My self-summary
Me? Strong-willed, independent, FUN, and slightly sarcastic. I'm not for everyone. Let me repeat: I AM NOT FOR EVERYONE.
(I feel the need to stress that fact because I just ended a short relationship with someone who said that my profile should include a warning, so there it is.)
If you cannot handle someone who is strong-willed and independent, but you like the way I look, PLEASE PLEASE look away. I am not going to change at this point in my life even if you're really cute.
Please note the emphasis on the word FUN. I am fun to be around, and have a lot of friends. If you are the possessive type and can't handle that, please look away.
Thank you for the messages that tell me I'm pretty. They make my day, but I don't always have time to answer. Please don't message a few days later and call me a bitch. Please, please, boys... let's play nice on the Internet, or I'm taking my toys and going home. Got it?
What I’m doing with my life
I AM LOOKING FOR A BOYFRIEND. My job takes a lot of my time... weekends and evenings, and YES travel too. I'm looking for someone who can handle someone who can't be around all the time, but if you're the right fit then you're probably too busy to notice. I have a full life and I'm looking for someone to augment it, not replace it. That said, when I am not working I want to be out having fun, or in having fun. No couch potatoes, please!
I’m really good at
Picking out men's clothes.
Removing black scuff marks.
Understanding song lyrics and subtext in film.
Making martinis.
Tap dancing.
The first things people usually notice about me
Sometimes when people see me for the first time they seem surprised. Or maybe they're scared.
Strangers buy me flowers. Storekeepers seldom make me pay for my purchases. Cops pull me over and then give me a ticket. Usually the ticket is for multiple offenses.
Not sure what any of that means, but it's all I know about how people see me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books... anything by Truman Capote, David Sedaris, Laura Hildebrand, Augusten Burroughs, Jeffrey Eugenides... to name just a few.
Movies... can't think of anything at the moment, but I like anything with a good script and really, really hate action adventure flicks, sci fi, or anything with a lot of special effects (even though I have a kid who makes those films and does really well.) Musicals - any and all, but getting a little tired of the old stuff. Food? Whatever is being served will be fine. I mostly eat peanut butter sandwiches when I'm home alone.
Six things I could never do without
1. Pets.
2. Friends.
3. A good view.
4. Vodka, diet tonic and diet cranberry juice.
5. Water and snow to ski on.
6. Jazz hands, and a BIG tap dancing finale.
I've been living alone for a while, so I guess I can do without a man in my life, but it would make opening jars and reaching things without a step ladder easier. And I do so love to dance, which is better done with a man... among other things...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
All the things I forgot to do that day.
Why is it so difficult to find a f-ing boyfriend?
On a typical Friday night I am
Or at the theatre.
Or visiting a dying friend or family member.
Or home, sick.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
My cat thinks I am fascinating. His worship of me is a little stalker-like and sometimes gives me the creeps.
You should message me if
You want to be my boyfriend.
You know how to drive a boat. Bonus points if you have a boat. Extra bonus points if you're cute.
You should also message me if you have read my book. I always like to hear from readers.
You should message me if you find any of the above intriguing and have interest in learning more, or if you have wisdom to share.
Please note in your message that you have READ THE WARNING and agree to the terms of contact.
The two of us
