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 have a good number of friends who are

...did you seriously put geeky and active that close together on a list of requirements? I mean, I know active geeks, but they're sort of a rarity, aren't they?...


Not so sure about the location requirement, sadly. Which is a pity.
I married a guy whose idea of bonding was watching TV for hours on end.

I like to hike and climb rocks.

Not such a good match. :-P

But you know, there's dating and there's marriage, and they're different. And I'm flexible. *g*
I dunno, my guy likes to hike & climb rocks and watch TV for hours on ends. It's a matter of balance.

I have put out the call. Where is Fairfield from Hartford? (I'm in the middle of NYS; I'm not so good at other geography)
'Bout an hour.

OMG, I'm not looking for the Find Bear A Date meme. *g* That defeats the point of asking my friends....
*chuckles* Well, livejournal is the quickest way for me to reach my CT friends. I can delete it as quickly as I posted it.
but then you get me's who're interested, but not within a local commuting distance ;) Darn you Lissa, and I'm wishing I lived closer.
