45, Oakland, CAOriginally from the east coast, born and raised in Philly... Moved around a bit and have lived in San Francisco for the last 11 years, moved back to the East Coast for 5 years - NYC & Philly and now I am back in the Bay Area. I love Great Food, Dining and Cooking and equally as much I really enjoy Eating. You could say that I am a typical 'Foodie' & even go as far to say that I am 'food-obsessed'... So much so that in my free time, I like to write about my favorite dining experiences and food in general. I go by the name Urban Food Maven... You can find me there bc I'm not officially on here... I have a very healthy appetite in many respects, especially for the Passions in my life... namely Food, Dance, My Family and Travel...Besides my Love of Food, I Love to Dance Salsa. I also love to Travel and am certified in scuba diving. I am a free, independent, open-minded and passionate & social being who just wants to enjoy life for what I can make out of it. I am Straightforward... and Passion and Honesty are BIG for me. Also, I am very Family-oriented and it is important to me that you are too... I DO take the bull by its proverbial horns and personally believe that it is up to you to make things happen... I do not believe in regret or in that cop out of a phrase 'I'm bored'... I am bold and unabashed and a sucker for a great Smile... So there you have it... Take me or leave me.

71, Oakland, CAAlthough I've only lived in the East Bay for two years, I feel right at home. There's so much to love about Oakland, where I live. I love the combination of a vibrant city life--concerts, plays, movies, restaurants (I'm a retired English professor, so all this is right up my alley) and access to nature--hikes in Tilden, birding, biking, wonderful parks and gardens. I love good books, good conversations, good meals. I like trying new things, going to new places, meeting new people. I moved here in 2015 from Ft.Worth, TX to be near family after my husband of 37 years died (my daughter, son-in-law, and 18 month old granddaughter live nearby) and I love being near them, but more than just family, I've found a new home. I care deeply about social issues, especially the rights of women, children, and the marginalized in society. I'm an active member of St. Columba's parish and feel blessed to have found such a welcoming, vital church home. St. Columba, an African-American community with an international & inter-ethnic congregation, is deeply committed to social justice and community outreach. I'm also involved with a Catholic women's group called WINGS that meets weekly at St Theresa's in Piedmont. This spring I did a 10 week Ignatian Spirituality retreat there. My faith is very important to me. I'd love to share my life and interests with someone who, like me, is committed to living a Christian life and serving others.
