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 am smart and accomplished, stylish and casual. I was born in San Francisco, CA, and grew up and lived in the San Francisco bay area all of my life. I have traveled to New York, Paris, Amsterdam, South Africa, Turkey, Greece, and Mexico and want to see England next followed by regional trips within the US. I recently bought a new home in the wine country of California, overlooking a beautiful lake and have enjoyed resettling and decorating. I enjoy lake activities and driving fast to great music. Great music....hmmmmm...from classic rock to classical to melodic jazz to Buddha Bar. I have read a lot and my favorite book is Ayn Rand's Fountainhead. I love animals and recently lost my 12 year old Jack Russell terrier, Spike -- still have one very very big orange cat named Sam and a new maincoon male, Charlie. I race down the hill (I love fast cars too) to my job in a nearby town, where I work as a controller. 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 your expectations at home. Casual conversation over coffee would work. A walk in the rain ending up at a restaurant or pub for a chat or dinner, or lunch, or breakfast at two in the morning is another possibility. Or dancing...I would ALWAYS love to go dancing...
