Hi there! I am a contented woman who enjoys her life. I have a great family and wonderful friends. I am financially secure, own my own home, and have a terrific profession that enhances my life, and helps me make a difference. I may retire in the next couple of years, but for now I fortunately have lots of time off. I love exploring Northern California, visiting interesting places, and enjoying new experiences. I enjoy photography, gardening, painting, cooking, entertaining, and most types of music. I enjoy auctions, flea markets, street fairs and festivals. I like to attend live performances, theater, opera, ballet, bands. I know a fair amount about California and local history and visit many of the museums in the Bay Area, so I make a pretty good tour guide if you want to learn more about our lovely state. I would say that I am fairly adventurous and would try most things at least twice.
I have been a widow for 11 years and I miss all the wonderful aspects of a committed relationship. I enjoy "spoiling" and being "spoiled", romance and physical expressions of love. I like having a special, important person in my life so I can share interests and learn new things.
I am attracted to taller, husky men since I am fairly tall for a woman. I would like to meet a man who is interested in a relationship, is emotionally available and has a romantic spirit. Values and kindness should be important to him.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
A first meeting could be almost anything that feels comfortable and allows for conversation. Coffee, a meal, a walk through a museum or a park would be fun.
