I am an independent, compassionate, experienced woman, open minded and open hearted, happy to have two fabulous grown kids who live out of the house, and a few great friends. I love smart and accomplished, stylish and casual. Born in San Francisco, CA, I grew up and lived in the bay area all of my life. Over the years, I have traveled to New York, Paris, Amsterdam, South Africa, Turkey, Greece, and Mexico so far, and want to see England next followed by regional trips within the US. I am very proud of my home in the wine country of California, overlooking a beautiful lake, and have enjoyed updating it and resettling. I enjoy swimming and boating on the lake and want to take up kayaking next year. I have read a lot and my long-time favorite book is Ayn Rand's Fountainhead. Fast cars and real driving always get my attention. I race up and down the hills on my way to my job as a controller for a creative company. I love the excitement of NEW, new people, new places, new ideas...and I love different...just because it's different. I am a romantic, alas, and love to share. I would love to add a sharing and caring relationship to my life.
A first date is always fun as long as you leave any grand expectations at home. Casual conversation over coffee would work. A walk ending up at a restaurant or pub for a chat or dinner, or lunch, or breakfast at two in the morning anyone?
