I'm often described as 'sweet' - w/just enough edge to keep things fun/interesting. Am also aware of the world, having done my share of living/traveling in other countries. I'm a voracious reader and ex-reporter and stay in shape w/Bikram yoga (sort of like yoga in a sauna). Israel holds a special place in my heart and I've even dodged missiles there for my work. Kindness, humor, intellectual curiousity and compassion were inculcated in me early on. Looking for my partner for life - someone who similarly wants a committed relationship and will join me in putting 100%+ into that effort, celebrating the good and working in tandem to get through life's tougher moments. I speak a couple of other languages, which can make life more interesting and comprehensible to me, and I appreciate others who've developed special talents or passions in areas that interest them.
