My self-summary
**For the man who understands:
I am a grammar snob. I can tell via your words how you construct thoughts, if you are who you say you are. A literary way with a sentence is seductive to me. Thus, it has been said.**

**please read Addendum as well before you write to me. I am most appreciative. Thank you.

My path has been an adventure
A way to learn about life

Now I consider this next tour
With a man i respect, little strife

He dances and laughs and listens
Our tango is never a whim

For hearing the other one's truth
Is a big plus in my book for him

I'm silly and willful and wild
Poetic, complex and sincere

He is brave and strong and gentle
Worldly, insightful and here

There is more, i am only beginning
I'm like no one you've ever met

If you'd like to begin the first inning
Your move now, my number to get

___________________________________________
On a typical Friday night I am
working
writing
dreaming
dining
dancing
fantasizing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i am a handful. you must be evolved, brave, honest, strong, confident to enjoy the contradictions and beauty in me.
You should message me if
You are ready for a relationship, your heart is open, you know how to love, your life and experiences have taught you much yet not left you too broken, or broke, you believe in something, have a passion in life, have some financial stability, you delight in the dance of 'growing up,' you still have a rich sense of adventure, you are willing to be honest, and you live nearby, close enough so we can realistically get to know each other realtime....AND... You are prepared to actually talk, meet, not stay behind a computer screen via email and text too long. i am 'old-school' that way.

ADDENDUM---IF INTERESTED, PLEASE READ:

1--Please write a thoughtful paragraph of introduction like a real gentleman. No "hi pretty"--- i will erase this immediately.

2--Please note that "God-fearing," or "Republican/Conservative" or "Military man" and even Long Distance, will NOT be a match.

3--I ask that you answer at least some of the OK Cupid questionnaire. It offers something about who you are, perhaps sparking my curiosity. I call it "reciprocity…."
