Have you ever heard of synchronicity? Do you understand it? Do you buy it?
I do. One moment ago, we didn't know the other existed, and now we do. We'll never be the same again!
I am a curious, open-minded, open-eyed person who engages sincerely with everyone I meet, regardless of whether it's totally random, or if we're working together, or if our children are going to the same school, or if we've known each other since preschool. Every day I meet someone new. Every day. I strive to know everyone I meet, and for them to know me, because I don't believe we met by accident, and I want to know why we've met.
If you ask any friend of mine to describe me, you will probably hear words like, crazy, fun, smart, witty, irreverent, strong-willed, hedonistic, passionate, intense, opinionated, persistent, impulsive, direct, flirtatious. I don't do anything halfway. I'm all in, or not in at all.
Ideally, you've just read the above and get it. I love women, everything about them, and have no checklist of desired traits. I cannot "order" my ideal woman by checking the right boxes and "adding you to my shopping cart." So... all I ask is that you are a woman, you consider yourself desirable, can enjoy a good laugh, and can handle a sincere compliment. Anything further is out of our control at this point.
However, my aspirations include many other things, artistic, social, financial and romantic, that do not come neatly packaged in consistent gigging and other forms of traditional employment. I believe that many of you have attained a similar situation; successful, yes, happy, yes (hopefully), but longing still for our true meanings, to become what we really are. Finding each other is definitely part of these longings. Would you agree?
Oscar Wilde said, "The very essence of romance is uncertainty." I am truly a romantic; I'm not looking for security. I'm looking for the bubbles that change my wine into champagne. Is that you? Could that be us?
You'll notice that I have an irreverent sense of humor. If I think you're beautiful I just tell you. I'm often dressed in a tux. If you're smiling, I will tell you it makes me feel good.

My mathematical cognitive skills that tell me there are six items on this list
You are who you say you are. It's understood that we are all presenting ourselves in the most positive way on this site. I'm looking for a person who presents herself honestly. I believe in WYSIWYG.
Please live in or near Seattle. Like within 10 or 15 miles. I'm not interested in pen pals or long-distance flirtations. Look around you...your man is more likely to be living around your own corner!
I'm not expecting forever at first contact. I'll settle for just today. In a nutshell, I'm looking for a playmate or conversation partner today; if tomorrow we turn out to be soulmates as well, we'll both know it, right? So, send me a line! I always respond.
