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 and................black lace.

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.
