I want to find someone who really "gets" me.
Please please please, if you want a sporty woman who loves things like camping or you don't really enjoy classical music or you don't care for poetry or theatre, film and art...please spare us both the awkwardness of reaching out. I am certain you are a terrific person but if you don't value what I value and want to spend your precious life on things I find worthy, we can't fall in love and I want to love someone again. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am not 'sportif'. I am an aesthete, currently working with people at risk and under-served populations and also directing an arts foundation. (Gemini thing, doing two things at once)
I am a Latin American Jew, a classically-trained singer still concertizing, with a background in television news documentary, copywriting for various media, a former theatre critic and columnist for a national magazine, arts administrator, a single-mother emeritus, poet. I have no idea "what" that makes me so it's hard to respond when someone asks me what I "do". Mostly, I write poems and sing. I collaborate with other artists. I stalk my son on facebook, like a good Jewish mother. And I wonder if I am meant to fall in love again.
I am looking for an intellectual equal with whom to share things that are meaningful to me. I hope to meet someone who will concur on what is meaningful. We're too old to pretend to like what our other likes. It's a waste of time. If you don't like what I like and you're only doing it to please me, you'll resent me. And I hate it when that happens.
I admire courage and originality. Sometimes, originality requires courage. Usually it does, in my experience. Worth it.
