And while you're at it, I want a pony.

February 29th would have been my second wedding anniversary, if I were still married. (The alert among you will have already figured out that this means I got married in 2000.) I've been separated for over two years now, and divorced for six months, and I have realized something recently.

I am ready to start dating again.

Of course, I have no idea how a self-employed artist would meet people. A friend of mine has been exploring the wilds of Craig's list for similar purposes, but her results have been mixed enough that I'm totally hesitant to try that. On the other hand, I'm also enough at a loss that on the way home from Fall River (it's about a two hour drive) tonight I started composing a personal ad.

Let's see.

Self-employed, financially independent artist seeks person(s) for acquaintanceship, flirtation, possible escalation. I am: divorced, female, 36, eclectic, geeky, mercurial, empathic, intellectual, opinionated, radical, insecure, overscheduled, tactile, energetic, intimidating, picky, prickly, defensive, spontaneous, amusing, tough, devoid of ownership issues, bad at communicating needs strongly, moderately traumatized but so over the glamour of my own tragic past, and can cook. I am looking for someone(s) who is/are: 25-55, single or in an open relationship, solvent, outdoorsy, creative, adventurous, ethical, ambitious, geeky, competent, active, curious, friendly, funny, and not a picky eater.

Anybody not within a reasonable commute of Hartford, CT, need not apply.

And then it occurred to me... I could ask my Internets!  So there you go.

Internets, set me up with your friends!


I don't have any surplus gentlemen friends at the moment, but I've been directed to tell you that you're emphatically included in a party invitation for 3/29 in Troy, NY.

Two hours away, no further than Boston, really. And very congenial folks. And Munchkin was mentioned among the evening's amusements.

Maybe they've got a surplus gentleman!

Also, I do get a lot of entertainment out of OKSt^H^HCupid.
Mmm. Parties with a bunch of strangers when I am on deadline and need to be home on my computer.

Not so much, for this introvert. But thank you! *g*
I did explain to cluegirl and aquila_dominus that you were likely to be on deadline but I would mention it.

Ellen and Delia are also on the invite list, don't know if they'll be attending.

You should meet Clue and Dominus at some point, though. They would not feel at all like strangers.
I should. *g*
Oh, screw it. Are you driving out? And what's the dress code?
I am almost certainly driving out, and Our Hostess is right here -- ask kingsgrave! I'm assuming Geek Informal rules apply -- jeans-and-T-shirt are just fine, but if you have fancier things you enjoy wearing, you can wear them and enjoy the compliments.
Check back with me closer to the day? I will stress out about it if I put it on the calender now, but if it's a fun maybe thing rather than Another Commitment, I will be more likely to enjoy doing it.

If that's okay with kingsgrave, I mean. I do not wish to presume by not-exactly-RSVPing.
