When I was a little girl I never dreamed of being a single parent with 2 very young children at the age of 33. I imagined it...as it was promised, "'til death do us part!" However, I learned that it just wasn't meant to be.
Since my failed marriage, I've had one long-term relationship that didn't survive a relocation (the long distance made it too difficult without any commitment) and a short dating relationship that ended a week before Valentin's Day this year! So, here I go again...Shalom! Shana Tova!
What would you like to know? Read my Kibitz responses or just inbox me, if you don't ask you won't know. Believe me there is so much more to me than I could ever express on this site! :) I like warm sunny beaches, boating (I've been known to catch a fish or two, three....)
I know my way around the kitchen and I love to cook! Mostly because I love food. So, If you don't mind a Gluten Free, low sodium and less sugar diet, then we'll be just fine! I've had be quite creative with my food preparation/consumpt ion for personal health reasons. It's not a choice I'd make otherwise since I truly love breaded, fried, pizza, Italian, etc., types of cuisine! ...and I love candy! I tend to shop at Whole Foods, Trader Joes and a couple of small independent places in the area called Nature's Temptations and Caraluzzi's. I used to shop another local independent store, Ancona, but sadly (after about 100 years and three generations) they went out of business earlier this year. Yes, I try to eat organic GMO free foods as much as possible as well. I'm not a health nut or fitness junkie, but I do try to take care of myself. I know I won't be running any marathons and I'll never be a super model or movie star (I just don't have "the look") but I am a work in progress. Just love me for me.
A friend of mine recently said, "You have good character." I do try to always do good and play by the rules! I'm not a devious cut throat. And I'm the one that would get caught if I even tried to get away with doing something wrong. But I'm still fun to hang out with. Just ask my kids about when I get "loopy!" :-)
Since I was in High School I have always given back to my local communities where ever I lived!
I enjoy wine tastings, good food, warm, sunny get-aways!
FYI - If I put you in my favorites, there is significant interest, contact me :)
BTW - We don't have to agree on everything! :)
I want a two-way relationship! I'm not looking for perfection. However, I do have certain expectations and know what I want. I'm looking for a commitment, the romantic fairy tale..."Happily, Ever After!" I'm an educated, cultured, well travelled woman with a lot to offer in a relationship.
I do go into NYC for dates, so no reason not to contact me, as I have a car and can usually find reasonable parking in Midtown. I can also take the train :)
Live life to the fullest, Laugh frequently, Love unconditionally!
What are you waiting for? Lets meet and be a JDate success!
