I am a straight forward person who is not into playing games with a strong sense of right and wrong. I say what I believe, and try to do what I say. I have three daughters, but now I am an empty nester they are grown, now it is my turn. Everyone seems to talk about how happy and fullfilled they are, and only need to add that special person, or "life is short so might as well enjoy it ." While that may be true, it is not the whole truth. I believe that real Jewish values, not "kosher style," provide a way to live in the world without being corrupted by all the vices of modern life. What I am truly looking for is a woman who lives her values and is looking for a life of meaning, commitment, and growth. I am an educated, cultured person who will surprise you with my breath of knowledge and interests. While I live in the midwest, I have travelled a lot, and lived abroad for a number of years I am not provincal. I occasionally visit England and Europe. I am not so serious, I like to have fun, but we should all remember that as Jews we were once all slaves in Egypt, and to take that understanding into out lives.
