I am a happy person who enjoys genuine people in her life. I am a proud mother of two and my youngest still lives with me. I enjoy good conversation, cooking/eating, sipping a nice glass of wine, taking long walks at the park or the beach, going to theater / musicals / concerts / museums, traveling, and love seeing my family & friends. I very much like hosting friends or family in my home. i watch TV sometimes, mostly for news or sports (soccer, NBA, Olympics) or a special feature show. I am a fan of Netflix -- foreign films, period pieces.
I am very accomplished professionally & personally. I am fluent in English and Spanish, and I can also read some French. I am honest to myself and others. I am looking to date and build a relationship if I find the special one here. I will not lead you on if I don't feel a connection after we meet in person. I will be respectful, but frank and will let you know.
I find that I am most attracted to a world traveler; not so much because he has the means to travel, but rather because of the enrichment that exposure and appreciation for other cultures provides. I prefer a college educated, refined gentlemen whose age is from 42 to 52 yrs old. While I do not seek perfection, I am particular about a man's appearance and his good manners. Good personal hygiene is important to me; and I will take the effort to look presentable for you so I expect the same in return. I am not looking for a text buddy as I connect best with people in person. That is the most effetive way to find out whether there is chemistry between us. If you prefer to text endlessly, we are not a good match; I will be turned off soon and you will know it.
Online dating has been interesting, to say the least; as I'm sure many of you can relate. Because of the few people I have dated so far, my profile has warranted edits to add some specificity. Yes, we live and learn. I will not run away. If my edits here have not scared you away and you are interested in meeting me, please send me a message. I will extend you the courtesy of a response. I wish you the best in your search!

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd love to meet for brunch or lunch to introduce myself and learn more about you. We can decide on the place together.
