I grew up in the Bronx in a traditional Italian family. I enjoy good conversation, and visiting with friends and family.
Music and dancing are at the top of my list for fun. I enjoy all kinds of music, especially soft rock of the 70's and 80's, blues, ballroom and swing, latin, and the opera. I like dining in and out, I love to travel, enjoy hiking and walking, beaches, swimming, boating, the theatre (which I used to have season passes), museums, and movies, and lately playing pickleball. I also find it nice to just hang out with a good book, and hold hands.
I had a wonderful career working with special needs children, which was very rewarding to me, because it helped me learn and grow, and appreciate my family, and my own life. I am now involved in various volunteer projects including Rotary, and the CancerCare Resource Center.
My goal is to enjoy life the the fullest, stay as healthy as possible, and be with people who make me feel good, and hopefully, I make them feel good to be around me.
I hope to meet a man that would like to share wonderful times (hopefully we have chemistry), and eventually share time with family and friends, travel, and explore new experiences and interests, and NEVER forget the importance of romance.
On a first date I would like to meet over coffee, or lunch, and then maybe take a walk, and talk. I think a first date should just be a get acquainted time to see if there is any interest or attraction.
