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!


If we were anywhere near close enough, my friend Todd is very single, geeky, a fencer like me, funny, sweet, LOVES cats, but Illinois is definately not in your area.

(The PC opines that he can move closer.)
LOL that is always a possibility, if things progressed that way... the one requirement you have that he might not be able to meet is the confidence. He has social anxiety disorder, pretty bad. But otherwise is a great guy, oh and he loves to camp. He was a boy scout growing up, he was in the herbalists club here in Peoria. I can email you pictures if you would like?
I'm pretty set on the no long distance relationships thing, I'm afraid. I'm not looking for anything serious right now, and I have been down the long distance route.
Can't say as I blame you, long distance relationships suck. Also, congrats on being divorced!
