Divorced since 2005. (Life is much more peaceful and vastly more enjoyable now). Although unwaveringly loyal, it appears that I'm just not very good at marriage, and I think I'll pass on any further attempts to get it right.
I'm fortunate to have the coolest kid in the world. She is in college, and is now far enough away so she can safely regard me with richly deserved scorn and derision; when she's not pretending I don't actually exist. Nevertheless, I have always enjoyed every moment of her company, and I continue to do so whenever she's available and not too embarrassed to be seen in my vicinity. Did I mention that she's the coolest kid in the world?? Really. I can't think of anyone I'd rather spend time with.
My perfect match would (of course) be a blind woman with no sense of smell who is prone to severe lapses in judgment, but beyond that she should comfortable with herself, confident, and self sufficient. She MUST have a lively sense of humor, preferably one that's somewhat incongruous and a shade off-kilter. An appreciation of light-to-moderate sarcasm could be a great plus, as would an utter inability to take life seriously and a strong tendency to laugh at almost everything. Morals and scruples would be a refreshing change of pace, as well.
I'm not so much looking FOR anything or anyone as I am just "looking." I'm open to conversation, communication, friendship or whatever else might develop (as long as it doesn't involve serious pain, traumatic injury or the frequent wearing of a chicken suit.) I have no specific expectations, and therefore no agenda and no rigid circumstances or qualifications that need to be met. I hesitate to say that my kid comes first, since it should be a given for anyone who HAS kids, but she does indeed take precedence.
