Bright, witty, considerate, kind, cultivated. I tend to be shy and quiet, at first and have a definite serious side. Friends say I am warm, funny, thoughtful, intelligent, and fun to be with. Sharing a yummy meal and interesting conversation are high on my list. Whether I cook, you cook or we go out, sharing the time with someone special is the priority. A few candles and some soft music never hurt, either. I cook traditional recipes passed down to me and foods learned from my travels (Thai, Japanese, Moroccan, French, Italian etc.). Films and plays are a treat, if they are short on car chases and explosions and long on plot and character development. The ending doesn’t have to be handed to me on a ladle. I appreciate music and lean toward jazz. I am happy to lead, follow or get out of the way, whatever works. I am a Big Sister and member of Toastmasters.
