Like Italian food? One of my favorite pastimes is cooking up spicy Italian dishes. I have many different interests and am just as comfortable getting dirty in the garden, wearing a T shirt and shorts as I am getting dressed to the nines in a little black dress.
My dream of owning a home here in western Mass, has come true! Someday I would like to buy a beach house on the East End of Long Island so I can enjoy spending time with friends and family in both locations. I also want to learn how to surf. On the serious side, I have a great job as a civil servant, enjoy my work very much. As an artist, I also do calligraphy and graphic design on the side. Other interests include travel, sports (Go Red Sox!), flying, boating, classic cars, and science fiction.
I want to meet someone who likes to live life to the fullest, has many interests and is physically active. As for music I enjoy a wide variety, including classic rock, jazz, blues, country, popular music, clean hip-hop/rap, classical, and Irish. I appreciate all sorts of musical styles. I used to play the drums and would love to play them again someday. Also since I have a graduate degree, I would like to meet someone with at least a Bachelor's degree. I loved college and would like to meet someone with similar life experiences. If you do write, please also say more than just "hi" or a smiley. Let me know what sparks your interest, and let's take it from there.
I am politically liberal, and love to poke fun of the Republicans. If you are like minded we'll get along great ;-) I have a very silly sense of humor and like to draw zany cartoons to poke fun of the daily grind.
Even though I checked no for kids on a recent question, I have to add that kids are definitely OK if you are widowed. Divorced a long time ago with kids, all is settled is OK as well. Please, no separated guys. Thank you
Separated, a Republican, tea party type, racist, homophobic or bigoted, don't even bother. I am here to meet the RIGHT person and the right person is a fellow liberal who enjoys life.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Get together at a coffeehouse to enjoy some coffee and conversation. There's nothing like a good cup of joe!
