I'm a retired teacher of ESL and enjoyed working with adults from all over the world. My personality warm and thoughtful,so I'm told. I know I'm funny. I think I'm a kind person too. I have been studying Buddhism for awhile now; I find the principles make sense and can be the solution to being happy in this world. Keeping fit, listening to music, (not crazy about country, but love jazz, classical, r&b, salsa, reggae, Middle Eastern) and reading are three areas I put time into. Also am still working on my Spanish. I love to sit around and chat over a cup of coffee or tea. Oh, and I am into eating healthy, and I like to cook. I also keep fit by walking pretty much daily, doing some exercises I learned in various Chinese exercise classes.
I have three grandchildren who live fairly close by, and I am lucky enough to see them often.
Also love to travel, near and far. My interests are in different cultures, and I prefer to go without an organized group, although in some cases that can't be avoided (ex: Asia). What else? Really love a good discussion and a good laugh with a compatible person.
I have friends of different races and countries, and that's the way I like it. And as a last word, I'm a person who needs a bit of personal space. I won't be needing to be included in all aspects of anyone else's life. Pretty easygoing in that department.
My politics could be called liberal or better, progressive. Now that I'm retired I like to spend my time, aside from travel, taking walks, reading, seeing the grands, getting in nature, getting to the City (or Oakland or Berkeley), keeping fit, enjoying a good meal in or out, love a good discussion over tea or coffee, and visiting various places around the Bay. I also like to take advantage of some of the many offerings on campus at Stanford, like concerts and visits from notable people. I also do a bit of volunteering. Sounds like a lot, but of course they're spaced out, and I do my share of vegging too.
By the way, the photos are recent. , One of them is really poor quality, but it's a photo of my passport photo. The one of me with the grands is a little older, though, like 2 years old.
The first date I ever had? Or what I would do on a first date. I think I was about 13 when my parents made me go out with the son of one of their friends. I was scared and didn't say a word except "yes" and "no". He seemed so worldly at age 15.
So to the present....A first date meeting in a cafe is fine. A nice talk over a cuppa or coffee, maybe a walk, something simple.
