*You are intelligent, have a good sense of humor, and like a good
conversation. Although certainly not a requirement, I prefer to
write to people who live somewhere not impossibly far from

Indiana.) Or even places like Chicago
or Madison, Wisconsin
visit fairly often, if you have a tolerance for distance. I'd like
to meet the people I write to someday.

*You understand why I had a sign on the bulletin board in my former
office that read "Curiosity killed Schrödinger's cat
or maybe not."
*You're female and you're hoping that fantasy artist Ray Van Tilburg
takes my suggestion and comes up with an illustrated t-shirt that
reads "Techno-Tart". And you'd probably wear one if he did, just

BOTTOM 15% of the population of "Storge" on the Love Styles Profile

I'm NOT the type who looks for "friendship first"
and hopes it
builds into love. It usually just doesn't work that way with me. I

think that I am too old for you. My interest in dating someone,

interests in common with younger people than I do with people my
own age. The "% Friend" and "% Enemy" numbers seem to match better

if you want to talk, Please feel free to write me.

there said that I was too restrictive and should try to date women
even if they ARE significantly younger than I am. So I've
