw plays in London. (I haven't even seen Italy but would love to.)
I enjoy the FDR memorial for a romantic walk and talk, picnic and a concert at Wolf Trap, exploring the towns along the Eastern Shore or Annapolis. New England towns, NYC for theater and photo fun. Ellicott city and Baltimore.
Do any of these things leave you smiling?
I’m really good at
socializing with people, making people feel at ease. I'm also
artistic (painting, drawing...) Great with kids. Smiling. Well
there are other things too but I'd rather meet you first before
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and thick hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Homeland, Mad Men
Theater - comedies, musicals, drama - Kennedy Center, Arena Stage, National Theater, Strathmore, Warner Theater, NYC
Mitch Albom - The Five People You Meet in Heaven. Anything by John Irving.
Catching a good concert at Wolf Trap. Love Marc Cohn and make sure I see him at Birchmere - Great show!
I love movie soundtracks - such as "Meet Joe Black", "Cider House Rules", "Field of Dreams", "How to Make an American Quilt". Also up and coming artist - Joshua Radin. Then there's Big Band, Classic Rock, Acoustic, some New Age...

The six things I could never do without
the love for my kids
some really good ice cream
plus a fantastic partner
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My spirit is a good ten years younger than my age. At this stage of
my life I'm interested in dating men in their late 40's to late
50's. Please respect this.
You should message me if
you think you are someone who can make me smile. Share with me your favorite DC area spot and why - or someplace you'd like to experience. Let's have some fun. I'm attracted to a man who knows how to be a gentleman - walks a woman to her car, holds the door open, ..... the things your mother should have taught you. I'm a romantic at heart and would do well with someone who feels the same way. Are you good at communicating your feelings? Don't mind a little PDA from time to time? At this stage in my life, I want to experience life with my partner - there is still so much to share and learn.
