For now, I'm fortunate to have my health, a home, a few cherished close friends, and an online job that lets me earn a modest living and save a little too. There's a lot that I like about myself: My worldview and my general outlook on things, the curious, compassionate, respectful, and appreciative character I've worked hard to cultivate, my sense of humor, and a closet relatively free of skeletons. What I don't have is a car (or even a driver's license, to be honest), much of an education, a clear direction in life, a whole lot of life experience, or the kind of social life or confidence I'd like to have. Solvable problems all, but not exactly hallmarks of online dating success.
I'm not terribly hopeful about meeting someone new on this site with my life being what it is, as much as I'd like to now. I'm keeping my profile up because I've been on this site for a lot of years and during some of them it's been surprisingly good to me, and because I want to remain accessible to the people who know me through it. If you've read this far and still think you'd like to get to know me, I'd love to hear from you. Hopefully you'll find something a little more appealing here in the future. Here's what I've had up for the last little while:
I am an eccentric, poorly educated, self-proclaimed amateur philosopher. I'm interested in meeting women who would like to discuss books, cartoons, the nature of time, Oxford commas, and other stuff, possibly while drinking. I'm a passionate person who is deeply committed to compassion, respect, honesty, and love. I don't drive, I'm not monogamous, and I'm terrible at doing things just because I'm supposed to. I live and work on the internet. If you're someone who finds herself short of breath from the effort of deciding which book to buy, I'll probably think you're pretty cool. There will be more stuff here later.
