This is always a challenge, as it seems very one-dimensional, but I will do my best to show my true character. With a long career in corporate medicine, as a cardiology and lab tech, I'm now in customer service and training in a medical skin care company. With my outgoing personality, it's great to share information in an entertaining way, but hopefully I'm still very professional. My shih tzu gets to go to work with me, and we're close enough to walk so I don't have a car. I have a few great friends, no immediate family, and I enjoy small dinner parties as well as getting out to have a few drinks and listen to live music. I enjoy cultural activities, but I haven't been out to them recently. I have been a skiier, downhill (poorly, need lessons/cute coach) and a golfer (love it, but missed a couple of seasons). I wouldn't mind learning to curl...not my hair...it's already naturally curly. Cool to cold weather makes me feel alive, so I probably would always want to spend some time in this type of climate. I actually have traditional skills, which seem a little rare now. I love to gourmet cook, make other people clothing (and dogs); and entertain. I even cater other people's parties, just for the fun of it. I've found it a little daunting to get back out dating, after a self-imposed hiatus, but I'll be happy to be nudged out there again. I lived to go out for many years, and had my wild times as we all did, but it would be fabulous to have a great person to go through life's triumphs and tragedies with, laughing and crying all the way....well hopefully not crying. My dog loves cats, but I'm extremely asthmatic with them, as well as cologne/perfume, but other than that I'm a very healthy person. Let's share some witty banter and double entendres with a few glasses of wine or beer and find out more about each other!
