A little about me...
I have been described as charming, exotic , snobbish and sexy, I prefer to think of myself as modest but eclectic in style, self confident and feminine.. I am traditional in many ways; yet, I am quite adventurous, bohemian, and liberal in other ways. I am passionate and loyal. I enjoy fine cuisine, excellent wine and cheese and superb friendships and conversation. I am passionate but do not easily fall in love. I do not like a jealous or possessive partner. I am quite independent and spiritual, I respect others and expect the same in return. I do not like vulgarity but enjoy double-entendre and wittiness. I think Life is beautiful and God is Great! I am optimistic and extroverted. I have two grand-children, a 4 year old girl and a 3 three old boy. My son is half-Greek and my daughter in law is from Porto-Rico. They live in New Jersey.
About the one I'm looking for...
I would like to meet someone who shares my essential values:: integrity, kindness, compassion, tolerance, truthfulness, fidelity, loyalty. Someone who believes in friendship, love, family and God! Someone who is educated, intelligent, self-sufficient, hard-working with high ideals and respectful. i do not tolerate bigotry, or racism.
I'd just like to add...
I'd love to travel, to share views and ideas with someone whom I am attracted to and who finds me attractive.. I enjoy reading but do not mind companionable silence. I am not really sports-minded. I believe excess in anything becomes a nuisance. I think open communication and having the same general goal in life are essential to a successful, monogamous, and long-lasting relationship. I want more than sexual intimacy with a partner; I want complicity of spirit even greater than sharing hobbies!

My Top Interests:
This is my profession and part of who I am., a life-long learner. I passionately enjoy delving into world culture, foreign languages,, especially since I am a polyglot: I speak French, Spanish, Creole fluently, know some Greek and Italian and would love to learn Portuguese, Hebrew and Arabic. Life and people fascinate me and I love to discuss the .psychological and sociological make up of the world's inhabitants, Although I am down to earth , I value the discipline of erudite people,
Family and Friends
My family and friends are an extremely important part of my life. I believe they are the essence of one's life and ultimately they are the ones who make you who you are, who you become and should be one's priorities in life rather than the accumulation of worldly possessions.. My motto is God First, family second and career third. In the end only how one treats people in all walk of life really counts. I live by the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Be sincere!
I travel extensively and enjoy visiting historical places, eat different cuisine and familiarize myself with other cultural backgrounds. Traveling broadens the mind in my opinion and enriches one's life Traveling the world allows me to view all kinds of art forms and artistic expressions., including but not limited to architecture, dance, music, theater, etc.. as well as learn from people their values, their customs, and respect them even when I do not necessarily agree with their beliefs.
