What am I doing on J-date? Well, for a start, I'm a goy, but just about everyone I'm close to is Jewish, so maybe it's time to recognize that as a clue........ I'm an ex-NY'er, and even though live in Santa Fe, I still find myself drawn to an East Coast energy, directness and humor (you don’t have to actually be from the East Coast, by the way).... I'm an avid reader, well-read, articulate, playful, very fit, and creative. Things I like: singing harmony with an Elton John CD; anything by Bach; discussing the movie on the way home; the occasional duel with water pistols; garlic; friends over for dinner; family reunions in warm places; contagious laughter; lazy Sunday mornings in bed with my lover and the NYT....... I've been single for a couple of good, solid, introspective years and am now realizing that I miss the intimacy, playfulness, emotional sharing, touching, and the butterflies of anticipation when I see your car in the driveway....... Although my photos here are casual, I can still dress up real good when the occasion calls for it..... If you value integrity, feel comfortable saying what's on your mind, and are in love with this wondrous thing we call “life,” you and I will probably have an immediate connection. Yeah, I know, I'm 73, but I’m still looking forward to the next forty or fifty years, and if you want a vibrant, connected, exciting, deeply engaged, laughter-filled relationship, please get beyond it..... Being a good kisser gets you bonus points.
