And here I am again, feeling a little ambivalent (Pretty
unremarkable I guess. It's not like anybody here is going "Woohoo!
online dating.) The people I meet day to day through work and music
skew a lot younger than me. I enjoy that, but I recognize that I'm
at a different stage in my life than they are. And so I'm widening
my net, hoping to meet someone like minded with some spark.
I envy the people on the site who have such a strong idea about how
they want a relationship to play out with a list of criteria to
help insure it. I think the biggest curve ball in life is that the
things the things we think will make us happy often don't. And that
as a creative type, the irony is not lost on me that I've a culled
a lot of art from relationships that didn't come out they way I'd
planned. Go know.
Personally, I'd think myself lucky to find someone that I liked
being around a lot and see where it went from there.
I do miss having someone around that I care for and cares for me.
It is important to me ,though, that it doesn't eclipse other things
that make us happy and whole. Maybe that goes without saying. Or
maybe I just need to find someone with a creative passion who feels
the same way.
Hope y'all find someone.

PS. Please, I'm not looking for a pen pal!
I've had several extended internet courtships here, only to meet in
person and not click. Profiles and extended correspondences based
on them have been pretty inadequate barometers of chemistry and
compatibility. So, I'd rather meet casually earlier rather than
later and save on the wear and tear.
