I've been told I'm bright (like a light bulb) and have a good sense of humor, plus I look and act much younger than my years. I'm playful and enjoy double entendres. I therefore enjoy risque humor.
I grew up in the New York metropolitan area and went to an experimental high school in the Berkshires. I then went to a small college in Kentucky, taught in NYC briefly and changed career directions by going to the NY School for Interior Design, moved to California in 1974 and worked as a Designer/Salesperson for Gump's in San Francisco for many years. I have also owned my own food distribution business. But now I'm basically retired. Presently my passion in life is to see as much of the world as I can before I'm done.
My husband passed away in early 2007 and I long for the closeness, unequivocal acceptance and emotional oneness he and I shared. It would be lovely to partake in common activities, but for me, what is most important is finding the right person to feel so comfortable with, that we will both be able to share our innermost feelings and know that the kindred and supportive elements necessary for a great relationship are intact.
The person I'm seeking would have a terrific sense of humor. My further wish list is that you would be smart, are, or have been accomplished in whatever your field of endeavor, have high self esteem, yet are down to earth and unpretentious. You should be caring and with the right person, devoted. You should expect nothing less from me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I would like us to get to know each other, and the only way that can happen is if we talk. Therefore, a movie on a first date would not be worthwhile. But a picnic, coffeehouse meeting, or a quiet, relatively inexpensive restaurant with nice ambiance would all be good.
