My self-summary
I am interested in someone who is intelligent, assertive, has a sense of humor, can laugh at himself (life's too short not to laugh!), outgoing, romantic and passionate, has a great smile, and nice eyes. Eyes say a great deal about a person. And a great smile just makes me smile more :-). Open communication is also extremely important. Ultimately, I'm looking for a long term relationship with someone who is less than 2 hours driving distance.

I prefer warm weather to cold. A beach, white sand, pretty blue water and palm trees.. my zen! I love to be silly, laugh and experience new things. I also like to explore wineries. Give me a cold Savignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio any day!

I also enjoy working out at the gym and taking tae kwan do classes. I like to hike, bike, run, and sometimes just go for a long walk with my ipod (usually listening to the Kane Show - so I am laughing while I am walking!). Basically, if I'm outside (and it's warm enough!) I'm happy!

I have two children. My son 24 and my daughter is 20. Weird not to have teenagers any more! :-)

I run a non-profit creativity educational organization in Virginia for preschool - college age levels. It is an international non-profit organization and is my "volunteer" job - But I love it!

I love sci fi (yup - I'm a nerd! :-)) - got my B.S. in Astronomy from Penn State and M.Ed and PhD from UVA in education. I taught for 10 years - first year I taught HS physics. I was a professor at a university for 14 years - through this summer teaching graduate education courses. I am now working for DOD. I have a theatre background... used to perform. I've produced 10 shows for a community theatre group when my daughter started to get involved in theatre. I love seeing shows, listening to live music...almost any kind. Also like lots of current music - very eclectic tastes..

I grew up in NY - Queens and Long Island - but I've lived in VA for 26 years now!

I'm not a cook - but I'm a good student! Teach me! I do bake a mean cheesecake though. I actually apologized to my kids for not always having a home-cooked meal for them and my son said, "Mom, you've never been stereotypical. Why start now?" I hugged him!

I keep getting asked if I am really 5 ft.. YES!! Really!! :-)

I am not religious, but I do respect all beliefs. Although I also respect everyone's opinions and views, if you like Trump or the TEA party - we are not a good match.

Please have pictures on your profile. I will not respond if there are no pictures.
