My self-summary
This is a recent picture. Good genes - my mum is 88 and looks 70 at the most. I'm a widowed, youngish 60 year old looking for friendship and potentially more. If dating, I prefer to date one guy at a time to see where things go. Like intellectual and emotional connection before fully exploring sexual passion. I'm very happy with my life, but would like male companionship.

I would NOT be a good match with anyone who wants a one night stand or is politically conservative or fundamentalist religionwise (is that a word?). I'm Christiany-Buddhisty. I love fun, exploring new places, hiking, museums, nature and people. I can be bubbly and very outgoing sometime and also quiet and contemplative.

Humor is very very important to me. I love to laugh and make people laugh. My sense of humor can be a bit wacky at times - love the old Saturday Night Live, Monty Python, Stephen Colbert, Trevor Noah.

Interests: family, friends, my dogs, science, mysteries, music (singing and composing and just listening to jazz, rock, classical), travel, canoeing, dancing, movies or cuddling up to watch one at home, soccer and basketball on the telly. For those who live in NC, I won't reveal whether I'm a UNC or Duke fan just yet. You'll have to wait to find that out.

I come from a very diverse extended family - Irish, French, Spanish, Asian, Mediterranean, and enjoy diverse people and cultures.

I'm about 10-15 pounds beyond the skinny, I'd been most of my life, right now, after focussing for a couple years on helping a family member recover from major surgery, and now I'm back to eating healthy and walking/hiking regularly. More me time from now on...yay!
