I'm Harvey . Born in Chicago, I have a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Chicago and a Masters ffrom the much less prestigious SIU-Edwardsville. I worked for Social Security for a number of years. Religion, family, and friends are important to me.. I like going to blues clubs, reading, and seeing plays, I'm also very curious, outgoing, and interested in many things. The "New Yorker" is my favorite magazine.I'm 5'10" tall,, weigh180 pounds. .I live on the north side of Chicago near the lake, and have 2 kids, neither of whom live with me, but both have graduated college (at least) and are doing very well, just ask me. My son has been writing for the Onion full time for the past 15 years.and his sister got an M.S. in education.and teaches full time in the State of Virginia. I've had the task/great opportunity of raising them mostly by myself. It was an awesome experience. I live a very active life and am a happy optimistic person. My health could be better, but once one passes 60 some problems are bound to arise. Few of us are Rhodes Scholars, Olympic athletes, or in perfect health. I don't judge...If you're a reasonably attractive, bright, kind, and age-appropriate Chicagoland Jewish woman, that's enough for me,Take a chance. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Shabbat shalom! Sincerely, Harvey.
