First, let me say -
Some have an aversion to dating outside of their immediate geographic comfort zone. (NYers, I'm speaking to you.) I have kids, siblings and many relatives sprinkled around the boroughs and Northern Jersey. I am frequently in the area for family events, (sometimes, against my will) or for big-city fun. Besides, for love, 2-hour drives are a walk in the park.
I'm very easy-going and usually unflappable. Quiet time and laid-back events are more appreciated than formal affairs with structured agendas, (besides, I don't wear ties).
I would love to take a long river rafting trip, (you know, starry skies, singing crickets,... mosquitoes, bears, toothless hillbillies..), but need to find a tough chick willing to rough-it.
In the past I traveled a great deal for business, and as a result, have developed an appreciation for my place in the world as an American and a Jew.
I love to laugh and enjoy those who are fun and lively. Some great weekend ideas might include a roaring fire in a cabin on a lake, beaches, biking, skiing or traveling somewhere interesting or naturally beautiful.
I drink a fair amount of chocolate milk, chocolate shakes/ice cream, (Edy's is my fav' so far), and have, more than once, enjoyed chocolate chip cookies with milk,...for dinner. (Not so much anymore,- too hard to work it off).
I live in an old New England house built in 1902, with Ozzy, (6 yr. old border collie). It's great, but frequently too quiet. I am never without something to fix or update, so boredom is not an issue.
That's enough for now, I need to save some stuff for later.
