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!

Now...if you're serious about that pony... I happen to know the right connections.

Guy friends in the North East? Uh... howzabout that pony?
Alas. It would have to be a long-distance pony....
Have truck and trailer --- will travel :P

i like the classical approach

Demand Dragons. Pet ones. ones that will do your will.

Oh wait. that... hrm. A dragon who will do your bidding would be quite a date on friday night.

If you decide to go the internets route, hitch your star to 1001 First Dates and simply relax and enjoy the entertainment it will bring. It seriously takes some weeding out. You'll probably be attracted to the ones who write a good line, but damn, how many of them just don't present well IRL. Sigh.

I did find my Mr. Delicious from an ad I threw on Craigslist one night in a fit of amused pique, seeking the Last First Date Ever.

Seems to have worked.

Good luck. Keep a sense of humor and always know where the exits are located.

The problem is I don't train dragons.

I am getting more offers of ponies than boyfriends.

You know, this tells me something.

My life has too much derby derby. Not enough boyfriend.

There's something to be said for a trusty steed. :D

Why not? I mean sure, it's a dangerous job, but the hazard pay must be off the charts!
