I can tell you that older English majors, like old soldiers, never die or fade away, but you'll have to get to know me to find out what I think happens to us eventually! I will probably never retire, have a passion for cooking and good food, deep interest in other people and their stories and yet also have a need for private and one-on-one time, as I currently work with the public. I am also very family-oriented, with two grown daughters who are professionals and two small grandchildren who are the apples of my eye. Theater, reading, following the national and international news, opera and museum-hopping are also passions of mine. I look forward to finding someone with whom I can share all of the above. Let's talk!

I would like to meet for coffee or a meal, during which I would love to hear all about the person I am with and why he is there.
I have a very good sense of humor, am easy-going, am very loyal and interested in getting to know others, and am tactful and kind.
Past relationships have taught me that there are two sides to every person but that the positive in people usually far outweighs the negative. I have also learned that people grow and change, and that this makes being in relationship interesting and exciting.
My ability to be in relationship yet maintain my independence. While I cherish my time spent with others, I also need and am content to have alone time in my daily life. My two grown children are one of the highlights of my life, as are their two children, and I find watching them grow and change a true marvel. I also have faith in a higher Being, as He or She has manifested a true presence throughout my life. In fact, I consider life to be a true miracle in and of itself.
My perfect day would start early, so that I could see the sun rise. Then I'd share coffee and a meal with the person I care most about in my life. We would spend the day talking and doing activities we both enjoy and value...part of that would be sharing ourselves with other people in good conversation. We would both cook a meal we could really enjoy toward the close of day, and end it by thanking each other for being together and by snuggling close together as we fell asleep.
