First, I enjoy going to cultural events: plays, concerts, art exhibits, 3 or 4-star movies,Second,I really do enjoy ballroom and other forms of social dancing and think it's a great activity for a man and woman to enjoy doing together. Third: cooking and entertaining friends
The most influential person in my life has been
3 top qualities are emotional warmth, high level intelligence, and honesty/integrity.
The first thing people notice about me
My smile and animated facial expressions. My emotions are transparent on my face when I'm engaged in conversation. I probably wouldn't make a good poker player.
The last book I read and enjoyed
"The Case for Israel", by Alan Dershowitz I liked that Dershowitz laid out the facts, clearly and dispassionately, which one needs to have at one's fingertips to counter the pro-Palestinian spin-machine.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- Both my parents -
- That my childrearing efforts paid off in producing wonderful children
- That I am not financially or emotionally needy
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
That I'm really quite non-threatening and non-competitive, though it may appear otherwise.

A little more about me
I've long been attracted to things Mediterranean--peoples, cultures, languages, not to mention the cuisines and mild climate. For the next stage of life, I am willing to move anywhere I don't have to be freezing cold for too long. I hate Chicago winters and am striving to create a lifestyle without them. Hoping to find a mate with whom I can share compatible lifestyle goals.
