About me
Me: Exotic beauty who is conservative in her lifestyle but liberal in her politics, still believes in saying "Please" and "Thank you" and that there is still something to be said for good old fashioned manners. Well-read, well-traveled and well-educated, a big fan of chaos theory and the works of Ryszard Kapuscinski. My likes also include the sound of running water in streams and brooks, autumn, red lipstick. Not a big fan of tattoos or piercings.

You: Well-adjusted working professional, fiercely intelligent, tall, lean, not looking for your mother, on the same frequency, like going to rock concerts and enjoy spicy food. Your heart is still open to the universe and you have made peace with your past. You made the most difficult journey there is in life: from the mind to the heart. Life is a clean slate, no exes or kids hanging about. Late 30's to mid 40's, while you have experienced the cynical side of life (who hasn't?), nonetheless you still see the possibilities to life and are still willing to try.

Someone told me that the listings online are far better than the BS found on and but I don't know...a quick scan through these ads looks like the detritus and dross of humanity lurketh beneath methinks...So while I do think finding love in your life is possible, searching for it is a redundant effort at best.

Anyway, I don't have a lot of faith in these things especially for "those looking for love" or that "you can make love happen", it seems it happens when you're not looking and usually unexpectedly, usually when you're ready for it.

So having said that, I'll give anything a shot at least once and see what happens. I'm not looking for marriage, 2.5 kids, the house in the suburbs, following "The Formula", saving up retirement mutual funds and examining joint investments and essentially having a life punctuated by events dictated by the Hallmark Corporation or Edward Jones retirement ads.

Maybe we'll grow old together, maybe we won't but I'd much rather be with someone who is willing to elope to a remote beach overlooking the Indian Ocean in Madagascar, or at least be open to it.
We're both attractive romantics and idealists at heart, we both vote Democrat, Liberal, or Green, and we're both addicted to overseas traveling as well as having a healthy interest and love in what this world and life can give us.
