Belying my chronological age, I am a young and vibrant loving to explore the highs and the lows - fine arts off-beat experiences, fine dining and greasy spoons, especially ethnic haunts, and spending time with smart and quirky friends. Divergent opinions don't faze me, but TV/radio talk show sound bites from any direction do. I'm a New Yorker "somewhat" tempered by 20 years in Atlanta; I'm a grown-up 60s kid but it has left its imprint. My kids are grown and verging on independence, and I work because I love what I do. I'm seeking someone thoughtful, respectful, supportive, honest, and financially stable without more than the usual baggage of getting to a certain time and place in life. I would love to build a friendship and explore the possibilities for a relationship.
