Not looking for marriage per-se but would date with the hope of a long term committed relationship. I am independent yet compromising. I consider myself a good communicator and listener. I work out regularly but I am not a fanatic. I have a contagious laugh, love to drive, the outdoors. I text regularly..:) Forced into that many years ago… I’ll explain later but a hint for now... two daughters. Play volleyball year round, beach volleyball at Long Beach in the summer. I enjoy cooking, cooking together, eating of course ;) as well as dining out. I enjoy reading, wander through bookstores, discussing anything topical, long walks, walking on the boardwalk, walking on the beach in the evenings, day outings, hiking upstate, weekend trips to wineries, bed & breakfast (if the bed is long enough). Enjoy various types of music, comedy shows, movies, sporting events and live performances. I like touring around the City (Manhattan – SoHo, Village, etc.), biking on Long Island, skiing in the winter. As they say… It’s about enjoying the journey and not the destinations, although memoirs are very important. Regardless of the list of activities I also enjoy relaxing, cuddling, hanging out and talking about the day’s events... being present and relaxed with a partner is a wonderful part of life.
I’m open but I'll suggest that after a conversation or two on the phone we could spend time together over coffee, tea or drinks.
The first meeting can be short so that we can have the experience resonate.
The place is wherever she is comfortable. Lady’s choice…
