I live with 2 younger men--my son and a rescue dog-- so you would think there's enough testosterone around me already but I am looking to meet new friends and maybe enjoy a relationship if I'm lucky! My youngest son will be graduating high school this year even though it doesn't seem possible! We also have two sister cats that someone left on our driveway a few years ago.
I enjoy great classic movies, music, and books. I love Turner Classic Movies--real classics-- and enjoy Sinatra, Michael Buble, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, Bonnie Raitt, jazz, R&B(Barry White, Luther Vandross),etc. I love old musicals, romantic comedies and westerns, enjoy science fiction, and even some action films. I prefer classic films in general although a good film is good whenever it was made. I love to read fiction and non-fiction--biographies, history, novels, religion, almost anything that strikes my fancy.I read cookbooks like novels and even use them to cook at times!
I enjoy crafts, arts, and singing. Spring,summer, and fall I'm in my garden tending to my roses, hydrangeas, lilies, etc. Winters I have herbs and tropical plants to keep me busy. I try to set aside some time for meditation most days whether a guided meditation or connecting with nature. I look forward to new experiences and new friends!
I have degrees in psychology, speech pathology and law although I ended up in social service--lots of job satisfaction, not as much money--LOL!. I also have a great deal of medical knowledge and experience--both professional and personal through caregiving and advocacy-so it has been an interesting life journey so far!
I grew up in Upstate NY and went to school down south, traveled to Europe and Asia in my youth (and hope to do more traveling again), and worked down south for a while before returning to upstate NY for family reasons. It's my turn to have some fun and write the next chapter of my life!
I work in the area of substance use help and am getting ready to launch a side business but everyone needs some fun sometime, right?
I would like to meet someone to share life and experiences with and have some fun! Just dating is fine as well as a committed relationship if it occurs. Right now I am getting my feet wet in the dating pool--just looking for the right person to jump in with!

Any quiet venue where good conversation and getting to know each other can happen
