I am recently retired. I love life and I love living life. I enjoy the beach, boating, traveling, restaurants, fine wine, laughing, and socializing with quality people. It's just better living and sharing life with someone else. I’m from Long Island New York but have lived in South Florida for a long time. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree, and have traveled to many different countries in Europe including a month stay in Italy. I am accomplished in the culinary arts mainly Italian but I do pretty well with other cuisines as well. I enjoy being active, healthy and staying fit. Family and friends are important to me as well. If you would like to know more please say “Hi”. I would rather we chat, talk; engage in conversation to get to know each other instead of us reading through a long page in this section about each other. Also, just because someone looks like a good match “on paper”doesn’t necessarily translate to reality.
