I am Persian/Turkish American, living in Washington, D.C.,,,,,currently working as a associate professor at a University in Washington, DC, my home for the past 45 years, ......I have been told that I am consistent, and caring. I am quite athletic, walk 20,000 steps daily. Just started to look for a friend in 2021; after I lost my husband in 2013, As a conservative person, I am not looking for a short term relationship. I am not, have never been interested in the culture of a relationship without boundary or commitment which I consider unhealthy. My goal is to build a faithful joyful lasting relationship. I am faithful, I do believe in the divine power of God.........I do not like dishonesty, financial dependency, any form of addiction, poverty, and I believe a healthy relationship is about only real friendship, trust, honesty, commitment, kindness, and hopefully love,,,,, based on my DNA measurement/test, I am evidently proven to be biologically 41 years old.
