Since I am an empty nester my availability for dating has increased. I have been single again for 13 years, initially very busy being THE parent. As of these past few years there is more time for ME and I am ready to meet someone special. I am comfortable meeting people and like to do so face-to-face so you will find me less likely to text and email back and forth for months.
I love to be outdoors and miss it terribly in the winter. I long for sunshine and warm weather so I can; take a drive out east with the top down, paddle a kayak along the North Shore admiring the homesteads that you will not see from the road, hiking some of the many trails afforded us in this neck of the woods, spreading my blanket outside the Jones Beach theatre to listen to a long awaited summer concert while feasting on dinner, attending one of many festivals to people watch and sample new foods, put together a surprise picnic for a special person some evening after work, browse new neighborhoods that I have not yet visited on Long Island and in the boroughs, take a ferry and my bicycle to Fire or Shelter Island for the day, have a fabulous summer barbeque with family/great friends, just to name a few.
