I am looking for a companion with whom to share interests, conversation and activites. I am new to the DC/MD area and would like to explore my new neighborhood with someone interesting and fun. I am interested in politics, nonprofits, reading, traveling and learning about the world and enjoying conversation and free time. If you are curious about the world and are a positive person, I would like to get to know you.My son who I raised as a single parent is now almost out of college (!), leaving me free to do the things that have to be put on hold when you have a family. I am open to what will come next in my life, and hope to find love. I have a good idea of the kind of people I want in my life--positive, curious about the world rather than complacent or satisfied with what they already know, and who understand that much of what happens in our lives occurs because of choices we make, who also have compassion for the predicament of others.
