My self-summary
(To all the handsome virile young men who have an urge to contact me...while I'm flattered, please don't waste your time. I seek a mature man, near my age, one who will walk into the sunset with me. I'm not interested in being your Mrs. Robinson). That said:

I love sunsets and sunrises, especially on the beach, the sound of the surf, international travel, adventure, weekend getaways, gourmet cooking, dinner parties, delicious food, good wine, boating on a lake, camping, the coast, sand and surf, sun worship, swimming pools, a good book on a rainy night, a good book anytime, Bloody Marys, ballroom dancing, a civilized bike ride, the seashore and the canals of Naples near my home. I enjoy a brisk walk, snorkeling, kayaking, an exciting mystery or drama, a romantic film that touches my heart, theater, a day in Central Park, an eclectic assortment of music, I like a good story well told. I'm an excellent listener, I have an adult sense of humor, sometimes playful. I love shared laughter that brings us to tears, I value promises kept, and punctuality. I feel sexy in dresses and 4" heels. With the right man I'm affectionate, sensual, extremely romantic, supportive and loyal. The man I long for keeps his body clean, he smells good, his hair, teeth and breath are fresh. For me...without excellent personal hygiene there is no place to begin. I'm a non-smoker and the man of my dreams finds smoking just as repugnant as I do. I'm a one man woman and he can count on me in the good times and the bad. When he reaches for me, I'll be there. I'll listen when he needs to talk, I'll be silent when he wants solitude. When I speak my intention is to have something worthwhile to say...the man I seek will want to hear it when I do. I adore early morning cuddling, spooning, big shoulders, and as chemistry is essential, I prefer a man who has a hardy, beefy or muscular build and must be on the taller side. I love spa massages, affection, warm tight embraces, eye contact, fireplaces, flickering candles, whispering in the dark, romantic interludes, long soft wet kisses lace.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
thinking about and being grateful for how fortunate I've been in life. Many of my dreams have been realized...I have excellent health, happy children, loving family, good lifelong friends. I'm grateful to live on the island of Naples with a view of the marina out my living room window, I ride my bike daily surrounded by water. I think about the international travel I've been lucky to have done...from the jungles of the Congo to Zanzibar to the Himmalayas...the Taj Mahal to the Eiffel Tower, from Nairobi to the Greek islands, the Alps and the cliffs of Dover and the exciting places in between. I think about the friends I made along the way.... the absolute joy I felt through those exotic experiences. Most of all while thinking about my good fortune, I'm hoping for the next adventure, the next destination...and I think about the man of my dreams who will do it with me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching a sunset with my friends....a little food, a little wine and lots of laughter!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
:-)))))) I'm not willing......
You should message me if
You're looking for a woman of quality...thoroughly feminine, one who likes being a woman...and a genuinely good person. If you are a man who is proud of himself and his success, a man of means who is strong, smart and confident.... Yet humble enough to be kind, a man that often thinks of others first. If you genuinely like women and want to treat yours with care and protection. If you want travel and adventure with the last love of your life.....I may be the one.

A footnote:
I'm not comfortable with introductions on the phone. I prefer to make eye contact. Please don't send your telephone number and ask to chat. Let's meet over a glass of wine, in a quiet place, perhaps by the ocean.
The two of us
