My philosophy is to worry about only those things that you can control, because you can't do anything about the other stuff anyway. I'd rather expend my energy on worthwhile endeavors!
My faith is important to me, it has guided me through all of the rough times, and helps me to appreciate the many blessings that I have received.
I enjoy hiking, cooking, tasting wines, swing dancing and I'm learning ballroom dance. I coach youth basketball - boys 16-17 and girls 6-7 yrs old. I'm in my 21st year of coaching.
I love music - Bach to rock,: Baroque to British Invasion 60's music, Motown & do--opp, Rod Stewart's American standards..
I'm a Law and Order junkie and an NCIS fan. I'm also a big Yankee fan and a Giant fan.
I was born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens, and settled in northern Westchester since 1979.
I have a married 29 year old daughter and two beautiful grand daughters. I also have a 27 year old son.
I am understanding and compassionate. I am very patient. I am confident but humble, strong but sensitive. I am passionate in whatever it is that I am doing. I am also very old school, a gentleman.
I am an incurable romantic. For me, a great date would be to prepare a beautiful dinner for you (or with you), and enjoy it by candlelight or in front of a fire. We can dance between courses, and cuddle after desert.
My perfect match would be a lady that can combine common sense and intelligence, She is well educated and can carry on great conversations. She'll be attractive - at least to me. She'll be self confident and flirtatious, but not with just anyone. She would have learned from her life experiences, but would have left most of the baggage behind her. She'll know how to have fun, but also know when to be serious. She'll know how to enjoy the journey as much as the destination.
A long walk with meaningful conversation, followed by coffee, or drinks, or a lite meal with more conversation. Let's get to know each other first, and then, if we agree, bring on the candle light!
