The one thing I am passionate about...
My son....he's the best thing in my life! Together we've been through some really tough times and have always gotten through it all. He's a terrific young man who wants to be a doctor.....can't be more proud of him!!
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy traveling especially out of the country, love Italy would like to got to England and Ireland next. Enjoy almost everything about NYC, theatre, plays, museums, Nantucket, US traveling, any location near the sea, dining out & trying new restaurants, walkiing, long drives, weekend getaways; Some hobbiies of mine are: Painting, writing and photograpy.
The most influential person in my life has been
Someone who is honest, sympathetic, caring, kind, generous and someone who is a real gentleman. I believe in equality amoung men and women but I also beleive in cetain basic traditions. Love it when men open doors, pull out a chair and are respectful towards women!
The first thing people notice about me
That I'm very easy to talk to....people just love to open up to me.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Under the Tuscan Sun. Even though I've seen the movie a dozen times (I'm a real romantic) I had to read the book. The author and her husband purchsed a home in Tuscany, renovated it, and are spending all their spare time there. Something I can only dream about...which is ok with me. Tuscany is SO beautiful!!! If you've been there you'll understand. If not you should go!!!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My wonderful son who has been a real pleasure to raise...and always makes me proud!
- My caring family who is always there for me and visa versa. We're a close Italian family.
- God who always gives me the strenght to get through the tough times so I can enjoy the great times.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Because I'm so independant, people think I don't need them. Having been a single mom for so long has made me tough but not hardened. So please be patient and give me a chance you won't be disappointed, I'm a bit shy at first but a great catch.
Friends Describe me as
Affectionate, Caring, Creative, Generous
A little more about me
Well, I really like men who can show me that chivalry is still alive. I don' t like men who are concieted or arrogant. I'm looking for someone genuine and kind, someone who doesn't lie or cheat; and someone who isn't looking for the perfect 10.
