I'm a healthy older guy with a bewildering variety of interests in life (which is okay: I'm a writer, so it's part of the job description), loves to travel, talk with brainy people, and cook. I decided at the start of '11 that the only things even remotely worth pursuing are love and beauty, and, with the uncertainty of the former, I'm hell-bent on the latter. And totally open to the former, of course.
Looking for a younger woman who can inspire me and whom I can inspire, who's also old enough to be an appropriate partner. (I believe in the "French number," which is half your age plus 7 as the youngest: most of my friends fit into that slot, and partners have to be friends, too, obviously). If the age thing offends you (as it does some folks) we won't get along anyway. It's what experience has shown me that works best. In short, job description here is friend, lover, and partner: personal, and maybe professional.
You also have to have your own life and interests. Having completed that search will make you the kind of confident, balanced person I'm looking for. The words "tomboy," "geek," and "nerd" are not insults here, either. Tall is good, and so is eccentric, within limits.
I think this is possible. It's almost happened a couple of times recently. It could happen again tomorrow.
So...what are you doing tomorrow? Up for a challenge? Don't be afraid to send a note: I'm an engaging correspondent if the person on the other end of the exchange fascinates me.
