I'm looking for a fling - that will last the rest of my life. :-)
I'm happy with my life - I've achieved some of my goals and some

On a typical Friday night I am
For the past years my Fridays have revolved around teen life which
has been great. Now it's dinner with friends, a movie, curling up
with a good book or a performance at Stanford Lively Arts.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
