I am a medical journalist, singer and interested in the world. I am very open-minded but I also have some old-fashioned values. I am fascinated by history, old songs, old books and old European cities. My family is Irish and I lived in London for eight years, an experience that had a big impact on me.
I have a good sense of humor and am genuine. Would like to meet a man who is honest and has integrity. Other valued qualities are open-minded, romantic, creative, intelligent, attractive and funny.
In my free time, I like to see music, usually jazz, country, blues, folk, but I am open to almost all genres. I am interested in going to cultural events and enjoy seeing movies on the big screen, especially independent and foreign film. I love to walk and enjoy being outdoors also.
I love to read though I haven't had much time to do so lately. Enjoy literature and non-fiction. Books I enjoyed the most in the last few years include:
Housekeeping and Gilead (Marilynne Robinson0
Loving Frank (Nancy Horan)
Aunt Julia and the Scriptwriter (Mario Vargas Llosa)
Light Years (James Salter)
Eucalyptus (Murray Bail)
I hate to admit it but I am a big fan of most crime/mystery shows on TV.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I probably would like to keep it casual, coffee or a drink would be good! Or if you like music, let's do that!
