My self-summary
I'm comfortable with myself, take good care of myself and lead a balanced life. I'm an independent lady who is genuine, caring, affectionate and energetic. I'm 101 pounds of fun, have a good sense of humor, love to laugh and enjoy life. I am a good listener and relish good and easy conversation. I care about my appearance, exercise and eat healthy. I'm also a lover of dark chocolate desserts and must confess, I do at times succumb to these temptations. I'm as comfortable in jeans as in heels and dresses and do enjoy "puttin on the ritz" if the occasion permits. I value commitment, honesty and trust. I believe in friendship and romance.
You: Are fun, genuine and make me laugh! Are a good listener and a good communicator. You also value commitment, honesty and trust. You enjoy life and will share some of my interests as well as opening my world to many new ones. We would complement each other, have mutual respect and understanding, support each other, laugh, love, make beautiful memories together and help each other be the best we can be.

I am genuine, affectionate, and fun
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a retired teacher who has continued working by doing private tutoring. I love to travel and have been fortunate enough to have visited approximately 50 countries. I love NYC, its culture, the ballet and Broadway theatre, museums, trying new restaurants. I love to read, particularly historical fiction and am somewhat of a politics junkie. Anything that opens the opportunity for a lively discussion, with the emphasis on "discussion" not vitriolic responses.

Did I mention dark chocolate?
Notice I often don't follow the rules
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to find you because I know you are out there somewhere, our tenuous future on this earth if we don't change our ways
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating out with a friend and then going to live theatre or the movies, watching MSNBC or listening or NPR, reading a good book
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm still a romantic, believe in love and still hopeful I'll find that very special someone to cherish and spoil
You should message me if
You think we could be friends, want a long term, committed relationship and so much more because I'm ready! Are you?
The two of us
