A little about me...
I am difficult. I look equally awful in the "little, black dress" as I do in jeans.
I am a New Yorker, both by birth and temperament, with a lot of Westchester County upbringing thrown in.
I worked as a reporter for a small newspaper when I lived in New York. I hope that knowing that makes it understood that I am looking for someone who has knowledge of and appreciation for the spoken and written word, although I know that men tend not to be as good as women in those areas. (There is genetic basis for it.)
There are a couple of non-negotiable issues for me: no smokers and no one who is terribly overweight. I am not a fan of cancer, and I had a weight problem, which has been under control for two decades, and I do not want to be in a situation that might facilitate the return of that issue.
If you have a profile in which you speak of all the things you don't want in a woman, such as "controlling, talky, etc.," then it is likely that you STILL haven't recovered from your divorce because, if you had, you wouldn't already be so controlling and/or demanding of a complete stranger.
That's it. Those who have already written me should now have enough information about me that you should regret writing me based upon just a
About the one I'm looking for...
Kind, really intelligent, (you know who you are,) compassionate, animal lover, spiritual, offbeat sense of humor, appreciation of the arts and classical music would be nice, (which should come as no surprise,) appreciation of nature, someone who enjoys reading. Again, that should eliminate nearly everyone ... And you've basically eliminated yourself from consideration if you send me a "flirt," since that would mean either you haven't read my profile or, even worse, you haven't comprehended it. Needless to say, (although I will,) if you are a Tea Party adherent or a Conservative, we would NOT get along.
I'd just like to add...
I have a VERY dry sense of humor ... and I can navigate a mortgage or refinance with no problems completely on my own. My favorite TV station is CNBC. Oh, and I am an introvert, which is different from being shy.
While I should be flattered, I am astonished that some of you have looked at my profile as many as 17 times. I'm not that great of a catch to warrant that degree of attention and, candidly, it makes me think of you as kind of creepy or a stalker. In the same spirit, if I have looked at your profile once, I immediately delete your profile when it turns up afterward - unless I have saved it, and I've saved very few of them.
The last words in the first section, (for some reason omitted,) are "few photos."
