A little about me...
Website is generous on weight description. I was almost obese. Began Medifast diet 6/14. As of Nov 11, 4 pounds from target weight.
I retired from the U.S. government (Washington DC) in April 2010 and moved back to New York in October 2011. I live adjacent to the Metro North train station so I can easily go dancing in the city and am close to major highways to drive to my family in Connecticut or go sight seeing on Long Island.
Dancing shows vulnerability because the true, inner self comes to the surface. I'm looking for a woman who ISN'T afraid to reveal her feelings on (and off) the dance floor, from the formality of ballroom, the heat of Latin, the playfulness of Swing, and deep passion of Argentine Tango.
Besides dance, I also enjoy theater (thank goodness for Goldstar!!) and travel, especially by train. I've travelled coast-to-coast on Amtrak and VIA. I've travelled to Spain, Switzerland, Canada, Argentina, Bermuda and I don't remember where else.
Besides dancing, I prepare my income taxes in my spare time and consider myself a NYC transit historian.
About the one I'm looking for...
--A relationship that begins on the dance floor- - and continues off the dance floor and leads to a LTR. We express ourselves through dance in ways we don't realize. Dancing causes the real self to come to the surface, where we have to deal with who we are and who we want to become. Self introspection leads to growth.
- - A woman who understands the reason I haven't married is because I haven't found the right woman. My ex-fiancé and I lived together for five years before I realized she wasn't the right woman. Our break up was just like a divorce, without lawyers. Some women think there's something wrong with me because I've never been married. Well, I don't think there's something wrong with a woman who couldn't stay married. People change. I know this is New York, but don't be so fast to judge somebody.
-- A woman who lives in Westchester, Nassau, or Fairfield Counties, Manhattan, Queens, or Da Bronx . I'm not spending my retirement sitting in traffic.
I'd just like to add...
love walking around the city taking digital photos, especially water views and trains, so I can save them to my computer.
It's a BIG bonus if you dance Argentine tango. It's still a bonus if you dance ballroom, Latin or Swing. NO bonus for dancing Hustle, Meringue nor Salsa.

My Top Interests:
I go to my apartment's fitness center just about everyday. I listen to classical music cassettes while stretching.
Family and Friends
I'm happy to have moved from Washington, DC to be closer to my father and brother.
Dancing isn't listed as an interest. But you need music to dance (at least I do) so I picked music. I listen to Argentine tango while driving and try not to get carried away, driving tango figures on I-684. I sometimes listen to WQXR.
