I have been lucky enough to have had a very happy and successful life both professionally and in my private life. I have been single for a couple of years and feel it's now time to get back in the dating world. I am a very feminine and domestic woman with some very strong beliefs as far as what kind of a relationship and what sort of man I'm looking for. I'm not a casual dater and am looking for a serious. long term relationship. I am passionate, compassionate, understanding, accepting and am told very easy to get along with and am looking for the same in a man. I am a very optimistic person. I'm told I have a great sense of humor...I think humor is a very important part of life as it has gotten me through a few of the rough patches life has thrown my way. I love to cook and entertain at home, travel,and enjoy trying new things and going places I've never been before. I love music (having been a professional singer for 25 years), the theater, movies and anything artistic. I have very eclectic tastes in most things and find beauty in just about everything. I'll warn you right up front, I am a hopeless romantic. I love candle light, brandy in front of a roaring fire, walks on the beach under the stars and think that a passion for life as well as each other is essential for true happiness. If any of this is what you're looking for in a woman, I'd love to hear from you. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
