In A Nutshell
Though it is impossible to provide a complete view on oneself in a profile such as this, here are a few of the things that make me “me”!
I am a spiritual person and believe in God. I have a sense of humor and quick-witted-ness; a great love of and appreciation for music. I volunteer as a lay chaplain and sing with Threshold Choir (an international a capella group that sings bedside to sick and dying patients). I have sung with church choirs, community choirs, and chorales for most of my life.
My family is very important to me. I am a new grandmother to the sweetest baby boy and I am taking great delight in this new role!
My friends are also very important to me. I have a few really good and true friends. I prefer having a few true friends to many so-so friends.
I have a degree in Microbiology/Chemistry. My career began as a Chemist and Laboratory Manager and evolved into management and director roles as a Safety, Health, and Environmental Professional. Currently, I am the Senior Safety, Health, and Environmental Manager at a large chemical plant in Chicago.
Smoking is a deal breaker!!
I am NOT interested in a casual or superficial relationship!
The One I Am Looking For
I am looking to meet a person who believes in God; someone who is intelligent, trustworthy, and honest.
This person must have integrity; a good sense of humor; like music (hopefully including classical) and singing (and hopefully happily endure my humming and singing!). This person must understand the importance of family and good friends.
Being respectful of all people and treating all people with dignity and courtesy is essential. It is important that you care about the environment; enjoy conversation about serious and deep topics. It will be welcome if you are nice looking and “easy on the eyes”.
Any relationship I am in must be one of equal partners. I am not more or less than my partner; neither is my partner more or less than me.
I am looking for a friendship that can develop into a serious, long-term, committed relationship.
I'd Just Like to Add
No photos? No go!
I also like cooking, photography, reading, writing, history, etc.
I started taking private singing lessons a couple of years ago and am enjoying that. Two years ago, I had the wonderful experience of being one of 260+ choral singers performing a new requiem music composition at Lincoln Center in NYC!
I like conversations about meaningful topics. I am committed to always learning. I am grateful for the blessings and challenges in my life.
I strongly dislike smoking.
I dislike and will not tolerate relationship drama, phoniness, smarminess, insincerity, and gratuitous, over-the-top compliments.
