A little about me...
High-energy youthful, fun loving, generous and loyal--I'm passionate about family and friends, and life in general. I totally enjoy cooking and hosting dinner parties, gardening, politics, yoga, theater, movies, all kinds of music, travel, books, nature, keeping fit and experiencing and learning new things. I have a soft spot in my heart for everything about Italy--its cuisine, culture, opera, language, and its lakes, antiquities , wines, and countryside. I'm fortunate in having had a good education and a long career in higher education. I now have my own small consulting business. I enjoy thoughtful discussions as much as I love having a good time--especially romantic ones with a very special guy!
About the one I'm looking for...
I'm interested in a man who is intelligent and self-confident but can laugh at himself; someone who would enjoy having an interesting political or other discussion over dinner and wine (prepared by me) with a good opera or some golden oldies as background music. How about topping that off with some romantic dancing? I would enjoy being with a guy who is funny, kind, romantic--someone who is totally engaged with the world and believes in living each day to its fullest! I'm extremely active and would not be happy with a guy who wants to spend his life in front of a TV. Come on! Let's live it up--in every way possible and without a lot of drama and other nonsense.
I'd just like to add...
My very extended family and friends are very important to me. My three grown children lead independent lives and are very happy to see me pursuing my own interests.

I love being fit--particularly through yoga and pilates....having a firm body makes me feel terrific and energetic.
Nature and Outdoors
I've loved the natural world from my childhood...my dad taught me the beauty of the out-of-doors--even the beauty of a petal of a plant...I've never lost the ability to appreciate and marvel at the joys of nature.
How could anyone not appreciate and hold in awe the beauty that men and women have created throughout the centuries! Modern, renaissance art, the beauty that mankind creates is thrilling!
