I am centered (it took about 60 years and a few life experiences, but better late than never) with a strong set of values, trust being the most important. At the same time, I understand that it is also important not always to take life or myself too seriously. I love to laugh and, even more, to make others laugh. I am intelligent and analytical but have no illusions about those strengths or their importance relative to other things. I play and/or actively pursue tennis, golf, yoga and exercise, guitar, reading and community involvement. Physically, I am an exceptionally young 62. I believe that romantic love is the nicest thing that can happen between a man and a woman but that it cannot truly be without the honest and mutual belief that romantic love, once kindled, also holds within it real potential for the companionate love necessary for a relationship to endure.
