Well...this way of meeting people is so common these days, especially for kids through 40-50 somethings, but as I'm not
there, it feels strange although I do know there are very nice people also trying to find what I'm looking for; that would be
someone with whom I could develop a friendship which might develop into something more, with time, luck and chemistry.
Living alone as a widow, after a good marriage of 26 years, is hard and lonely...not thinking about remarrying right now. I guess one should never say "never." So...that said...
I'm tallish (5ft-8in.) slender, fit, work out 4-5 times a week. I love the usual things: good movies, plays, concerts of various kinds of music, I read incessantly, love meeting new people, although I am a bit shy, outward appearances to the contrary. Music has been central in my life since age l0 and am now singing again in a wonderful choir, after 12 years away. I feel so fortunate to be able to do so at this point in life...
Education has always been important; I love the process of learning for its own sake. I have an advanced degree in
an area of Psychology, have worked with college students for some years and also with medical patients and families
struggling with various chronic illnesses and conditions. Teaching is also great fun as well as public speaking.
I also adore being with infants and children, playing, reading, teaching, whatever they're up to, I'm there. My late spouse
considered me a "pied piper with them...and have had a sub specialty in diagnostics from infancy through the life span.
HUMOR is centrally important. Friends consider me funny, witty, at times hilarious and wacky. My comedic hero's and heroines are Gracie Allen, Lilly Tomlin, Bette Midler, Earnie Kovacs, Jonathon Winters, Robin Williams, among others.
To be able to see life's ironies and our own foibles makes daily living easier and lighter.
I am religiously ecumenical, believe in honoring differences, honesty, kindness, being nonjudgemental and patient
These qualities are also important in others.
A good evening out?? So many options: solving a world problem over dinner..Ha, having something to eat and going to
a good movie (the last one I saw that I thought quite good...The Imitation Game; going for a drive, any season; going to
Park City and just wandering around looking at too expensive clothes and the interesting people who come in (did so
on Sunday with a nephew and had great fun.) Going up one of the canyons just to smell the fresh air and walk around,
watching a movie or ball game on T.V., sitting in front of the fire while doing the last two are also important.
Although I hate flying, I love to travel; have done some but am always looking for a new place to go..going alone is
least preferred option so this is also important in a relationship. Regional, national and intnl. are all fun.
