From academic to zany...

I’m funny, fun & interested in everything in the universe. I read A LOT. Nonfiction. But on the other hand, I collect antique sock monkeys. See what I mean from my headline? I tend to be slightly reserved... until I get going. Then I come out of my shell to learn what other people have experienced in their lives in the way of travel, reading, employment. I’m a mature lover. Right now, my cat is sitting next to me, hicupping. Other one is hiding under the couch. Would love to find a partner who reads, knows lots about the world, loves humor (I find it anywhere, or manufacture my own), has great values, loves family, and who would like an honest, genuine relationship.

Favorite booksCurrently reading “Superstorm: Nine Days Inside Hurricane Sandy.” Really interesting. I love reading non-fiction— buying used books on Amazon is better than taking out yet another student loan (esp at age 66!), and NO HOMEWORK!

Always wanted to tryAfter reading a history of Newfoundland, Canada, I decided it would be cool to drive the length of the Trans-Canada Highway, if I had a companion with a car that would make it. Have to stop often to make friends along the way & learn more local history, too, of course!

Look for in a partnerSomeone who loves learning new things, sharing what they know & learning from others. Who sees the best in people.
On the first dateI’ve always joked that watching “Family Feud” with a potential date would certainly reveal a lot about ourselves in our own answers... a first date should be low-key, no pressure, time to talk, and talk.
Maybe grab an omelette at someplace like Perkins (no need to dress up!), and visit like crazy. ?
