My self-summary
The woman who attracts me will be close to or living in Philadelphia and will have a mind of her own. She will enjoy a man who doesn't think that he is the king of the mountain, who has a soft side. Although we will share mutual physical attraction, the quality of the relationship is the primary factor. I am looking for a long term love.

I own a small house at the edge Philadelphia's Wissahickon Valley in Fairmount Park. I will enjoy sharing the peaceful place with you. And if you are happy in your home, I hope I would be comfortable there.

You will enjoy the full array of cultural and entertainment activities that Philadelphia has to offer, as I do, 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 if we can find the places and a budget to agree on! 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.UU's are open minded, service oriented and generally enjoy life and making a difference for others.

Let's get together and have a snack together!
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: 8 yr old girl, 6 yr. old boy, and identical twin girls over 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!
