I am an energetic, enthusiastic lover of new ideas and places. Travel is my passion as is just the thought of being close to someone I care about. I am a 'touchy-feely' kind of person who loves being held and having nice things whispered. I truly enjoy bridge but that is not necessary in a new relationship as I believe that a pair should have some interests not shared. Commonalities of interest are important as I found out in my marriage when it comes down to the 'nitty-gritty' a couple should share values and dreams. I have 4 grown very-independent daughters and I pride myself on that achievement.
