I am myself, never tried to be who I am not, think about it, that would be a lot of work to pretend, rather than just being. I have always known what I wanted in life and although it might take a long time, I usually forge ahead....In other words I do not compromise because I'd rather be alone than unhappy. My life trials have given me a better appreciation of the little things in life, so rather than looking at the big picture, I take the time to admire nature's beauty (we have so much of it here in Southern California). Speaking of which, here I am, finally, it may have taken 64 years...but I made it!
I am a native Italian, therefore cooking is in my DNA and I enjoy it, along with my passion for healthy foods, as I was taught since I was a little girl and I truly believe that "you are what you eat", in fact scientists are now discovering that foods can heal you.
I enjoy long walks (an easy way to stay in shape), an occasional GOOD movie on the big screen, I love opera and the theater and of course music, from classical to modern (no rap).
There has to be a "spark" with my partner, although, I know it won't be easy to find because, I am sure, you are looking for that, as well...
I want to be able to be myself with you, so that I can express all my good traits, like my passion, my generosity, my caring. I don't want you to think that I am perfect...far from it.
We have to share similar values and morals in order to have respect for each other and that's very important...everything else falls into place.
