I am not a normal American woman, whatever that is. For instance, I don't know how to date in the sense of going out with just one other person for purposes that exclude other people. I much prefer to go out with old and new friends in groups or whatever, doing the things one usually enjoys, just with someone among others. I want a man, or several men, to be friends with and maybe more, later, if it turns out to be that kind of friendship. I hope that makes sense. Oh, yes, and I am a terrible punster.
So, more about me. Highly intelligent, French speaker, lived in West Africa for years; enjoy talking about the world and politics, arguing about how best to defeat religion and free the masses, eating exotic and spicy food, but not cilantro. Never got much into the rock&roll side, the other two were enough for me, but if I have to do music I like acoustic folk, 70's rock, and opera. Gilbert & Sullivan rule.
More about you: Smart, funny, cook and eater, happy with difficult and engaging job, good family relationships, strong friendships, critical thinker, politically discontent (if you aren't outraged, you aren't paying attention), willing to talk in punch lines from jokes we share or lines from movies we've loved... and not merely seeking someone to go to bed with first and maybe not even bother to figure out a friendship later.
Have you show up where I am already hanging out with friends, see how you mesh. Or, have me show up where you are already hanging out with friends, see how I mesh. Go on a float down a river when it's hot, for an excursion in the snow in winter. Nothing with just the two of us, how unsocial that sounds to me. No movies, you can't talk... drinks & food are fun, outdoor festivals are fun, music that isn't so loud you can't talk is fun... or, alternatively, dancing to really loud music! From the 70's! With lots of people we know!
