About the one I'm looking for...
Good moral values, the typical-trust, kindness, monogamy. Superficially I seek @5'10- 6', full hair, NOT BALDING, professional, not blue collar, no tattoos&piercing, casually well dressed Ralph Lauren, no white sneakers. We ALL have preferences, so don't be judgmental here, OK? No nasty notes from insecure men please. Seeking a unique man w/ male friends, not a serial player w/ lots of women 'friends'. Someone in good emotional mental and physical health, who has recovered from the pain of loss/divorce which in my opinion takes a few years! Have you looked inside and adjusted yourself a bit? Observed, learned, and now a better person? Accept me as I am-don't try to change me? Your kids are grown, kind, close yet independent.. They would welcome Dad's new love.Missed marriage, kids and divorce, so I'd welcome your older children/young grandchildren. A GREAT HELPMATE. Ambitious, financially successful, educated conversationalist, thoughtful,is what you're about! SAILING anyone?? SKIING?
I'd just like to add...
LIVE A LIFE WORTH RETELLING...NOW !! Best memories are of people, not things--cooking/entertaining friends&family, a beach bonfire, singing carols around the piano, laughing at a racy joke. Kayaking, sailing, SKIING, biking, foreign cinema, live theatre, antiquing & auctions, restoring furniture and old homes, art galleries, lectures, book signings, great books (classics, novels, biographies, history). FYI, I AM WILLING TO RELOCATE WITHIN THE NORTHEAST,EUROPE. WILL YOU RELOCATE ALSO??? I will expose you to many new things; will you reciprocate? A grateful giver and taker--you too?Let's play nice together.

My Top Interests:
Crafts and Creating
Enjoy museums occasionally, love taking drawing and painting classes, and lectures on the arts and artists. Designing home products. Touring FLWright architectural wonders, Victorian gardens and homes. Enjoy people and antiques, BOTH with a colorful history.
I'd love to take cooking and wine courses at the Culinary Institute in NY & Calif, and overseas. I have done so in Morocco and Italy. I like the idea of group progressive dinners at each others home, the beach BBQ, or restaurant hopping, book clubs centering on food and guest lecturers.
Combining travel with educational learning--Spanish classes in Spain, art classes in Florence, cooking classes in France, hiking and history in the Aztecs and Mayas, touring BBC/NBC/ABC News, Chelsea Flower Show in London, factory tours-how are things made? WHO thinks of this??
