A little about me...
I'm going to keep it 'LITE" here.I have been single for a few years. I sold my large house and am now a happy renter in downtown Bellevue and thoroughly enjoy my reinvented urban/suburban lifestyle. My interests/activities include working out/swimming//film/music/meeting friends//happy hour/reading/ wineries TRAVELING, photography, architecture, NCAA Bball/stanley cup/MOTOWN/Jazz/ SAM /Town Hall/ dancing. I also love cooking and entertaining at home. I hit the gym for swimming/ working out at least three times per week' and am in great shape. walks on the beach -seemingly mandatory on this site-are always a winner!.
Though .I'm a 'kid from Detroit' most of my summers were spent on the east coast- Philadelphia, DC and the Jersey shore before it was the 'Jersey Shore' . I still have a bit of an east coast demeanor- direct and honest with a little kibitzing thrown in.
I have a very upbeat, positive,youthful and easy going persona. Friends tell me I am funny, smart, have a beautiful smile, a keen fashion sense and still a 'head turner' when entering a room.
I own a a thriving business and enjoy working and remaining 'in the loop'- with an 'exit strategy' in place if an opportunity arises.
About the one I'm looking for...
