Well, I would like to think that I meet quite a few of the criteria!
I too am a cruise-a-holic and lack a companion to share the vacations with.
I certainly would consider my self well-spoken, well-versed, well-traveled, and witty.
I would welcome the opportunity to experience a fantastic cruise with a bright, educated, sophisticated, and aggressive woman.
I too am of the fair skinned Irish/Swedish variety, with brown hair and brown eyes.
Having spent many years as an executive chef, I too adore gourmet dining but need a companion to help to broaden my palate when it comes to wines...
Maybe today will be my lucky day!!!
