Ready to meet someone for fun, companionship and possibly more. I have a 2 year plan to winter in warm weather when my youngest leaves for college. I hope you do, too!
I like a variety of fun activities including (in no particular order): coffee shops, hiking , apple picking, biking The Towpath, performing arts, comedy clubs, concerts- esp at Cain Park, bookstores...whatever.....everything is more fun with a kindred soul of the opposite sex. I am kind of a foodie, both cooking and at indep owned restaurants.
I am not religious, but I do feel connected to my Jewish culture and heritage.
A good sense of humor trumps most negatives.
Good red wine, laughter, witty banter...doesn't get any better.
My kids come first. Top priority.
Looking for more levity in life to complement my serious, hard working side.
Personal likes in a mate: smart (street or academic), open-minded, been married and preferably has kids, healthy but not obsessive, likes to go out at least a few times a month, preferably Jewish or open to my culture. Funny and warm.
Personal dislikes in a mate: smoking, tattoos , Virgos - (OK,OK apologies to Virgos. Have taken a lot of flack for this one- just don't like that fussy, controlling streak I find in Virgos. Prove me wrong)!, never been married, no kids, poor grammar/spelling. If you have a picture of your motorcycle or vehicle in your profile, it is unlikely I will be interested (c'mon - a bike featured as a loved one???).
My pictures are current.
I think meeting for coffee or a drink is a good idea for a first date. If there is chemistry, then the next date could be a hike or bike ride, dinner, show, concert or some other adventure. It should definitely include laughter!!
