First, let me say that I am seriously interested in a long-term relationship. I am not opposed to marriage, but I don't feel I need to be married. I also love children and I have devoted my life and career to their well-being; I just don't feel compelled to have my own. I would love to meet a smart, adventurous, kind, sexy man who is close to my age. I am passionate about learning. I love to read because it allows me to experience other worlds and helps me to better understand the world I inhabit. I intend to travel the world and I am off to a pretty good start. I lived in Italy for four years and I do hope to live in Europe again. My favorite job right now is being an auntie. I would do just about anything for the people I love. I would say that I am kind, patient, fun-loving, and a little goofy. I love to cook and bake. I love trying new food. I do work out about 4 times a week so I can feel and look good. I am a movie fanatic (Thank goodness for Netflix!) I also love going to hear my brother's band play.
