I like my home to be comfortable and filled with things I like to look at and listen to. Art, dance and music capture my soul. Etta James, Sarah Vaughan and Cannonball Adderley are like comfort food. But all music is worth a listen.
And speaking of comfort food, Thai and Maryland eastern shore style seafood are at the top of my list. But anything that tickles my tongue is a turn-on. I lived in San Francisco for a year and was surrounded by foodies, mixologists and sommeliers. I spent three months in New Orleans with an expense account. I’m fascinated by the ritual of it all and totally enjoy good food and drink.
I’m a lifelong learner – always gravitating towards things I’m afraid of, don’t know or can’t do yet. I’m a dancer: ballroom, Salsa and other nightclub Latin dances, and Disco. I taught part time at Arthur Murray’s for a few years, and other venues after that. I’ve been studying guitar, only 9,000 hours to go. I recently joined Alexandria Singers and found a great voice coach. Wonder where this will take me? I like to read; I’m a sponge for knowledge - advances in health, neuropsychology, genetics and diet - amazing stuff.
What I’m looking for:
Aside from wanting to find someone who can put up with my silly butt for the next 40 years (always optimistic), I’d like someone who has the ability and desire to create a relationship that’s going to be good for both of us; best friends, best lovers, understanding and supporting the things that we both need to be content with and excited about life. I like curious, positive, friendly people; people who give other people the benefit of the doubt. I like honest, assertive women who don’t mind taking charge for the things that they are good at, I really don’t need or want to dominate anyone. The honesty part is really important to me; no secrets. For me, after a reasonable period of time of getting to know and trust each other, secrets are a deal breaker. I can’t let my problems or relationship problems go unresolved for very long. I work hard at understanding and working through issues that cause me pain in life. There aren’t many things that I’m too embarrassed to talk about. I’m a very kind, patient, nonjudgmental person, and I want a partner of the same ilk. I’m a yapper (like to talk), and I’m very interested in people, I go deep quickly. And there are times when I need to reflect and figure out how I feel about things. Hope you’re OK with that.
tease, joke and banter. Not malicious, but sometimes it appears a
little rough for people who have led sheltered lives.
My food tastes are eclectic; I lived in San Francisco for a year, New Orleans for three months, I know how to eat and I like it spicy! My dad was a native of Brooklyn NY and was an expert in searching out little dives that offered the best in culinary delights. I think it must be genetic.
I've been a musician in some way since high school. I was a Jazz major in college. For me, dancing is all about the music. I love music.
My ears – how else could I hear?
My eyes – how else could I see?
My fingers – how else could I touch?
Margaritas, chips and salsa
That’s seven, never was good at math.
