I am optimistic, smart and enthusiastic. While I love travelling, dining out, and cultural events, what I am really seeking is a partner to snuggle up with on a cold night and hang out with on a Sunday morning while we do the crossword on the patio. People close to me know that I am fiercely loyal and generous to the people who are important to me. I am witty -- at one time I used to perform with a comedy improvisation group. At work, I am serious and spend a lot of time working alone. So, on my off time, I enjoy socializing. I enjoy get-togethers with friends and family. I love movies of almost any kind and theater. I handle life's challenges positively -- not by being a Pollyanna -- but by being grounded, direct and getting on with things.
