I like myself, and have an interesting life. I have good work to keep me busy, and a large and varied social circle.
So, why am I fishing my O.K. Cupid lure, if I have such a complete life?
Simple. I live in a large Artist colony, and my studio is a block away, in another enclave of artists.
I live and work in a surprisingly insular world. This city may have 11 million people in it, but you couldn't prove that by me. My life is in an extended family situation that is warm, comforting, vibrant and supportive, I live in a happy place surrounded by my brothers and sisters.
And, that's the rub.
I don't think I'm out on a limb when I point out that dating one's sister is a bad idea. It only leads to uncomfortable family dinners, and children with sloping foreheads, and low I.Q's.
There can be no question about it. It would be best to date outside of my immediate gene pool.
If you have no idea what The Brewery is, if you haven't been to Big Art, if you haven't made it to Burning Man, if you don't know people with names like Crunchy Zen Momma, Kevissimo, or Funky Eddy, I might like to meet you.
I am more then willing to show you around, and introduce you to my friends. Well, probably not Funky Eddy, but everyone else is very pleasant, and will probably say nice things about me.
Like I said, I lead a full and exciting life, and I have lots of stories to tell.
Not much scares me, I don't drink, I'm not much for catting around, and I treasure honesty and loyalty..
Women deserve respect, and my complete attention.
I don't play cards or Scrabble, but I will play backgammon until tomorrow morning.
One final thing, I am a package deal. I am absolutely committed to the health, and happiness of my darling cat, Fiona.
