My friends say that I am easy to be with, open minded, honest, thoughtful and compassionate. I treat all people the way I would like to be treated. Having laughter in my life is very important! . I love to read and I do love my kindle, but there's nothing like browsing in a bookstore. I enjoy music..listening..no t playing..and singing while driving when I think no one can hear me. I love learning new things. Starting each day with a smile is a must. My smile is contagious and I believe there is always something to smile about. I do not sweat the small stuff. At the end of the day what counts most are the good things in life and the difference I made in the lives of others. I want to add, for anyone who is concerned that my marital status is separated, I can assure you that my divorce is in the works. Also, I live in Lido Beach. We share a zip code with Long Beach and Long Beach is what JDate decides to recognize.
