I'm a bit of a romantic, but also down-to-earth. I have 2 children, one who is on her own and one who comes home during breaks from college. I enjoy dancing (waltzing, swing, and Israeli), cooking nice dinners at home and going out to dine at a good restaurant. I enjoy theater, music (jazz, soft rock), movies (both oldies with Audrey Hepburn, Kathryn Hepburn or Humphrey Bogart, and new comedies and thrillers), as well as watching a good video at home. I am ready to start a relationship with the right someone, but am more than happy to begin as friends. I value family highly, and want to stay in the Seattle area.
