I have just moved to Buffalo Grove after living in Akron, OH for 37 years. I am a very honest person, and will not "play games". My friends would say I am very loyal, have a quick wit, and good sense of humor, and that I am a thoughtful, compassionate person, who has a lot of passion to share with the right man. I can often see the humor in most situations. I'm well-grounded and have a secure sense of self. I like casual evenings.....maybe cooking out or dinner and a movie. I have 3 sons, 2 daughters-in-law, and 4 terrific (of course!) grandchildren, all of whom live in the Chicago area.I'm fortunate to have a wonderful relationship with all of them. Do you like dogs? I'm a dog-owner (of well-trained dogs!).
