When most people hear that I am a college professor they think I must be some sort of "book geek". Well I am here to tell you that I don't fit that stereotype. Sure I love to learn and to get others excited about learning, but I am down to earth and very easy to talk to. I generally prefer casual to formal but am comfortable in most social settings. I adore my children although now that they are teenagers it is becoming more interesting -- nothing like watching sweet kids morph into complicated teens!! I grew up in New York but have been in the Charlotte area for the past 20 years and love the Carolinas. My ideal match is someone who enjoys life, who has an appropriate balance between work and family/friends, who likes to explore new places, and is willing to enjoy life. Most importantly, I am looking for someone who does not bring a lot of baggage to the table (unless it's the traveling kind!), and has a good sense of humor. Must love boats and traveling. Could this be you???
