My husband passed away in 2003 & even though I have been socializing w/ friends & dated a few times, I miss that companionship which is present in a really good, strong relationship. I am comfortable with all age groups & love experimenting & trying new things. I love to travel (both domestic & international) I also love exploring & discovering my hometown - NYC. I enjoy good food (good doesn't necessarily mean a trendy new restaurant but can be a hole in the wall where nobody speaks English) and love to experiment & try new and different types of food. I enjoy cooking altho I admit that cooking for one doesn't excite me. I am also content to snuggle at home with the right person & enjoy long talks or mutual silences. I enjoy all types of music and arts and volunteer at the local theatre (Stamford Center for the Arts) as an usher which enables me to see and enjoy a wide variety of shows & concerts and enjoy the company of people instead of sitting home alone. I moved to CT when my job relocated in 1997 but am still a New Yorker at heart. I enjoy movies, museums and long drives in the country. I have a wonderful big, black shaggy dog that we rescued 12 years ago, who has a very definite personality all his own - he is a North Shore Animal League special no idea what breeds he might be.
