My life has been an interesting one. I grew up in NYC but raised my family in a small town in upstate NY where I was the director of a university program meeting people from around the world. I was one of those lucky people who had a job that I loved. In 2009 I retired, and I moved to California to be closer to my daughter and her family. I have two delightful grandsons in Studio City who I enjoy spending time with. I also have a son son and his family in Texas. Now I'd like to find that special someone to love where the chemistry and companionship meld into a beautiful relationship. After working for so many years, I am ready to play. My photo is recent and my age is true. I know people lie on this site, but I don't believe that that's any way to begin a relationship. Perhaps I am naive.
